Halloween Haunt returns


Grisly monsters, murky pathways, distant screams, and utter darkness met visitors to Wonderland’s Halloween Haunt this year. With 10 horrifying mazes, four creepy scare zones, four live shows, gut-wrenching rides, and creatures roaming the alleyways, Canada’s Wonderland was transformed into a gloomy playground of horror.

This year, Wonderland unleashed a new interactive dark ride: Zombies 4D. The thrill ride brings riders inside Wonder Mountain where zombies are on the loose. Riders have the chance to play against and alongside other riders in an attempt to escape the nightmare.

New to this year’s haunt is an attraction called Toxicity. The mutant acrobats showcase their skills through performances inside Wonderland Theatre in Medieval Faire.

Returning to the haunt this year is Mysterion the Mind Reader, a theatrical mentalist who seeks to read the minds of unsuspecting mortals.

Another popular attraction is a maze called the Asylum. The legend says that in 1923, a man named Miles Gravestone was admitted to the asylum after surviving Slaughter Mill. The horrific experience from the carnage drove Gravestone mad and ultimately angry that no one believed his story. So Miles led the inmates of the asylum in a gruesome revolt and released his rage on the doctors and nurses, who were eventually left as deranged and murderous as the patients.

Also new this year is that Fright Lane—a pass that allows front of the line access into the mazes—now includes a Skeleton Key. This promotion allows buyers priority entrance to all 10 haunted mazes at once. The Skeleton Key, which is automatically included with the Fright Lane pass, reveals a secret room inside five of the Halloween Haunt mazes.

Wonderland’s Halloween Haunt is open every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night in October, including Halloween night from 7 p.m. until midnight.
