We continue our look into the 2009 Vancouver Halloween events season.
I’ve been to the Dunbar hounted house, I’ve been to Fright Nights but I’ve been told none of those places hold a torch to the Chilliwack haunted house. I’ll be checking it out this year so we’ll have to wait in see but if what all my friends say is true I’m in for the scare of my life.
Lisa and Gary Moran affectionately refer to their visitors as victims.
The Morans are the brains behind the Reapers Haunted Attraction. Located on Gibson Rd. in Chilliwack B.C. which initially started to keep their own and neighborhood children involved in a constructive activity. Over the past decade they have been told that their Halloween themed attraction rivals scare houses at Disneyland and other professional entertainment parks in the United States and Canada. It’s high praise they are proud of and each year strive to uphold and improve upon.
Each haunting season they wait for unsuspecting prey to enter their lair of terror. I have been there on nights when the screaming is so loud I found myself jumping just waiting in line for a ghoul dog at the concession. What makes this attraction so freaky compared to others, one I think the crew behind Reapers are (demented) and the set designs they have come up with are awesome. Both the Moran boys, James and Dave, get a kick out of scaring adults to the point where they are screaming like little kids. Now there is a whole crew of Halloween enthusiast’s that come out and volunteer their time and help to build on this event and the Moran’s are overwhelmed with their commitment and they make this event what it is.
So if you are looking for a real scare and have the guts, we will make sure you get the scare you deserve.
Reapers is not recommened for children under 8 years of age at night, but see our special daytime Boo tours.
