Trick-or-Treating: Enchanted Tracks (+ giveaway)

One of Greenville’s top events for safe trick-or-treating in October is the annual Enchanted Tracks at the Pavilion. Now, I’m a little embarrassed to admit this, since I write this blog and I love Greenville Rec’s events, but I’ve never personally been to Enchanted Tracks (yet!). Our Kidding Around Greenville Facebook fans though came to the rescue with lots of great information on why Enchanted Tracks is one of the top spots for trick-or-treating in Upstate SC.

Not only will I be giving you the inside scoop on this annual Greenville Halloween event, but one of you will win a family 4-pack of tickets to Enchanted Tracks for the night of your choice!

The Inside Scoop on Enchanted Tracks

We asked other Greenville parents what they thought about Enchanted Tracks and the answers started coming in quickly! Here are some of the comments that they had about this annual trick-or-treating event:

Jennifer says, “Enchanted Tracks is one of our favorite events! My kids love riding George at night. Trick or treating in the forest is fun, and so are the games. If you participate in the costume contests, be prepared to wait. It takes a while to put lots of cute kids on stage for judging.

My advice is to get there early to jump & play games, then save your trick or treating & train ride for once it gets dark much more fun in the dark. I also remember the past few years when you arrive they assign you a time for your train ride.”

Nichole says, “My son was only one last year when we went with friends, but he liked riding the train and the little maze. The characters in the forest for trick or treating were fun and there were bounce houses and little games to play with prizes for playing. There was a costume contest too.”

Lynn says, “We took our grandchildren last year and their favorite part was the train ride! Kids love trains. They also held a dress up contest for the different age groups–fun for all.”

Christi says, “My kids love trick or treating in the Enchanted Forest that is full of storybook characters, like Shrek, Snow White and Robin Hood. Of course they also really enjoy riding George the Train!”

Melissa says, “We love the trick or treating in the Enchanted forest with all the story book characters. We also love riding George the train and seeing the fun Halloween lights.”

And several readers asked “Where is this? We’ve never heard about it!”

    If you want to ride George the train (he’s open most years) then plan to get there early. They’ve tried lots of strategies for accommodating riders, but it usually ends up that if you get there early, you can get a ride in, but otherwise, you’ll probably have to come back another day to redeem that activity on your ticket.
