Toronto Horror Hallways (THH) is a relatively new haunting experience in Toronto, described as “a haunted house that will leave you trembling with fear” and “the scariest haunted house in the GTA.” These haunted hallway doors opened as recently as 2016 and while the attraction is relatively new to the city, it promises “one incredibly scary and dark maze with loads of demons around every corner,” says Corey Dixon, the attraction’s manager. “Our staff are dedicated to their job,” Dixon ensures. Their job? Scaring your pants off, of course!
Enter the depths of Hell…
“Explore this terrifying, seemingly never-ending maze of horror and be ready to tremble in complete darkness and thrilled by our devil’s work!”
We wanted to know what separates Toronto Horror Hallways from other haunted experiences; “THH promises an attraction that targets peoples phobias vs. just another bloody and gory maze,” Corey Dixon exclaims, “we all love Halloween very much!” When asked if THH taps into the gore and guts of Horror at all, Corey answered “Yes, we do have some scenes that are bloody and gory, but our attraction is filled with dark places, tight spaces and loads of intense scares!” When asked about the scare actors, Corey seemed puzzled… “Scare actors? We only have real ghosts and demons in our maze!”
With the entire walkthrough lasting “roughly 10-15 mins,” Corey mentions how “some people don’t even make it down the first hallway! Loads of people have chickened out of this experience!”
The question everyone might be wondering is ‘how safe is this experience?’ given the province-wide health and safety regulations put in place due to Covid-19, so what are the measures Toronto Horror Hallways has taken this year to ensure the safety of both the staff and patrons?
“We’ve added many safety measures due to Covid-19,” Corey says. Here’s a full list:
- All our crew go through a medical assessment prior to starting shifts (this is done by a medical office we have set up on-site).
- All guests must sanitize their hands prior to entering our facility.
- All guests are required to wear a mask or face covering at all times.
- All guests are required to go through a touch-free temp check to ensure they do not have a fever.
- All guests are required to give their first and last name along with a contact number for tracing purposes.
- Extra sanitization routines for props and certain areas of the maze.
“Yes, we all dislike having all the protocols, but this must be done to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone that visits our attraction,” Corey says. “As well as our staff!
We are extremely excited about this year’s Toronto Horror Hallways – it’s bigger and better than ever before!”
