For the first time ever, two popular, family-friendly Halloween events can be visited in one location in Griffith Park: Ghost Train and Boney Island. Each show will have its own separate entrance, schedule and tickets.

The Ghost Train adventure starts at the Haunted Station at LA Live Steamers where guests will board a 1/8th scale train for a 23-minute ride into a spell-binding world of fire-breathing dragons, Frankenstein’s Castle, ghostly graveyards, giant spiders and roaring dinosaurs, all professionally created with life-sized characters, projected images, animatronics, sound, fire, fog and theatrical lighting. Beyond the towering railroad bridge encounter the magical world of Boney Island: animated skeletons, a dazzling water-music-light show and wacky side shows.

Created for all ages, these two unique, Halloween events provide thrills, chills and spooky fun—no actors will jump out and touch guests; there will be no blood or gore.

Ghost Train is produced by LA Live Steamers Railroad Museum, and is their annual fundraiser. Boney Island is a separate, walk-through show, located at the west end of LA Live Steamers, near the Travel Town fence. For more info visit
