The Lost Railroad, Lost in Time.
Search for the legend of an old Carnival train that derailed off its tracks in the late 1800's, just south of the little town of Williston, Florida during a terrible storm. There is documented history of the storm that came in off the Gulf and ravaged the area, but no recorded history, or even mentions of the wreck. When the townspeople came out the next morning it had completely disappeared. Or did it? Come out to the
arm and find the Lost Railroad!
Once you've discovered the Lost Railroad you'll find plenty of things to do, if your brave enough. All 4 complete Haunts, additional Scare Zones, Bad Apple ride, and the scary movie on the giant movie screen are included with admission. PLEASE read ALL WARNINGS prior to registration!
