Since I am a BIG fan of Halloween, I love writing about the many events happening around Vancouver and nearby cities that you can participate in to test how brave you are in the face of terror.
I went aboard Stanley Park’s Ghost Train last year, and it was a very fun experience!
This year, the theme is “Alice in Nightmareland”. Of course, if you are familiar with Disney’s classic, “Alice in Wonderland”, you will know what kind of theme they are going with. It will be Alice in Wonderland turned upside-down.
What does that mean?
You will follow the rabbit down the rabbit-hole, only this is deep into a nightmare and not a dream. On your ghost train ride, you will encounter demonic playing cards, the evil and feisty queen who is always on the lookout, screaming “off with your head”!
Just remember to come out with your head intact in the process.
If you prefer to skip the train, there is also an illuminating assortment of lights and Halloween-themed displays. In addition, you get access into the Haunted Farmyard. In there, you will see all kinds of creatures, even live ones!
