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. « less

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. They have managed to combine nostalgia with modern technology and keep things fun and fresh. The concessions and souvenirs are... More

We brought our grandson who is almost 2 to the Thomas the Tank Engine event and he loved it. He ran all the way from the bumpy parking lot and couldn't wait to see "Thomee" as he calls it. He could go on many of the rides, but some he was too short to go on. The food was OK...the... More

So happy to hear you had a lovely time. We are under major construction with the addition of rides (Bumper Boats, Go-Kart track, Water Rides, etc) we will be geared towards a broader audience. Additionally, during our Holiday Festival our age range expands, as this event is a traditional family event for many. Some of the dinosaurs take longer to... More

Edaville is a train ride/ kiddie amusement part that has been a traditional destination for generations. Especially at Christmas when the park was known for its lighted displays. Over the past 10 years the park has fallen on hard times and gone through several owners. The most recent owners have been working hard to reverse the slide and it shows.... More

We went to Edaville Railroad in September especially to see the Dinoland exhibit, which I thought was very good. The kids loved it and were interested in the information about the Dinos. The rides were fun as well. The food needs work. We went to the Cafe, which we were told had the biggest selection and was the primary eating... More

Aside from it being pouring down rain, and redoing of some rides, it was a wonderful place .It is a lot different from how I remembered it from my childhood. At the time we went they had a .dinosaur exhibit that was outstanding. Plus, due to the weather, they gave us tickets for another time.

Our family had a wonderful time at Edaville Rail Road! Everything from rides to exhibits were amazing. The bathrooms were clean but outdated and indoor spaces had lack of AC. Everywhere we turned there were hard working staff with a smile. We truly enjoyed our time with our 2 year old. Thomas the Train was excellent. We had a wonderful... More

Edaville is a lot of fun for families with kids. They have added a number of kiddie rides and seem to be adding even more. Before I get into all the positives of Edaville, let me take a minute to explain why I did not give this attraction 5 stars. The reason I took off that last star is the... More

We are so happy you had fun!!! We apologize with regard to the food.

All I can say is wow! We drove down from Maine to see Thomas last weekend with our grand babies! The lark was exceptional! I'm not sure why there are complaints about food.

My almost 4-year old has a great time at Edaville! There's plenty to keep him entertained and the rides are just his speed. And he loves Thomas the Train.
