Wow, What a weekend !


Murray’s Maze is always a popular place http://www.boonstrafarms.com/maze.asp. I learned a couple things as I was checking their website to write this blog. I didn’t know that they had a smaller maze for the littler kids and I also did not know that the full maze was so big – 10 acres to be exact. There is an aerial picture of the this year’s maze and also the mazes of Halloween’s past. Quite the sight to see.


Six Pines Ranch is another place that goes all out and then some for Halloween. They also have non scary options for littler kids and what sounds like some reallly realllly scary options for the big kids. This is how their website answers the question – Is it really scary

But is it really scary?

How scared you get is up to you. Fear is relative. We do our part by providing hands down one of the scariest Halloween attractions in Manitoba. Of course everyone has their own particular fear threshold. During the daytime haunt it is somewhat tamed down for the families, but at night time… the best answer we can give is 99% of the people who come out the back door are screaming. Repeat customer rate is very high. Being scared is fun!”


Safeway Boo at the Zoo – This is always a popular place to be this time of year too. I am sure if our warm fall weather continues there will be lots of people Booing at the Zoo  http://www.zoosociety.com/specialevents_boo.asp

I am sure there are a lot more Halloween activities happening so if you know of some that I have missed please let me know. And if you happen to check out one of these places let us hear what your thoughts are? Did your family have a good time? Would you tell a friend to go?
