SCREAM THROUGH A SCARY STEAMER RIDE
12th Annual Ghost Train at Griffith Park
Griffith Park - Board a miniature train at "Scarewood" Station and travel through devilish displays of spooky spirits, creepy clowns, witches, vampire babies and other frightful fiends. Scream your way past 18-foot tall Halloween pumpkin creatures, an Old Western Ghost Town and more.
The multi-media (lighting, video and audio) experience also includes smoke effects and the popular haunted mine tunnel, as well as animatronics - and maybe even some surprises. New 2010 features are an Appalachian Mountain theme, including: Grandma's Potting Shed, with 24 singing potted plants and a giant man-eating plant finale; Grandpa's Hillbilly Hill, which has an old geezer in a rocking chair on the porch of his cabin being a curmudgeon with a 16-foot tall moonshine still; plus rats, hogs, a talking tree and more.
The 12th annual Halloween Ghost Train attraction at the Los Angeles Live Steamers Railroad Museum (LALSRM) will be offered October 15-17, 22-24 and 28-31, 2010 from 7:00pm to 10:00pm each night. All passengers must be at least 34 inches tall and weigh less than 350 lbs.
There is a suggested donation of $7 per person, riders are encouraged to go early, as lines can be very long and dress warm. The Halloween Ghost Train is the largest annual fundraising event put on by LALSRM, which is a nonprofit organization; proceeds will be used to pay for maintenance and purchase equipment.
The Los Angeles Live Streamers Railroad Museum is located at 5202 Zoo Drive in Griffith Park (adjacent to Travel Town Museum). Information about LALSRM special events and more is available at www.lals.org or by calling (323) 661-8958. Regular weekly public rides led by a 1/8-scale steam, diesel or electric locomotive are given on Sunday from 11:00am to 3:00pm, with a $3 suggested donation.
