SACRAMENTO, Calif., OAKDALE, Calif. & WILLITS, Calif., Aug. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- This fall, Zombie Train: Evacuation is debuting on three different Northern California rail lines: the Sacramento RiverTrain, the Sierra DinnerTrain, and the Skunk Train. While trains have always been a beloved part of California's history, nothing brings people together like a common, undead enemy.

The reimagined 40-minute train ride takes its passengers through a post-apocalyptic world desolated by infection and overrun by zombies. The Zombie Train will be evacuating passengers on a quest for safety; however, safety may be hard to find with zombie encounters on and off the train.

"We are excited to debut Zombie Train: Evacuation on all three of our trains this year," said Chris Hart, president of the tourism division of Sierra Railroad. "We've developed the Zombie Train franchise over the past few years, and this year, we've overhauled the experience to offer families of Northern California a chance to experience train travel in an exciting and unexpected way."

Zombie Train: Evacuation offers a mix of special effects, live-action adventure, and the main attraction—zombies! At $35 for adults and $25 for children ages 2-12, this experience is family friendly—we trust your discretion as to whether your child is prepared for slightly spooky zombie encounters. Plus, there is a limited number of tickets available to become part of the action with your very own zombie makeover.

On which side will you be when the evacuation comes? For more information, ticketing, and event dates, please go to and select your departure location.  

For media professionals interested in covering the train, a limited quantity of media passes is available.

Sacramento RiverTrain: Providing a unique venue for family entertainment and excursions, the Sacramento RiverTrain offers year-round experiences sure to animate the kid in all of us.

Sierra DinnerTrain: Operating the 3rd oldest rail line in North America, the Sierra DinnerTrain meanders through the countryside, seemingly unspoiled by time. A choice location for an abundant film legacy, this railroad hosts year-round experiences for train-lovers of all ages.

Skunk Train: Originally built as a logging railroad in 1885, the Skunk Train travels 40 miles of railroad through California's quintessential redwood forests. In its 130th year of service you are invited to experience the Skunk Train in a new, undead way.
