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, 1.75 km self-guided walking tour commencing in the lower gardens of Casa Loma and winding its way through the castles tunnels and darkest spaces never before open to the public.

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.

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

Though the audience is given no programme and there is no speaking from either the actors or audience.  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.

    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.
