{{Giveaway}} Alice in Nightmareland comes to the Stanley Park Ghost Train!

Alice in Nightmareland

Each year the Stanley Park Ghost Train takes our riders on a journey through a mystical and magical world, themed by Halloween and other creepy tales. The train is covered, but dress warmly.

This year’s train invites riders to watch as Alice falls down the rabbit hole again. Only this time, she is older and things aren’t what they seem. 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!
