Recently, the boys and I headed over to Edaville USA in Carver, MA for the Grand Opening of the newest addition to the park, Dinoland!  In case you’ve never been, Edaville USA is a family fun amusement park located in South Carver, MA.  In addition to Dinoland, the park features train rides through picturesque cranberry bogs, vintage amusement rides, indoor and outdoor play spaces, and some newly acquired modern rides.

I grew up going to Edaville and was super excited that I was invited to attend the VIP grand opening of Dinoland!

Dinoland offers children and adults a chance to travel through the wooded footpath and witness over 20 life-sized dinosaurs moving and roaring in an outdoor environment.

As soon as we walked into Dinoland, one of my sons said to me that it was like walking into Jurassic Park.  I was so proud of the awesome early 90’s movie reference.

My oldest loved learning about the dinosaurs as we went along the path and basically ended up acting as our tour guide, which was so cute.  I love that our time in Dinoland was fun and educational.


Dinoland will be open until October on all days the park is open. Dinoland is included in general park admission, so guests will be able to visit Dinoland and also enjoy unlimited use of all park amusements. General admission will be $20, with free entrance to guests under the age of 2, and $17 for seniors. Tickets can be purchased online by visiting www.edaville.com or at the park entrance.

Edaville USA is located at 5 Pine St in CarverMA.

**My family received complimentary admission to Edaville in order to experience Dinoland for ourselves.  All opinions expressed here are strictly my own and were not influenced in any way**
