Halloween Eerie Ticket Ages 2+

Halloween Eerie Express

Passengers begin by boarding a vintage train for a trip over four bridges and through Missionary Ridge Tunnel. Once arriving at the Funhouse Station, riders disembark and enter the Funhouse area.

  • Experience a spooky vintage train ride!
  • Enter the Eerie Fun House for some gentle thrills!
  • Enjoy games while you’re there!
  • Get a bag of treats to take home with you!

Features include storytelling, a tour through the “gentle thrills” Eerie Fun House, blacklight mini golf, games, temporary tattoos, coloring pages, ride back to Grand Junction, and a bag of treats for the children. A festive Halloween experience! The event is a little over an hour and a half in length. The fun house is a 20-room, 2,000 square foot “old time” fun experience.

This family-friendly trip will get your fall started off right. Something different for families to enjoy together! Designed for families with younger children, it is NOT a haunted house and you will not be scared by anyone jumping out from behind a wall!

The entire family will enjoy the evening with a train ride, storytelling, indoor blacklight mini golf, temporary tattoos, cider, and a walk through the Fun House with each room themed a little differently with special lighting, interesting decorations, and many surprises! All children holding a Halloween Eerie Express ticket can pick out a mini pumpkin and a goody bag, too.

What time? Departures are 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on most Fridays and Saturdays in October, with an additional departure at 3:30 p.m. on Saturdays only. This earlier time is ideal for those families with young children who need to be in bed early!

Children are encouraged to wear their costumes, and we’ll have a contest with prizes for the best costume (boys and girls.)

Try our Depot Deli inside Grand Junction Station where you can get a good supper! Extended hours are featured just for Eerie Express passengers until 7:30 p.m.


Our family went on the Eerie Halloween Express trip. Claire P - Fall 2022

Our family went on the Eerie Halloween Express trip. The kids really enjoyed it. The staff were friendly, and very involved with the trip and activities. We loved our conductor, who provided History during our exit from Grand Junction. The story time, and children’s activities were cute, and kept their attention. We really enjoyed it! Would love to do the Polar Express next time!

We took the Halloween Eerie Express Susan C. - Fall 2022

We took the Halloween Eerie Express (Saturday 3:30) with our 2-year-old granddaughter and had a wonderful time! The experience is exciting but not scary for young children. About half of the children (and some parents) showed up in costume. You are fine either way. The train ride to the family fun house is only about 15 minutes, so not too long for little ones. We spent an hour at the fun house where they had a variety of activities that appealed to various ages. They start that part of the experience with a storyteller (ours was very good).
