Bushkill Park gears up for its Halloween express

EASTON, Pa. - It's been a long haul for Bushkill Park near Easton. Floodwaters have kept the park closed since 2006, but not any longer and just in time for fall.

"Yesterday for the first time we have electric in our food stand, and in the game stands," said owner Neal Feahnel.

For the next five weekends until Halloween, Bushkill Park becomes 'booshkill park' and it's all aboard the Halloween express.

A train ride offers an extra treat for kids 12 and younger.

"It goes down to the pumpkin patch and they will all get a pumpkin," Feahnel said.

No Halloween park would be complete without a graveyard but this graveyard is special because it's part of a scavenger hunt.

"They have to find certain pieces through the park and then they get those and get a free cotton candy," Feahnel said.

There's all kinds of entertainment. Games, a fun house and every 45 minutes there's even a magic show.

There's also a truly chilling haunted maze.

"There is still some blood and guts because it is halloween," Feahnel said.

Inside Domore's Dungeon your senses will be heightened. There's strange sounds, you're completely in the dark, and frankly you'll be terrified because there's strange things around every corner.

"We have a long way to go but it is progress and as long as we are moving forward, and we're not standing still," Feahnel said.

It costs $15 to get in to Bushkill Park but if you mention that you saw the story on 69 news they will discount $2.
