This year’s Stanley Park Halloween Ghost Train theme is the Jack O’ Lantern’s journey through the Dark Forest. You’re invited to join Jack on his journey as his lantern casts a light on floating druids, a 12-foot monster, and creatures barely human.

You must buy a ticket to ride the train. Your ticket is valid for one Ghost Train ride and other attractions in the plaza.
Several trains depart during each half-hour time slot. Line up at the start of your time slot for shorter waits. For example, if your time slot is 7:00pm to 7:30pm, arrive at 7:00pm and join the line for your time slot. You’ll board a train by 7:30pm.
BOO BOGO! Purchase a ticket for a time slot between 5:30pm to 9:30pm on October 15, 16, 22 or 23, and show it to train staff onsite. A second train ride of equal or lesser value will be provided, free of charge.
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.
The Ghost Train has on-site and overflow parking lots. All parking is free.
