2013 Fall Season Opens August 31st with Day Out With Thomas

Edaville's new Dinoland attraction

The baby dinosaurs were the first to arrive.

Construction crews and staff at Edaville USA have been working overtime this summer on some new park features. The first to debut is a family ride called Flying Cranberry Crates which will be installed in time for Day Out With Thomas, starting Labor Day weekend. Soon after, an all-new animatronic dinosaur garden, Dinoland, will be unveiled in a newly developed part of the park most have never been in.

Many other changes big and small will be apparent to returning Edaville visitors when the park reopens August 31st. A redesigned park entrance and a new train platform and covered boarding area are underway. There is also a working pumpkin patch growing thousands of gourds for Edaville’s new family fun Halloween event, Pumpkins Aglow! The railway itself is also changing; part of the old route is being reclaimed for an upgraded Polar Express experience this Christmas season.

The Flying Cranberry Crates is an Edaville-themed, family ride currently being assembled on the banks of Edaville’s central lake. It consists of eight balloon-topped cranberry crates that are lifted up a tower and then spun around – providing some impressive, sprawling views of the park and cranberry bogs.

Also debuting this fall is Dinoland featuring 22 automated, museum-quality dinosaurs in a self-guided walk through a primordial forest. Aspiring paleontologists will dig for prehistoric bones and marvel at life-like dinosaurs as tall as 60 feet while parents will enjoy an enchanting stroll through one of Edaville’s most scenic areas.

There will be some surprises too when the park reopens August 31 for Day Out With Thomas, now in its twelfth year at Edaville. Tickets for this and all Edaville events are on sale now at or by calling 508-866-8190.
