Haunted Calgary offers many frightful surprises

The year is 1692, the place, Salem, Massachusetts. A woman named Bathsheba Moore lived on the fringes of the town; everyone thought she was insane.

Bathsheba, ostracized by the townsfolk, turned to witchcraft and the occult for companionship. Her powers grew stronger as she embraced the dark arts – it was then that she knew she had to take back the town.

When she’s done with it, Salem will never be the same.

That’s the backstory behind Haunted Calgary, the most ghoulish and hair-raising haunted attraction you’ll come across this Halloween. It’s so scary, in fact, that it isn’t recommended for anyone under the age of 14.

The attraction utilizes actors to add a depth of fright that feels real. For those who are scared easily, they also have “low scare” hours on October 30, 31, and November 1 from 2 to 4 p.m. where few or no actors are used and there’s more light.

Entrance is by-donation, which doesn’t just mean money – you can donate food, dog food, or cat litter as well. The suggested cash donation is 10 dollars.

Whether you choose the low scare option or the real deal, you’ll be sure to have a thrill at Haunted Calgary’s Coven attraction.
