Twist your horror dial to 11

Here's a list of spooky Halloween events in Surrey and North Delta.

Potters House of Horrors has a new house of haunt in operation, with no anesthetic. So pick your poison: Sikness (sic) or 10,000 Screams. Both places will twist the horror dial to 11. The terror is on now and goes from 5-10 p.m. every night until Oct. 31 at 12530 72 Ave. The quieter witching hours for the young and squeamish are 5-6:30 p.m. Tickets are available online at


• The Haunted Forest Scream Train runs Oct. 17-31 from 6:30-10 p.m. at Bear Creek Park, 13750 88 Ave. The forest comes alive with ghosts and ghouls intent on scaring you amidst creepy sounds and special effects. Chainsaw Charlie is back, and you may run into the walking dead who roam the platform. Tickets are $9.50 plus tax for adults and children.


Historic Stewart Farm (13723 Crescent Rd.) is hosting two events for Halloween. On Oct. 18 from 6-8 p.m., settle in with popcorn and hot chocolate for Scary Movie Classics: Discover the earliest horror movies from 1897-1920, then brace yourself for the first zombie movie ever made: White Zombie (1932). The cost is $5.25 (13 years to adults). Must pre-register at 604-592-6956. On Oct. 25, the farm will be taken over by ghosts. Wear your costumes for a bewitching adventure. Events are 3-4 p.m. for those aged five to seven, or 6:30-8 p.m. for those aged 7-11. The cost is $15. Must pre-register at 604-592-6956.


Thrill the World Surrey wants you to dress like a zombie for a world record attempt at the most people re-creating Michael Jackson’s Thriller dance. The event takes place Oct. 25 from 12:30-3:30 p.m. at the Cloverdale Youth Park, 6188 176 St. Thrill time is 3p.m. sharp. For more details, visit


Pumpkin Power takes place Oct. 25 from 12-2 p.m. at the Surrey Museum, 17710 56A Ave. Design a take-home Jack O’Lantern, make spooky crafts, do a Halloween scavenger hunt in the exhibit galleries and enjoy cookies and hot chocolate before you participate in the Cloverdale Halloween Costume Parade (see below). For all ages, by donation.


• The Cloverdale Halloween Costume Parade takes place Oct. 25 at the Surrey Museum Plaza (17710 56A Ave.) Registration begins at noon. After the group photo at 2 p.m., the crowd will be organized into three groups that will trick-or treat-throughout downtown Cloverdale, the Brick Yard Station and Clover Square Village mall.


• Phillip’s third-annual Haunted Halloween takes place on Oct. 31 at 7408 118 St. in North Delta. This has been weeks in the making, and on Halloween night, everyone is invited to visit and meet with the ghouls and zombies.


• Come to the “Carnevil” when the sun goes down on Oct. 31 at 6970 190 St in Clayton Heights. Haunted house, treats, coffee, hot chocolate, DJ music and popcorn for sale by donation. This seventh-annual event is a fundraiser for the B.C. Children’s Hospital Foundation.


• Headshots are recommended at The Zombie Combat Zone, at Semiahmoo Park, 15782 Marine Dr., White Rock. It’s a 30-minute interactive experience that lets you hunt zombies through the dark forest of the after-hours, on Thursdays and Fridays from dusk to 1 a.m. This is a paintball event for groups up to 10. The cost is $499, so the more people booked, the less expensive it is. Bookings are mandatory at
