Halloween Ghost Train in Burbank

This scary Halloween Train tip just in from LACityMom writer: Beth Szymkowski:

My kids are in the in-between stage of celebrating Halloween. They want to carve pumpkins but are not enthused about a cute outing to the pumpkin patch. They want to be scared, but are too young, in my opinion, for the absolute terror of Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights.

So I was looking for a mildly scary experience to put us in the spirit of the season and found one in the Los Angeles Live Steamers Railroad Museum’s Ghost Train in Burbank.

Riders straddle the one-eighth scale train for a twenty-two minute ride. It travels through numerous tableaux that would have sent my sons, aged ten and thirteen, screaming when they were toddlers but are more disturbing than terrifying to them now. There’s a section with evil baby dolls, a clown tunnel, something resembling a torture chamber with people being loudly electrocuted, and a creepy coal mine. The folks at the volunteer organization have done a great job of showing something interesting and unsettling to look at almost every inch of the way. That said, nothing jumps out. No real people are hidden amongst the props.

And it’s on a train, which automatically makes it fun in my book. They offered advance tickets for the first time this year, but have not ironed out the entrance process. Expect a long wait even if you have a ticket. The night we went, several children were running around an adjacent field playing with light sabers and having a great time doing it. I went another Mom, and three ten year olds and a thirteen year old. The ten year olds agreed the ride was well worth it, and thought it appropriate for kids aged six to nine.
