Where Are the Scariest Haunted Houses in Edmonton?Edmonton is home to many haunted houses that are guaranteed to fright and delight! In addition to decorating the home and finding the perfect costume, nothing says Halloween like a bone-chilling walk through a haunted house. Get ready to see the city of Edmonton at its spookiest at these Edmonton Halloween houses.

Deadmonton Haunted House

Deadmonton Haunted House is by far the spookiest and downright frightening place of its kind in Edmonton. Attendees are treated to highly detailed and realistic props and costumed actors throughout. Many describe the experience as walking through multiple movie sets, as each year, the Deadmonton crew fully commits to over-the-top themes. Plus, there's a food truck and concession available to enjoy.

If the regular haunted house isn't scary enough for you, drop by the Lights Out! event on November 3 and 4. Here, all the lights are turned off and each group is only given one source of light to help them get around. Tickets for Lights Out! range from $39.99 to $49.99, depending on whether you buy online or at the door. One other special event is their Special Thanksgiving Weekend, which takes place on October 8.

Regular admission is between $39.99 and $44.99 online and $44.99 to $49.99 when you get your tickets at the door. Those who want to be at the front of the line for the scares can pay a little extra for a Speed Pass.

  • Location: Deadmonton Haunted House, 9300 47 St NW, Edmonton, AB T6B 2P6
  • Dates: September 29 to November 4

DARK at Fort Edmonton Park

Who would conceive of having a Halloween celebration and spook zone at a historic Canadian military post? The folks at Fort Edmonton Park culminated this brilliant idea in 2018 with the introduction of DARK, which features three nerve-wracking immersive haunted houses. Each exhibit is designed as a linear experience from beginning to end with the goal of telling a spooky story that will appeal to a variety of audiences.

This year's three haunts include Bloodshed Passage (a new haunt that takes place in a frontier town taken over by zombies), 3 AM (a haunt filled with demons hoping to trap you), and Under the Big Top (circus-themed haunt with a killer clown). The event also features local food trucks, themed cocktails, and a live DJ. Plus, there's a DARK retail shop for those who want some souvenirs from their spooky trip, and there's a Quiz Night every Monday in October on the park's Instagram Live. You might even win tickets to DARK!

Tickets to attend DARK are $45, not including fees and taxes. Hotel packages are also available with the Hotel Selkirk—visitors can enjoy perks like VIP parking, admission to DARK, and DARK toques.

  • Location: Fort Edmonton Park, 7000 143 Street NW Edmonton, AB T6H 4P3
  • Dates: October 6 to October 29 (All Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, and October 29)

Pumpkins After Dark

Pumpkins After Dark promises family-friendly fun all October long! Located on the north side of Borden Park, attendees can walk through rows of more than 10,000 hand-carved Jack-o-lanterns. The paths come to life with special effects and music, and there are plenty of photo opportunities between the pumpkins and the special guests you'll find, like dinosaurs and Halloween characters. Visitors can also enjoy live pumpkin carving demonstrations while they snack on fall treats. 

Tickets start at $15.95 for youth ages 4 to 16 and cost $18.95 for adults 17 and up. Family Packs include four tickets (two kids, two adults) for $64.80, and flex passes are available for $34.95 and are good for any day and time.

  • Location: Borden Park, 7727 Borden Park Rd NW, Edmonton, AB T5B 4W8

Kiwi's Haunted House

If you want a haunted house experience that's a little more kid-friendly, Kiwi's Haunted House is a great option. The greenhouse and surrounding trails are transformed to give visitors an "eerily good time." On the days the event is open, kids can have a good time from 6-6:30 p.m. before the spook level kicks up for the adults later. On October 28, there's also a kids costume contest where children can try to win in categories like most creative, cutest, and scariest.

Tickets are $6 a person and priority passes are available for $10, though food bank donations are also accepted. Children under 10 can enter for free. The price of tickets will also include a small flashlight, and part of every ticket sold will be donated to the Parkland Food Bank.
