Halloween Attractions in Vancouver

We love Halloween! What better celebration lets you carve pumpkins, dress up as anyone you like and enjoy haunted attractions! Yesterday we checked out two fun scary attractions; Potters House of Horrors and the Dunbar Haunted House! Find out about what we thought about them!

The 2008 Ghost Train in Stanley Park was pirate themed.Yesterday we has an amazing time exploring some of the fun things to do in Vancouver for Halloween. I am a big fan of Halloween and my better half and I researched some of the fun places to explore!

Last year we went on the Haunted Trolley Tour which I really enjoyed. Unfortunately it was the last year it ran for and now only runs on group reservations only. The actors were amazing with great stories about the intrigue and murder in Vancouver's history and we also got a chance to check out the Vancouver Police Museum (with tales not for the weak at heart!) We also went on the Ghost Train in Stanley Park and I hoped we could do it this year but we didn't have time last night!

Visitors to Surrey's Potters House of Horrors can enjoy many scary setups.So, we started off the evening by going to Surrey's Potters House of Horrors. It was very well decorated. I am a real scaredy cat when it comes to things jumping out of me but I braved it and really enjoyed the attraction. It was artfully done and well lit, and the actors just jumped from the set ups! The price of $13 was a little steep for two adults but I can see where it goes at there were tons of decorations and actors.The Dunbar Haunted House is amazing done with dozens of actors and setups to see.

On our way home my better half suggested we check out the Dunbar Haunted House a local house on that gets dressed up for the holidays - bonus, its free, and they take donations at the exit for a variety of charities. When we arrived I couldn't believe the amount of people there! It took a solid 45 minutes to get to the door and along the way several characters entertained us (the elephant man?). It was well worth the wait! It was so well done with amazingly realistic sets and the actors were extraordinarily professional and scary - the camouflage guy hiding in the tree surprised us the most! Well done!!!

We hope to check out a few more things before the big day on Saturday - hopefully you guys have fun too!
