One of our favorite haunts in Los Angeles is the LA Live Steamers Ghost Train in Griffith Park. It is a 15 minute or so ride through a variety of scenes and themes. It is kid friendly, as long as they meet the height requirement of 34". The LA Live Steamers is a Railroad Museum and exists solely on donations and this is their primary fundraiser for the year. It's a great place to go even when it's not Halloween. They have exhibits including Walt Disney's Barn moved to the property from his home where Walt, himself, worked on his personal railway. The Ghost Train is open October 16, 17, 18, 23, 24, 25, 29, 30, 31 and November 1 from 7-10PM. Tickets are $15. It gets busy, so be prepared to wait. The line also usually calms down around 9. There are lots of great effects going on throughout the ride, including a large proportion of Spectral Illusions effects. We also created a custom effect for them, seen above. Enjoy your ride! There's no light at the end of their tunnel!
