8/20/15: Thomas Land Open at Edaville USA, First in the US!

I have been talking about Thomas Land at Edaville USA for a while now and giving you sneak peeks.  Well now it is a reality!  We were lucky enough to attend the Grand Opening of Thomas Land in Edaville USA Carver, MA.  It was a star studded event including the Owner of Edaville USA, Executives from Mattel and even actress Tamara, host of The Real and from the show Sister, Sister!
 The day started with a Welcome and then the kids got to film a short commercial with the Thomas and Friends General Manager from Mattel.  Here they are all yelling with excitement that Thomas Land is officially open!
Edaville USA has gone through quite a transformation in the last couple years.  The creation of the Island of Sodor with Thomas Land is amazing and a wonderful addition to the park.  Plus it is the only Thomas Land in the United States!  Here is the owner of Edaville USA speaking with Sir Topham Hatt in the background looking on.  Of course Sir Topham Hatt has to make sure that everything is running without confusion and delay.
 Here is the ribbon cutting and the official opening.  We are the first to get to enter Thomas Land!
Here is some video of all the excitement.

 Here is the lovely entrance.  It is just past Dino Land and some rides.
 It is just gorgeous!
 Here you can see the rides.  They are so much fun.
 There is a Troublesome Trucks runaway roller coaster that we loved.  It goes around the tracks twice.
Another favorite was Cranky's Crane Drop.  This randomly drops you several times and is a lot of fun.
There is Rockin' Bulstrode Tug Boat which rocks back and forth.
There is Sodor's Cranberry Carousel.
And even Harold's Lift Off.  You can see all the rides here.
There is more to come as this ride, Winston's Skyline Express was not open yet.
An awesome spot to visit is Tidmouth Sheds.  There was a little show there and the Trains talk!
Sir Topham Hatt was there too!
 Kids get to take pictures with their favorites.
 Visiting with Emily.
 You can even climb in to Percy.
 And of course Thomas chugs by to make sure everything is in order.  You can take a trip around the park with him at intervals during the day.
He seems pretty pleased with the way his Land has turned out.
 Here is Evan as we were on the train.  He loves trains.
In fact check him out from one of his first visits to Day Out With Thomas.
Now there is so much to do and see!
 You definitely need to check out Thomas Land!
And of course while you are there make sure to ride all the rides, enjoy Dino Land and ride the train.
Tickets can be purchased online by visiting or at the park entrance.

Disclosure:  I was invited by Mattel to attend the Media Grand Opening of Thomas Land at Edaville USA.  No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own.
