Last month we told you about Big Brothers Big Sisters’ plan to bring their popular annual Halloween haunt indoors for 2019.
Now after many days and weeks of work in bringing the finished product together inside a nearly 3000 square foot unit in the Town Centre, the folks with BBBS Haunted House invited me by for a sneak peek as they put on the final touches in preparation for opening later this week.
Inside is a series of scenes with no shortage of detail that when live and supported by actors are bound to be quite the thrill for those that can handle it!
While there I was able to take a small handful of pics to give a hint of some of the themes within...
Overall organizers have described the Haunted House as being a mix of current horror themes and classic favourites. Opening night is this Thursday, October 17 beginning at 6pm with additional dates up to October 30 (see below for full dates/hours). The first hour of each day is “no scare” hour except for Sunday which begins with two no scare hours. Cost to enter is $7, or $5 during no-scare times.
Its asked that visitors park in the Town Centre parkade (no charge during haunted house hours). You’ll be able to enter the Town Centre through the stairs at the parkade.
Both the General Store and Food Court will be open in the Town Centre during the Haunted House.
Dates are as follows:
- Thursday, Oct 17. 6-9pm

Overall local folks will be spoiled in the lead-up to Halloween this year between the BBBS Haunted House, a separate Haunted Forest setting up at Bry Mar Campground East of the City for three days beginning on Friday and Grim Acres Scare Away Cancer planning to open its doors later next week!
