MIAMI, Fla. (September 26, 2019) – Brightline is now boarding for a brand new Halloween experience sure to delight your little monster. Included with the purchase of a Brightline ticket, on October 19, 20, 26, and 27, guests can travel from the Fort Lauderdale Brightline Station on the Halloween Trick-or-Train heading south to Trainsylvania (a.k.a. Miami!)
Guests will be greeted at the Fort Lauderdale station by costumed characters and will enjoy a costume dress-up photo opp and character interaction, and be directed to board the train. While on the train, children will enjoy a hilarious interactive show with performers from the Florida Children's Theatre.
Upon arrival to Virgin MiamiCentral, guests will be guided by the performers to a play area in Central Fare marketplace that will be transformed into Trainsylvania where families can explore and participate in a range of activities including Halloween crafts, games, LEGO challenges, and other fun surprises! The experience also includes a complimentary kids meal by HOUSE OF MAC.
Families will then reboard the train and head back to Fort Lauderdale for another fun performance by the Florida Children's Theatre. When guests arrive in-station kids will receive a trick-or-treat bag as a sweet finale. Allergy-friendly treats available upon request. This entertaining afternoon is not intended to be scary; just good fun for the entire family.
“We are thrilled to welcome our riders this Halloween season to a fun, engaging family-friendly experience at the MiamiCentral station,” said Johanna Rojas, Brightline's Vice President of Marketing. “We are proud to continue collaborating with local partners, like the Florida Children's Theatre, to offer our South Florida families unique and interactive events year-round.”
Tickets will range between $15-20 depending on the segment. Kids (12 and under) are half off.
