2. The Route 6 Motel – Haunted House
The Route 6 Motel is reported to be so scary that they have a safe-word. It was a real motel from 1955 to the mid-1970’s when ‘accidents’ and disappearances forced the owner to close it. It stood empty for 40 years, but it is now part of the Cavendish Beach Adventure Zone. You can crawl, walk or sprint through the pitch-black Route 6 Motel’s haunted halls or if you’re too scared, stop and scream “check out!” three times and a staff member will help you get out of the haunted hotel.

For a spooking good time this Halloween, gather up a group of ghouls and head out to visit the Haunted Mansion – PEI’s largest, scariest haunted house! Children & the faint of heart should come during the daylight hours before our spooks come out.
In the late 1890’s, Dr. Jack built this elaborate mansion as a home and a hotel for weary travelers after leaving his home in London. He brought the feel of old London with him in the Tudor style of his architecture and in the recreated streets of London deep in the cellars beneath the mansion. His elaborate gardens drew visitors from far and wide to Kensington, but a sinister rumor began to circulate hinting of a dark side to the doctor.
