Chugging into Halloween: The Eerie Express Experience!

October has always been synonymous with the vibrant hues of fall and the spine-tingling excitement of Halloween. At the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum, we’ve taken the festivities up a notch with the launch of our Halloween Eerie Express! Our inaugural weekend was nothing short of magical, with guests arriving in a delightful array of costumes, each more imaginative than the last.

The Halloween Eerie Express isn’t just a train ride; it’s an immersive experience designed to captivate both the young and the young-at-heart. As the train chugs along, passengers are treated to the scenic beauty of Tennessee, painted in autumn’s best colors. But the real fun begins once you disembark.

Step into our family-friendly fun house, where giggles and gasps go hand in hand. Navigate through playful mazes, encounter whimsical characters, and let your imagination run wild. For those with a competitive streak, various games await, each promising heaps of fun and perhaps a prize or two.

No fall celebration is complete without a visit to a pumpkin patch. Handpick your favorite pumpkin, be it round, tall, or quirky, and make it a canvas for your creativity. Carve a jack-o’-lantern, paint a masterpiece, or simply let it adorn your porch in its natural glory.

And because we believe in ending on a sweet note, every guest leaves with a goodie bag, a little token to remember the day’s adventures.

So, as the days grow shorter and the nights cooler, add the Halloween Eerie Express to your list of must-do fall activities. It’s more than just a train ride; it’s a journey into the heart of the season, filled with laughter, memories, and a touch of magic. Come join the fun, and let’s make this October unforgettable!
