This Weekend Experience The Scariest Ride Of Your Life On Freeport’s 36 Ton “Train of Terror”

Freeport, Illinois — Nothing says fear, fright, fun and fall in Freeport like a ride on a 36 ton 1912 Heisler “train of terror” steam locomotive that takes you through a frightful October journey of a lifetime.

The train of terror embarks upon a surreal realm haunted by ghosts, ghouls, vampires, zombies and other pillars of the un-dead community. Through the years, many terrors have been visited upon the passengers of this train.

Is your nightmare an insane killer with a bloody machete and flaming torch? Perhaps it’s a ghost ship whose pirate crew barrages you with cannon fire. Maybe it’s imprisoned lost souls laboring away in an eternity of despair. All these have been seen in past years.

What does this year hold for the unwary traveler? Ride the train and find out… if you dare.
