About The Haunted House Of Horrors (2009-2012)
The Haunted House Of Horrors operated in Guelph, Ontario from 2009-2010 on Gordon Street and during 2011 on Stone Road. For the 2012 season this attraction was moved to Fairview Park Mall in Kitchener. Most haunted house afficianados would agree that the Haunted House Of Horrors was one of the most elaborate Halloween attractions in Ontario.
This attraction, like many others started as a small home haunt. However during 2009 and 2010 it occupied one of the most derelict and decrepit pieces of real estate in Guelph, the old DeVos butcher shop. This home with attached butcher shop was constructed in 1955 and still stands today as a memory of once was rural Guelph. Patrons of the "Guelph Haunt" could walk through this old home and butcher shop and take in the sights, sounds and REAL smells of a building getting close to ruin. Now surrounded by new development, this property will soon be converted into townhouses and condos. We hope the future residents don't find out what actually happened at this sinister place of horror!
During 2011 and 2012 Tthe Haunted House Of Horrors went mobile and was also known as the "True Fear Funeral Home". It featured a very detailed 19th century funeral parlor theme. During the experience you would walk through the attraction that was considered by many to be one of the most realistic and most detailed haunted house in Ontario. You began your journey through our decrepit Victorian funeral home, eventually making a wrong turn into the underbelly where you will navigate your way through a series of horrific scenes. Lastly you would journey through "The Crypt" which features dark caves, rotting corpses and more surprises that anyone should really cram into such a claustrophic space.
One of the most important elements of the Haunted House of Horrors was our all-star cast of "fear volunteers". These scare actors gave it their all to inflict true fear into as many people as possible. The screams could be heard from great distances, and not everyone who walked through the attraction kept all their fluids to themselves. You know you are doing a good job when you make someone pee :-).
This mobile attraction was aquired by Fear Farm in 2013 (previously Snyders Fear Farm) so can still be experienced to its fullest at its new location as part of the Snyders Family Farm attraction. It joins their event to now be the biggest in the region, featuring multiple haunted houses, a corn maze and a haunted hay ride. It's definitely worth attending!
