CARVER, Massachusetts — The nation's first Thomas the Tank Engine-themed amusement park is opening in Massachusetts this weekend.

Thomas Land is scheduled to open to the public Saturday on 11 acres of the Edaville USA Railroad in Carver.

It features 11 rides based on the popular television show, including a 20-minute train ride on Thomas himself; a spin on Harold the Helicopter; and a Cranky Crane tower drop.

The United Kingdom and Japan have Thomas Lands, and they draw millions of visitors per year. The U.S. version is the largest.

The park has been under construction for a year.

Edaville USA is an active 250-acre cranberry farm long famous in the region for its annual Cranberry Festival and Christmastime Festival of Lights.
