What to Expect on the Sullivans Express to PumpkinTown
Your journey starts at Central Station where you’ll board one of the five Sullivans Express trains operating on the PumpkinTown rail. Once aboard you’ll enjoy a Halloween train ride as it makes its way through the Enchanted Forest, filled with not-so-scary creatures doing some pretty unusual things.
Once the train clears the woods, you’ll head around the south side of Pumpkin Town making your way toward the train station. Before you reach the station, you’ll get a glimpse of some of the circus fun along with a couple of other surprises before you reach PumpkinTown.
