(9:08 am EST) -- Thomas Land, the largest permanent Thomas & Friends attraction in the country, will reopen for its third season at Edaville USA on April 8, 2017. Located in South Carver, Massachusetts, Edaville USA covers more than 11 acres and features 11 rides based on Thomas & Friends. A 20-minute-long scenic train ride on a full-sized Thomas the Tank Engine compliments roller coasters, a Ferris Wheel, drop tower and more.

Edaville USA is a family amusement center entertaining families for over 70 years that operates a number of attractions throughout the year, including the National Cranberry Festival and the Christmas Festival of Lights. Thomas Land's location at Edaville USA -- just over an hour from Boston -- is the first in the U.S. There are only two other locations in the world -- Japan and the U.K.
