Do you dare ride the “Train Of Terror” this Halloween season?

It sounds like a unique experience for this time of year, and it is sponsored by Friends of the Nevada Southern Railway at the Nevada State Railroad Museum located at 601 Yucca Street in Boulder City, 89005. The “Train of Terror” departs at 5:30pm and 7:30pm on various evenings from September 30 through October 30. Please be aware that this experience is rated PG-13 and it is NOT intended for younger children.

If you would like to order tickets, click here. Apparently, the trains sell out quickly, so if you plan on riding the “Train of Terror,” you may want to purchase tickets now.  According to the website, this 90-minute experience takes place both on and off the train, and it explores the “mystery of the Nevada Test Site.”

This sounds like a fun and interesting experience for the Halloween season. However, patrons dressed in Halloween costumes will NOT be allowed on the train. You should also know that the organizers require that you arrive at least 30 minutes in advance of your departure time. All tickets must be purchased online.

“All Aboard!” for the “Train of Terror,” if you dare.

9 Halloween Attractions You Must-Visit In Las Vegas

The last Saturday of October is coming sooner than one might expect. Halloween being only 39 days away sets the tone to start jumping into the festivities of the orange and black holiday.

The best part about the end of September and beginning of October in Vegas is that the weather isn’t scorching. Despite being hot 300 days out of the year it does cool down which allows for the residents to leave their house.

Trick-or-treating is still a bit a ways, so to hold off the sweet craving we decided to explore what the entertainment capital of the U.S. has to offer. Many Las Vegas locals will start to see pumpkin patches pop up around the valley with carnival games, blow up jungle gyms and fall foods. If you’re seeking other fun things to do we have the perfect list. Plus, finding things to do with the entire family can be challenging at times.

Vegas is the premier place to celebrate all things scary as we have a few destinations that are known to cause some commotion. From haunted houses, scary escape rooms and eerie corn mazes are just a few of the things to partake in. No matter if you’re on the east side, near Nellis, or deep into Summerlin, near Queensridge, there are activities on all sides of the valley.

Each of the event places below are fitted for a variety of age groups and are catered to different levels of terror. Tickets are selling out for many of these places so booking in advance may be in your best interest. Prices may very and tend to go up the closer to Halloween. Check out each of the places social media and websites for exact details.
