Looking for some great spooky family fun this Halloween? Here is our list of favorite local Haunts that are sure to entertain and frighten!
1. Fright Nights at Playland (Oct. 17-31): What are you Afraid of? This year Fright Nights is going truly fearful tapping into your most frightening phobias. Last year they showcased a Glow in the Dark Haunted Circus Clown House that was truly frightening (just ask our Admin Assistant Rosa why She wont be going back this year!) Along with all the classic rides and prices varying between $28-33 it is sure to be enjoyed by many. (Word of caution while children are allowed it is not reccomended for those 12 yrs and younger or those with heart conditions) Fright Nights at Playland 2012
2. Haunted Vancouver Trolley Tour (Oct. 19-31): Hop on board an old-fashioned trolley for a narrated tour of Vancouver’s scariest sites, including the city’s oldest cemetery and the morgue. As the night falls and shadows begin to appear, you will be whisked away by Trolley where you will see streets and homes, which seem normal, but if you look and listen close enough you will hear echoes of murders and other devastating events.

3. Haunted Village at Burnaby Village Museum (Oct. 26-28): Come have fun with monsters, vampires and mummies. There’s trick-or-treating for the children and unlimited carousel rides for all. Gravediggers, trolls and witches wander about as you walk through the recreated 1920s village after dark. You can even get measured for your own coffin. This is fantastic vintage Halloween for young and old. Haunted Village
4. The Great Big Boo (Oct. 20-21): This Halloween musical stage show, with lots of dancing and singing, is very kid-friendly, and a great way to start off the Halloween season. Join Vinnie the Vampire, Priscilla the Princess and the rest of the Boo Alley gang as they sing and dance their way through The Great Big Boo!’s madcap adventures! Put on your most Boo-tiful costume and trick-or-treat with the stars of the show! The Great Big Boo Vancouver
5. Stanley Park Ghost Train (Oct. 5-31): Every night this miniature train brings passengers deep into the forests of 1,000-acre Stanley Park for a chilling production of Scary Fairy Tales. The train has left the station and there’s no turning back! You’re in the deep dark woods now! Might as well just bite the apple, hang on to your beanstalk and spot as many golden eggs as you can. We love this event because it is entertaining for children and adults alike, and although the Haunted Petting Zoo is gone it is still a must see!
