About
Edaville Family Theme Park has three worlds in one! Thomas Land, CranCentral, and Dino Land (Seasonal). Also known for hosting the amazing and historical Christmas Festival of Lights (Seasonal).Jon Delli Priscoli purchased Edaville and it's 250 acres in 2002. There have been many exciting changes under his ownership including, the reconfiguration of the entire rail course and the opening of the only Thomas Land in the United States. Additionally, Edaville Family Theme Park opened Dino Land a prehistoric learning adventure filled with life sized animatronic dinosaurs! Throughout the year you can find your favorite characters visiting the park for meet and greets! As October arrives Edaville Family Theme Park stays open late during not its so spooky Halloween celebration focusing on creating a fun and safe trick or treating environment for all children to enjoy . And of course during the holiday season Edaville opens for its world renowned Christmas Festival of Lights that has now grown to display over 7 million lights! Admission at Edaville includes access to all three parks, free parking and a lifetime for family memories.

Edaville remains a classic New England narrow gauge railroad & family themed amusement park among the cranberry bogs in the roads to Cape Cod. We were there during the 75th Anniversary Weekend, when the train loop and some of the displays were just opened. The 1/2 hour train ride is a must of railroad buffs. Kids will like all the amusement park rides. The best time to visit may be during the holidays, when an elaborate Christmas Village is set up.

We try to get to Edaville every Christmas for family fun.
The only down side was they were short on staff ( because of Covid) half the rides were closed, not their fault)

I didn't realize this place was still open. I enjoyed going here every year as a kid, with my kidsnow with my granddaughter. The highlight is the train ride. plenty of lights. Plenty of fun rides for the children.

Get ready to wait in long lines, drink lukewarm hot chocolate, and experience only half the park.

With only a few rides open due to Thomas Land being closed and three other rides broken, the lines were a good 30-40 minutes for each ride. Many of the workers that were there were rude to the kids especially the guy running the scrambler.

Even the train ride had its downfalls. The indoor train cars were Covid superspreaders with most people maskless sitting on top of each other as they stuffed them in there. We decided to sit in the cold outdoor cabins to get away from the piles of people. There were many decorations that were either broken or had fallen down on the ground.

We will not be going back to Edaville any time soon.

We took a 15, 13 and 10 yr old here and realized after 5 minutes that half the park was closed because they couldn't staff it, 2 rides had parts on back order and the ferris wheel broke down while we were in line. We told the manager and she said the other rides were available but the rest were toddler rides so we just basically rode the train (we stayed because we met family there) and then left. Not worth it for the money. Definitely for very young children.

Warning: do not pre-purchase tickets. You will only get to switch to Thursdays or the 4 days of Christmas break. Even if you want to pay more for a day, nope! And if you expect to be called back, nope! And if you ask for the 18th, they will lie to you and say it’s “sold out”!

Visited Edaville for the Christmas lights, train ride, and some rides. It was great to be back again. I give those that run this place so much credit for what they do. Rides are limited due to staffing issues, as those we see all over the country. Parts are delayed for broken rides due to shipping issues. But Edaville is plugging along and doing the best they can. This was still a great experience for us and our granddaughter (our 3rd time here in her 8 years). Went on some rides with limited wait time, played in the arcade, rode that great train. The Christmas songs and lights just made us feel happy.

We took our son twice in 2019. Of course we couldn't go in 2020 because they were closed with COVID. He is obsessed with Thomas and asks to go almost every day. We want to take him this year but unfortunately we have no idea if they are even going to reopen. Its really sad because the summer is passing by and we would love to go again. We miss it.

Edaville Theme Park has been there for a long time. It kind of went down the drain about 20 years ago, you know, old, not clean, the same old rides etc. However, it is now a first class theme park with train rides, museums, Old English Village, dinosaur park, good restaurant and much more. A great place to spend a summer day with your under 10 years or age kids. Try it you will be pleased.

This has been around since forever, in the last few years it has redesigned itself and is enjoying a lot of popularity. It is centered around a train ride through cranberry bog country on a narrow gauge train that originally came from Maine. It can get pretty crowded especially in the hot summer. Prices to get in are fairly nominal, food prices a bit high. But the park and rides are really nice, there is also a museum, a dinosaur forest, an olde English town and lots more. We took our 5 year old grand daughter there and she and us had a great time. A great place to spend a day with kids.
