Ride three different steam railroads & experience machines of the industrial age

While our regular Hesston Ghost Train weekends are just a wee-bit scary... some don't like even mention of the Mad Lumberjack. We don't blame them!

This day is a very fun time with your younger child who likes Halloween but not the scare or ghost stories.

Decorations still are in the woods for you to enjoy along with kids music in the train. This is also a great time to avoid some of our more crowded weekends.
