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 can see what they are trying to do. The train ride was cool, the grounds very clean. The few other rides, carnival transplants, were OK, but not enough of them. Lots of construction though. WIll check back in a few years.

I have been to Edaville Railroad since I was a kid. I lived in Carver for 12 years and Edaville Railroad is a must see. Especially at Christmas time. It is kind of pricey. Kids of all ages will enjoy Edaville Railroad. So much to do and see. The owner of Edaville Railroad takes very good care of this place.

Cost was really good as it included all rides... More

My boyfriend and I took our 2 year old here for A Day Out with Thomas on Father's Day. Edaville is a dream for any little kid!! This place is great because it is all about the little ones. So many rides for them and great activities like fishing, story time, tattoos, and they can meet sir topham hat!!! Not... More

We took my 2 1/2 year old son for Thomas' Day Out and had a fantastic time. It's hard to find something that's the right pace for little kids (with their short attention spans) that's worth the price and this definitely was. He LOVED riding on the train (and seeing the dinosaurs in the new land they are opening). The... More

Took our two grandchildren (boys) ages 7 and 5 for Super Heroes & Princesses Day. Total entrance fee was $70 (senior citizen & AAA). We felt this was reasonable compared with other similar attractions. Right away you can see they are expanding. Lots of land has been cleared and new rides, including a water ride and wooden roller coaster are... More

We are so happy you had a wonderful time! We have addressed the dinosaurs that were not working, we are still working through some "kinks." I have informed our operations manager about the non-smiling employee. We want all employees to be happy and cheery! More

Went for the first time with my husband and our 22-month old son on June (Thomas Day Out) and again on July (Red, White and Blue/Dinoland). Both times we were able to get discounts. But we would have paid the full price as we thought it was worth it. Unlimited rides, free parking, you can bring your own food/water. We... More

We went for Thomas, and that was the most lackluster part of the trip. All aboard a train with nothing that says Thomas, except for the engine which you have to wait in line to take a photo with. The ride itself was a tour through construction. Granted they said "under construction" at the entrance... but I live 55min from... More

Yes, currently we are under major construction with the introduction of our DINOLAND, coming this summer and Thomasland, coming in 2015. We do inform our customers that we are under construction. Did you get to enjoy any of our 16 rides within the park that are included in your ticket? I hope you had a chance to check out our... More
