The Edaville Railroad is one of Carver's Landmark attractions. Set amongst Cranberry Bogs, the little Rail Road Line Runs around the Bogs and is enjoyable for families. At Christmas time, the bogs and ponds are all lit with Holiday Lights and the Train Ride really is magical. There are rides to be had for the kids, back at the park,... More

Visited the Pumpkins aglow and was surprised at all of the improvements this place was going through. Per my last review, this place was stuck in the old days of ancient rides and weird displays and the pretty much the main attraction was the train. Try visiting here now and you will see newer rides, the pretty cool Dino Land... More

Thank you for your positive review! Peacedale is getting a complete makeover, I believe we have a sign at the beginning of the park! There are a ton of improvements coming, so the signs can be overwhelming! Additionally, the lights are being changed for the Festival of Lights and Polar Express. We can't wait to have you back to check... More

Visited October 2014 from 5-8pm for Pumpkins Aglow. That was very cool. About 200 uniquely carved pumpkins were scattered throughout Dinoland (which on a side note is really neat as well with the animated life sized dinosaurs). Anyway, the pumpkins were all organized by theme (Disney characters, Boston sports teams, etc), some had accompanying music to accentuate the themes (like... More

We brought my daughter that's almost 4 and had a great time. Although they don't allow coolers, I do suggest to pack a lunch. There are picnic tables near the entrance that you can eat your own food. Their food was fine but it was pricy and a very long wait. All the rides were great. Even had a few... More

Thank you Letti! We are so happy you and your family had a wonderful time. Yes, you are correct we allow coolers but only at the front of the park, where our picnic tables are. Additionally, we are adding more restaurants as our customer base grows, to help with the long lines. Make sure to follow us on Facebook: EdavilleUSA... More

My husband and I had heard of pumkins a glow through a friend . We had our reservations as we had felt our 8yr old twins had outgrown this small but classic New England attraction.

I've been going to Edaville since I was born. But I have to say the past year has been the most fantastic. We love all the new energy that has come to the place. Dino Land is AMAZING beyond words.
