Thomas the Tank Engine Theme Park to Open

See recent posts by Amanda Geronikos

Thomas the Tank Engine has been chugging through America and Canada for the past 19 years, but in 2015, he will also receive a permanent home: a theme park at Edaville Railroad USA in Carver, Mass. Thomas Land will be the first in the U.S.; currently, Thomas Land is also located in the United Kingdom and Japan.

The park, which will encompass 250 acres, will have 14 rides, including a roller coaster, Ferris wheel and drop tower. It will also feature a 20-minute train ride and chance to meet Sir Topham Hat, similar to the experience currently offered in A Day Out with Thomas.

Groundbreaking begins in July, 2014, and Thomas Land is expected to open by next summer.
