Get Spooked: 10 Saskatchewan Halloween Haunts to Visit in 2021

October 14, 2021

It sure hasn’t felt like it lately but it’s almost Halloween time in Saskatchewan and that means time to deck the house with bones and gory. 

Decorating our house for Halloween is second only to Christmas and it’s a family affair.

Building custom tombstones last year was a great pandemic project to keep the kids engaged and there was no shortage of inspiration in the community surrounding us.

Halloween Graveyard

Across the province each year, local businesses and residents take skeletons out of their closets and painstakingly create experiences to help us get our spook on.  Here’s a few that are creeping it real if you’re looking for a fright this fall.

City Scares


  • As a family always looking for things to do, driving around to take in the many local Halloween walk-through yard displays has become an annual tradition. It’s a Covid-friendly activity and the creativity of locals is sure to leave a smile.

2- Al Benesocky’s Shock House – Regina and Yorkton, SK

  • Housed in the old Sears warehouse which is rumoured to have its own authentic resident ghosts, this one’s not for the faint of heart and is a favourite rite of passage for the teens in our family (Am I old enough for Shock House yet Mom?). One year we stood in line for hours only to have our daughter race through screaming in under 5 minutes. We have a new teen in our house so guess what’s on the slate this year… (insert evil laugh).

Haunted Hikes

3- Trail of Terror – Near Estevan, SK

  • A haunted jaunt for the younger crowd put on by Southern Plains Co-op Limited. Take a walk through Woodlawn Regional Park with zombies, ghosts and scary creatures.

4- Halloween Terror Trail – Pike Lake, SK

  • A cast of characters lurk in the forest waiting to give you nightmares. This one’s new this year so the reviews are not yet in, but I heard there are clowns…. (shivers). 

Fearful Farms

5- Grotto Gardens Haunted Farm – Near Maple Creek, SK 

  • This family farm is full of fun things to do all fall long, but the last week of October it gears up for Halloween. Night frights for the older crowd, and day versions sans actors for the littles. 

6- Haunted House & Corn Maze at Paintball Paradise Prince Albert – Near Prince Albert, SK

  • Horror movies taught us that corn has a creepy side so it’s not hard to imagine those fun daytime mazes turning down right ear-y when the sun goes down.  Prince Albert Paintball offers a haunted house and haunted maze that they promise gets scarier as the night goes on. 

7- Berry Barn Haunted House – Near Saskatoon, SK

  • Ghost and goblins have taken over the greenhouse at the much-loved local Berry Barn!   While you’re there, pick out a pumpkin to carve from their Pumpkin Patch and keep the fun going after you leave.

Small Town Terrors

8- Haunted Trains – Wakaw, SK

  • Spend the afternoon with Wheatland Express on a trip filled with Halloween-themed family entertainment or an interactive experience that challenges guests to escape a headless train conductor. 

9- Nightmare Avenue Haunted House – Neuanlage, SK

  • A short drive from Saskatoon, this terror promises the scariest experience you can ever imagine, and yes, it gets better and better each year.

10- Haunted Town of Lil sur mur – Near Swift Current, SK

  • You can ride the Ghoul Bus on a guided tour through an entire haunted town filled with creepy characters. Don’t wait to get your tickets, this one sold out last year.

Whether you’ve got spirit or spirits this Halloween, it’s a holiday with something for everyone young and old. So, let’s get out the coffins and cobwebs and get this party startled!
