This all depends on the child. Some children are scared just because of the darkness. There are loud explosions on the Ghost Train ride. We don’t recommend  the Haunted House, the Freaky Forest, or the Ghost Train for children under age 8.

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.

Yes. You must choose your train ride time when you purchase your ticket. 

Train rides are by reservation only. If you miss your scheduled train ride, there may not be space available on later trains. 

The first train leaves about 8:00 p.m. and then every 30 minutes throughout the evening. On Saturdays, October 15, 22, and 29 the first train leaves at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are nonrefundable. 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.

No—they are two separate events. Daytime shows and attractions have our famous Wild West theme. The nighttime operation is Halloween-oriented. The park closes at 6:00 p.m. for the daytime operation and reopens at 7:30 p.m. for the Ghost Train Halloween Festival.

During the Ghost Train, we do not offer any group rates, nor do we honor any discounts or coupons.
