CARVER (WBSM) — Edaville Family Theme Park is continuing to come up with new and unique train-related events for boys and girls of all ages.

Edaville recently announced events for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day to go along with its planned train event for Easter.

It’s part of the strategy to have events at the park throughout the year, even though the park is no longer open year-round.

As owner Jon Delli Priscoli is looking to build residential housing on part of the park property, the move has been made toward more specialized events outside the holiday “Festival of Lights” season.

The staff over at Edaville has instead been creating “train only” events that feature special train rides but with the park remaining closed.

Because the park itself is closed, attendees enter through the main Edaville gate and show their ticket and board the train off the platform at the front of the park.

Tickets are only sold in advance online; there will be no walk-up tickets sold on the day of the event.

On Saturday, May 11, Edaville is holding a “Mother’s Day Tea Limited” event. It will be at 11 a.m.

The one-hour train ride will feature “tea” (which will actually be sparkling apple juice served in a disposable teacup) along with mini raspberry beignets and mini cream puffs.

Father’s Day Root Beer Float Special at Edaville

On Saturday, June 15 at 11 a.m., dads get their special one-hour train ride complete with all the ingredients to make their own root beer floats. Each guest will receive a bottle of Dad’s Root Beer, a mini cup of Haagen-Dazs vanilla ice cream, and a red Solo cup.
