Halloween haunted houses and ghost tours in Toronto

Haunted houses, ghost tours and attractions in Toronto are designed to send chills down your spine. While the city has many spots that are rumoured to be permanently riddled with spirits, a few pop up in October and shut down shortly after Halloween. Whether you're into hearing scary stories or just looking to pump up your adrenaline, these places have got you covered.

Here's where to go if you're looking to hang with the paranormal this Halloween season.

Halloween Haunt (October 16-18, 23-25, 30-31)
Canada's Wonderland is hosting its annual scarefest, the Halloween Haunt, every weekend this October. Give yourself the ultimate adrenaline rush by wandering the zombie- and clown-infested grounds, then follow it up with a ride on the Behemoth.

Screemers (October 16-17, 23-25, 27-31)
Screemers is back for its 23rd year, taking over Exhibition Place with its band of terrifying freaks. With seven haunted houses and the Midway of Mayhem, there's a good chance you'll lose your voice shrieking your way through the grounds. If you need a little liquid courage to see you through, its Vampire Lounge serves up brews and cocktails as per usual.

Ghost Tour of the Elgin and Winter Garden Theatre Centre (October 29)
Want to leave a haunted house with more than just fear? Take a tour of the Elgin and Winter Garden Theatre Centre. You'll learn about the history and restoration of the building and be treated to a few tales about the ghosts that may or may not inhabit it for eternity.

The Art of Darkness (October 30)
If you'd rather avoid typical haunted houses, Artscape Youngplace is throwing an event that covers all the bases on the night before Halloween. Select rooms will be haunted, while others will host hypnotists, feature art installations, have dancefloors, or something equally entertaining.

Haunted SCHOOL (October 31)
One of Toronto's favourite brunch destinations is being converted into a haunted house for one night only. Instead of indulging in eggs benedict you'll be navigating your way through the spookified restaurant, bumping into ghosts and ghouls along the way. Once you conquer the interior, head to back patio for a cocktail or two to relax. The best part? Admission doesn't cost a thing.
