The Ghost Train 

Spine-tingling ghouls and ghostly goings-on in the dark – will you be brave enough to board the Ghost Train?

About the Ghost Train

The Ghost Train was a much-loved fairground staple in the 1950s and 60s, and it’s no less popular today at Carters. Board your train and set off on a winding journey through ghostly apparitions and frightful thrills in the dark, dark realm of the Ghost Train.


Who can ride, and what does it cost?

The Ghost Train is suitable for any age (although it’s scary and not suitable for small babies) and costs 5 tokens per person.

Coronavirus update

Following the latest advice from the UK government and Public Health England, we are reviewing our upcoming 2020 tour dates. We’re very disappointed that we can’t bring the fun of the fair to you all but we hope to see you soon in 2020 when things settle down.

We will be monitoring the situation and we will update you weekly on our social media, or as soon as the situation changes. You can also find the latest information about our 2020 tour in our blog post which we will keep updated.

Thanks for all your patience while we work through these unpredictable times.

Joby, Georgina and the Carters Team.
