1950s-inspired roller skate drive-in returns to the GTA this fall with new snacks

Instead of haunted houses or mazes inside, guests can get scared as they navigate 11 spooky areas and haunted attractions spread throughout the park, and faint-hearted can witness some of the “grim shows” live.

However, from 7:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. you can still ride all the terrifying rides in the park as usual. *

Online tickets to Halloween Haunt cost $ 31.99, but if you plan to ride all the roller coasters without waiting up to an hour online, you might want to invest in a quick pass, which will set you back $ 95. $.

I attended the opening night on Friday, and here’s what you can expect if you’re planning to visit Halloween Haunt this year.

Live fear zones

This year the lair has 11 spooky areas, including Gates of Terror, Kingdom of Carnage, CarnEVIL, Trick-Or-Treat, Wicked Hollow, Ghostly Pines, Forest of Fear, Streets of the Undead, Frontiers Revenge, The Farmstead and Zombies! scattered throughout the park.

I hadn’t visited Halloween Haunt since I was a kid, so I was initially disappointed to learn that there wouldn’t be any haunted houses or mazes to walk through. However, the live fear zones provided some of the fear I was looking for.

Ghouls, zombies, clowns, and horrific creatures roam the spooky areas, jumping as you stroll through the park, and while you probably won’t be scared as an adult, it adds to the vibe. Halloween.

The entire park is decorated with spooky alternate themes that you can navigate your map on, with fog rolling the streets, pumpkins galore, and live attractions to stop and watch.

My favorite fear zone would have to be Farmstead, a corn maze-inspired walkthrough with high walls of cornstalks and live actors on every corner.

That being said, if you’re a haunted house veteran and can resist fear, don’t expect to be terrified, but you can bet on entertainment.

Grim entertainment

Live shows are a must-see, and honestly I would prioritize one show over going through all the fear zones.

The six live shows broadcast in the park are Inferno, Freak Show, The Illusionist, Skelton Crew, Sink The Jerk and Vampire Disco.

I attended the 9:30 p.m. Inferno screening and the Skeleton Crew 10 p.m. screening and was honestly quite impressed.

The Inferno show was hot! The artists danced with fire at the gates of hell and even set an artist on fire.

The “fire demons” were swinging around double-ended batons with flames on either side and even swallowed fire.

Another Agent of Hell made an appearance towards the end of the show as a contortionist and displayed impressive flexibility before dooming another Soul Pour in Hell who featured an impressive leap in what seemed like be a vat of water behind the stage.

The show only lasted 15-20 minutes and was a great way to interrupt the rides and see some great entertainment.

Skeleton Crew had a host of circus performers who took turns performing on stage to perform their trades, from knife throwing and juggling to scale work and a trampoline assisted skeleton dance.

While Skeleton Crew wasn’t as intense as Inferno, it was really fun to watch.

Food, drinks and shopping

Wonderland also released a new Halloween-themed menu on opening night, so there are plenty of new dishes to try if you’re hungry at the park.

I tried four of the spooky new dishes at Backlot Cafe, including the Troll Lint Fries poutine for $ 14.99, Canary’s Mistake Fries poutine for $ 14.99, the grilled chicken burger for $ 18.99 and the burger. with chorizo ​​for $ 18.99.

The Troll Lint Fries poutine seemed almost too disgusting to eat, but it was actually quite tasty. In fact, the poutine was not made with troll lint but with pulled chicken with green curry and your typical poutine toppings with cheese curds and gravy.

The Canary Fries Poutine mistake had less of a scary factor and was actually a sticky red smoked beef brisket poutine. The meat was incredibly tender and melted in your mouth.

The two new burgers on the menu both come with kettle chips and black charcoal buns. The grilled chicken burger also comes with jalapeño cheese, while the chorizo ​​burger comes with a homemade chorizo ​​beef patty.

Along with new Halloween-themed desserts and drinks in the park, if you’re over 19, you can also pick up an Alcoholic Blood Bag for $ 11 at the bar.

If you’re a very big Halloween Haunt fan and want to remember it, you can check out the new Halloween BOOtique near the front of the park for cool photo ops or to pick up gear.
