Today the Monsters and I got a chance to be part of a pretty big event: the ribbon cutting at Thomas Land at our favorite place, Edaville. Thomas Land is the first park of its kind in the United States and is poised to bring tremendous growth to Edaville. Thomas Land covers 11.5 acres and boasts 11 rides based on Thomas & Friends and the Island of Sodor. The rides and attractions feature beloved characters such as Thomas, Percy, Diesel, Toby, Cranky the Crane, and more!
We started the day off getting some Thomas swag including train whistles which did not stop whistling all day throughout the park. We got to play some games with some great Edaville staff before taking the first ever ride on Thomas!
After our ride, we headed over to the ribbon cutting ceremony with moving speeches from all those who worked so hard to bring Sodor to life in Carver and a special V.I.P. appearance from Tamara Mowry! The ribbon was cut, and the Monsters got to try out all the new rides. Some attractions are still under construction, but despite that, you can already tell what a triumph Thomas Land will be! The girls had a great time and I’m sure you will too!
The grand opening for the public is Saturday 8/15 and you can get all the information you need beforehand HERE. Check back tomorrow for a vlog showing our day at the park…..all aboard!
