Stanley Park Ghost Train for Halloween 2010

Comments 176 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Stanley Park miniature railway is hosting its annual Ghost Train and this year’s theme is Alice in Nightmareland. Last night we had a sneak peak at the train ride, haunted farmyard, ghoulish concession and monstrous face painting hi-jinx.

Mortal Coil Performance Society is responsible for the fantastic artwork, scenes, and actors that are out along the Alice in Nightmareland train route. The soundtrack to the ride varies from contemporary fantasy tunes to sounds from Alice in Wonderland, making for a creepy psychedelic ride.

Characters act out scenes, playing cards come to life, objects twirl and spin while the endless clickety-clack of the train on the tracks echoes through the dark forest. The route doesn’t have jack-o-lanterns, Dracula, or skeletons but I think they’ve achieved a whole new level of spooky this year with this trippy attraction.

Aside from the train, there will be nightly activities on the grounds this season that include:

  • Pumpkin carving on Monday October 11th and Monday October 18th
  • A celebration for the new film “Megamind” on Monday October 25th
  • Costume night on Tuesday October 26th

The Ghost Train is open nightly from 6:00pm to 10:00pm until October 31st and the haunted farmyard is accessible from 5:00pm to 9:00pm. The Stanley Park Ecology Society is also leading “Creature of the Night” theatrical walks on the hour, Tuesday through Saturdays from 5:00pm until 8:00pm.

All attractions are open rain or shine and parking is free after 5:00pm in the lot adjacent to the train plaza entrance. Tickets do sell out so you can pick yours up ahead of time via Ticketmaster.

  7. taradenFriday, October 8th, 2010 — 11:56am PDT

    Sounds and looks like a great time! Halloween is my absolute favorite time of year.

  8. Kyong SukFriday, October 8th, 2010 — 12:08pm PDT

    I think I will get dressed for it – I can use my Zombie costume from the upcoming Vancouver Zombie walk.

  9. CameronFriday, October 8th, 2010 — 12:20pm PDT

    Another good Halloween event is the PNE Fright Nights October 15-31, but I think this train looks more suitable for small(er) children.

  10. VeronicaFriday, October 8th, 2010 — 12:27pm PDT

    My kids go crazy for Halloween… they had their costumes picked out right after school started!

    But really, the kids are my favourite part of Halloween.

    I just wish there were more kids going door to door in my neighbourhood. Seeing all the different costumes is a definite highlight.

  11. HollyFriday, October 8th, 2010 — 12:50pm PDT

    Halloween is my favorite “holiday”!! This would be a wonderful adventure.

  31. JessicaFriday, October 8th, 2010 — 4:05pm PDT

    I remember celebrating New Year’s at the Christmas train ride in Stanley Park a few years ago. It was so great. So nice to be entirely away from the madness downtown. Yeesh!

  32. LBFriday, October 8th, 2010 — 4:25pm PDT

    I’ve wondered about the ghost train for a few years now…. is it mainly for kids or adults or does everyone go?

  33. JLFriday, October 8th, 2010 — 4:39pm PDT

    I went on the ghost train a few years back and it was entertaining. It’s a family-friendly activity yet I think young adults will enjoy the one-of-a-kind train ride as well.

  34. Michael KwanFriday, October 8th, 2010 — 4:39pm PDT

    Even though I’ve lived my whole life here, I’ve never been on the Stanley Park ghost train. It’s about time I go one of these days.

  35. HayleyFriday, October 8th, 2010 — 5:07pm PDT

    This looks so nifty, I’m hoping to get a group a of friends to come out and try it with me ^_^

  36. ChistaFriday, October 8th, 2010 — 5:21pm PDT

    The Alice in Wonderland theme will be awesome to see!

  37. ColinFriday, October 8th, 2010 — 5:44pm PDT

    I’d love to check out the haunted train but is it too tacky to bring my roommates who aren’t as young at heart as myself?

  38. tracyFriday, October 8th, 2010 — 6:10pm PDT

  39. KevinFriday, October 8th, 2010 — 7:18pm PDT

    I remember volunteering in high school for both this and the Christmas one… standing outside taking tickets in the cold….. but the displays were always great and we got treated to pizza and hot chocolate. πŸ™‚

  131. kathThursday, October 14th, 2010 — 11:07pm PDT

    Still not sure I understand all the hoopla North Americans attribute to Halloween but the Ghost Train looks like a LOT of fun so perhaps this will help get me in the spirit of the season πŸ™‚

  162. IvyMonday, October 18th, 2010 — 4:19pm PDT

    Halloween is my favourite time of the year because i get to be anyone i want. I can act silly, look silly, be scary and do anything and no one questions it because it’s halloween! I would love to go on the ghost train because i’ve never been also! Thanks!

  165. ChristineMonday, October 18th, 2010 — 5:48pm PDT

    We love the train, never miss it! It will be sad to see the farmyard close after this year though.

  166. Sarah MartinMonday, October 18th, 2010 — 5:55pm PDT

    My family with two children have made it a tradition of seeing the most spectacular event that Stanley Park has to offer! πŸ™‚

  173. SarannaTuesday, October 19th, 2010 — 9:34am PDT

    My favourite memories of Hallowe’en was the chance to dress up and go out with my brother collecting candy. Candy was a novelty in my house so between Hallowe’en and Easter there are some pretty good memories!

    I would love to relive my inner child and win this prize!

  174. KimWednesday, October 20th, 2010 — 12:05pm PDT

    I love dressing up for Halloween! I am new to Vancouver so I have never been on the train, but would love to!
