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.

We all went here to ride in the winter to see the Christmas lights and santas village. Now it is food and rides and has festivals and booths that sell homemade goods quite a few times in the fall. It is expensive for sure, but riding the old locomotive is worth it as no one does that anymore . dress... More

My family and I took my niece and nephew for a day out with Thomas the Train. My niece was concerned that Thomas was real but the staff was very kind to her and gave her lots of hugs and reassured her that nothing would happen on their watch. My nephew was on cloud 9. Next time we go, we... More

I may be alittle biased here as I love trains! this is a quaint little park with some amusement rides for kids and of course a 5 or so mile ride through and around cranberry bogs on a narrow gauge train. For me the best time to visit has always been the holiday times when the place is decorated from... More

We went here with my boyfriend's parents after making a trip to the area for a cranberry festival in Wareham. Since we'd driven by a few times over the past several months and talked about going to Edaville, we figured we'd stop in and check it out and we were really glad we did! It turned out to be way...

My wife and I decided to go to Edaville railroad just before Christmas. Both of us hadn't been there since we were kids and wanted to see the display of lights they have every year. The parking lot was packed with cars and, altho there were lots of people and kids, it didn't seem crowded which I liked. The walk... More

Visited this place today. Not worth 20$ at all and not worth driving down for more than an hour. Will never visit this place again. The rides were v less, the lights along the train rides were not great. Not worth the trouble in this cold with the little ones.

Sorry to hear you are disappointed. I would like to speak with you further. Please note that the $20 price includes, free parking, unlimited use of all amusement rides and unlimited train rides on the Festival of Lights train. We have over 7 million lights as well during the holidays. I will keep an eye out for your email. EdavilleUSA1@gmail.com. More

We are frequent Edaville visitors (Thomas in the summer, Pumpkins Aglow, and Festival of Lights) and returned for Polar Express last night for the second year in a row.

We visited Edaville last week to take our nephew on the Polar Express and I have to say our party was very disappointed. Tickets were $38 each for passengers over two, which I feel is very over priced. At least bump the child rate down. The website mentioned we would get hot chocolate and cookies on the train ride.

Can't wait for the new Thomas Land and for the Dino display to reopen in Tue spring. Only complaint...$22 for two hotdogs, a chili, a burger, and a soda! Way too... More
