Feeling ghoulish from all of the house hunting? Market prices got you feeling like a zombie? Time to take your mind off of the grind and enjoy a different kind of real estate: the various haunted house events happening in Victoria right now! Here are a few to get you started:
1. Monsters Haunted House
Previously known as "Evil Acres," this infamous horror maze has moved to Ogden Point and taken on the slogan "Fear on the Pier." Now scarier than ever, these monsters are known for not holding back—their goal is to ramp up the terror until you're ready to quit! But don't take our word for it, you can check out their event page on Facebook.
This one will be in action until the end of October. If you do go and you live to tell the tale, tell us about your experience in the comments below!
2. Horror Escape
Inspired by horror movies like Saw, Horror Escape puts you in a terrifying room with friends where, in order to escape (and survive), you need to work together to solve riddles. Not everyone makes it, and from the sounds of it most people die trying!
This one typically runs all year round, though themes are always changing. Halloween is the perfect time to check out some of their horror-themed room puzzles.
3. Heritage Haunted House
This one's only happening on October 31st, and it's for a good cause: all proceeds go to the Help Fill a Dream Foundation. So take a break from the trick-or-treating and head over to the Heritage Haunted House between 5:30 PM – 9.30 PM, entry is by donation. You can get more info about this one from their Facebook page.
That's it, now get out there an enjoy! Just remember: haunted houses are sort of like open houses, just way scarier and far less friendly. If you survive any of these haunted houses, be sure to let us know in the comments!
