Haunted Happenings: Where to party in Gastown this Halloween

 

As if Gastown isn’t awesome enough at Halloween with the suitably named Blood Alley, the weird and wonderful characters, and the monstrous amount of haunted old buildings, now there’s every reason to go a-haunting through the shadowed alleys of old Vancouver and to stay for the best parties in town. We have Lost Soul tours, Murder Mysteries, Halloween Trivia, Pirates, Mad Max, and The Great Gatsby, plus a steaming cauldron full of fetid, grotesque, and devilishly deviant celebrations rising from the dead cobblestones that lay beneath it all.

The Lost Souls of Gastown Tour
By Forbidden Vancouver

MON – SAT
8 PM – 9:30 PM
+ EXTRA HALLOWEEN DATES AND TIMES

$28

Buy tickets here.

As Halloween draws near, follow the lamplight of your guide into Vancouver’s earliest and most gruesome history. You’ll step inside a world of murder, revenge, and true grit in a dramatic retelling of Victorian Gastown’s earliest stories. Tales of deadly fire and smallpox emerge from the shadows as you venture through cobblestone streets to the shocking finale in this unique performance-theatre experience.

You’ll discover…

Gruesome stories of the Great Fire

The notorious ladies of the Gold Rush

A murder mystery unsolved to this day

The haunting legend of Gaoler’s Mews

The chilling history of George Vancouver

Stories of smallpox outbreaks & heartbreaks

Hotels and streets that haven’t changed from the 1800s

And more!

GASTOWN MURDER MYSTERY
By Vancouver Mysteries

Every night in October 2019 starting at 7 p.m.

Thirteen years ago Jimmy Capello was found dead in his downtown Vancouver apartment — strangled, poisoned, and stabbed. Now the Police Department has re-opened the cold case and it’s up to you to solve it.

Was the killer casino boss Greg Flament? World famous psychiatrist Susan Slater? Or party girl heiress Janet Evans? Armed with your detective kit, a map and a team of your closest friends, you’ll try to prove you have what it takes to work homicide in the big city.

Solve a murder mystery and earn your detective badge this Halloween!

Costumes encouraged! $32 per player plus fees and taxes.
Plan for 2 hours & 15 minutes of game time.
Game starts and ends near Waterfront Station.

Sign up in teams of 2-5 players to compete against others for the highest score!

Want to play during the day? Book your team of 2-5 players here.

Got at least 6 players? Get your own private game. Book here.

PRIZES AND A HAPPY HOUR JUST FOR OUR DETECTIVES Courtesy of Revel Room!

The Police Chief recognizes how hard you detectives work on these murder cases! Show your badge at Revel Room (238 Abbott Street) after the game for drink specials at Mystery Nights Happy Hour. Solving this cold case is reward enough, but each Mystery Night, the team with the highest score will also win a gift card to Revel Room!
