Please leave your pets at home, since most of these attractions do not allow animals. Certified service animals are permitted. If we have missed your favourite Halloween activity, let us know.


COVID-19 has brought many challenges to all of us and continue to do so. Many Halloween events have been modified to ensure that your health and safety is a top concern.

Unfortunately several Halloween events have been cancelled again this year. The events that remain open are limiting their capacity and most require advance tickets. We are updating the information as soon as it is available to us. Please always remember to check before you go to make sure it is still open.

Do not attend any event if you are feeling ill. Make sure to follow the directional signs, physical distance 6 feet/ 2 metres, wear a mask, and clean hands often.
