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. I was sad to see that DinoLand is closed for the season (makes sense since robotics & snow don't mix!) but the rest of the park was hopping! Polar Express is... More

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. The... More

Hello! We hope you had a fantastic holiday! The hot chocolate has to be lukewarm for safety reasons. I am shocked to hear you did not receive cookies, this is the first I am hearing of no cookies received. Please e-mail us at Edavilleusa1@gmail.com Thank you for your positive review as well. We do offer a $20 ticket that does... More

Enjoyed a visit last evening and boy has this place changed. More rides for the kids and beautiful Christmas lights. Indoor area is a great break from the chill. 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

Went to Edaville on a Thursday night to ride the Polar Express and what a great night it turned out to be.

Edaville is really moving up. All the lights were awesome, more rides every year. More rides planned for the coming years. Love the kiddie ride inside, just in case the weather is too cold for the real little ones. Fun time and I look forward to spring.
