Celebrate Halloween at the Tennessee Valley Railroad

We are headed back to the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum in Chattanooga, TN next weekend.  We’ve gone twice before, earlier this year at last May, to attend Day Out with Thomas.  Bryson loves all things trains, so I’m excited to take him on the Halloween Eerie Express and create some fun memories.

The Halloween Eerie Express is designed with young children in mind and packed with fun activities.  Riders will board the Eerie Express and depart from Grand Junction Station.  They’ll disembark at the Fun House where they’ll enjoy 2,000 square feet of games and themed rooms.  Afterwards, they’ll enjoy a final ride back to Grand Junction Station.  The event lasts a little over an hour an a half.  Kids will be entertained throughout the Fun House and train ride, but will not be scared.

Watch the embedded video below for an idea of what you can expect.  If you are reading via e-mail or feed, you may need to click over to see the video.
