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 haunted experience, ride vintage trolleys into the dark woods for a fear that you will never forget, visit the vortex tunnel if you dare and end your experience in the Visitor Center if you can handle the unforseen horror of death.

New for 2023, the Trolley 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.
