We’re halfway through September, and that means Halloween is just around the corner. And if you want to get scared this Halloween season, I’m sure you’d love to know about a great event in the Greater Toronto Area. And I have the perfect event for you: Legends of Horror at Casa Loma!
Yes, Casa Loma will be transformed into a haunted attraction. It will be an immersive theatrical experience, presented as “promenade theatre”. This means you can walk through Legends of Horror at your own pace.
It is a two-km trail that makes its way into the lower gardens of Casa Loma. It winds its way through the castle’s tunnels and dark spaces, some of which have never been open before to the public. The whole experience takes about an hour.
So what makes this experience so terrifying? How about some of the scariest characters from horror movies and legends? This includes Dracula, Creature from the Black Lagoon, and the Phantom of the Opera. Live actors and 3D projection on the exterior of the castle brings these characters and their storyline to life. They designed this attraction to present “a macabre chase for love and immortality”.
This is a scary attraction, so parental discretion is advised. Kids who are 16 years old and under must be accompanied by an adult. This year for the first time, there are family hours earlier in the evening, from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM. Since it is still light out, it’s less scary for kids. from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM daily, earlier in the evening when it’s still light out, so it’s less scary for kids and families. There are no live actors during family hours, too, which helps it be less scary for children.
