Back by popular demand, and bigger than before, Strasburg Spooktacular is a family-friendly journey aboard America’s oldest short line railroad, through Lancaster County’s harvest landscape, and destined for a Halloween celebration at our picturesque Groff’s Grove.

Our Spooktacular passengers will board a designated Coach car at our East Strasburg Station, and then our steam-powered Iron Horse will usher their carriage through farmland, pausing to hear the ghost of old LO&S #9, passing the graveyard at Carpenter’s Crossing, and finally stopping at Groff’s Grove.

At Groff’s Grove, guests may disembark and enjoy a harvest festival including trick-or-treating, games, pumpkin decorating, and themed arts and crafts. Snacks will be available for purchase at Groff’s Grove.

Our Spooktacular visitors will be able to board any later train for the return trip back East Strasburg, where our Fun Extras (Cranky Cars, Pint-sized Pufferbelly, Pump Car) will be operating until 4:00 PM. These activites are included in all Strasburg Spooktacular tickets.

Event trains depart for Groff’s Grove on the hour, with the first departure at 11:oo AM and the last departure at 3:00 PM from the East Strasburg Station. The latest return trip from Groff’s Grove departs at 6:30 PM to bring passengers back to the Station. Strasburg Rail Road’s Fun Extras operate from 11:45 AM to 4:00 PM at the Station.

This is a family-friendly event. Passengers are welcome to dress in family-friendly costumes.

This event will proceed rain or shine.
