Haunted Houses in Vancouver
Vancouver and the Lower Mainland are full of haunted houses in October leading up to Halloween. Most are super freaky and not for the faint of heart. Others are suitable for the entire family, except maybe not for very young children and folk with nervous dispositions.
If you are looking for ghosts, ghouls, gore and spooky places, you’ll find all that at the following Lower Mainland Halloween haunted houses. See each venue’s website for exact information.
Abbotsford Haunted House
- Sandpiper Sanitarium – Admission by donation benefitting the Canuck Place Children’s Hospice. Open in the evenings for about three nights at 3037 Sandpiper Drive. Includes a tamer “Little Ghost Zone” for younger children. This is a haunted house put together by a family at their home. The lineups aren’t huge, but it’s still impressive. In 2016 the Sandpiper Sanitarium is open October 29-31 from 6 to 9 pm.
Burnaby Haunted Houses
- Burnaby’s Haunted Village – A family-friendly event costing $14 for older folk and $9 for children ages 2 to 12. Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, live entertainment and free carousel rides. 2016 dates are October 27th to 30th from 6 to 9 pm.

Surrey Haunted Houses
- Halloween Pumpkin Express – Child-friendly miniature train rides at Bear Creek Park in Surrey from 10 am until 4:30 pm from October 7th to 31st. Cost is $11.

- Potter’s House of Horrors – Two amazing haunted venues at 12530 72nd Avenue. One house is “Monstrosity” and the other “The Swampin’ Slaughterhouse.” Both are open for most of October. Regular admission is $14-$16 for adults and $10-$12 for children ages 12 and under depending on the day per house, or slightly less than double for both attractions. Speed passes that help you bypass the main queues are also available for close to twice the price, but worth it on weekends when the line ups can be up to 1.5 hours. Family hour is more appropriate for all ages and runs from 4 to 6:30 pm most days. The scarier stuff runs daily from 7 to 10 pm. This is one of the Lower Mainland’s best haunted houses and worth waiting in the long line-ups for. Highly recommended! Open every day in October 2016 except for the 3th, 4th, 5th, 6th and 10th.
