Edaville Railroad in Carver, MA is opening this Christmas with two different programs for families. There is a twenty minute railroad ride with 12 amusement rides available to the public for $18 dollars for both kids and adults and $16 dollars for seniors.
AAA offers a $2 discount on the children and adult admission prices, but according to their website it is not available on Saturdays during the Christmas festival or on the Days Out With Thomas. There is nothing on the website regarding the Polar Express Train, but I suspect the same restrictions would also apply. Calling ahead would verify your discount options.
For military members there is a military discount available that provides free admission with a military ID to the ID holder and 50% discount to each family member. Carver residents are being offered a BOGO option. (Buy one get one free)
The dates for the Christmas Festival are:
Dec. 1-4, 7-11
Dec. 14-January 1
(Closed Christmas Day)
More information can be found on their website.
Edaville is also offering parents and children a Polar Express adventure. The dates for this special train trip are:
November 18,19, 20, 28, 29 & 30
December 5, 6, 12, 13, 24 & 31
The train times are currently listed as 4:30pm, 5:30pm, 6:30pm and 7:30pm
Prices are $30 for adults and children and it is suggested that you buy tickets early as they expect them to go quickly.
You can find out more about this option on their website here.
This was one of my favorite places to visit as a child and I am glad it is available for kids to see again. I am in the process of trying to get family interest generated to make a trip down this Christmas season.
