Capilano Bridge is an amazing place to visit any time of the year. It’s actually one of British Columbia’s most popular and amazing tourist attractions.

It’s a terrific event that’s suitable for all ages.

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. Capilano Suspension Bridge hosted Canyon Frights for the first time in 2022. It featured again in 2023. Canyon Frights is now a hugely popular 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 are also sometimes games with prizes for kids to win. At the event guests are encouraged to wear family-friendly costumes if they want.

Tips & Advice

Below are some tips to help you make the most out of your experience at Canyon Frights. They include details about ways to save on admission as well as other general information.


Admission Tips

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: Raptors Ridge is where you can find live owls between 10:00 am and 5:30 pm on weekends.

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: Be sure to also check out Canyon Lights during the Christmas season. That event is also amazing! Also, don’t forget, BC residents can buy an annual pass for the same price as a regular ticket. If you do that, you’ll be able to go back at Christmas for free. You’ll also be able to go to Love Lights in February (assuming this Valentine’s Day-themed event happens again), and then again in the spring, summer and next fall as well!
