We had the pleasure of visiting Thomas Land at Edaville Family Theme Park again this week. As a family with a train-loving little boy, this location is a huge favorite. We have been visiting for years but the new “sensory-friendly” additions along with the new splash pad have made a great park even better!
We spent most of our day in Thomas Land. This portion of the park is the home to all the favorite character from the classic TV show. We started with a ride on Winston, high above the park, checking out all the other rides. Then we checked out the show, staring Sir Topham Hat, Percy, James, Emily, and Gordon. Then the boys enjoyed riding on Flynn, Bullstroke, and Harold before we stopped for lunch at the Dockside Diner. We then finished up Thomasland with riding the Diesels, Bertie, and Toby.
It was above 90 degrees when we visited and PJ was having a bit of a sensory overload from all the sounds mixed with the heat. We were happy to find an area for him to decompress right outside of Thomas Land. With lowered lights, air conditioning, puzzles, and blocks it was a great getaway for him to regroup. We then went on the 20-min Thomas train ride through the Cranberry bogs. Again, we were happy to find a sensory-friendly train car, with lowered music.
After the wonderful train ride, we decided it was time to check out the new splash pad. The boys LOVED the water features and the adults loved the layout with beach sand, Adirondack chairs and a small food cart with fresh watermelon.
Edaville is always one of our favorite spots. You can check out my past post about our last trip in which we spent more time in the Cran Central and Dinoland areas. I highly suggest readers make a trip there is at all possible. It is located in beautiful little Carver, Massachusetts, near historic Plymouth & Cape Cod. Open from April through December tickets can be purchased at www.edaville.com
