Special Events


The eight-minute spook-ride through the woods of Roethke Park features scary skits performed by local volunteers. More than 13 sites and 60 people will wait to surprise night riders as they fly along the wooded, three-quarters of a mile track through the 72-acre park in the red Roethke Express. Both the haunted house and the train ride are family-oriented activities.

A haunted house also serves to entertain visitors, and concessions are provided from local vendors Woody’s Hot Dogs, Bayou Billy and What’s Poppin Kettle Corn. Roethke Park is located at 400 Leddy Road in Thomas Township. CASH ONLY!
