Tricks And Treats At The Crucible

There is a rumor going around that if you hang out at The Crucible after dark, you might just catch a ghost passing through our haunted train caboose. We can't promise you will have any ghostly encounters on Halloween night, but we do promise to have some of the tastiest chocolate around.
