Take an express trolley ride to the Darkside

As the fall chill fills the air, and on the darkest of nights, mournful cries of the abandoned dead are heard on the tracks at the Connecticut Trolley Museum in East Windsor. Come for a scare if you dare! 

During this haunted experience, ride vintage trolleys into the dark woods for a fear that you will never forget. Listen to the tale of yesteryear, as you learn of a hastily moved cemetery whose bodies were left behind—their angry souls seeking their revenge. Will you survive? 

The event will be held on Friday and Saturday nights in October. This experience is rated PG-13 and may be too intense for the squeamish. Hours are 7–9:30 p.m. (gates open at 6:15 p.m. for ticket sales). Admission is $20 per person and recommended for ages 16+.

Pumpkin Patch is a family fun-filled adventure riding a trolley car out to the pumpkin patch field and each child picking a free pumpkin. On return to the museum you can decorate the pumpkins, get your face painted, play in the corn box, enjoy the outside play area and the entire museum. Admission includes the Fire Truck Museum, housed on the same property as the Trolley Museum. 

The event will be held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in October. Pumpkin Patch will also be open Monday, Oct. 11 for Columbus Day. Check website for hours. Admission is $13 for adults/seniors and $11 for ages 2-12. Museum Members receive half off admission. All activities are included in admission.

The Connecticut Trolley Museum is located at 58 North Road (Rte. 140) in East Windsor. For more information or to purchase tickets please call 860-627-6540 or visit
