Halloween enthusiasts of all ages can enjoy Spook-Track-ula at McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park, 7301 E. Indian Bend Road in Scottsdale, through Oct. 31.

In addition to festive seasonal decorations and trick-or-treating in the park, the highlight of the evening (nightly from 6 to 9:30 p.m.) is the Paradise & Pacific Railroad ride through an impressive area of frights — giant skeletons, man-eating spiders, an alien invasion, jack-o-lantern saguaro cacti, haunted graveyard, terrifying clowns and much more.

Tickets are $15 per person and the fee reserves a one-and-a-half-hour block of time from 6 to 7:30 p.m. or 8 to 9:30 p.m. (with a limited capacity of 650 per time slot.) Admission includes unlimited train and carousel rides. Children 2 years old and younger are free.

The Model Railroad Building is also decorated for the Halloween and open for viewing the park’s tiniest trains.

Food and drinks are available for purchase in Hartley’s General Store.

The 30-acre park is operated by the city of Scottsdale’s Parks & Recreation Department.
