Tickets to this special event and other events during the year should be purchased in advance on the Strasburg Rail Road website, as they often sell out. When you arrive at the station, check in at the ticket booth.

Important: This particular Halloween-themed ride, The Legacy of Sleepy Hollow, is recommended by Strasburg Rail Road for children ages 8+ who will not be spooked by this creepy story and the scare actors who accompany the scenic train ride.
