Visitors to the Terror Train 6077 in Capreol can now experience a new dimension to the haunt. 

The Terror Train is launching its new Fear App, which will include trivia and entertainment. 

Fear App is an augmented reality technology developed specifically for the haunt industry created by Jake Stommen with support from local author Mat Del Papa.

“Upon entering the attraction, your device comes to life in a totally unique perspective,” said Jake Stommen, creator of Fear App. “Audio plays, the light on your phone turns on, agonizing moans creep closer and closer then — total darkness.

“After a terrifying moment alone in the dark, the light on the phone begins to strobe violently, a twitching horde of zombies thrusts toward them, and a blinding bolt of lightning crashes down. They manage to survive the chaos of the first encounter, but the madness continues throughout in a precisely choreographed show driven entirely by your location.”
“We are excited to be launching this new app on the weekend to add a new enhancement to the Terror Train experience,” said Derek Young, operations manager. Northern Ontario Railroad Museum and Heritage Centre.

“Guests to the Terror Train will be challenged to experience a real ghost town like Sellwood and discover Creepy Capreol’s history coming to life in the palm of their hand.”
The Terror Train is recommended for those ages 13 and older. General admission tickets are $13 each and can be purchased in person or online at This is an outdoor attraction, so dress accordingly. 

In the event of rain, advance tickets will be honoured for another night. Terror Trains run from 7-10 p.m., Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights until Oct. 27 with a special Devil’s Night on Oct. 30 at 26 Bloor St. in Capreol.
