Love Halloween? Join us on the scariest train ride of the year.   Hear the church bells of Ludborough ring out as the Demonic Monk walks among us,
Do you dare brave the Spirits of Ludborough?   Board the train to conquer your fears !!
Disguise behind your best Halloween costumes, fearing the spirits onboard as they travel with you!!   If you make it safely to North Thoresby, jump off to join us as we lighten the atmosphere with a platform dance, we all love a good dance to The Time Warp !!

Don’t forget to bring your best carved pumpkins to display on the platform.
