CELEBRATE IT'S 21ST ANNIVERSARY THIS YEAR
Every year when Halloween comes around, Tweetsie Railroad welcomes the Ghost Train Festival, which offers nights of fright to brave guests who are courageous enough to brave the Ghost Train and the many spooky activities that go along with it.
Opens at 7:30pm on these dates:
• Sept. 21-22
• Sept. 28-29
• Oct. 5-6
• Oct. 12-13
• Oct. 19-20
• Oct. 26-27
The Ghost Train Festival comes out at night with many ghastly attractions to give guests thrills and chills all night long. Attractions include Ghost Train Rides, the exciting Haunted House, special Halloween shows, a 3-D maze, The Black Hole, trick-or-treating, the Freaky Forest, the Warp Tunnel and the Tweetsie Palace Spooktacular Black Light Show.
Tickets and Admission
Tickets go on advanced sale on July 5. Advanced tickets are required, as a limited number of guests are admitted nightly. Purchase a ticket for a specific night and time.
Admission is $38 per person for adults and children (age 2 and under are free). Admission includes all the nighttime events in the park including the ride on the Ghost Train, Trick-or-Treating for the kids, Haunted House, Tweetsie Palace Spooktacular, the rides in the Creepy Carnival, and the attractions in "The Boneyard” section, featuring the Black Hole, 3-D maze, and the “Freaky Forest."
Since the Ghost Train Festival is a nighttime attraction, some attractions are not open during the festival hours. These attractions include Miners Mountain and the Turnpike Cruisers.
Tickets can be purchased online and printed at home via www.tweetsie.com, through the Ticket Order Line (1-877-TWEETSIE) or at the Ticket Office beginning July 5. The Ticket Office is open during regular park hours. Keep in mind that many nights during the Ghost Train Festival sell out in advance. If the night has not sold out, tickets are available for purchase at the gate. Because the daytime admission and Ghost Train Festival are separate events, tickets purchased for daytime admission do not cover the Ghost Train Festival.
