Halloween Ghost Trains

Dare you take a ride?

Seems like the old amusement park may not be as abandoned as everyone thought, there’s something freaky on the Ferris Wheel and the Helter Skelter is definitely haunted, and as for the Ghost Train…

Clutch your ticket tight and take the ride of your life on this spooky steam spectacular. There are all kinds of ghostly goings on, including:

  • Steam powered scares on a haunted steam train ride to Rawtenstall and back through dark tunnels and past lonely platforms
  • A ghastly cast of giggling ghouls, ghosts and goblins that will join you for the journey, make sure to show off your best fancy dress
  • Terrifying treats available at the station buffet, plus every child gets a goody bag
  • A creepy craft workshop at Bury Transport Museum, the perfect way to get set for the scare
