"Not ADA friendly"

Edaville Railroad would not ask a non-disabled person to switch to one of their two completely empty cars on the train so my son in a wheelchair could ride their train. So, I was contacted today by the owner of that wonderful park.... She will not refund me my money and told me that their policy is to not make someone that is not handicap move from the only handicap accessible car to accommodate a handicap person. Interesting. They prefer to deny the handicap person from riding their train when it is not full than upset a non-disabled person.

"Edaville Railroad, So. Carver Mass"

My family and I loved  Edavaille...we had so many wonderful Sundays there on our treks over to see the bogs of cranberries and ride the trains.  Some years we went at Christmas with many lights.  It was always a magical show with the special effects of the added snow and quietness and lights.   An experience  I never wish to forget to my last passing breath.   Thank you Dad and Mom for taking us there.  We used to trek there from near Abington and Holbrook, Braintree areas on the south shore.  Please if you are a train admirer, please add me.  Rex L Harrisen, Facebook

"Many trips to Edaville"

Grew up in the area and have been for Day out with Thomas, Bluegrass festivals, Cranberry festival, Holiday lights, Car shows and just a summer day out. Many years and many traditions. Yes, it is a little pricey- but you can usually find coupons. During the summer there are a few "carnival-type" rides. If it has been awhile since you have been, you will be pleased to see (as was I) that there have been many necessary renovations over the years. It will forever be a destination for my family.

I gave this only three stars because of the cost.  It is a lot of fun for the kids--amusements, rides, the trains, but isn't cheap.  We went to see Thomas when our son was litle and it was very exciting for him.  Definitely lots to do for a wide range of ages.

"Watch for Day out with Thomas"

We went to Edaville when they were doing the "Day out with Thomas".  It was an amazing experience for my children.  The place was very clean, and the workers were so nice.  I was informed that it is a great place to go on a normal day as well, but  being able to ride the "real" Thomas the train made the trip worth it for my crew!!

"Fun with the Family"

Ellis D. Atwood, whose initials E.D.A. gave birth to the name Edaville, built the railroad to run 5 miles into cranberry country to serve his cranberry business in the 1940s.
A regional landmark from the 1950s through the 1990s, Edaville has been revived as a vacation destination for families (my own parents have pictures of my brother and me standing in a caboose at Edaville back in the 1960s!).
Don’t miss the 2-mile narrow-gauge railroad ride (it takes half an hour) through the cranberry bog, lakes, and countryside. Today there is a family amusement park with trains, rides, a carousel, a museum, and Cranberry World, located in the Cran Central Junction Building sponsored by Ocean Spray.
Hungry? There are plenty of venues to fill up at; try the Freight House Cafe, Choo-Choo, barbecue picnic area, or one of the many snack bars.
