Halloween Thrills on the Bayou 

For the ultimate Halloween experience be sure to goblin' up tickets to the 15th Annual Runaway Fright Train each Friday and Saturday October 1-29, 2016




The Runaway Fright Train will feature “The Hauting of Black Bayou”.  As you ride through the dark woods in this 40 minute trip along the Big Cypress Bayou, you'll see ghostly spirits emerging from the swamplands of East Texas. They will be coming after you! 

The scenes and haunters along the track will keep you at the edge of your seat and give you a laugh now and then, too. This Halloween theater on wheels is a family-friendly event for ages 2 to 92 for a howling good time.  

Free activities include children’s crafts and games, and a movie. Glow sticks and other Halloween products and concessions are available for sale in the Haunted Historic Depot.

The event will take place at Historic Jefferson Railway, 400 E. Austin, Jefferson, Texas.  The easiest way to order tickets is to purchase online.  You can also buy tickets at the Historic Jefferson Railway depot during event hours. Train seating is limited so get your tickets early!  Come out for a rip-roaring good time.
