The Zombie Combat Zone says it’s a “fight for your life through a ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE!”. You’ll be set loose in the forest, on 57 acres, with a paintball gun and as the website states, “all the guts you can muster.” We’re a little in love with the whole zombie thing, and something about this sounds kinda fun. I’m not a big paintball fan, but I think I could have fun here…
The Zombie Syndrome website says it’s a “site specific, interactive, smart phone enabled, roving theatre adventure.” Wow. OK, lets break that down…It’s a scavenger hunt for big kids! You gotta use your phone, find clues, save the world from zombies (of course, duh) while running through the streets of Vancouver. How cool is that?
Halloween in Vancouver is not complete with a mention of the amazingly fantastic Dunbar Haunted House. Created from the simple love of October 31st and all it symbolizes, this volunteer driven spectacle is a wonder to behold. And, the best part? Not only will it scare your pants off, BUT 100% of the proceeds go to charity! It’s $10 for adults. Really.
For all ages, don’t forget to take a ride on the Stanley Park Ghost Train. On October 30th, go down in full costume at 7 pm and you could win some fun prizes.
This year, there’s a brand new fright-house at Fright Nights at the PNE, called FEAR. Before you click on that link, adjust your volume or prepare yourself to hear a blood curdling scream. Not so fun when you’re home alone, in the dark, and you hear it….I’m just sayin’.
The Parade of Lost Souls. Now, the location of the actual walk will NOT BE REVEALED until October 27th. Somewhere in the alleys of East Van, a community is working on one of the coolest Halloween events you will ever be part of. The walk will take place on the 27th, from 5:30-9:30 with a suggested donation of $5. I can’t believe I’ve never been to this one, but it comes highly recommended. Check out the site for info on how this came about!
From October 19-31st, the Vancouver Trolley Company opens its doors to take you on a spooky ride…Haunted Halloween style. Learn about Vancouver’s creepy past, hear the ghost stories and visit Mountain View Cemetery. Not a bad night at all!
Whatever you do, do it safely. Make sure you’re easily visible to passing vehicles, get a permit for your fireworks and use them responsibly. For the over 19 years old- don’t drink and drive. Simple. Happy Haunting!
