What I love about the Haunted Halloween Trolley Tour is that you not only get to enjoy a night out seeing dark sites around Vancouver, you get a dose of local history with each story from your guide.

Went on this tour a few years ago — really well done. 🙂
I have wanted to do this for ages! And now my daughter is old enough to want to it with me!
The Burnaby Art Gallery! The building has an intersting history. There are reported sightings of a woman dressed in an old fashioned white gown who strolls the halls and walks through walls. There is also the figure of a man in old fashioned clothing who stands at the top of the main staircase. These two ghosts are believed to be Henry and Grace Ceperley!!
I would love to take my dad on a tour like this – what a hoot we would have! He LOVES Halloween..
I am so excited to try the haunted trolley tour this year! My husband and I have planned to go with friends of ours for the past 2 years but we always wait too long to book and they are all sold out! We are going to book early this year because we don’t want to miss it!
Haven’t done this yet! Looking forward to learning about some of our local ghost stories!
This tour looks awesome!
This is so cool!
I’ve wanted to do this for so long!
looks like fun 🙂
I just found out about this! Looks like fun!
I’m definitely going to be trying this out!
I love going on this tour!
I love taking the kids on the Ghost Train
A bunch of co-workers and I are going for the first time. Thanks for the discount code!
Never been and would love to go! Scariest attraction that I’ve ever been to was last year, Surrey’s House of Potters. ~shivers~
Everyone has a different story about the house on Cambie and King Edward. It’s not nearly as scary now with a relatively new house, but the tales of waking up in the backyard or seeing footsteps going up the side of the garage were quite common.
A historic landmark to learn of the history and haunts of that area.
can’t wait to try this out … something different from fright nights 🙂
I have always wanted to go on this tour!
Looks like fun.
I’ve always wanted to go to the autopsy room!!!!!
This would be soo cool! I personally have not experienced anything Halloween related for myself since we moved here 6 years ago…Yah we take the kids out trick or treating, but a halloween treat for mom and dad would be SWEET 😉
I would love to go on this tour… haven’t experienced any “spookiness” on my own in Vancouver yet!
The Firehall Arts Centre is haunted. With a few deaths dating back to it’s real Firehall days, a few un-rested souls roam the building, including the Bear cub that was kept as a pet. A woman is also seen roaming the corridor, and a mishceivous spirit moves things on the lower floors.
Wow, this looks so cool! I think the Strathcona community centre is haunted.. I’ve heard stories about their kitchen.
I wish to do this Halloween Tour and would invite my bro. Beleive me I wish to feel like a kid once again! Tweeted it @toothfairycyber too!!
Wow, looks kool!
I’m not sure what’s haunted.
I’d love to check this out! I’ve heard that on Burnaby Mountain some people have seen a ghost on the road up to SFU….not clear on the details though, sorry!
I would like to Win!
I don’t have a story, but I am sure I’d have lots after the tour! hahaha.
This tour sounds fun, would love to try!
The keg in New Westminster is supposed to be haunted – it was a train station in the 1800s!
The morgue at the Vancouver Police Museum is super creepy to check out!
I’ve always heard about the house on the southeast corner of the King Ed & Cambie intersection. Furniture floating around and suitcases packing themselves. Not too sure . . . but would I want to be the one to try and find out for myself. Heck no!
Love ghosts n stuff
I would love to go on this!!!
Last year, my friends and I were walking to a Halloween party and we came across the most wonderfully spooky haunted house in the middle of suburban Norgate neighbourhood in North Van. It was unreal the work that had gone into this house, with all proceeds going to charity. Such a treat to stumble across it!
Looks like fun!
I’ve always wanted to go; looks like so much fun!
I’ve never been but would love to go!
well my story is about the house on King Edward and Cambie street, a man and his family moved in but spirits still lingered. They would hear footsteps, doors opening, and movements in the hallway and they’ve actually performed siances in this house a few times, and it has been on the market on and off the past ten years.
This sounds fun.
The most haunted place in Van is my boyfriends house!!!! so many people have seen little kids running around….his mom even spoke to one of them!!
I don’t have a story since i was always too terrify as a kid to go to places that are “haunted”
this would be amazinggggg
would love to check this out!
the Cultch was haunted…my fiancee used to work there…and it was creepy!
Something new yay!
I was at the Vancouver Police Museum (the old morgue) once when the lights turned off because of a lightning storm outside. Creepy…
But on another note, I’d love to see the Vancouver Police Museum as part of the trolley tour! (also entered via twitter 🙂
My birthday is on Oct 24 so my birthday always becomes something “Halloween’ish” I have decided to just embrace this and i do love anything scary so its prefect! My husband and I have started a tradition and on my birthday he takes me to something “scary” last year we went to the haunted house on Dunbar St. it was AMAZING..so good and scary. I love it. This trolley tour sounds fabulous and a great way for me to celebrate!
Kind of pricey, but I’d love to check it out!
i’ve yet to try this trolley tour…i’m sure it would be creepy fun!
Would be fun to go!
we experienced it in different places like PNE fright nights, in Metrotown, in Van. Police Museum, etc. . .technically, it was really frightening ‘coz there are monsters around and lots of creepy creatures in shadow.. .the end of it is, you’re a bit frightened but somewhat a mixture of a happy mood and excitement for the reason that you want to share it or to talk it over and over again to your friends and buddies. . .for now, we want to try Haunted Halloween Trolly Tour for a new expeirence!
theres a by donation haunted house down dunbar every halloween thats held by a fire fighter. its HELLA scary!
Sounds like creepy good fun!
looks like an excellent evening out – ghouls beware I want to take this tour and I don’t scare easy……..
I think my apartment is haunted! Today I got home, and the Telus guy was knocking at my apartment door (actual apartment door, not the building door). He said that he had buzzed to get in, and that a woman buzzed him up, but there was no one home! I think it was a ghost!
I had never heard of this before. It sounds like it would be a lot of fun!
Would love to take my daughter on this. She used to be too scared of this sort of thing but is now very much a Halloween fan.
this would be so cool to go to, my husbands birthday is october 28th so of course anything halloween is big in our house. he would love this.
My boyfriend is terrified of spooky things – I’ve LOVE to take him on this!
Obviously Fright Nights at Playland is another Vancouver Halloween favourite!
The Vancouver Police Museum at Gore & Cordova has some spooky elements to it- especially the morgue in the basement!
I’ve never been on this tour before, it would be awesome to win. 🙂
Ghost Train is alot of fun!
This sounds so cool!
I’ve never been but i’d love to go!
Went to frigHt nights last year…never heard so much screaming. Would take my mom who seems to think she’s seen a few ghosts in her time and likes to share her stories and make your hair stand on end. Great stories all around!
good to get the $#&* scared outta you once in awhile.
