Haunted Tram Rides & Children’s Haunted House
October 25, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 10:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 4:00 pm, repeating until October 26, 2019
Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park and the Friends of Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park are hosting their annual Haunted Tram Rides event to spook, scare, and delight every ghoul and goblin who dares to venture on the haunted tram. Pepper Creek Trail will transform at dusk into a trail of haunting scenarios created by local groups and businesses. Scheduled for the evenings of Friday, October 25 and Saturday, October 26, 2019, the event will begin at 6:00 PM each evening and run until 10:00 PM.
This will be the sixteenth year the Friends of Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park will host the Haunted Tram Rides event which has attracted thousands of visitors each night. The tram will take patrons down and back on the three-quarter-mile Tram Road, where scare experts will thrill and fright along the way. In addition to the Haunted Tram Rides, the event includes family fun such as Halloween costume contests, a fun slide, and refreshments. The suggested donation for the tram ride is $5.00 for adults (age 13 and over) and $3.00 for children up to age 12. Weird & Wicked Oz, based on the Wizard of Oz, is the theme of this year’s Haunted House from 4:00 PM until 10:00 PM in the Florida Room. The donation for admission to the Haunted House is $2.00 per person.
The Halloween Costume Contests will be held both evenings. Children should arrive to register in the Visitor Center between 6:30 and 7:00 PM. Contests will begin at 7:00 pm with children divided into three age groups. Prizes will be given for Cutest, Scariest and Most Creative Costumes.
