Haunted Forest Scream Train rolls out the thrills and chills

Surprises lurk around every corner at one of Surrey's best-loved Halloween attractions.

Starting Friday, the forests will come alive with nighttime creatures and ghouls as the Scream Train rolls through Surrey’s Bear Creek Park.

The Haunted Forest Scream Train runs from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, Oct. 18 to Thursday, Oct. 31 – Halloween night, surprisingly one of the best nights to go for a fright if you’re trying to avoid a crowd.

The terrifying Chainsaw Charlie and his trusty Husqvarna is back, along with the other members of the walking dead, who roam every platform of the Scream Train – passengers are advised to keep well inside the car if they don’t want to lose a leg or arm.

Scary sounds and special effects emanating from the inky darkness of the forest creates a truly visceral experience. That’s why the attraction is recommended for older children who can handle being scared.

It’s not for nothing visitors are warned: “Be Prepared to be Scared,” and reminded to bring an extra change of underwear.

Daytime, it’s a different story, when younger folks and their families will love to take a ride on the Pumpkin Express as it travels through the decorated forest.

As part of the Bear Creek Park Halloween Festival, join in with the crafts and other activities under the tent on the platform. Each child takes a pumpkin home.

Groups, families, birthdays and schools are all welcome.

The Pumpkin Express runs from 10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Oct. 11 to Oct. 31.

Adults are $9 and children are $8:50 for both daytime and evening trains.

It’s a miniature train with full-size fun and excitement, running at the Bear Creek Park Train 13750 88 Avenue. info 604-501-1232 or visit www.bctrains.com.
