Stanley Park is one of our most celebrated parks here in Vancouver – but not many know that it holds some spooky secrets during the Halloween season. One of those things is the incredible Stanley Park Ghost Train that manages to thrill residents each an every year with a new spine tingling theme. Last year I had the pleasure of checking out their Celtic themed train which completely blew our minds.
This year they are putting together something fantastic, something incredible, this year they are presenting to Vancouver: Alice in Nightmareland. Alice is a little older this time she falls down the rabbit hole and that equals some scarier and more spooky themed adventures. But then, what could she expect, wandering through a grand graveyard at night on Halloween?
Follow Alice and the Not-So-White Rabbit through an endless series of stone doors and enter into a gothic nightmare world of tombs and tombstones, crypts, and catacombs! Of course on this tour you can safely eat and drink the treats they have on site without worry. Last thing they need are a bunch of giant and miniature patrons running around stepping on people or getting stepped on. So come out with your older kids this year for some spooky nights out, of course they always have matinee showings in case you are worried about your little ones in the dark.
