Halloween Express Train Rides
Kids of all ages will want to get in on the fun when monsters gather at the Hotel Translyvania to induct a young werewolf into their Monster Club on October 19 and 26 in St. Marys, GA .
As passengers ride the rails through woodlands and marshlands on the way to meet the monsters, Halloween entertainment abounds. Then at the midway, the real show comes alive when Dracula and his friends try to educate the little werewolf on the skills needed to be a monster. In the mix is a funny confrontation between the good witch and the bad witch.
Barbara Ryan, entertainment director for St. Marys Express, said, “On the Halloween Express, we go back in time and reclaim the traditions of yesteryear with lots of family fun and levity.”
Ryan said the Halloween Express monsters will be more comical than scary, and the good witch will have everyone cheering as she gets the best of the bad witch in a fun way to celebrate Halloween. In addition to Dracula, train passengers will witness Frankenstein, the Skeleton, and the Mummy grooming the werewolf. Making a non-appearance will be the Invisible Man.
“As usual, we expect an early sell-out for these excursions,” Ryan said. “The Halloween Express has always been one of our most popular events with children and adults.”
Train passengers can also enjoy free admission to the St. Marys Railroad Museum at the train station.
