Putting the “oo” in East Sooke… There is a one acre property in East Sooke that is home to a unique yearly haunted attraction. This is not your everyday haunted house, Eerie Acres takes you on a 20 minute tour through the house, the woods, full scale effects, and a cemetery with many creatures roaming throughout.
Founders Lindsay and Parry Trowell have been operating the full tour for 9 years now, with the help of up to 21 volunteers each night.
“People come from as far as Oak Bay and Sidney to have some Halloween fun for a worthwhile cause. Every year we get bigger and better, adding more stations and effects to our haunt”
What sets us apart from the other haunts, is that we provide guided tours for all ages, thrill seekers, and even the faint of heart. We radio ahead to our volunteers and customize each tour based on the participants scare level.”
They also provide bail out areas for chickens and children at any time throughout the tour.
Last year, there were over 500 people through the attraction in three nights, and the Trowells’ donate a large portion of proceeds to local charities in need, as well as a large collection of non-perishables for the Sooke Food Bank.
“We try to make it affordable for groups of people and families looking for a fun night out. This year we are donating proceeds to the Youth in Care Network. There is a suggested $4 dollar donation per person or a non-perishable food item per person. ”
Eerie Acres is sure to be a success again this year. There is lots of parking along the streets, and rain shelters set up for waiting victims. Be sure to bring good shoes, and a jacket.
