You’ll join special agents as they investigate a spaceship crash right in the middle of Stanley Park. In addition to the adventure on the train, you and your family can enjoy storytelling, face painting, crafts, presentations from the Stanley Park Ecology Society, costume contests, a haunted maze, a pumpkin patch, live music, and delicious food! Note – the daytime rides (11 am – 5 pm) are great for little ones as there are no live actors, so the train ride is a lot less spooky!
