One of the more festive lines in the country is ringing in the season of haunts with a Halloween train ride that promises booze, music and the kind of night that ends in luxury.

Millions are undoubtedly preparing for haunted hayrides, scary soirees or good ol’ fashioned ambles around the neighborhood that end with a bucket of sugary treats.  

Up in the northern part of the country, travelers can throw some cash at an unforgettable romp through the landscape aboard the Alaska Railroad.

The line’s Facebook page announced the immersive experience that even includes a concert from Lez Zeppelin:

What's scarier than ghosts and goblins on Halloween? Finding yourself without any plans! Fortunately, we've teamed up...

If the Alaska Railroad sounds familiar to those of you outside the northern state, perhaps you have heard of its wildly popular Great Alaska Beer Train, featured in various Dude Like Hella YouTube videos:

Sadly, the summer tour — complete with beer — is closed for the season. The last brew ride of the year was earlier this month.

However, you get an idea of the kind of accommodations you can expect aboard Alaska’s comfortable trains.

Which brings us to October 31 and an event that seems to still have openings.

The Alyeska Halloween Train is thanks to a collaboration between Alaska Railroad Vacations and Alyeska Resort.

According to the resort’s page, the package runs $249 per person, “based on double occupancy.” That sounds expensive, but you are getting a wealth of entertainment.

The website states you can expect the following: “Train ride from Anchorage with motorcoach return on Sunday; one night accommodations; $40 Dining Credit; Ticket to the Lez Zeppelin concert at the Daylodge; and two drink vouchers per adult.”

But let’s say that you strike out for the Halloween party.

You can still nab tickets for the upcoming holiday festivities promised by Alaska Railroad.

Yes, we know it's not even Halloween yet... but Holiday Train tickets are already selling fast. Get yours before they're gone:

According to the website, holiday trains leave the station on Saturdays, December 5 and 12 this year.

Those particular voyages will include “a coloring contest, holiday carolers, a magician, door prizes and even a visit from the jolly old elf himself: Santa Claus!”

It’s a bit unfair, but Alaska is now able to boast incredible beauty, lush landscapes and some truly brilliant ways to enjoy it all.
