Canyon Frights is the new Halloween-themed event at North Vancouver’s Capilano Suspension Bridge. It features lights and spooky decorations at night in October.
Capilano Suspension Bridge’s Halloween Event
Capilano Suspension Bridge is one the most popular tourist attractions in Metro Vancouver. It’s a beautiful park with a famous suspension bridge. There are also trails, rope bridges in trees and a Cliffwalk along the edge of a canyon.
In December the place is full of Christmas lights and decorations during its festive Canyon Lights event. For the first time, in 2022, Capilano Suspension Bridge hosted Canyon Frights which is a Halloween-themed event in October.
Canyon Frights is a fun twist on the normal Capilano Suspension Bridge experience. Expect to see a few carved pumpkins, spooky displays and other Halloween decorations throughout the attraction. There is also a scavenger hunt with prizes to win for kids to enjoy. At the event guests are encouraged to wear family-friendly costumes as well if they want.

Tips and Advice
Below are some tips to help you save on admission to Canyon Frights in 2023. They include details about ways to save on admission as well as other general information
TIP #1: If you are a BC resident, buy an annual pass. It costs the same as one-day admission and it means you can go back multiple times at other times of the year for no additional charge. To qualify though you have to provide proof that you live in British Columbia.
TIP #2: You’ll save a few dollars if you buy your tickets online in advance instead of on the day at the gate.
TIP #3: Go in the late afternoon if you can especially if you’ve never been to Capilano Bridge before. That way you can walk around the park in the daylight and then a second time in the dark. The two experiences are very different.
TIP #4: In October of 2022 the online ticket reseller Tiqets.com had been offering a special deal. If you click the links to their site from the Vancouver’s Best Places website, and if you use the promo code promo code VANBEST10, you’ll save about 5% off the rates you’ll pay on Capilano Bridge’s website. (To learn more, and for a list of other attractions you can save 10% at, see our article about Tiqets.com Attractions and Savings.)
Other Things to Know
TIP #1: Canyon Frights is a great family-friendly attraction. There are a fair number of spiders and skeletons on display, including a few giant ones. The place isn’t overly scary though (unless you are extremely timid). You don’t have to worry about people in freaky costumes jumping out and saying “boo”!
TIP #2: If you’re not sure if Canyon Frights will be too scary for your especially timid child, have a look at the skeletons on the outside of the entrance. If your child can handle that, and a few bigger skeletons, they should be able to handle everything inside too. The place isn’t high on the scary scale.
TIP #3: Other family-friendly Halloween attractions in the Lower Mainland to check out include HowlOver Canada at FlyOver Canada in Vancouver and places like Petey’s Pumpkin Patch and Maan Farms in the Fraser Valley. Vancouver Mysteries also hosts fun adventure games that are good for groups of adults as well as for families with child ages 6 and older.
