All aboard!

Fall season is about to get a whole lot spookier with the return of the Halloween train at the BC Forest Discovery Centre in Duncan.

Starting October 21st, the train, Samson, is a 1910 steam locomotive, that will take passengers on a ride through an enchanted, 100-acre forest.

Samson will chug past ghostly scenes and scary characters at the museum so be prepared for a bone-chilling experience.

The family-friendly event will include Halloween festivities and ride the train, of course!

There will be one train per 30-minute time slot with limited tickets per train. The first train is at 4 p.m. and the last train is at 8:30 p.m.

Activities each evening include crafts, train rides, trick-or-treat stations for the little ones, and live entertainment.

There will be lots of hot chocolate, coffee and hot food available to purchase so you can sit back, watch the fun and enjoy the warmth of the popular fire pits.

A number of live actors will be on site as well.

Tickets are $14 for adults, $12 for kids 3 to 12 years of age, and children 2 and under are admitted free. Tickets can be purchased ahead of time online.
