Pumpkin Patch Trolley & Rails to the Darkside

EAST WINDSOR, CONN., September 1st, 2023 The Connecticut Trolley Museum presents Pumpkin Patch Trolley & Rails to the Darkside.  These two fundraising events are extremely important to funding the museum’s operations.

As the fall chill fills the air, on the darkest of nights, mournful cries of the abandoned dead are heard on the tracks at the Connecticut Trolley Museum. 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. Come for a scare if you dare…the next trolley ride is an express to the Darkside! During this three-part haunted experience, ride vintage trolleys into the dark woods for a fear that you will never forget, visit the vortex tunnel if you dare & end your experience in the Visitor Center if you can handle the unforeseen horror of death. New this year the Museum has partnered with Curioporium LLC. Curioporium seeks to control the ethereal energy and use it to open the gates for the foolhardy or the fearless to venture into the realm of the forsaken, the fallen, and the cursed. Beware, this spectral force is unpredictable and volatile. Brace yourself for unimaginable horror, for who can fathom the blood-curdling terror about to seep into our world? The event will be held on Friday and Saturday nights starting September 29th.  This experience is rated PG-13 and may be too intense for the squeamish. Hours are 7pm-10pm (gates open at 6:30pm for ticket sales), tickets must be purchased at www.ct-trolley.org. Admission is $30 per person and recommended for ages 16+.

Pumpkin Patch Trolley is a family fun filled adventure where you ride on a trolley car out to the pumpkin patch field and each child can pick out a FREE sugar-sized Pumpkin. Additionally, when you return back to the museum campus you can decorate the pumpkins, play in the corn box, enjoy the outside harvest play area, the museum exhibits and displays. Admission also includes the Fire Truck Museum which is located on the Trolley Museum campus. The event will be held on Saturday and Sunday starting September 30th. Visit www.ct-trolley.org for hours of operation and to purchase tickets. Pumpkin Patch will also be open Monday, Oct. 9th for Columbus Day.
