Haunted Houses

Carnevil Haunted House - Saanich
This 6,000 square foot show of horrors is a mainstay of Galey Farm’s Festival of Fear Halloween festivities, and this year it includes new features plus three “chicken” exits in the event things get a little …uncomfortable.

Galey Farms, 4150 Blenkinsop Road
October 13-31 | Mon-Sun: 6PM - 10PM

Evil Acres - North Saanich
Evil Acres is now Monsters Haunted House - Fear on the Pier and is no longer located in North Saanich. The best thing is, no more muddy fields! See the entry for Monsters House (below) for more information.

Haunted House - Saanich
Galey Farms has a haunted house setup specifically for children. It’s not quite as terror inducing as the Carnevil Haunted House, but it’ll spook the kids!

Monsters House - Fear on the Pier - Victoria
James Bay’s Ogden Point is transformed into a haunted house full of real actors who’ll appear just when you least expect it.
