Each train car features a spooky theme and guests are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes to the event.

The journey starts inside a huge tent filled with not-so-scary skeletons, a maze through a series of boo-rific decorated rooms and a big barnyard where guests 12 and under receive a free pumpkin.
