Alaska Railroad offered rides on the Blues Train not so long ago, and now the railroad is teaming up with Alyeska to offer a Halloween-themed ride on the rails.
The ride includes a zombie costume contest and two drink tickets, and once in Girdwood there will be a disco dance party with live music by the Funkkee Hippeez, dinner and hotel room at Alyeska. The Halloween Train departs 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27, from the Anchorage Downtown Depot, but organizers ask riders to check in an hour early. They also want to be able to ID riders as the check in (21 and older) and ask that costumed attendees finish their makeup or wait to put on their masks until afterward.
Tickets are $249 and include a bus ride back to Anchorage.
