Halloween Spook-Track-ula in Scottsdale is a family friendly spooky event at McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park, and we took a morning to see the decor and set up!
You’ll see a little bit of everything from aliens to creepy clowns on the train ride. There are also some photo ops to enjoy. Keep in mind that the official event takes place in the evening, so there will be things glowing, and a light tunnel.
Our kids weren’t crazy about the decor, but we’re not huge in to Halloween. Everything is tame compared to other Halloween scary events, but a few things may frighten young kids. We suggest visiting during the day to take a look, and then deciding if a night time ride is of interest.
You can get a glimpse of more of the decor by viewing this reel on Instagram.
