The unfortunate untold story...
When the Hartford and Springfield Street Railway was planning its branchline from Warehouse Point to Rockville, a small cemetery near Newberry Road stood in the way of a straight-as-an-arrow trolley line. Before construction started, the cemetery was relocated to a spot of dry land along Route 140 near the tracks. The air around the cemetery always had a chill after the move and the locals kept away, letting Mother Nature take over.

Years later as the trolley museum began planning for the Visitor Center, workers began surveying the land and found the gravestones from the old cemetery hidden in the woods. Oddly enough, further inspection found that there were only headstones... no coffins or remains were in the earth.

Today, during the darkest of the nights, the mournful cries of the abandoned dead are heard around old Newberry Road and the trolley museum's Newberry Siding. Do you dare ride to the darkside? Email Haunt Owner

Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified Blast Experience

    We got the chance of visiting the Rails to the Darkside and we had a blast. The entire theme was spooky. The interior of the museum looks very haunted with strange noises and screams. Actors appear like ghosts from somewhere or the other and look as if they are real ghosts. And finally, we get a ride in complete darkness in rails e where creepy zombies are sure to welcome and scare you off your breath. Overall, a very ver very spooky place.

  • Email Verified Kids Fun Place

    I went here with my kids and we all enjoyed it to the fullest. The entire set up was fun filled and we loved the whole theme. The trolley ride was awesome with the Zombie fighter. The entire atmosphere was nice and the actors were good enough at scaring us all. Even the kids had lots of fun here. The walk through the haunted museum was too scary and looked really creepy. It’s rated PG-13 and is not recommended for young children.

  • Very Scary and a lot of fun!

    Every part of this attraction was so scary! We had a great time. Definitely not for small kids, but a great time for adults! Go early to avoid a long line.

  • This place takes it way to far.

    Last year the lady sitting next to me pissed her pants. For15 bucks I got a whole lot more scare than 6 flags. DOD NOT BRING LITTLE KIDS these people aren't happy unless you get really scared, upto threatening you with a live cattle-prod. Totally worth it if you think youve see everything.
