I don’t know about you, but Halloween is definitely not my favourite time of the year, ever. Despite that, my friends/siblings and I made a drive to Canada’s Wonderland to check out the annual Halloween Haunt Event which features haunted houses, mazes, and “scarers” photo-bombing, and jumping on visitors throughout the amusement park. This is my first time back in Wonderland after 8 years, and my first time doing haunted houses/mazes at Wonderland so I was quite excited!
The set up was very thorough – there were “scarers” everywhere, and we definitely had a good time. The weather was perfect, not too chilly despite the fact that we were there from 8pm to past midnight. I really liked the fact that the park was very clean, well-lit and safe – there were tons of security throughout the park, and within each haunted house. Unfortunately though, the haunted houses/mazes were disappointing – the lines were long (45+ minutes wait), and they were only open from 7pm to midnight each day. There is no way you can cover all (or more than 4) haunted houses within one night. The mazes/haunted houses were decorated well, though after 2, you already know what to expect so you don’t get as scared out as you would the first time. Though I wasn’t too impressed by the Halloween Haunt, I loved doing the rides at night.
The Canada’s Wonderland Halloween Haunt Experience
My sister and I decided at the very last minute to skip out on the remaining haunted houses, and went to line up for the Behemoth. Even though it was over an hour wait, they didn’t turn us away after the park officially “closed” at midnight, and allowed everyone in the line to get their chance to ride the roller coaster. A part of me half-heartedly wanted the staff to turn us away as we got close to getting on. My heart couldn’t stop pounding, and all I could think off is how much I wanted to berate my sister for getting me to agree to doing this ride. At the very least I got to say I rode on the Behemoth!
I thought it was a great fun overall, despite the haunt itself being somewhat of a letdown. If you want to check out this event, don’t forget to get it through the PayPal offer which also entitles you to a free day admission for any time up to November 1st. The tickets are $29.99 each + taxes, delivery fee was $5.99, so both my sister and I paid around $74 for the admission to the Halloween Haunt, and 2 day admission passes. Parking was $20 which you pay upfront. If you have an e-ticket, be sure to exchange to an actual ticket before getting into the park – otherwise they’ll turn you away and you have to line up again.
Now it’s your turn! Have you tried going into a haunted house/maze or the Canada’s Wonderland Halloween Haunt? As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts! Share with me comment section or through Twitter or Instagram!
