All You Fear is Here

Halloween Haunt unveils new screams this Friday

VAUGHAN, ON, Sept. 29, 2011 /CNW/ - Ghastly creatures, misty London alleyways, and 3 haunting live shows will be unveiled at Canada's largest Halloween event; Halloween Haunt. With ten chilling mazes, over 500 monsters, and blood pumping rides in the dark; Canada's Wonderland transforms into a dark playground of terror. Halloween Haunt gates open this Friday September 30 with the event continuing every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night in October, plus Halloween night from 7:00 p.m. until midnight.

A gruesome new maze and 3 live shows set the stage for the most horrifying Halloween Haunt yet. In Terror of London, guests will be transported to 1888 London through a maze of alleyways that follow the path of Jack the Ripper in the Whitechapel District. The discovery of five bloody victims, and no hope of catching the culprit, will leave guests paralyzed with fear.

3 new shows will premier at Halloween Haunt that will stretch the imagination of what is possible.  Beyond the Grave will take guests on a trip to the other side as Mysterion the Mind Reader delves into the world of the supernatural while Skeleton Crew, a high action cirque style spectacle, will dazzle the senses. The evening will come to a finale when the unthinkable happens in The Hanging.

Halloween Haunt is designed to frighten and therefore not recommended for children. Most major park rides and attractions will be in operation. Guests are not permitted to attend the event in costume.  For more information on how to get Halloween Haunt tickets or other event information, please log onto our Haunt website:
