On Friday & Saturday, October 27 & 28 the Boothbay Railway Village will once again be cloaked in mystical moonlight and creepy candlelight for the Ghost Train. Totally reimagined by a new, all-volunteer committee, the Ghost Train will now have some new features.
Just once a year the ghouls and goblins come out to haunt the otherwise peaceful Boothbay Railway Village. Passengers will journey through enchanted cemeteries, see zombies and other ghastly things, hear the calls of strange beasts and experience other unimaginable apparitions.
Unsuspecting visitors must enter the haunted station to board the Ghost Train, if they dare. Witches and other monsters will assist the engineer and train crew with departures every 30 minutes. The first two trains at 4:30 and 5:00 are perfect for tiny tots. The trips leaving at 5:30, 6:00, and 6:30 will be a bit spookier as the sun sets. For older kids plan to travel with us at 7:00, 7:30 or 8:00 pm when the creepy crawlies and sinister spooks will travel right on board the train with you and things will get scary.
Guests are encouraged to dress up and bring along their own trick or treat bag. They will be invited to trick or treat though the Village and end up at the new haunted barn for one last scare.
Tickets will be available at the door. The ticket price for anyone 4 and older is $8, kids 3 and under are free. Museum members receive a discounted price of $5. Ticket sales for Ghost Train support the Museum, which is a 501(c)3 non-profit.
