Are you ready for a spooky train ride through the bone-chilling eerie Big Cypress Bayou in one of the Most Haunted Towns in America, Jefferson Texas?

All Aboard! Passengers can board the family-friendly Halloween Express at the historic Jefferson, Texas Railway Depot. Once onboard, you will be treated to a delightfully good time onboard the gas-powered antique locomotive that will take you on a 40-minute narrated excursion through the dark piney woods of East Texas.


There will be lots of twists and turns along the way as you learn the history of the wooly swamp, hear ghostly tales, see spooky scenes and be on the lookout for "Monsters From the Deep. They say Bigfoot makes his home here and he may just pop out from the wooded moss and vine-covered trees of the Cypress Bayou when you least expect it.
