New Hope's ghost train is the scariest thing you’ll do this Halloween

The terrifying journey includes a stop at an equally spooky Halloween festival

There’s something spooky about an old train, and the New Hope Railroad in Pennsylvania has a frightening new Halloween adventure that promises plenty of screams while you ride the rails.

No Hope After Dark is a terrifying journey on a historic train that departs New Hope bound for the “realm of the unknown.” The ride itself is a creepy, ominous journey through the woods that will keep you on the edge of your seat before you arrive at your final destination: a Halloween festival featuring a haunted maze where ghosts, goblins and creatures of the night lurk around every corner. On some nights, once you make your way through the maze, you’ll be rewarded with live music under the moonlit sky and food trucks serving delicious fare. The entire journey lasts just under two hours.

Rides on the train start on Friday, October 6 and will run every Friday through Sunday through Halloween. There will be occasional Wednesday and Thursday dates as well as added dates Monday, October 30, and Tuesday, October 31. Tickets start at $53 for coach seats and $79 for first-class seats. For those who dare, tickets are available here.

While the No Hope After Dark experience will be too frightening for anyone under the age of 13, New Hope Railroad offers a train ride for the little ones too. The Trick or Treat Train brings to life the tale of Spookley the Square Pumpkin and includes costuming and trick-or-treating around the train platform.
