Just in time for Halloween! An audio trip through some of Barrie’s most haunted places and a re-telling of the city’s most famous old murder mystery!
Haunted houses are an absolute must for Halloween every year. In 2020, the pickings are slim, given that whole Pandemic thing (which is kind of like a full year version of Halloween scary stories)
However, there a few of haunted houses, eerie socially-distanced walk-throughs and creepy drive throughs running within driving distance of Barrie. Level up your spook by checking out one or two! Keep in mind that it’s best to check each in advance to ensure they are still open, and what Covid restrictions are in place.
Here’s a roundup of haunted Halloween houses and drive-thrus in and around Barrie this year.
Although it’s not as terrifying as a full on haunted house, Round’s Ranch still provides slightly petrifying experiences in their extensive corn maze. (And anyone who as seen Signs knows full well that corn mazes are CREEPY)
The kids can navigate the maze after dark, or in early evening, with only a flashlight to guide their way. Round’s ranch is operating the maze every Saturday in October, so you still have a few weekends to take part. They’ve also got loads of daytime and pumpkin related mischief to entertain the family.
East Gwillimbury’s most terrifying 1.5-acres is open and looking for victims. This wooded area walk through experience includes an insane asylum, a butcher shop, a cemetery, Frankenstein’s Lab, and some very horrifyingly effective actors. Masks are mandatory. Running every Friday and Saturday in October, 7:00PM – 10:00PM
Halloween Night of Lights is a creepier version of the drive-thru light fests that takes place during winter holidays in the colder months. Instead of Xmas carols, you’ll get spooky music piping through the speakers. And any reindeers involved will likely be zombie-fied.
The immersive experience uses over 700,000 LED lights and runs out of the 21-acre Improve Canada outdoor space in Vaughan. Tickets are reserved in advance (by the car, not the person) to ensure the entire experience completely contactless. It’s a 2 km drive with about 30 minutes of scary fun programming.
