If you like spooky
“I’d gone for a ride on the pier ghost train, now i’m never gonna be the same again,” a poem by, Dean Farnell (The Ghost Train Ride)
You too, will never be the same again after the Fright Night ghost train ride. October 26, and October 28, 2012 on the Fillmore & Western Railway, Bodies Boarding at 6:45 p.m. and Dearly Departing at 7:00 p.m. The tour guide states, “after the search for the Headless Horseman, you will be dying to return at 10:15 p.m.”
This special Halloween tour dares you to creep onboard a hauntingly vintage train for a spooktacular adventure, with “Ichabog” as your destination. The spooky feast includes BBQ tri-tip and chicken, potato salad, bread and beans. Yum, yum.
The tour then embarks on a daring hayride, to search for the HEADLESS HORSEMAN. Who knows what other creatures, zombies, etc. might be lurking. Dress in costume (of course is more fun), or come as a mere mortal, if you dare. They are dying to see you there!
Reservations are required. Tickets for Adults $47.00, Youth (4-12) $32.00, Children (2-3) $24.00, under 2 years old free on lap.
Contact Reservations@fwry.com or 805-524-2546 for more details.
