Newfoundland weather can be hard to predict, but the tour will go ahead regardless of clear skies, drizzle, cold, and especially fog! Dress appropriately, wear comfortable walking shoes, and come with a willingness to believe. The stories you will hear, no matter how horrific, are all true...
Please remember to keep St. John's clean! Leave any trash in appropriate litter bins.
Is the Haunted Hike suitable for children?
The Haunted Hike does contain stories that are frightening, or else it wouldn't be the Haunted Hike! As a result, it may not be suitable for young children. While a general recommendation may be that the Hike is suitable for children over the age of 8, parents or guardians are encouraged to talk to their kids beforehand and to make sure they are up for a night of ghoulish tales. After that, if you have to ask, "Is my child ready for this?" then the answer is probably no. Of the two tours, the "Ghosties and Ghoulies" tour is more family friendly.
Pricing and Family Rates
The ticket price is $10 per person, ($5 for kids 12 and under) There is no need to book in advance for a regular night tour, tickets are cash sale only. Just show up, and pay your ghoulish guide at the start of the tour.
