Halloween and Fall Train Rides in New Jersey and Pennsylvania

Halloween and hayrides go hand in hand, but if you really want to up your game this year, take a trip on a Halloween train! From spooky to scenic, these fall train rides offer a unique bit of fall fun for the whole family: Passengers can take a seat in a vintage caboose, travel through gorgeous fall foliage, visit a pumpkin patch, and even trick-or-treat onboard. After the ride, round out the day with autumn activities like corn mazes, crafts, and a costume party. 

Book your tickets now to ensure you don't miss out on one of these seasonal NJ railway adventures. We've even found one across the Delaware River in Pennsylvania. Most trains have limited capacity and other safety protocols this season, but be sure to click through to each train's individual website for details and requirements.

Check out our NJ Fall Fun Guide for even more seasonal family fun around the state, and sign up for our FREE newsletters to get the latest Halloween coverage and more delivered right to your inbox.
