The Community of Madrid extends the visits to the Chamberí Metro Ghost Station by one more day to celebrate Halloween
The Community of Madrid is extending visits to the Chamberí Metro station, known as Estación Fantasma (Ghost Station), for an extra day to celebrate Halloween. Thus, the space, specially decorated for the occasion, will continue to be open to the public on 1 November, although on that date, there will be no actors.
To attend this activity, you need to register through museosmetromadrid.es, as capacity is limited. Opening hours will be from 10 am to 2 pm and from 4 pm to 9 pm. The visit is free of charge and is recommended for visitors over 12 years old.
This initiative has been underway since 27 October. Up to and including the 31st, the visits are being dramatised and more than 2,000 people are taking part in them.
This year, the main theme of this fun activity has been the story of a last passenger who was trapped at the Chamberí stop on the day it closed its doors for good in 1966. When this mysterious character begins to suspect that his confinement has been malicious, he resurrects old legends that will be developed and seen along the tour, from the entrance to the platform.
During the more than 40 years that Chamberí station remained closed, there were many stories and tales that spoke, for example, of the presence of ghosts and terrifying characters in this space. All these anecdotes have been brought back this year for fans of this topic.
This initiative involves the participation of six actors who wander around the station, decorated for the occasion, disguised as different creatures inspired by literary works and scary tales.
