Poor Jack! He may be dead as a doornail but instead of resting in peace, he wanders trapped in an ancient Celtic Hallowe’en world where nothing is what it seems. 

Join Jack on his journey as his lantern casts a light on floating Druids, a 12 foot monster and creatures barely human.

Every year the Stanley Park Ghost Train brings riders of all ages on a Hallowe’en-inspired journey through the dark woods of Stanley Park. Running in conjunction with the Stanley Park Ghost Train, SPES presents “Creatures of the Night”, a free family-friendly experience with staff and volunteers from Stanley Park Ecology Society. Come visit us on the train plaza, October 12 – 31, to learn about Stanley Park’s owls and how they are perfectly adapted to life in the dark forest.

Train Plaza activities also include:

  • The Haunted Maze
  • Arts and crafts
  • The pumpkin patch
