Halloween Haunt set for Canada’s Wonderland

Canada’s Wonderland, Ontario, is set to launch its 14th annual Halloween Haunt event on Saturday.

Dubbed as Canada’s biggest haunt event, Halloween Haunt features nine haunted mazes, six immersive scare zones and three live shows. The even will run on select nights until Octobter 31 from 7 p.m. to midnight.

Many of the rides will be open for guests to enjoy after dark. Guests will also be able to experience three new attractions: the Crypt, Wicked Hollow and Vampire Disco.

The Crypt will be a catacomb maze filled with skulls and bones. Guests will travel into mysterious vaults where a cult are bringing the dead back to life.

Scare zones and a silent disco

In the Wicked Hollow scare zone, guests will enter a cursed forest with evil fairies and gnomes.

The park is also introducing the Vampire Disco. The event will feature Vampire DJs and dancers in a high-energy musical performance. The interactive dance party will immerse guests in a silent disco.

Canada’s Wonderland, located just outside Toronto, is now in its 32nd season. It spans 300-acres and contains more than 200 attractions including 16 rollercoasters. It is also home to Splash Works, a 20-acre water park.

Last month, the park announced plans to open the longest, fastest and tallest dive roller coaster in the world: Yukon Striker. It will feature 3,625 feet of mountainous track offering a spectacular view stretching to the Toronto skyline. The coaster features a ‘hold and dive’ element that will have riders hanging on the edge of their seats before a 90-degree, 245-foot drop. The coaster dives from zero to 130 kilometres per hour straight down into an underwater tunnel.

Cedar Fair Entertainment Company owns and operates Canada’s Wonderland. Cedar Fair is one of the world’s largest regional amusement resort operators. The company owns and operates 11 amusement parks, two outdoor water parks, one indoor water park and also five hotels.
