On Fridays, the trolley will run from 6 to 10 PM and on Saturdays, 1 to 10 PM. The full loop will take around 25 minutes. The trolley will be decked out in Halloween lights and decorations to get you in the Halloween spirit. The trolley loop will begin at the movie theater parking lot and ends at the ivy ridge train station. Sponsored stops along the way include:Tubby Robot Ice Cream Factory, Taqueria Amor, Lucky’s Last Chance, La Roca, and Lincoln MIll Haunted House. Hop on the trolley for dinner before or after visiting the haunted house! Or - just ride the trolley for a fun trip wherever you need to go.
  • The Lincoln Mill Haunted House is open on weekends throughout the Halloween season, as well as on select Thursdays and Sundays. This haunted house features live actors, sets and props for a full spook-tacular experience.

Saturday afternoons, Lincoln Mill will host their lights on haunt. There will be no scare actors, the lights will be turned on in the trail, and there is an immersive scavenger hunt throughout the trial.This feature is perfect for families who do not enjoy being spooked but still want to attend Halloween festivities.
