Events Description


Captain Morgan Presents Legends of Horror at Casa Loma

An immersive theatrical interpretation of all of the classic horror figures as we lead our audience through a one hour, 2 km self-guided walking tour commencing in the lower gardens of Casa Loma and winding its way through the castles tunnels and darkest spaces. The crescendo of the experience is a dramatic 3D imagery projection on the exterior of the castle, designed to excite even the most skeptical of guests this Halloween season.

Throughout the over 1 hour experience, the audience is immersed in a variety of theatrically designed sets in gardens and chambers below the castle. Each of these introducing characters in the environmental theatre, in which the physical location, rather than being a traditional playhouse, creates the actual setting. The traditional set change does not exist but is created by having the audience move on to the next scene. A crescendo of the production is the 3D projection on the exterior of the castle which brings the characters of the storyline and the walls of the castle to life.

The theatrical action, incorporates the most recognized characters of the horror genre immersed in their associated environments. These characters are brought to life by over 70 actors and feature beautifully created sets and vignettes from Dracula rising from his crypt, to the Creature from the Black Lagoon slithering in the swamp, the Phantom of the Opera with his captive in the bowels of the boiler room and a final tribute to one of the greatest monsters of all time; celebrating the 200 anniversary of its creation. The production leads its audience on a macabre chase for love and immortality.

Legends is set on the 5 acre grounds of Casa Loma and in the depths of the castles 90,000 square foot structure. Though the audience is given no programme and there is no speaking from either the actors or audience. The actors and their environment all adopt the dress, decor, and aesthetic style of the classic horror novels, inspired by the shadowy and anxious atmosphere of film noir. The actors elaborate masks and costumes and their performance in passionate group settings, solitary scenes and on occasion choreographed dances all to provoke thought and personal interpretation of the experience.

    I was very disappointed with this! I went in thinking that it would be a guided tour by Dracula ( because why else would you have to pick a time slot) learning about the history and the story along the way ( as the website would have you believe )

    When we got there we were told to just “Go ahead to the top” so we started walking through the gardens. The costumes were really good and the decorations were amazing. But I didnt get the story from this. When we got to the top we were told to just keep going into the Castle, and ended up at a bar.

    Continue on they said – to the tunnel. The tunnel was pretty neat, but then we came out and were were done. All in all it only took about 20 mins. Also, not once did we see Dracula or Frankenstein.

    On one hand the decoration were amazing and the costumes really good. But for 45$ I think it was a waste. How was this supposed to last an hour?

    I would have to agree with the lady above saying that this is a massive disappointment here I was led to believe that I would be guided through the “bowels” of Casa Loma but yet I came out with little to no fecal matter visible on my clothing whatsoever. Yes the decorations were great and the costumes are amazing but yet I was still very disappointed in the lack excrement lining the bowels of Casa Loma. Severely disappointed

    This was a complete waste of time and money as well as complete false advertising. The site says Dracula will take you on the tour. No Dracula and no tour. What about Frankenstein ? It makes it seem as if that’s the main attraction, saying it’s gonna be a celebration of the 200th anniversary of the book. Well there was no Frankenstein at all. An hour and a half ? It took us less than 20 minutes. I drove my family all the way from Niagara Falls for this and for that much money ?

    From reading other reviews the most common complaint I noticed was that the event is too short – and it is for the price, however when you really think about the time and effort that was put into the displays and costumes you can understand why the price is what it is. I also believe that the price determines the customer group which keeps the event in control. Since the event is sponsored by Captain Morgan I would recommend going with a large group of pub friends so you can extend the experience by spending some time in the bar that is provided half way through for food and drinks. The bar had a great feel to it and looked like a fun atmosphere. I did not stop long at the bar and it took me just over an hour to complete. Since it is dark and hard to see you need to take some time looking at the all displays, decorations, characters and costumes along the walk that meanders through the outside gardens into the castle, then through the tunnels to the stables and coach house. From what I saw many people rushed through and were probably very surprised when they reached the end in less than half an hour. This is really a haunted house experience and is not a guided tour at all, and the Horror Legends skits are really only visual re-enactments so there is absolutely no talking involved. Note: I purchases online tickets through the Casa Loma website a few hours before and they were discounted to about $35. I also noticed groupon tickets for $30 but these were only for select times. Even though our tickets were for 10:30 they let us in just after 10pm but I assume this would depend on the crowds – the benefit of having tickets in advance is that you bypass any line up. Overall this is an interesting Halloween experience but I have to admit that neither me or my friend were very scared – try to keep a gap between you and the other people on the walk so that the actors have a chance to try and scare you. I would probably go again next year if I knew there would be different displays just for the visual experience. We also parked for free on the side street by Tim Hortons off of Davenport Rd.

    Not sure of the people that had bad reviews. I had a fantastic time. I went with my daughters and we three thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The costumes were spectacular. The work done on the gardens for the initial part of the tour was brilliant. Kudos to Liberty Entertainment group. We took our time, and enjoyed all the scenes and attractions throughout. We kept our spacing and even let others ‘rush’ ahead of us. The tunnels were done up in dungeon style…quite different from what I remember as a young child on the school tours. Spooky and eerie….the smoke effect and the natural smell of the damp tunnels gave a very particular odour that one would smell at say a concert?! ? It is a self guided tour, but not led by Dracula. The finale has a skit with Dracula and his side kick…fun all around. In comparison, much better than Halloween Haunt at Wonderland for the effects and actors, and not as pitch black terrifying as Nightmares or Screamers. Go with an open mind to have fun, be friendly and considerate to everyone there…you’ll have a better experience. 5 stars to all the actors and security people. Great job!!!!

    Decorations were great, actors were good but not worth the long drive and slow traffic to get there. We arrived at 6:20 for the 6:30pm tour, with tickets in hand and bursting bladders and we waited for over 25 minutes in a huge line to later find out ticket holders could go to the front of the line. They did not have washroom to use except for the halfway point once you were admitted in. Staff were rude and when you asked a question they yelled at you to get in line. The walk through was too short, so not worth the gas, parking fee and effort. There was also lots of stairs and few handrails. You couldn’t take your time going through because so many people were coming up behind you. I know this was the first year so hopefully the next year will be better.

    We were so excited to hear Casa Loma was having a Halloween event. We bought tickets ahead of time, thankfully! The entry process for this event was extremely unorganized and dangerous. Hundreds of people waiting on a sidewalk, next to a hillside is a recipie for disaster. This was advertised as a guided tour…there was no guide! The outdoor part of the event was good. Lots of great effects and shock factors. However, we did not enjoy the indoor section nearly as much. If you are claustrophobic this may it be the place for you…speaking from experience. There were way too many people in those tunnels. And at one point the air quality was not great, with all the special effects. There are areas for improvement but Given the fact this is the first year…it was a good effort.

    Went for Legends of Horror haunted house. Absolutely the worst haunted house I have ever been to. The scariest part was the $40 admission. The props and effects were beautiful but thats all there was to it. There were long stretches where nothing happened, a lot of missed opportunity to be scary and fun. My friends and I joked how everyone must’ve been on their lunch break because we barely saw any of the characters indicated on their site. Don’t waste your time or money on this!

    I went with a group of 5 and we all rated this a 10/10 experience. The decorations, costumes and characters were amazing… a lot of work was put into the experience. We marvelled at the masterpiece of all the spooky decorations.
    I didn’t however like the closterphobia of the black blowup tube that you go through (right before you get to the pub). It was much too narrow and lacked air ventilation.
