If you’re the kind of person who waits all year for Halloween, then this list is for you. You’ll find some of our favourite haunts (pun intended) to visit during the spooky season, including some that are appropriate for all ages.
Fear Farm, Bright
This farm has earned it’s name! Featuring 6 horrifying haunts, you’re in for a real scare. Their corn maze is called The Stalking Dead, the carnival renamed CarnEvil, while their Hillbilly Hike will take you deep into the woods, where you may never return.
New for 2018: There will be a beer tent offering local seasonal brews and Ontario wines.

The Phantom Farm and Haunted Hay ride, Cobourg
The Phantom Farm boasts a 4000 square foot haunted barn, a forbidden forest, and a graveyard where you are sure to find Harry the Hacker lurking about – so beware.
This farm is not intended for children 12 years old and under.
Martino Manor Haunted House & Corn Maze, Etobicoke
Located behind a famous Italian restaurant in Etobicoke, this haunted house opened in 2017 and has been called one of the spookiest experiences in Ontario. After you make your way through the house, there is a haunted corn maze waiting to take your experience to the next level.
Norwich Corn Maze, Norwich
This corn maze is a great attraction for the whole family. During the month of October, every weekend hosts a themed event in the maze. Kids will love the Pirates & Princesses Day, Superhero Day and Trick or Treat Day.
Alternating with the themed days, the corn maze also has a weekend where it becomes seriously haunted!
Saunders Farm, Ottawa
This farm puts on two different scary events – one for children and one for adults. During the day you can attend ‘Haunting Season’ at the farm, with over 35 attractions, live shows, a parade, hedge mazes, peddle carts, food booths, and a huge Corn Maze.
At night you will find what they call FrightFest Night, which is intended for an older age group. There are 6 different scary fright sites, as well as live shows, street theatre, and an assortment of food booths.

Talbotville Berry Farms, St. Thomas
On weekends you’ll find wagon rides and a haunted corn maze, where the slogan is: pay to get in, pray to get out.
Need we say more?
Kustermans Berry Farm, Mount Brydges
Presenting Kustermans After Dark, a festival that happens every Saturday and Sunday night until the end of October. You will find a flashlight maze, a coffin ride simulator and a very scary haunted barn.
If this sounds too frightening, not to worry! You can also visit Kustermans during the day and you will still find lots of Halloween fun, including the corn maze, a corn cannon, zip lines and a farm market.
Cannamore Orchard, Crysler
Known as Acres of Terror, Cannamore Orchard offers some very unique activities. During the day the attractions will be toned down and are kid friendly, but as soon as the sun goes down, the real monsters come out to play.
Start with a one of a kind wagon ride that features characters who will interact with you during the ride. Next up is the Spooky Village, an interactive Halloween themed village where you can shop for coffins and get your fortune told. Afterwards, try and make your way through the Fog Maze – an indoor maze pumped with thick fog and themed music.
Most of these events encourage you to get dressed up, so feel free to sport your favourite costume! Enjoy getting spooked and be on your best BOO-haviour – because the ghouls won’t be.
