Spooky Spectacular at Steamtown National Historic Site-Oct.28 and 29, 2017-Train Info and Reservations-570-340-5204

SCRANTON, Pa. – Calling all ghosts and goblins, witches and wizards, pirates and princesses! On Saturday, October 28 and Sunday, October 29, Steamtown National Historic Site will host “Spooky Spectacular” special Halloween events at the park!

On Saturday, October 28, family-friendly activities are planned for children, most suitably for ages 6-15. Children of all ages, though, are invited to visit in Halloween finery. Listen to spooky stories and skeletal tales, and then build your own skeleton at the park’s theater. Trick-or-treaters can also follow clues to find “ghoulish goody stations” (while supplies last) throughout the park during a “Trick-or-Train Treasure Hunt.” Visitors can also take the “spooked out” “Scranton Limited” short train rides, $5.00 per person, all ages 6 and older. 

On Sunday, October 29, along with similar scary in-park events and the “spooked out” “Nay Aug Limited” short train rides, a special diesel-powered “Ghoulsboro Express” excursion – to Gouldsboro, Pennsylvania – departs at 11:00 a.m., returning to the park at 3:00 p.m. Dress in costume, and join boys and ghouls of all ages for this “haunted” fun ride. Light refreshments will be available for sale at the station stop. Ticket pricing is $34 for adults, ages 16-61, $29 for seniors, ages 62 and older, $22 for children ages 6-15. Children to age 5 require a free ticket. 

The park no longer charges an entrance fee and the “spooked out” short train rides are first-come, first-served, but reservations for the “Ghoulsboro Express” are strongly recommended (same day walk-up tickets may be available, but internet and email sales are not). For credit/debit card reservations, phone 570-340-5204, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. daily.
