Fiendish Steam and Screampump

“There’s a definite chill in the air on Sunday 30 October during daylight…and they say the steam hauled Ghost Train of the old and eerie Chiltern foothills comes ‘alive’ in a very different and spooky way.
We have heard there may be Hitch-hiking Ghosts, perhaps a Haunted station and maybe even Ghastly Ghouls abroad – dare you come along for a ride?”

Spooky Halloween rides. Children in Halloween costume will receive a treat.




However you spend your Halloween we hope you have a frightfully good time!
