The Vancouver Trolley Company and the Vancouver Police Museum have teamed up to present this year’s series of Haunted Halloween Trolley Tours.

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.

Reservations are required for all tours and can be made by calling (604) 801-5515 ext 100. You can also book a whole trolley for a private group at the rate of $560 plus tax (maximum 33 passengers). Departure times for these group bookings are on the hour from 5:00pm to 9:00pm).

Like last year, I have partnered up with the Vancouver Trolley Company to offer a $5 discount to my readers. Call them up right now (or anytime before October 12) to book your tour between October 14 and 21, 2011 and give them the code “Miss604”.

  2. Deidre says:

    I have wanted to do this for ages! And now my daughter is old enough to want to it with me!

  3. Vince says:

    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!!

  4. Julia says:

    I would love to take my dad on a tour like this – what a hoot we would have! He LOVES Halloween..

  5. Julia C. Edwards says:

  16. HarjitCh says:

    Never been and would love to go! Scariest attraction that I’ve ever been to was last year, Surrey’s House of Potters. ~shivers~

  17. Michael Kwan says:

    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.

  18. Marianne says:

    A historic landmark to learn of the history and haunts of that area.

  25. Jenn says:

    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.

  26. Grace says:

    Wow, this looks so cool! I think the Strathcona community centre is haunted.. I’ve heard stories about their kitchen.

  35. Lauren says:

    The morgue at the Vancouver Police Museum is super creepy to check out!

  36. Gladys says:

    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!

    I would love to go on this!!!

  39. Meghan says:

    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!

  40. Caitlin says:

    Looks like fun!

  41. Dilara says:

    I’ve always wanted to go; looks like so much fun!

  42. Vanessa says:

    I’ve never been but would love to go!

  43. Bernadette says:

    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.

  44. Jan says:

    This sounds fun.

  45. corey says:

    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 🙂

  52. Bailey says:

    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!

  53. Pat says:

    Kind of pricey, but I’d love to check it out!

  54. jeanie says:

    i’ve yet to try this trolley tour…i’m sure it would be creepy fun!

  55. Stephanie says:

    Would be fun to go!

  56. AC07-NW says:

    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!

  57. desiree yeung says:

  58. Leanna says:

  60. Michelle W. says:

    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!

  61. Mae says:

    I had never heard of this before. It sounds like it would be a lot of fun!
