Startling shrieks and ominous sounds lurk in the background as you and your group wind through the dark, brooding night... apprehension grows... then suddenly, you see a ghastly figure in the corner of your eye... you begin to tremble..."AAHHHH!" - a bloodcurdling scream right beside you! Who is it? What is it? Hairs tingle on the back of your neck...what's next? What's happening???

Welcome to... Haunted Fort Night! It's October Halloween fun at Fort William Historical Park.

This is the stage set each year for what has become one of the most popular Halloween events in Thunder Bay  and all of Northwest Ontario. Frightening scenarios formulated by devious minds transform Fort William Historical Park into a chillingly haunted territory at night. This haunted Halloween walk takes visitors on eerie tours of a dark, nightmarish fur trading post where startling incidents begin to happen along the way...

Guided Nightly Tours with a Twist

The light from the lantern held by a costumed guide bobs ahead in the dark. Your group weaves its way through the inky blackness, wandering about, swathed in darkness. You pass through a series of dimly lit buildings, populated by odd, creepy characters, all with strange stories to tell.

Anyone who loves a hair-raising scare will enjoy the Haunted Fort Night experience! Frightening screams, piercing sounds, and creepy bumps in the night are to be expected. However, due to startling scenes, the Haunted Fort Night is not recommended for children under age 12 (Adult Only tours are also available).
