Finally! The month we’ve all been waiting for is here, ghouls! After weeks of anticipation, October is in full swing – and we want you to make the most of it. Now, while we love those more wholesome events and activities like pumpkin picking and Halloween decoration shopping, it’s really the spookier, darker side of the holiday that we love most – and because we know we’re not alone, today we’re sharing the 13 best-haunted houses and attractions in Alberta that will scare you silly. Check them out and have a terrifying time, friends!


Creepy Hollow is one of the most unique, most underrated spots on this entire list, period. Unlike anything else that you’ll see in the province, this haunted experience acts as a campsite, haunted house hybrid with creepy touches throughout the entire park. Explore spooky houses, participate in movie nights and play games with other guests during your stay! It’s essentially a Halloween-themed summer camp for adults. Don’t want to sleep over? Check out their Fright Night events every Thursday – Saturday until November 7th.

When: Thursdays – Saturdays all October long
Where: 44046 AB-4, Warner, AB
Time: 6 pm – 10 pm
