Though the weather is currently reflecting late July temperatures, autumn is just around the corner and with it comes all the fun and excitement (and fright) of Halloween. This year the Stanley Park Ghost Train‘s theme, running October 11th until November 2nd, is “Monster Movie Mashup“:


Stanley Park Ghost Train

Mortal Coil Performance Society has created another great production for this year’s premium Halloween event in Vancouver. The Monster Movie Mashup is alive with visual and imaginative theatre for audiences young and old. The costumes are amazing, and their is a sense of magic with this year’s classic horror movie theme from 1930 movie scenes.

The Stanley Park Ghost Train will run nightly seven days a week from October 11th until November 2nd, from 6:00pm to 10:00pm. There will also be matinees on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 11:00am until 6:00pm. The train will be closed for Thanksgiving Monday, October 14th.

You can purchase your tickets in advance now through Ticketmaster online or by calling 1-855-985-5000 to plan ahead. Tickets will also be sold on-site at the train station ticket window at 3:00pm every day with matinee sales from 11:00am to 3:00pm, day of.

As they say, you know you grew up as a true Vancouverite if your Halloween costumes were made to fit under a garbage bag poncho. But fear not — the rain, at least! We’ll probably have more fantastic weather leading into October but the Stanley Park Ghost Train is covered anyway. Hot and cold drinks are available at the Railway Cafe along with hot buttered popcorn from the Stanley Park Ecology Society’s Cob House in the plaza. It’s the perfect fall activity, rain or shine, for you and the kids.
