I was not compensated for this post, but my family and I were given complimentary passes to attend the theme park. All opinions are 100% my own.
There are so many things to love about the holiday season, but a big reason I love it so much is because of family traditions.
Edaville Family Theme Park could be quite possibly New England’s most memorable holiday tradition. It’s a beautifully kept theme park that goes all out for the holiday season.
Their Festival of Lights train ride started back in the late 1940’s and remains a very popular attraction for the theme park.
We had a fantastic time visiting Edaville’s Festival of Lights this month and I wanted to share 5 reasons why I know you will love it, too.
1. Rides, rides and more rides. Besides experiencing MILLIONS of lights, you and your family can enjoy unlimited train rides and unlimited use of all 90 plus rides and attractions (indoor and outdoor!)
2. Go back in time while strolling through Dickens Village. Dickens Village is an awesome place for family photo-ops. We took our Christmas card photo here and it looks like we visited some European village. While walking through this impressive area, you can shop for old-fashioned candy, hand crafted ornaments, children’s toys, handmade chocolate, children’s books, and more!
3. You may get to ride on Thomas the train for the Festival of Lights tour. An employee told me there are two trains that run for Festival of Lights. One is Thomas and the other is a festive “choo choo” train. Both are fun, except your kids may beg for Thomas if they are a fan of his!
4. Thomas Land is open in the winter, too! Besides the awesome Thomas-themed rides, your kids can also play in an indoor play area. Thomas Land offers rides from little kids to bigger kids and adults. My children went on their first roller coaster here and always beg to get on multiple times. There’s also endless amounts of photo opportunities here, too.
5. There’s plenty of places to eat or have a snack! We did pack snacks for the hour drive there, however, it was a bit cold that day so we did want to take a break for some hot cocoa. Besides snacks like pretzels, nachos, fruit and yogurt, there’s a place you can have a meal right next to where you get on the train. We had a quick bite after the 20-minute train ride and then headed home. All fell asleep the whole way back, so I’d say it was a good night!
