I know several people who have been on the Ghost Train and claim it is awesome fun. I must admit, this event appears to be a little more “PG” than my usual outing. Could pick up some good ideas for Halloween costumes though. Beautiful Stanley Park isn’t far from the Dungeon, so I’ve decided I should check this out. The Ghost Train runs October 9th to November 1st 6 PM to 10 PM daily. The information below was cut and paste directly from the website. For more information on this event go here.

Zombies. Voodoo gods. Wild Women of the Woods. Three-headed dogs. Mexican witches’ brew. All these and more are in store for those who dare to climb aboard this year’s Stanley Park Hallowe’en Ghost Train.

Just ask Georgie—if you get a chance. In the latest Ghost Train adventure, Georgie is on the run, dodging and ducking an international group of ghouls and ghosties that inhabit the underworld. Will the mischievous child outrun the Wild Woman of the Woods, outwit the voodoo god Obatal, outsmart the Goddess of Death Kali? And can Georgie stay one step ahead of the man with the child-sized sack, Gentleman Jack?

Since 1999, the Ghost Train has become an annual tradition for thousands of families craving thrills and excitement. Reinventing itself each year with new themes, sets, costumes and many more surprises conjured up by the creative team at Mortal Coil Performance Society , the Ghost Train is a uniquely wonderful and fun experience every trick-or-treat season.

Directors Sharon Bayly, Peter Hall and Marietta Kozak of Mortal Coil head up this year’s crew of actors, dancers, stilt performers, and puppeteers bringing demons from all corners of the world’s folklore to life. Don’t worry, though—even as you venture through the Mouth of Hell and travel to the Underworld, you’ll be out of harm’s way in the safety of the Ghost Train…trust us! Mwahahahahahaha!
