Make your weekend a spooktacular extravaganza with a ride on the Alyeska Halloween Train. The party begins aboard the Alaska Railroad as you travel between Anchorage and Girdwood in style, arriving to a buffet dinner at the Hotel Alyeska and continuing on to the zombie disco at the Daylodge.

The Alyeska Halloween Train is scheduled for a mid-afternoon departure from Anchorage to the Hotel Alyeska on Sunday, November 2; the package is for guests ages 21 and over and includes one-night stay, rail travel to Girdwood, buffet dinner, two drink vouchers, tickets to the Halloween Concert at the Daylodge, and return coach bus to Anchorage on Sunday, November 3.

Los Angeles-based Funky Hippeez will return to the Daylodge stage after a successful Halloween concert in 2012. Billed as ‘the world’s grooviest live disco and funk show’ complete with elaborate costumes and antics reminiscent of the late 70’s disco era, the band will pump out classic 70’s and 80’s disco hits with flair, soul and charisma.
