Chances are. . .

if you grew up on the South Shore you went to Edaville Railroad as a kid and maybe your parents even went as kids. When you think if Edaville you probably get a little nostalgic remembering riding the train during the Christmas season, looking at the lights they had strung up along the 250 acre property. Today, Edaville has a lot more going on.  Not only do they continue to have the Christmas Festival of Lights but they now have many new attractions.  There is Thomas Land, for your little train lover, Dino Land for those that love dinosaurs,  and there are different themes almost every weekend. With over 90 rides and attractions its a great place to spend the day.

Located in Carver, MA it is a small, locally owned, family theme park that is perfect for younger kids and the young at heart.  I thought maybe my kids were outgrowing Edaville but when I asked them the other day if they would want to go back there wasn’t a second of hesitation when they both said yes.  I got an email the other day saying that there was a BOGO promotion going on where you can buy one anyday ticket and get one free so I went ahead and bought them.   As you can tell from my previous posts, I’m not a big fan of paying full price!  The park will be open from April-January and I’m sure we will find a day that we can go. The theme park has a great website www.edaville.com where you can get all the information you need, but the BOGO deal is only running until 3/31 so if you are thinking of gong this year buy tickets now!

Maybe we’ll try something new and go for the “Pumpkins Aglow” event in October, or maybe we’ll stick with our tradition of going for the Christmas lights. Comment below if you have been to any of the the other Edaville events or plan on going. I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Little local places are my favorite.

  1. I love Edaville! We first went to “A Day Out with Thomas” before Thomas land was built; we then went when Dinoland was built and Henry loved it and now with Thomas land there are rides for kids of all ages so it is perfect. It is so clean and I also like that they let you bring food in, so that you can save money and keep kids occupied with snacks!

  2. I went once as a kid and the river next to the rail smelled like sewerage. The entire ride. It was horrible.

    After hearing from many others I believe I went during a really bad year before they started rebuilding it’s glory.
