All children wearing Halloween costumes will ride for free onboard the Ripley’s Red Sightseeing Trains Saturday October 29 and Sunday October 30. Each child must be accompanied by a parent, each of whom will ride for half price. In addition, all trick-or-treaters will be given free candy at various stops along the seven mile sightseeing route. The event will take place at all of Ripley’s Red Sightseeing Trains locations.
. In addition to the regularly scheduled Ghost Train Adventure, Ripley’s will offer the S.I.N. (Safety in Numbers) Tour, a Walking Ghost Adventure, and a book signing by noted Florida author David Lapham.
The Ghost Train Adventure tours (the regular 90 minute paranormal investigation which takes guests through the city and into the haunted Ripley’s Castle Warden) begin at 7:15 p.m. all three evenings. The S.I.N. ghost train tour will be offered at various times beginning at 6:45 p.m. each of the three evenings. This 75 minute interactive paranormal investigation takes guests to the old Fairbanks Plantation (the current location of the forthcoming St. Augustine Haunted History Museum) and to the ancient Indian burial grounds at the Fountain of Youth. There will also be free trick-or-treat candy for the kids and Family Fun Walking Ghost Tours all three evenings beginning at 6:00 p.m.
The ghosts of St. Augustine always seem to bring author David Lapham back to this Ancient City. His first two books Ghosts of St. Augustine and Ancient City Hauntings focused entirely on the this city’s paranormal tales, while his latest release Ghosthunting Florida chronicles hauntings throughout the Sunshine State. Lapham will be signing copies Tuesday October 25 beginning at 6:00 p.m.
