Many say this power house on Lakeshore is a part of one of the most haunted collection of buildings in Toronto. A terrifying experience awaits unsuspecting Torontonians and outsiders at the POWERHOUSE OF TERROR where legend has it ghosts linger in what is the most haunted group of buildings in Toronto. This ongoing charity haunt which opened this year on October 13th and hosting it’s last haunt of the year today on Halloween! Different than most attractions of it’s kind because this Haunt support’s local at-risk youth while bringing serious chills and thrills to Toronto. The Powerhouse was constructed in 1936, in Colonel Samuel Smith Park, Lakeshore. Once steam pushed these mighty turbines to make electricity, but now THE POWERHOUSE OF TERROR is an evil inferno powered by FEAR. Three new haunted attractions will reduce you to a pathetic quivering mass of fright.

• 3.Acting and On-site Support.
Powerhouse of Terror is like being in a scary movie. As you walk through a maze, monsters await around every corner. This is Toronto’s scariest, most terrifying Halloween attraction. The theme park is located in the Power House at Kipling, just south of Lakeshore. Expect professionally trained monsters in three new attractions. CarnEvil Manor – Where all the carnival workers live. Quarantine – Zombie Apocalypse. Insidious – Fear not the darkness, but what lies within it! Local students and at risk youth will put on a great production for this very worthy cause.

CarnEvil Manor isn’t your average carnival, this is where the carnies, the clowns and all the distortions of nature live…. but they do not like to be disturbed. Visitors beware! This Manor has deep seeded secrets which you may uncover during your visit and challenge your perception of what is real. Things are not what they seem with jaw dropping performances and illusions that will play with your senses and make your escape extremely difficult.
Quarantine– “The Zombie apocalypse” is a sick and twisted maze of carnage where zombies have taken residences. The Z1 virus is spreading and the zombies here are kept secret from the public…until now. Before they feast on your mortal soul, you must fight for your survival in hopes that the military will soon come to your rescue.
Insidious – Def. ‘Proceeding in a gradual, subtle way, but with harmful effects.’ Inspired by the movie, take this journey into the dark world of “the Further”. Enter a dimension where reality as you know it will cease to exist. Afraid of the Dark? You should be!!!
