Stanley Park Halloween Ghost Train 2017

Comments 1 by Rebecca Bollwitt

This year’s Stanley Park Ghost Train theme is the Alien Invasion. Be prepared to be abducted to an unearthly, fantastical, and strange world. Journey into the restricted zones and witness the landing.

Stanley Park Halloween Ghost Train

Explore the haunted maze, do arts and crafts, visit with the Stanley Park Ecology Society and browse the pumpkin patch.

Opening Hours
The Ghost Train is open October 13 to 31, 2017.

Live theatrical performance train
Enjoy a 14 minute experience exploring the Alien Invasion theme with lights, sounds, and live performers.

  • Monday to Thursday, 5:30pm to 9:30pm
  • Friday to Sunday, 5:30pm to 10:00pm

Matinee train
A great daytime activity for families, school groups, and groups with children. Journey through the forest and view the thematic displays.

  • Friday to Sunday, 11:00am to 5:00pm (last train at 5:00pm). Note, there are no live performers during matinee train rides.

Parental discretion is advised for children under six.


You must buy a ticket to ride the train. Your ticket is valid for one Ghost Train ride and other attractions in the plaza.

Book online in advance to save time and to avoid sold out rides.
Avoid the crowds and come out Monday to Thursday in the first two weeks.

Tickets are only good for the date and time shown on the ticket, and are non-refundable. A portion of tickets for each night are reserved for on-site purchase, so even if online tickets are sold out for that day, tickets are still available at the ticket booth. On-site ticket sales start at 3:00pm, Monday to Thursday, and 11:00am, Friday to Sunday. You can buy same-day tickets only. Matinee ticket sales cut off at 5:00pm, Friday to Sunday.

Food on Site

Enjoy some comfort food from Old Country Pierogi or a hot beverage from Insomniac’s Coffee, or try dayglo cotton candy and the out-of-this-world Galaxy candy apples from A Sweet Mind. Crop Circle Café and Canteen will be selling light meals and snacks, and the Cob House by Stanley Park Ecology Society will have delicious organic popcorn.

Charity Partner

When you visit Ghost Train, please give generously to this year’s partner charity, the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. You can bring non-perishable food items for the food bank.

Creatures of the Night

While at the Stanley Park Ghost Train, join one of Stanley Park Ecology Society’s free Creatures of the Night tours.
