Took the Halloween train last night. Had the best time! The team really went all out. The BBQ they provide was really good and I totally recommend the zombie hayride!

I love the train ride through the orange groves. I don't understand the hour layover in Santa Paula. The town doesn't cater to tourists. It doesn't even cater to Americans. The yogurt shop we visited was gross.
