The Vancouver Trolley Company is bringing back their popular Haunted Halloween Trolley Tours this season featuring local history, spooky stories, and a stop over at Mountain View Cemetery.

As the night falls and shadows begin to appear, you will be whisked away by Trolley where you will see streets and homes, which seem normal, but if you look and listen close enough you will hear echoes of murders and other devastating events. Your spooky host will tell the gruesome tales of troubled ghosts, how they met their end, and where they now occupy their time.

Daily tours will depart from Canada Place from October 19th to October 31st, 2012 at 5:30pm, 6:30pm, 7:30pm and 8:30pm with 9:30pm tours on Fridays, Saturdays and Halloween night. Due to the nature of the tales told, this experience is recommended for those 13 years old and above.

Tickets are now available for $40 by calling (604) 801-5515 to make your reservation. These always sell out so be sure to book well in advance. Group bookings can also be made to reserve a whole trolley for your office, friends, or family (up to 33 people).

I have a pair of tickets to give away for the Haunted Halloween Trolley tour again this year. Here’s how you can enter to win:

  • Leave a comment here naming a fear of yours — anything from spiders to ghosts or heights (1 entry)
  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
RT to enter to win Haunted Halloween Trolley Tour tickets from @VanTrolley & @Miss604

I will draw one winner next Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 12:00pm. Follow the Vancouver Trolley Company on Facebook and Twitter to learn more about their scenic tours and tour packages.

Update The winner is Michaela!

    My only real fear is bees. Haha. Sounds funny but if you’re allergic it’s not as much the fear of the bees, it’s the fear of dying because of them.
