What is the purpose of the Haunted Train Ride?

The Haunted Train Ride is a fundraiser as well as a community event that is sponsored by Norfolk Community League and Norfolk Lions. All proceeds go back into the community via grants that are administered through Norfolk Community League and Norfolk Lions. In the past, Norfolk schools, the library, Stony Brook, the food pantry, and the Senior Center (just to name a few), have all benefited by funds raised by the Haunted Train Ride.

Why can't you sell more tickets?

The people that you see in the woods, loading the trains, working the cafe, acting in the Ghoul bus, and everyone else who is lending a hand are all volunteers. Even after the last person has ridden the train there is still work to be done, often well past 10:00pm. While being in the woods and scaring people on the train is super-fun, it is also exhausting! It's hard being "in character" every time the train goes by. It's too much to ask people to stay out in the woods for longer than the five plus hours they already do.


Can you do the event for an additional night?

It takes over 100 volunteers to make this event happen and often it is a struggle to get enough volunteers to keep things running safely and smoothly for even one night. It would be very difficult to get another group of volunteers for an additional evening. The event takes place on someone's private property and set up begins a few days before and clean up lasts until the next day. They need their property back in order to run their business on Monday morning.

Tickets sold out each night in minutes. I had a better chance of getting a paper ticket at the library. Can we go back to that?

Selling the tickets online within minutes would be the equivalent of selling a paper ticket to every person standing in line all at the same time, but without the hassle of waiting in line and inconveniencing library patrons and staff and causing a traffic jam on Liberty Lane.

How are we suppose to get tickets if it sells out within minutes?

There are 1700 tickets sold. Unfortunately not everyone will get a ticket. We would love it if everyone who wanted to go could get a ticket but it's just not possible (see 1&2 above). As the event draws near, many families are no longer able to attend and will sell their tickets. Keep an eye on social media.

I never received my tickets? 

All tickets were sent electronically to the email address used during registration. You should have instantly received an email confirming your purchase including a PDF attachment of the tickets. Check your Junk/SPAM folder as well and if you still did not receive them please let us know. 

Thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm for the Haunted Train Ride! We have taken your comments and feedback into consideration. Although the train has been running for 19 years, it is a continuous process of improvement.
