The Halloween Train Ride Near Denver That Will Delight You In The Best Way Possible
It probably never crossed your mind to track down the best Halloween train ride near Denver, but darned if this Trick or Treat Train isn’t loads of fun for the whole family. On October 29th and 30th from 10am-4pm, the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden will host their annual Railroad Halloween Town extravaganza, offering tricks, treats, unlimited train rides, and festive activities. Don your best costume and chug on down to the museum for some safe, wholesome “not so spooky” Halloween fun.
The Colorado Railroad Museum opened in Golden in 1959 and is now the proud home of over 100 narrow and standard gauge steam and diesel locomotives, passenger cars, and cabooses, as well as a library, exhibit galleries, and the Depot General Store.
All aboard! Treats, tricks, and tons of family fun await at each station in the Railroad Halloween Town.
Full steam ahead on the Denver & Rio Grande Western Trick or Treat Train...and killer fall foliage to boot!
Creatively costumed conductors and engineers carry travelers in vintage passenger cars pulled by historic locomotives.
They'll fill your treat bags, tickle your funny bones, and make special stops along the way full of hilarious, harmless Halloween fun.
Show off your costume and snap some family photos at the Pumpkin Patch photo booth.
Have a giggle at the silly gravestones at the Olde Railroaders cemetery.
Hop on the "not so spooky" haunted caboose outfitted with spiders, mummies, and other festive decor.
But most importantly, share some quality time and enjoy a dose of Halloween fun with your little ones.
Don't let work get you down! Spend a day feeling like a kid again at the Colorado Railroad Museum's Trick or Treat Train and Halloween Town.
Admission rates are as follows: Museum Members and Children under 2 are FREE, Children $5, Adults $15, and Seniors $10.
Admission is valid all day and includes as many trips down the track as you'd like to enjoy and a plethora of other seasonal, rail-related activities.
The kiddos will be mesmerized by the garden model trains operated by the D&RGW throughout the day.
They'll love the museum itself, which is chocked full of exhibits, like the Denver HO Model Club that chugs the tracks in the basement.
And they're guaranteed to discover smiles and surprises around every corner.
And don’t forget about the nearby Georgetown Loop Train, which offers epic adventures year round, including a
glorious ride through fall foliage and a Haunted Forest Halloween Train for ages 12 and up, (October 21, 22, 28, & 29).
