Haunted Forest Scream Train – October 14 – 31, 2022

The Bear Creek forest comes alive after dark with ghosts and ghouls intent on scaring you amidst creepy sounds and special effects. Favourite characters like Chainsaw Charlie are back and you might also run into the walking dead who roam the platform! The Scream Train is recommended for older children (12+) who can handle being scared.  The more timid passengers will love the Pumpkin Patch train as it travels through the decorated forest to the pumpkin patch!

Cougar Creek House of Horrors
Cougar Creek Garden Centre | 12530 72 Avenue
September 30 – October 31, 2022

Cougar Creek Garden Centre undergoes a Halloween transformation from a beautiful blooming garden centre to a frightening fusion of haunted houses and scream-inducing activities. 2022’s haunt includes three truly terrifying haunts: Echoes of Abbath, New Year’s Evil and Zycho Zerkus, an all new carnival maze. And back this year is the Escape from Incineration where you have 20 minutes to escape a “burning” building by solving puzzles and searching for clues. For the less adventurous, there’s a tamer version of the haunted houses with no live actors or animatronics and softer sounds that runs on October 22, 23, 29 & 30.
