Halloween is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate it than with a haunted house.
But the city of Drummondville is taking the haunted house tradition to a whole new level.
Instead of just a spooky home, they put together an entire village.
For the last nine years, Le Village Québécois d’Antan in Drummondville, transforms into three kilometres of spookiness.
At every turn, there’s something jumping out to scare you.
From hanging body parts to bloody characters and even a few dead bodies.
Let’s just say there’s no end to what this haunted village can do.
“We’re transforming each house into a haunted house and also we have outside trails, we have a church,” general manager Eric Verreault said.”So there’s 26 places for people to be scared.”
That’s 26 historical buildings that each have a different scary theme.
Sixteen for adults and 10 for children.
The sites range from a scary circus, to a morgue, to a haunted hotel that includes an elevator.
But that’s not all.
The village expects to welcome around 60,000 people over the 13 evenings they’re open to the public this Halloween season.
That’s an average of 4,600 visitors a day.
“Imagine at night, there’s the atmosphere, there’s music, there’s lanterns, it’s dark, there’s actors in the streets,” Verreault explained. “It’s a very fun event and people like it very much.”
If you want to test it out yourself, the village recommends that you call ahead of time to make reservations because spaces are limited.
The village runs until Nov. 5 and prices vary from $16 to $20.
