It’s that time of the year again: to get out your costumes and carving tools, and indulge in too much candy. If you’re looking to spook things up this year, Vancouver has lots of Halloween activities that will keep you on your toes. From family outings to adult-only events, we’ve rounded up some highlights you won’t want to miss this Halloween season.
One of our favourite year-round attractions is Stanley Park, and during Halloween is no exception. The Ghost Train is back to give riders a thrilling experience around the park. This year’s theme, Alien Invasion, abducts riders into an unearthly journey into the restricted zones, where they’ll witness the spaceship landing. Open to all ages, other plaza activities will include a pumpkin patch, arts and crafts, a Haunted Maze, and exhibits by the Stanley Park Ecology Society.
When: October 13 to 31, Monday to Thursday 5:30 – 9:30, Friday to Sunday 5:30 – 10:00
