The woods are dark at night, and with the wind howling and bats fluttering overhead, you’ll want to hold loved ones close — especially once Dracula, the Phantom of the Opera, and Frankenstein make an appearance. This year’s Stanley Park Ghost Train will haunt and delight with its Classic Horror theme from October 9th to November 1st.
Stanley Park Halloween Ghost Train
Each year, the Stanley Park Halloween Ghost Train takes riders on a journey through a mystical and magical world. The classic night train ride includes a 14-minute experience with lights, sounds, and live performers.
Back from the graveyards of yesteryear, this year’s Classic Horror theme comes the most gripping, exciting, and spine-tingling creatures ever to haunt the Stanley Park Train. Witness Dracula, Frankenstein, the Phantom of the Opera, and more, as they come back to life from behind the silver screen to haunt you, chill you, and thrill you. This weird and wild adventure will take you back to a time when moving pictures dared to unearth the shadows that lay sleeping in the dark recesses of our minds.
The Ghost Train is open October 9, 2015 to November 1, 2015. It will be closed October 12th for Thanksgiving Day.
