* Dates pending for 2023-24
Location: Vernon, British Columbia

Each October since 2013, this month-long Halloween event near Vernon ratchets up the horror with multiple tours, each geared for nightmarish fun.  

This year’s theme is still TBD but you can bet the theatrical performances will be over the top!

Have a look at the themes from 2023, below, to get a sense of what to expect at this year's event.

The First Maze: Classics from the Crypts

This maze will get your blood pumping by re-creating the classic horror stories we grew up with but with a dark twist.

Classics from the Crypt features the blood-sucking vampire Dracula in his haunted castle, the creepy amphibious humanoid Creature of the Black Lagoon, the menacing Wolfman, who devours animals, people, and corpses at night but returns to his human form by day, Frankenstein and his monster - and many more classic folklore characters.

The Second Maze: Nightmare Next Door

A more modern terror will bring your childhood nightmares to life featuring 1980’s classic neighbourhood horror stories.

Nightmare Next Door is set to bring slasher-horror films to life with characters such as disfigured midnight manglers and masked boogeyman. If you take a wrong turn in Nightmare Next Door, you may not make it out alive!

The Third Maze: Forgotten Space

Featuring sci-fi alien creatures and a crashed spaceship, when you enter the Forgotten Space maze you will experience a horrific exploration into the dark side of science while you are stalked by menacing extraterrestrial beings. Make sure you don’t get lost in this maze or you could end up in an untested dimensional warp drive!

The Fourth Maze: Welcome to the Darkside

This maze is returning this year due to popular demand. This year, the dark maze will include several exciting surprises that were not featured last year, but with only darkness as the theme. We dare you to walk through without using your flashlight and only your imagination to keep you company!
