Due ot the civic strike in Vancouver, Stanley Park is canceling their annual Ghost Train that usually operates during the fall. I would highly recommend one of my “Best of 604” picks as an alternative: The Bear Creek Park Train. Sure it’s located all the way out there in Surrey, but let’s just add that to the frighteningly good scare you’ll get riding their Halloween ghost train.
During the Day (suggested for the younger kiddies)
What: The Bear Creek Park Halloween Festival which includes “Pumpkin Express” train ride, mask making, crafts, games and everyone gets to take a pumpkin home
When: 10am to 5pm starting October 6 until October 31
After hours (suggested for those who want to be spooked)
What: The Bear Creek Park Ghost Train
When: 6:30pm to 10pm starting October 24 until October 31
The 2007 Halloween Night Train ride will be our best production ever! This is a SCARY ride designed to have you screaming, jumping, laughing and having a great time with friends!
Popular characters from previous yearsâ€™ performances will be back. Chainsaw Charlie will be in fine form. Look for many new surprises and old favorites. You will have scary sounds and experiences even before you go on your train ride! Great fun! [Spooky Details]
