Things are bigger and scarier in Texas but definitely kid-friendly.

The Runaway Fright Train in the Historic Jefferson Railway departs from the Haunted Depot in Downtown Jefferson each Friday and Saturday through Oct. 29th.

Dress in costume to get free candy when you ride the train. Admission is only $15 on Friday and $16.50 on Saturday. The 40 minute trip along the Big Cypress Bayou features ghostly spirits emerging from the swamp lands of East Texas.
