FAQ'S 2013 GHOST TRAIN HALLOWEEN FESTIVAL
- What is the admission price and what does it include? Admission is $28 per person for adults and children (age 2 and under are free). Admission includes all the nighttime events in the park including the ride on the Ghost Train, Trick-or-Treating for the kids, Haunted House, Tweetsie Palace Spooktacular, the rides in the Creepy Carnival, and the attractions in "The Boneyard” section, featuring the Black Hole, 3-D maze, and the “Freaky Forest”.
- What is not open at night? Miner’s Mountain will not be open during Ghost Train. Our newest Ghost Train area, “The Boneyard” will open in The Hacienda with the Black Hole, 3-D Maze, and the “Freaky Forest”. The Turnpike Cruisers in the Creepy Carnival will not operate during Ghost Train.
- Will my child be scared? This all depends on the child. Some children are scared just because of the darkness. There may be loud explosions on the Ghost Train ride. We don’t recommend that children under the age of 8 go through the Haunted House, the Freaky Forest, or ride the Ghost Train.
- What are the hours for the Ghost Train? The gates open at 7:30 p.m. and the park will remain open until 11:30 p.m. No one will be admitted into the park after 10:00 p.m.
- Can I ride the train more than once? You may ride as many times as you would like; however, on busy nights you may have time for one ride only.
- How often does the train run? The first train leaves after dark (about 8:00 p.m. in early October, and earlier in late October), and then about every 30 minutes throughout the evening.
- Do I need a reservation to ride the train? No. Each ride is first come, first seated.
- What if I can’t come on the night printed on my ticket? Tickets are non-refundable. Tickets may be exchanged at least 48 hours prior to the event for another night as long as the date on your ticket has not expired and the night you want is still available. There is a $5 fee for ticket exchange.
- Where can I get Ghost Train Halloween Festival Tickets? Tickets can be purchased online and printed at home at our Web site, www.tweetsie.com, through our toll-free Ticket Order Line at 1-877-TWEETSIE, or at the Tweetsie Railroad Ticket Office, beginning in July 5, 2013.
