Event at Haunted Calgary

Tagged in: Kids, Cool & Unique, Free, Weekend, Teen, Halloween

Haunted Calgary is the largest walk-through haunted yard attraction in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, featuring approximately 10,000 square feet of scares! Over 500 man-power hours are dedicated by volunteers to design and construct the attraction each year: our "Fear Engineers". Another 60 or so people volunteer each night as cast and crew: our "Scream Team."

Haunted Calgary offers hands-on experience for youth and adults looking to build skills in areas such as: construction, architectural design, theatre, set design, costuming, and much more. We've partnered with agencies such as Calgary Alpha House Society, Girl Guides of Canada, and the University of Calgary to provide job-training experience and resume-building opportunities as well as service projects.

As one of Calgary's largest haunted attractions, most guests take approximately 20 to 30 minutes to explore- depending on how brave they are! This is an outdoor attraction so dress warm and be prepared to wait in lines during peak hours. Wear sturdy footwear for safety. Costumes are welcome, but please leave weapons and large or bulky costumes at home, in your vehicle, or check them with our box office volunteers to avoid injury or getting stuck in tight spaces.

Our 2017 hours are October 27, 28, and 31. Low scare (daylight, few to no actors) is 2 to 4pm. Full scare is from 6 to 10pm. The theme is "Hollywood Horror."

We aim to be the scariest haunted attraction you'll see so parental discretion is strongly advised during full scare hours. We welcome guests of all ages, but recommend that parents preview the attraction to determine if your kids can handle it. We have young children who absolutely love it and adults who pee their pants, so it's not possible for our volunteers to decide if it's appropriate for you or your kids. There is a low scare option which has few to no actors and is held during daylight hours. While some visitors still find it too scary, it's the best time to come if you're nervous. Then, come back for the real thing if you're brave enough!

Entrance to this popular Calgary tradition is by donation for our charity partners. It's a pay-what-you-can attraction, but we recommend $10 per person for Oops-a-Dazy Rescue and Sanctuary Society and two non-perishable food items for the Calgary Interfaith Food Bank. This year, the goal is to raise $10,000 for Oops-a-Dazy Rescue and Sanctuary Society and 10,000 lb of food for the Food Bank.

Scare you soon!
