Kids ages 3 -11 can participate in the newly expanded trick-or-treating experience available through Ghost Town and extending all the way to Mission Row. During trick-or-treating, kids will interact with an array of spooky but friendly Shopkeepers as little ones have the opportunity to show-off their festive Halloween costumes. In Ghost Town, Stanley Scarecrow has opened the Livery Stable for guests of all ages to get close and personal with the Creepy Critters of Calico.
Creepy Critters Of Calico
At the Livery stable there are lots of interactive and sensory things to touch. My daughter got kisses from a rat, looked at a bearded dragon, pet a tarantula, listened and held cockroaches and touched mealworms. Teddie the horse is also painted to look like a skele-horse and there is a turtle maze in the hay bales!
