4) Fear Farm

Located in Bright, this farm is Snyder’s by day…and Fear Farm by night. Fear Farm features six haunts, including a haunted corn maze, a haunted hayride, a haunted house, and a haunted carnival-themed attraction. Complete with clowns, which are scary enough as is, let alone when they’re made to be scary on purpose. This place is guaranteed to send chills all over your body and make your hair stand on end. Tickets only sell until 9:59 p.m. – it’ll probably be packed this weekend, and organizers say that this attraction is “SCARY!” Age limits are in place. An adult must accompany no kids under 5 years of age and anyone between 5 and 14.

3) Black Creek Pioneer Village: Where the Dark Things Dwell 

Your daytime school trip just got a whole lot creepier with their brand new nighttime escape game, Where the Dark Things Dwell. This working 1800s village will immerse you in the world of 1867 like it did when you were 10, but this time, with a twist. This escape game in North York requires you to break a cult curse that’s taken over the village. Here’s the story as described by Secret City Adventures: “Stopping in the sleepy village of Black Creek for a night’s rest, you and your fellow travellers find yourselves trapped as strange cultists work to awaken an ancient evil force. Now it’s up to you to stop the cultists’ curse. You must save the remaining villagers and discover the great incantation to stop the evil from rising and escape the village before the final bell tolls.” Not recommended for children under 13!

2) The Original Haunted Walk of Kingston

This walk is believed to be one of the best ghost walks in Canada. This 90-minute walk begins in the lobby of the Prince George Hotel (200 Ontario Street) and takes you through the quiet streets of the city at night. If you choose this tour, you’ll learn about hangings at the courthouse, body snatchings, and a haunted guest house.

1) Jaymes White: The Beverley Street Séance

If you’re looking to be chilled to the bone this Fall, look no further than Jaymes White’s Beverley Street Séance! White is known across Canada for hosting some of the best experiences in the supernatural field. Now he is bringing a new authentic Victorian Séance at one of downtown Toronto’s most haunted locations: George Brown House.

In an interview with Insauga, White went over what to expect from the experience. “It will be a one of a kind experience for everyone,” said White. “It has something for everyone, and it’s sure to be a thrilling experience!”

White is also a well-known mind reader and master at manipulation; using hypnotism, suggestion, and mind control. Police detectives and law-enforcement often seek him out for help learning to read people’s body language and handwriting.

Skeptical? That’s just what he wants to hear! “I encourage all skeptics to come to the séance for themselves,” said White. “I’ve had many throughout the years, and they still have had a blast and were scared by the end of the night!” 

Will you take on White’s challenge? The séance is currently running now until November 30th, and you can book your tickets here.
