Caravan Farm Theatre gearing-up for 'even scarier' Walk of Terror

The event may be different from previous years, but Armstrong's Caravan Farm Theatre is still promising this year's Walk of Terror will be equally, if not scarier than ever. The North Okanagan theatre group is forging ahead with a COVID-friendly version of its very popular Walk of Terror.

The event may be different from previous years, but Armstrong's Caravan Farm Theatre is still promising this year's Walk of Terror will be equally, if not scarier than ever.

The North Okanagan theatre group is forging ahead with a COVID-friendly version of its very popular Walk of Terror.

While the Halloween event would normally involve up to 100 volunteers, a live 10-piece band, a circus troupe and draw 1,000 people a night, this year's event is moving in a different direction.

"We're doing quite a pivot to rely on high-end technology to create a really spooky frightening gorgeous walk," farm theatre director Estelle Shook said. "The audience masks up and walks through a beautiful 20 minutes woodsy night time forest scape."

Shook is still ironing out the precise details of the spooky event but said while the real-life ghost and ghouls may have been replaced, what's install will be equally as exciting.

"It will be scarier," she says.

With a maximum of 50 people per night, what traditionally ran over two-nights and saw 1,000 people show up, will now run over nine nights.

Shook said while revenue is tight, the theatre company felt a responsibility to be there for the community and asked, "what does the community need and how can we provide it?"

To be scared, was obviously the answer.

The Caravan Farm Theatre is hoping to release full details of the Walk of Terror Sept. 23. For more information go to the theatre's website here.
