Curious Calgarians will have a chance to learn about the ghostly figures that haunt their city by taking a Heritage Park Ghost Tour this spring.
The tours will run every Wednesday for the month of March – the same tours were run around this time last year and over the past two Halloweens, with tickets selling out fast.
Luckily for you, tickets for this spring’s tours became available just this week, meaning you’re getting the jump on the rest of the city… if you act fast.
- The Northern Lights will be dimmer for the next decade
- The City of Calgary is selling off court seizures including cars and bikes
- You can climb Calgary Tower’s 802 steps as a work out this March
Each tour is 90 minutes long and will take attendees through the alleyways and streets of the Historical Village and verse them in various spooky stories that will make their skin crawl.
They depart from Gasoline Alley at 7 and 7:30 pm, though the truly terrified would be wise to choose the earlier, brighter tour.
The Heritage Park website even offers a warning based on the mature content of the tour: “This tour is not recommended for guests under the age of 16. Infants and small children are strongly discouraged.”
However, the organizers have taken the little ones into consideration this year, offering a new Family-Friendly Ghost Tour for families with young children. These tours will run on March 27, April 3, and April 10 and begin during the brighter hour of 6 pm.
So, think you’re brave enough?
