Media Advisory - Unearthing a New Era of Fear



    Canada's biggest Halloween event is the all-new Halloween Haunt

    VAUGHAN, ON, Oct. 1 /CNW/ - Macabre clowns, mad patients and malevolent
miners add a fresh element of fear to Halloween Haunt at Canada's Wonderland.
Nine blood curdling mazes, 300 monsters, chilling rides and attractions
transform the park into a dark playground of terror. The Halloween Haunt gates
open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights in October, and Halloween, from
7:00 p.m. until midnight.
    Halloween Haunt brings petrifying thrills to four new mazes. The Clowns
at Midnight maze pushes the limit of terror with its cast of diabolical clowns
and other circus creatures who lure innocent victims into their deadly big
top. Vengeful werewolves and vexed miners inhabit the cursed paper mill and
abandoned mine shafts of the Slaughter Mill and Miners' Revenge mazes waiting
to cross paths with brave souls. The halls of The Asylum maze echo with the
cries of deranged inmates and doctors who pursue any who dare to cross the
threshold of their sinister home.
    Hoping to rest between mazes? The Whispering Pines Memorial Gardens Scare
Zone and CarnEVIL invites those who dare to discover the undead secrets of
evil lurking in the darkness.
    Back as an eternal favourite, the MTV Rockin' Scare enters heavy metal
hell with Total Request Dead and The Ozzburnes mazes while The Curse of Sleepy
Hollow continues to spread terror with Massacre Manor, Cornstalkers and Blood
Shed mazes.
    Chills turn to thrills during Halloween Haunt, as most major park rides
and attractions will be in full operation...under the cover of darkness.
