Stanley Park Ghost Train: Win Tickets

Comments 91 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Alice falls down the rabbit hole again. Only this time, she is older and things aren’t what they seem. But then, what could she expect, wandering through a grand graveyard at night on Halloween? Join Alice in Nightmareland at the Stanley Park Ghost Train from October 11 to 31, 2019.

Stanley Park Ghost Train

Alice falls down the rabbit hole again. Only this time, she is older and things aren’t what they seem. But then, what could she expect, wandering through a grand graveyard at night on Halloween?

Follow Alice and the Not-So-White Rabbit through an endless series of stone doors and enter into a gothic nightmare world of tombs and tombstones, crypts, and catacombs!

Opening Hours
The Ghost Train is open October 11 to 31, 2019.

  • Monday to Thursday, 5:30pm to 9:30pm
  • Friday to Sunday, 5:30pm to 10:00pm
  • Closed Thanksgiving Day (October 14) in the evening

Note: Though Stanley Park Ghost Train is a family-friendly event, they suggest parental guidance for children. For a less scary experience, try the daily matinée train. This is a fright-free experience that has all the props and decor of the after-dark event, minus the live performers in the plaza.

Little Monsters Matinée Train

  • Friday to Sunday: 11:00am to 5:00pm (last train at 5:00pm)
  • Open Thanksgiving Day (October 14)
  • No spooky actors or live performances. Unlimited rides between 11:00am and 2:00pm Friday to Sunday.

The Ghost Train experience also features a haunted maze, pumpkin patch,
hands-on activities and tours by Stanley Park Ecology Society, storytellers, crafts and movies, plus food vendors such as The Looking Glass Canteen and Café, Insomniac’s Coffee, Organic Villa for plant-based options, organic popcorn from the CobHouse, and more.


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

BOGO! Buy one ticket online for select weekday dates in October and get another one free. Visit on October 15, 16, 21, and 22 to take advantage of this scream of a deal.

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.

    Since Funland in Poco closed down my little gal has been so sad as she’s missing the train and rides. We’ve never been to the Spooky train so this would be wonderful to do especially since it’s fright free for chickens like me 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win, fan@plumerea
