    Went on this tour a few years ago — really well done. 🙂

  2. DeidreFriday, September 30th, 2011 — 11:30am PDT

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

  3. VinceFriday, September 30th, 2011 — 11:35am PDT

    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..

  5. Julia C. EdwardsFriday, September 30th, 2011 — 12:23pm PDT

    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!

  6. JaredFriday, September 30th, 2011 — 12:28pm PDT

    Haven’t done this yet! Looking forward to learning about some of our local ghost stories!

    A bunch of co-workers and I are going for the first time. Thanks for the discount code!

  16. HarjitChFriday, September 30th, 2011 — 9:28pm PDT

    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 KwanFriday, September 30th, 2011 — 9:41pm PDT

    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. MarianneFriday, September 30th, 2011 — 10:56pm PDT

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

  19. vanessaFriday, September 30th, 2011 — 11:10pm PDT

    can’t wait to try this out … something different from fright nights 🙂

  20. LoraSaturday, October 1st, 2011 — 7:36am PDT

    Looks like fun.

  22. JSaturday, October 1st, 2011 — 5:08pm PDT

    I’ve always wanted to go to the autopsy room!!!!!

  23. Ginger GervaisSunday, October 2nd, 2011 — 10:16am PDT

    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 😉

  24. JennSunday, October 2nd, 2011 — 11:54am PDT

    I would love to go on this tour… haven’t experienced any “spookiness” on my own in Vancouver yet!

  25. JennSunday, October 2nd, 2011 — 12:08pm PDT

    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. GraceSunday, October 2nd, 2011 — 3:22pm PDT

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

  27. Tooth FairySunday, October 2nd, 2011 — 4:26pm PDT

    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!!

  28. annSunday, October 2nd, 2011 — 8:25pm PDT

  29. TeresaSunday, October 2nd, 2011 — 8:49pm PDT

    I’m not sure what’s haunted.

  30. CharleneMonday, October 3rd, 2011 — 3:22am PDT

    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!

  32. RobbinMonday, October 3rd, 2011 — 12:18pm PDT

  34. AnneMonday, October 3rd, 2011 — 1:00pm PDT

    The keg in New Westminster is supposed to be haunted – it was a train station in the 1800s!

  35. LaurenMonday, October 3rd, 2011 — 1:57pm PDT

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

  36. GladysMonday, October 3rd, 2011 — 4:03pm PDT

    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!

  37. NickMonday, October 3rd, 2011 — 6:17pm PDT

  39. MeghanMonday, October 3rd, 2011 — 8:46pm PDT

    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. CaitlinMonday, October 3rd, 2011 — 9:32pm PDT

    Looks like fun!

  41. DilaraTuesday, October 4th, 2011 — 1:28am PDT

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

  42. VanessaTuesday, October 4th, 2011 — 7:48am PDT

    I’ve never been but would love to go!

  43. BernadetteTuesday, October 4th, 2011 — 8:26am PDT

    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. JanTuesday, October 4th, 2011 — 9:35am PDT

    This sounds fun.

  45. coreyTuesday, October 4th, 2011 — 10:37am PDT

    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!!

  46. maryTuesday, October 4th, 2011 — 11:39am PDT

    I don’t have a story since i was always too terrify as a kid to go to places that are “haunted”

  47. DarcyTuesday, October 4th, 2011 — 12:37pm PDT

    this would be amazinggggg

  48. AllyTuesday, October 4th, 2011 — 1:39pm PDT

  49. LindsayTuesday, October 4th, 2011 — 2:00pm PDT

  50. ShannonTuesday, October 4th, 2011 — 2:17pm PDT

    Something new yay!

  51. LaureenTuesday, October 4th, 2011 — 2:32pm PDT

    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. BaileyTuesday, October 4th, 2011 — 3:25pm PDT

    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 good and scary. I love it. This trolley tour sounds fabulous and a great way for me to celebrate!

  53. PatTuesday, October 4th, 2011 — 4:01pm PDT

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

  54. jeanieTuesday, October 4th, 2011 — 4:11pm PDT

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

  55. StephanieTuesday, October 4th, 2011 — 4:28pm PDT

    Would be fun to go!

  56. AC07-NWTuesday, October 4th, 2011 — 6:16pm PDT

    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 yeungTuesday, October 4th, 2011 — 8:35pm PDT

  60. Michelle W.Tuesday, October 4th, 2011 — 10:45pm PDT

    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. MaeTuesday, October 4th, 2011 — 11:25pm PDT

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

  62. SharonWednesday, October 5th, 2011 — 6:36am PDT

  63. kimWednesday, October 5th, 2011 — 9:43am PDT

  65. Samantha J.Wednesday, October 5th, 2011 — 2:18pm PDT

    Obviously Fright Nights at Playland is another Vancouver Halloween favourite!

  66. Brian PatersonWednesday, October 5th, 2011 — 3:23pm PDT

    The Vancouver Police Museum at Gore & Cordova has some spooky elements to it- especially the morgue in the basement!

  67. AliciaThursday, October 6th, 2011 — 1:19am PDT
