Markham’s Best Residential Haunted House - Featuring ‘CarnEVIL’, ‘The Playroom’, ‘Zombie Apocalypse’, ‘Mad Science’, ‘Lockdown’, and more.

This event is one of a kind. Many of the props are hand made, designed, engineered and sculpted from scratch. You will see things here that you’ll not see anywhere else. The numbers of attendees and media coverage increases every year. We usually have over 1500 visitors on Halloween night alone.

Most importantly we collect money for the SickKids Foundation (The Hospital for SickKids). 100% of donations go to the foundation. This is an eagerly awaited charity and community event that engages our entire neighbourhood.

We will be open and operational from October 22nd to the 31st, It goes without saying that the more coverage, the better chances we have of maximizing donations.

Join the thousands who have already been our guests, Endless scares, Endless fun.

Stop by for a scare, or a laugh and make a donation for a worthwhile cause!
