If you are looking for some “spine-tingling fun” this Halloween season, one haunted house to to add to your list is the Gordon Head Haunted Manor!
This exhibit features a Treasure Island-themed animatronic yard display, that is sure to get kids of all ages into the Halloween spirit.
- This FREE Bates Motel-inspired haunted house in Saanich is a Halloween must-see
- One of Victoria’s scariest haunted houses is coming back this year with a new theme
Over the past 15 years, this homemade haunted house has grown and developed at the hands of production master Keith Boschma, who has dedicated hours into the creation of props, including animatronics, pirate ship façade, cannon blasts, as well as programming behind the scenes.
The yard display is filled with a life-sized animated 3D skeleton crew that tells tales of murderous pirates, mutiny, and treasure.
The show runs between 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. each night until Halloween on Thursday and lasts roughly 12 to 15 minutes.
Entry is by donation with 100% of proceeds going towards supporting Victoria Hospice.
Boschma’s sister succumbed to a brain tumour 13 years ago, and his brother passed away a year later from colon cancer.
These tragic events hit the family hard, but they decided to redirect their grief and put all their efforts into this Halloween fundraiser.
