The Vancouver Trolley Company and Vancouver Police Museum are joining forces to bring you spooky tales and infamous local ghost stories for the Haunted Vancouver Trolley Tour this season.

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 host will tell the gruesome tales of troubled spirits, how they met their end, and where they now occupy their time. You will drive through eerie locations such as Stanley Park and the winding roads of Shaughnessy and stop to visit Mountain View Cemetery and the autopsy room of the Vancouver Police Museum where over 15,000 autopsies have been performed.

Tours will depart daily from Canada Place from October 18th to October 31st at 6:30pm, 7:30pm and 8:30pm with 9:30pm (except Mondays and Sundays) and they last 2.5 hours.

Tickets are now available for $40 by calling (604) 801-5515 to make your reservation. Full prepayment is required to guarantee your preferred date and time. 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’m happy to 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 listing your favourite/scariest Halloween costume (1 entry)
  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
RT to enter to win Haunted Vancouver Trolley Tour tickets from @VanTrolley & @Miss604

I will draw one winner next Wednesday, October 9, 2013 at 12:00pm. Due to the nature of the tales told, this experience is recommended for those 13 years old and above. The winner will be able to choose their preferred tour date/time (based on availability). Follow the Vancouver Trolley Company on Facebook and Twitter to learn more about their scenic tours and tour packages.
