A Chilling Ride On This Wyoming Ghost Trolley Will Give You The Fright Of Your Life
It’s well-known that Cheyenne is a pretty haunted place, and it’s where ghost hunters and thrill-seekers alike head for paranormal action. The ghost trolley is one spooky way to get all the haunting you can handle at once. Each year, as Halloween approaches and the veil between this world and the next grows thin, Cheyenne’s historic trolley hosts “Fright-Seeing” tours through the city, making sure to swing by all the supernatural spots and paranormal places, and recounting every spine-chilling detail of spectral sightings and eerie events. You can count on a frightful ride like this to be a sure-bet for getting into the spirit of Halloween.
Back in the 1800s, trolleys were the original way for people to travel around the city. Today, there are three trolleys providing historical tours of Cheyenne daily.
However, the last couple of weeks in October are dedicated to showing a different, more frightening side of Wyoming's history.
The 2017 ghost trolley will be running October 20, 21, 27, and 28 with tours starting at 6 and 7:30 p.m.
Paranormal investigators often go along for the ride. Many professional investigators work closely with the trolley team providing facts and insight to increase the fright factor.
The tour kicks off at the Cheyenne Depot. It's a good place to start, considering it's one of Cheyenne's haunted places.
A railway employee who was shot in the lobby of the depot reportedly roams the old place.
One of the great things about the ghost trolley tour is that it takes a different route each year, so you can come back again and again and have a new experience each time. Some of the places you might see along the way include the State Supreme Court Building...
The ghost of Judge Blume is said to haunt the halls here.
...Saint Mark's Episcopal Church...
Two spirits are supposed to haunt this church: an immigrant who died working on the bell tower and the pastor who hired him.
...the Atlas Theater...
As one of the oldest buildings in the city, the Atlas has had over a century to collect the numerous phantoms that have been reported to be there still.
...and the historic Plains Hotel.
It's believed that at least four — and maybe many more — spirits have made a permanent home at the Plains.
Halloween costumes aren't required, but dressing up certainly adds to the fun.
You do need tickets to ride the ghost trolley, and they tend to go fast, so it’s best to buy them in advance from the
Cheyenne Street Railway Trolley website.
