Halloween Ghost Train in Stanley Park

Every year October a few weeks before Halloween, the Stanley Park miniature train operates with a Halloween Ghost theme!  As you take the 14 minute train ride, there are many scary scenes for the theme alongside the ride to scare and thrill you!  There are actually live actors who perform alongside the train (night train only).

In addition to the miniature train rides, there is a haunted maze, haunted barn, and other activities.

You need to purchase tickets to go on the train ride.  Tickets are sold online and on-site.  It gets very busy right closer to Halloween night and many of the core times sell out!  Tickets are sold for half-hour time slots which guarantee you will get on the train around the END time of the slot.  You should line up for the START time(or earlier) of your time slot.

Note: This train ride is probably not for the really little children, but the older children and adults will love it!  Guys...it makes a great date!  When your date gets scared she will hang onto you!

Remember to dress appropriately.  You may have to wait in a queue outside for your boarding time.  It may be rainy, cold, and/or windy outside.  The train has a roof, but you may still get a bit wet and cold so be prepared!
