Silver Creek and Stephenson Railroad - Train of Terror
2954 S. Walnut Rd
Freeport, IL 61032
Each night, the harsh light of reality fades into darkness, but there is nothing in the dark that is not there in the light. Or is there? On certain October nights, the darkness casts only a thin veil over your primeval fears. This veil is pierced by the twin steel rails of the Silver Creek and Stephenson Railroad.
The train of terror embarks upon those rails into a surreal realm haunted by ghosts, ghouls, vampires, zombies and other pillars of the undead community. Through the years, many terrors have been visited upon the passengers of this train. Is your nightmare an insane killer with a bloody machete and flaming torch? Perhaps it's a ghost ship whose pirate crew barrages you with cannon fire. Maybe it's imprisoned lost souls laboring away in an eternity of despair. All of these have been seen in past years.
What does this year hold for travelers? Ride the train and find out... if you dare.
Train of Terror Fare: $8
