HALLOWEEN EERIE EXPRESS: ULTIMATE FAMILY FUN

All Aboard the Halloween Eerie Express: An Enchanting Fall Experience 🎃🚂

October, with its golden hues and crisp air, welcomes all to celebrate the spookiest time of the year. And what better way to do so than by hopping on the Halloween Eerie Express!

A Trip Through Vintage Charms 🚂
Imagine starting your evening aboard a vintage train, chugging through breathtaking vistas. Our journey takes us over four mesmerizing bridges and through the historical Missionary Ridge Tunnel. As the scenic views keep you engrossed, anticipation for what lies ahead at Funhouse Station builds up.

Funhouse Station: A Festival of Gentle Thrills 🕸️
Upon reaching the Funhouse Station, the real adventure begins. Here’s a sneak peek into what awaits you:

  • Eerie Fun House: Step into a 20-room, 2,000 square foot world of gentle thrills. Every room, with its unique theme, special lighting, and captivating decorations, promises surprises at every corner. But fret not! Designed with younger children in mind, there aren’t any spine-chilling scares here.
  • Engaging Activities: While you’re at the station, indulge in a plethora of activities. Be mesmerized by storytellers weaving tales, challenge yourself at the blacklight mini golf, let your kids’ creativity shine with coloring pages, and adorn them with vibrant temporary tattoos.
  • Treats & Souvenirs: Every child holding a Halloween Eerie Express ticket gets to pick out a mini pumpkin and a goody bag, ensuring the night remains memorable.

Duration & Departures
The entire Eerie Express experience lasts a little over an hour and a half. Choose your preferred departure time:

  • 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on most Fridays and Saturdays in October.
  • An additional 3:30 p.m. departure on Saturdays, ideal for families with young kids who prefer an earlier bedtime.

Come in Your Halloween Best! 🧙‍♀️
We encourage children to don their spookiest, funniest, or most charming costumes. Join in our costume contest and stand a chance to win exciting prizes, with categories for both boys and girls.

Hungry? Try the Depot Deli! 🥪
Before or after your train adventure, make sure to visit the Depot Deli inside Grand Junction Station. Serving supper with extended hours until 7:30 p.m., it’s the perfect spot to satiate your hunger.
