Tickets to the first Thomas Land theme park in North America are now on sale on the website of Edaville USA, a family amusement park and heritage railroad located in South Carver, Mass., where the attraction will be located.
The Thomas Land park will open Aug. 15, as part of Thomas the Tank Engine’s 70th anniversary celebrations this year, which has also seen new content, partnerships and activations around the globe.
The attraction will boast 11 rides based on "Thomas & Friends" and the Island of Sodor including a 20-minute long, scenic train ride on a life-sized Thomas the Tank Engine, a roller coaster, drop tower, Ferris wheel, soft-play area and more.
All of the rides and attractions will feature full-scale, working models of favorite characters such as Thomas, Diesel, Toby, Cranky the Crane, Harold the Helicopter, and others. Guestswill also be able to visit familiar destinations around the Island of Sodor like Tidmouth Sheds, Knapford Station and Brendam Docks. Sir Topham Hatt, controller of the railway on the Island of Sodor, will be on site to greet and take photos with guests.
Little engineers will be able to enjoy "Thomas & Friends" experiences at other venues throughout 2015, including:
Day Out with Thomas: The Celebration Tour 2015–an event that provides children of all ages the opportunity to climb aboard and take a ride with Thomas as well as participate in "Thomas & Friends" themed activities. The tour, now in its 20th year, will make stops in 42 U.S. cities and is expected to welcome nearly 1 million passengers throughout the year. At each stop, little engineers and their families are invited to take a 25-minute ride on their favorite engine, meet Sir Topham Hatt and enjoy a day of
Thomas & Friends
themed activities including arts and crafts, storytelling and more.
