Perhaps intense frights and ghoulish delights aren’t your cup of tea. Maybe you’re looking for something more family-fun friendly. If so, hop on down to the Halloween Eerie Express at the Tennessee Valley Railroad Grand Junction Station for a spooktacular fun time. Priced at only $22 a ticket for patrons aged 2 and up, this excursion transports you and the family on a 90-minute ride to a fear-free, 20-room funhouse filled with festive fellowship.
Riding the local Tennessee Valley Railroad during Halloween Eerie Express supports their existence, allowing them to offer such sentimental and sweet train rides for you and the entire family.
The journey is round trip, so no worries about ghastly ghouls preventing your trip home to watch “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”. Once aboard, the train chug-chug-chugs along slowly until you reach the Funhouse Station, approximately ten minutes later.
Upon arrival at the Funhouse, the fun truly begins! A great wise storyteller reveals words of wisdom and holiday cheer. To everyone’s surprise, that isn’t the extent of this truly spooktacular evening. When storytime ends, the house full of fun awaits. Mirrors, peering into one’s soul, dance bravely upon the bosom of truth and brevity. Childish laughter fills the air, seeping into every pore.
Yet mirrors and smoke alone don’t satisfy one’s appetite for activities. Black-lit putt putt sets the mood for pure perfection among the young travelers. The entire Tennessee Valley Railroad staff was quite professional and seemed genuinely eager to satisfy each and every paying customer.
Little ones are encouraged to dress up in costumes to enhance their spooky experiences. Bags of goodies and treats are included for savory sensations. Then it was over. How could something so spectacular and fun last forever?
