Jon Delli Priscoli purchased Edaville and it's 250 acres in 2002. There have been many exciting changes under his ownership including, including the reconfiguration of the entire rail course and the incorporation of vintage amusement rides such as an antique carousel and an illuminated Ferris Wheel. Other attractions throughout the year include, “Day Out With Thomas™” a family event centered around the Thomas the Tank Engine™ classic storybooks; the National Cranberry Festival, which features a train ride through the fall cranberry harvest; and the Christmas Festival of Lights offering rides through brilliantly lit displays in the winter.

I heard that Edaville had re-opened and had done some major renovations, so I decided to take my kids. I have 3, ages 5 and twins at 2. We arrived, mid morning to a long line to purchase tickets. Mistake one was not buying online. The cost is $29 for every person over the age of 2. There are some... More

Wait until it's complete.....who knows when that will be. The bad winter really set them back.....they opened 8/15, we visited 8/21. Many rides were not completed, one or two were complete but kept having mechanical problems. It's very nice and clean.....top notch....or will be when finished.

Thank you! We are happy you had fun! We have since fixed mechanical issues, however sometimes issues arise with rides, we have our maintenance team immediately and readily available to make sure everything is up and running asap. All rides are open except for Winston, which is noted on our website. More

This is not Disney World. It's a small theme park. with pretty basic rides, appropriate for younger children. The front half of the park has the Thomas the Train ride, a small wooden play area, an indoor play area and basic carnival rides (ferris wheel, flying elephants, rocket ships, scrambler, to name a few). My 4-year-old enjoyed most of the... More

I was very excited to take my three year old to Thomasland stalking Edaville's Facebook page and watching the progress being made since the Winter. I was a bit apprehensive to go the week after it opened, however, we made the trek from Connecticut and went to Edaville/Thomasland on Wednesday, 8/26. Let me start by saying that the opening of...

We went to Ediville today,Im glad it was only a 40 minute drive for us,otherwise I don't know if it would be worth it. First off,the older male at the gate..he is beyond rude,there's so much confusion at ticketing,get your tickets then have them scanned? Why not just do that in the booth after the tickets are purchased? anyway,it being... More

Hi! Thank you for your review! We have to scan the tickets at the gate to verify you are actually entering the park with the tickets, they are all time-stamped. We will definitely have the ticket sellers notify customers that they need to keep their tickets out. Our operations manager has been notified about the front gate staff as well.... More

We drove a distance for Thomasland and made a weekend of it. Edaville seems to be trying to get this park up and running but it needs much work. The lines to get in were long and made no sense. One line and then you immediately hand the ticket over to someone so they can scan it. They need more... More

Unique place where the little guys get to ride everything. My 4 and 5 yo loved it. Even the 1 year old got to ride some things. Dino land was a nice place to cool off.

The Thomas Land attractions are under construction - some rides are open but there was construction all around us on our visit. The fares ($29) are per person - children under 2 are free which is fine because they would not be allowed on any of the rides. Inconsistent information at gate and then at park sites for what age/size... More

Hello, We are sad to hear you did not enjoy our park. All ride height requirements can be found on our website. We do have rides for the smaller children in our museum and throughout our park. Most rides will require an adult to ride if the child is too small. Our pricing comes out to under $1 per ride,... More
