Halloween train transforms from cute to scary every night at sunset

Oct 12 2021, 4:38 pm

A Halloween-themed train in Metro Vancouver is back this fall, and it begins every day with pumpkin-filled cuteness before taking riders on a scarier journey after dark.

Kids can ride the rails at the Bear Creek Train and enjoy Mini Golf this year; $11.50 admission includes a train ride, pumpkin, and a treat. It operates from October 9 to 31 every day from 10 am to 4:30 pm.

But every day at 6:30 pm, the ride gets a little scarier. The Scream Train kicks off on October 16 this year, and organizers say it’s not for the faint of heart; they recommend it for people age 12 and up.

“Dare to come through the haunted forest with our creepy scary actors. Don’t let Chainsaw Charlie get you,” the event says.

There’s a concession stand operating for both types of trains, where riders can purchase hot and cold drinks, chips, candy, and popcorn.
