Vancouver Horror Nights at Halloweeen

Vancouver Horror Nights

Vancouver Horror Nights is one of Metro Vancouver’s top Halloween attractions. It’s an indoor series of haunted mazes with live actors.

Located at Coquitlam Centre in 2022, the place has escape rooms, a House of Fear and a second maze where you are blindfolded, handcuffed and led around in the dark! It’s a popular destination for hard-core fright seekers! The venue also has a couple of attractions for kids and more timid folk.

Coquitlam’s Vancouver Horror Nights

Vancouver Horror Nights is a large, haunted attraction that features maze experiences with different themes in the month of October. The attraction runs on select days between October 13th and November 5th in 2022 in Coquitlam.

Last year Vancouver Horror Nights had three different maze themes, as well as a Zombie Café & Bar. In 2022 the event features eight new experiences, plus escape rooms, a behind-the-scenes tour and an expanded Zombie Bar & Café.

We visited the haunted attraction last year at its previous location in Port Coquitlam and we visited it again this year at its new location at Coquitlam Town Centre. It is impressive! We especially love the theatrical aspect of the mazes. The sets and make-up of the characters is amazing! The live actors are all really good too.

If you like haunted houses and scary attractions, you’ll love this place!

Where is Vancouver Horror Nights

In 2022 Vancouver Horror Nights takes place at Coquitlam Centre. The mall’s address is 2929 Barnet Highway in Coquitlam. The attraction is in the old Sears department store location on the eastern side of the mall near the corner of Pinetree Way and Lincoln Avenue.

Vancouver Horror Nights is only accessible from outside the mall. You cannot enter from inside the shopping centre. Try to park close to Scotiabank as the entrance to the haunted attraction is just around the corner from there.

Haunted Attraction Admission

In 2022, general admission varies depending on the haunted experiences you choose to do.

As of mid-October, admission to each of the escape rooms and haunted mazes starts at about $25 per person. For folks who wish to skip all lines, VIP tickets cost $100+ more per person.

The behind-the-scenes tour costs about $60 each. Kids’ activities are less expensive as they start at about $15 each in 2022.

Due to COVID-19, all guests are required to book a timeslot, regardless of which haunted experience they wish to attend. Although you can purchase as many tickets as you want, only up to six people are allowed to enter the mazes at the same time.

What to Expect at Vancouver Horror Nights

Vancouver Horror Nights boasted three different maze variations in 2021. Two of them were designed to scare people. The third one was more kid-friendly.

In 2022 Vancouver Horror Nights offers even more experiences. This year there are two major haunted house variations in addition to four escape rooms. There are also two experiences for kids to enjoy. See below for more details about each activity.

Sacrifice and House of Fear Attractions

In 2022 the two scariest experiences are the House of Fear and Sacrifice Sensory Deprivation Maze.

Both attractions are open during most of October. They run on October 13th to 16th, 19th to 23rd and 25th to 31st. For those who miss out on the experiences in October, both attractions also happen on November 4th and 5th this year.

The House of Fear variation is twice the size of the similar maze from last year. Expect lots of live actors, animatronics and impressive but spooky special effects. It’s a great haunted house! The sets are exceptional, the actors are great and the costumes and makeup are all first rate!

This year’s Sacrifice maze is one where you are blindfolded, hooded and chained to the rest of your group. In this variation, live actors have permission to touch guests. There are also things to smell, hear and taste. In addition, there is a scary drop towards the end where you can choose to fall backwards or have your blindfold taken off.

In 2022 another offering is the Behind the Screams Tour. It’s a unique opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at Vancouver Horror Nights. Folks can explore the costume area and makeup studio backstage. As part of the tour, you also get to watch others get scared from the main control booth.

Escape Rooms at Vancouver Horror Nights

New for 2022 are four different escape room experiences. Each has its own exciting theme and challenges.

In order of difficulty from easy to difficult, Wesgrave Asylum Escape Rooms include Dr. Purdy, Orderly O’Donnell and Nurse Moore.

There is also Jigsaw’s Revenge in which your arm is stuck in a guillotine and you have to solve a puzzle with your other arm in order to escape.

Boogeyman Bash and House of Fear Jr.

Unlike the other maze variations, the Boogeyman Bash is a family-friendly event intended for kids. In 2022 there are several activities to enjoy including games, face painting and an inflatable haunted maze.

The other kid-friendly attraction available in 2022 is the House of Fear Jr. All terrifying parts of the nightly adult version of the maze are removed during the day. There are no live actors or scares which makes the experience fun for young children.

Both the Bogeyman Bash and House of Fear Jr. run on October 13th to 16th, 20th to 23rd and 25th to 31st. The experiences also happen on November 4th and 5th.

Tips and Advice

Below are some suggestions and extra information to help you make the most out of your Halloween experience in Coquitlam.

TIP #1: If you get the chance to visit this Halloween attraction, go! Last year’s experiences were really good, and this year’s are even bigger and better!

TIP #2: Try to go earlier in the season and near the start of the night. That’s when the crowds are usually smaller. As the evening progresses, the lineup gets bigger.

TIP #3: Some of the rooms inside the attraction have flashing lights which might not be suitable for people with light sensitivities. There is artificial fog in some places as well.

TIP #4: Remember, Vancouver Horror Nights isn’t accessible from inside the mall. You’ll have to enter from outside. Park near Scotiabank for easy access.

TIP #5: If you have friends who are visually impaired who want to experience a haunted house, recommend they do the Sacrifice Sensory Deprivation Maze. With this attraction everyone is blindfolded, so you don’t have to be able to see.

TIP #6: Don’t forget that the venue sells food and drinks (including alcoholic beverages in blood bags)! Enjoy some refreshments while you’re there. It might help calm your nerves!
