5 Reasons You MUST Visit Edaville USA in Carver, MA
“We received an Edaville Elite Membership in exchange for our posts. All views expressed are our own.”
This past weekend my family and I attended a special VIP event for a very small group of influencers at Edaville USA. If you are not familiar with this hidden gem, Edaville USA is located in Carver, MA and is just roughly 30 minutes from my home. For years, I had assumed Edaville USA (formerly Edaville Railroad) was just trains. My parents thought that too so we never once had the chance to visit this actually AMAZING amusement park.
At the Edaville USA VIP event which occurred during Pirates Weekend, we had a chance to tour the entire facilities, and learn some history about the park. One of the largest misconceptions about Edaville USA is that people assume there are just trains as attractions. However, as we experienced this is not the case at all. In fact, Edaville USA now has over 90 rides and attractions and is actually one of the MOST family friendly amusement parks in Massachusetts.
From Dino Land to Thomas Land, and even seasonal events like Festival of Lights–there is just so much to do at Edaville USA! Since many of you are probably wondering what kinds of attractions this park boasts, I thought it would be helpful to share 5 Reasons You MUST Visit Edaville USA in Carver, MA. I truly hope this helps to get you exploring the park with your family this summer, fall, or even winter!
5 Reasons You MUST Visit Edaville USA
Thomas Land: Do you have a child who loves Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends? If so, you MUST head to Edaville, USA! They have North America’s ONLY Thomas Land, and in fact, it is the largest in the World! Situated on over 11 acres of land; Thomas Land brings The Island of Sodor to life with Tidmoth Shed, Knapford Station, and 11 themed amusement park rides. They even have daily shows which we got to participate in that are super interactive with Sir Topham Hatt, a friendly conductor, and real train steam. Best off all, there is actually a real-life Thomas train your family can ride on!
Dino Land: Are your children little dinosaur fanatics? If so, Dino Land at Edaville is for you! This walk through adventure set in a nicely groomed, wooded area is complete with 23 life-size animatronic dinosaurs. Your child will love learning about each dinosaur and hearing their sounds. The scenery is so intricate as well and even looks like an old amusement park that dinosaurs took over.
Attractions: Love old fashion rides like the Tea Cups or Ferris Wheel? Edaville USA has you covered with over 90 rides and attractions, they have a great mix of new family friendly rides. I personally love that my kids can go on mostly everything at this park. I would say it is the perfect place for children under 12 to enjoy. Skip going to New Hampshire, and check out Edaville for an amazing atmosphere that is 110% family-friendly. They also have quiet rooms for children who may be over stimulated and a large, clean room for moms to breastfeed in.
Food & Shopping: No amusement park is complete without good old fashion fair food. Edaville has five separate places to get food. Choose from burgers and fries to BBQ favorites. They even cater to some common food allergies like gluten. Best of all, we found the food to be very reasonably priced for our family to enjoy.
To remember the fun you had at Edaville, they have seven themed gift shops where you can buy items that are found in that area of the park. From Dino Land treasures to Thomas Land finds; they have something for everyone including t-shirts, stuffed animals, decor, and candy.
Seasonal Attractions: During the late fall/early winter season Edaville has their breathtaking Festival of Lights. With over 17 million lights, the park truly illuminates and sparkles at night. It is such a beautiful site to see–especially from the train! We loved our scenic train ride which took us through the tiny illuminated house village and scenic cranberry bog routes. It was such a site to enjoy with a hot cup of cocoa.
In the month of October, they will also be hosting Pumpkins AGLOW in the park. You can get the dates on when that will be happening here.
Parking is also ALWAYS free and abundant at Edaville USA! You can view the reasonable tickets prices on their official site, and learn more about why you should visit! Learn more about their Thomas themed birthday parties and why you should visit.
