A popular Halloween attraction at an outdoor adventure park in Kelowna has had its opening date postponed due to the snowy conditions.

Myra Canyon Adventure Park owner Greg Fedoriuk said they were set to open the annual Halloween Scare Park today, Oct. 23, but the weather is dampening efforts.

The park, located on June Springs Road in Kelowna, is big enough and outdoors to allow for social distancing measures, Fedoriuk said, but driving conditions are not safe due to the snowy weather. The event has been held in Kelowna for the last three years.

The Halloween Scare Park will be be open tomorrow and Sunday starting at 5:30 p.m., and from Oct. 29 to Nov. 1.

Tickets can be purchased online or at the location, but customers who already had tickets for tonight will be diverted to different days.

The large park, acting like a haunted forest, takes viewers on a path which takes about a half-hour to 45 minutes to complete, Fedoriuk said, who didn't want to give out details of what it will look like to prevent from spoiling the surprise.

Fedoriuk aims for the event to be “scary fun.” Patrons can also request the level of fear they want to experience.

“I love Halloween, it’s my favourite holiday every year. It’s the one event every year where no matter how old you are or young you are you get the same thing out of it. You get to pretend as an adult and as a kid,” he said.

Tickets are $25 per person plus tax.
