Blue Mountain Engines is a Zamperla Junior Regatta ride, and features four themed carriages based on characters from the Thomas & Friends universe. It replaced Terrance's Driving School in August 2011, with the other ride being moved to an area near Farmer McColl's Farm.
Able to hold up to 32 riders at a time, including 16 adults, Blue Mountain Engines was the first new addition to Thomas Land since the area opened in March 2008. The four carriages are themed around Sir Handle, Skarloey, Rheneas and Peter Sam, all of whom feature in Thomas & Friends storylines working on the Skarloey Railway. They travel around an undulating circular path, in a similar style to classic “caterpillar” rides.
