The Comox Valley’s scariest Haunted House experience is returning to The LINC Youth Centre in Courtenay. May luck be yours this Halloween as you encounter creepy carnival entertainers, clowns, mystics, and other eerie sights and more on your tour.
Haunted House hours are Wednesday, Oct. 23 and Thursday, Oct. 24 from 6-8 p.m.; Friday, Oct. 25 and Saturday, Oct. 26 from 6-9 p.m.; Tuesday, Oct. 29, 6-8 p.m.; and Wednesday, Oct. 30, 6-9 p.m. On Thursday, Oct. 31, Halloween night, bring younger kids and easily-frightened adults for Half the Fright Night from 5-7 p.m.
Admission is $2 per person or $5 per family.
The Haunted House is planned and run by youth in Ghoul School, 8-18 years, with support from LINC staff. Over 30 local youth have been busy since September preparing for the event. They chose the theme, made the sets and props, and are preparing to play characters in the Haunted House. Many of the youth come back year after year to participate – some have been scaring in The LINC’s Haunted House for over four years.
Alexis Forbes, youth services co-ordinator at The LINC, promises this event will be the scariest ever.
“Our veteran ghouls, and batch of new recruits continue to expand their creativity and find new ways to creep out our visitors each year. This year is sure to provide thrills and chills for everyone,” said Forbes.
The Haunted House can be busy and sometimes has a line-up to enter. While you wait, enjoy The LINC and play ping pong, air hockey or dodgeball, and feast on Halloween treats. The youth appreciate your patience and hope their performance will be worth the wait!
The LINC is located at 300 Old Island Highway, near the Ryan Road intersection. For further information, call The LINC 250-334-8138 or Lewis Centre 250-338-5371 or visit www.courtenay.ca/haunted
