Halloween in Vancouver

Halloween in Vancouver is one of the better times of the year as the tree lined streets become a bit scarier as we approach October 31. From ghostly activities to haunted houses,here are some of the Highlights of Halloween in Vancouver.

The Zombie Syndrome Theatre Adventure
an “interactive theatre adventure” that happens outside; this year, the production moves from Downtown Vancouver to Granville Island. Audience members find clues to stop a zombie plague, all while outrunning the walking dead!

Fright Nights at the PNE
The most popular Vancouver Halloween attraction is undoubtedly Fright Nights at the PNE. During Fright Nights, the PNE’s Playland amusement park becomes a thrill park, with themed rides, creepy attractions, and seven seriously haunted houses.

Pumpkin Patch at Richmond Country Farms
Want to run through a pumpkin patch for Halloween in Vancouver? Richmond Country Farm is located just 20 minutes south of Vancouver and is home to the area’s most famous pumpkin patch, plus a corn maze, animals, and more.

Stanley Park Ghost Train
The ride takes visitors past creative and (gently) spooky tableaux created by the amazing performers of Mortal Coil, which, though aimed at kids 10 and under, are fun for the whole family.

Vancouver Haunted Trolley Tours
Aimed at visitors 13 and older, Vancouver Haunted Trolley Tours explore Vancouver’s creepiest spots, including Mountain View Cemetery and the autopsy room of the Vancouver Police Museum.

The Valley Haunt
This haunted house in North Vancouver has evolved from a neighbourhood haunt to a popular Halloween attraction. Geared towards kids over 8 (and adults!), this year’s haunt has themed rooms, including “Valley View Cemetery,” “Dr. Dume’s Research Lab,” “CarnEVIL,” and “Zombie Casino.”

Glow in the Garden – Halloween at VanDusen Botanical Garden
NEW for 2016: Gorgeous VanDusen Botanical Garden–which famously puts on one of Vancouver’s best light displays every winter with its Festival of Lights–celebrates Halloween with the brand-new-for-2016 Glow in the Garden, a kid-friendly event that includes light decorations, “ghoulish music, and glowing pumpkin characters created by award-winning carvers Clive Cooper and Bruce Waugh.”

Haunted Village at the Burnaby Village Museum
The Burnaby Village Museum–an outdoor 1900s village–celebrates Halloween with a Witch’s Ball, Circus Sideshow, and carousel rides, ideal for kids 10 and under. Bring the kids in costume!

Halloweenie at the Granville Island Kids Market
One of the few free Vancouver Halloween Attractions for Kids, the annual Halloweenie party at Granville Island’s famous Kids Market includes a Halloween Balloon Hunt, crafts, games, and a free hotdog and beverage for kids who come in their costumes

Potter’s House of Horrors
The House of Horrors at 12530 72nd Avenue, Surrey is a professional presentation in a labyrinth like walk through of approximately 9,000 square feet. It consists of several rooms and displays connected together by dark twisty hallways.
