This was my first time going here and i went through all three parts. If you get there early the line wait isnt horrible but i say the money and the wait was definetly worth it! Lots of things jump out at you and it is very dark and creepy in many rooms. The atmosphere was very different. It was awsome :)
This place has gone downhill

Every year you go through a haunted train and then get on a moving haunted train to walk through and ride. Through the years there's less actors. This year they added a tent haunted house and include that in the admission instead of the moving train. The moving train is now extra which defeats the whole purpose of terror on the railroad. A big disappointment and not worth the money anymore.
It was a lot of Fun!

I was really pleased with my tour of Terror on the Railroad. It is actually two events in one. The first attraction is a spooky ride on a real vintage train car. As the train went down the tracks, customers walked through, from car-to-car. Along the way, there were a few scares, too!

The second attraction is set up in a stationary train, with themed haunted house scenes set up in each car. My personal favorites were the devil worshiper room, the upside down room and the creepy girl’s bedroom.

As for those people who submitted other reviews complaining about how long they had to wait in line… Most of the better attractions in the state DO have long lines, so what you said is actually a compliment. The crappy events are the ones with no customers in the queue. The fact that this event had a line three hours long implies that they must have a good reputation and quite a customer following.

In summary, this event is always fun to go through. Every year, it keeps getting better and better. I noticed that this year, they added custom soundtracks playing in each scene. That was a nice touch. The costumes are nice and they have some great airbrush make-up. I highly recommend you check it out, for a creepy fun time!

This is a great community event. I look forward to what they have for us in the future!

After reading and hearing about this attraction I was excited to see what all the fuss was about. Sadly this haunted train did not live up to the hype. The first issue was the wait time... There are several points where you are expected to wait for long periods of time. The initial wait was nearly three hours. This is followed by a 15 minute wait to begin the first part of the attraction. Once you complete the first train there is another wait of approximately 30 minutes. The next, and in my opinion, the biggest problem was the acting. Many of the employees seemed angry that they had to be there. There were also several of them standing around or just sitting as you walk through the train.

The wait is long. There was a line to for tickets. A line to get into a train car where you have to sit to wait to get into another train car only to have to wait to go into another train car until you reach the attraction. The train cars are not heated.

The atmosphere was weak and the actors, despite their best efforts, were boring and seemed unenthused. You could hear several of the complain. There was also a lot of down time as you walk through the trains.

If you plan on going make sure you give yourself at least three hours.

I JUST got back from the train. Some friends and I attended last year and had a great experience and decided it was a must to go back this year. After wait for FOUR hours the excitement surely died down. By the time we got to the "haunted" part of the train we were so tired, bored and angry that it wasn't even fun. It seemed as though half the staff had gone home and really didn't care if we got our money's worth. There were people literally falling asleep while waiting in the train cars. I just wanted it to be over before we even entered the haunted car. I don't think I will be back next year. I"m pissed and super annoyed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
