Just 45 minutes from Vancouver, Spoo-ook-tacular Halloween is an annual event with family-friendly Halloween-themed activities at the Britannia Mine Museum.
Last year the event had a science theme, so the seasonal activities were educational. The same theme appears to be the case in 2020.
Britannia Mine’s Spoo-ook-tacular Halloween
Halloween Spoo-ook-tacular takes place at the Britannia Mine Museum at #1 Forbes Way in Britannia Beach which is just a 12-km drive south of Squamish.
In 2020 the event runs on the weekend of October 24th and 25th as well as on the Saturday of October 31st. Activities run from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm on all three days.
At the event last year there was a spooky train ride, science show, interactive science exhibits, photo booth and the Britannia Mine exhibit called BOOM! On one day there was also a program where folk learned about bats.
2020 details will be similar, but not exactly the same. Also important to note, admission to the event doesn’t include the Underground Experience. To do that activity you have to pay the full general admission rate.
Admission to the Spoo-ook-tacular event in 2020 costs $15 for kids ages 5 to 12 and $20 for folk ages 13 or older. Children under the age of 5 get in free. These rates are the same as they were the year before (although what’s included in 2020 compared to last year isn’t necessarily exactly the same).
