The Haunted Adventure FAQ
What is the Haunted Halloween Adventure?
You will learn archery. You will get a life force belt with hit points. You will run through the woods while monsters chase you...Shoot them to stay safe, otherwise, they will take your hit points. Find chests with more arrows and more hit points. Kill the monsters, save the villagers, drink beer. You get it.
Is the Event Outdoors?
The Tavern is sheltered and heated. Alot of the characters also have tented areas to stay dry in, however, you will be moving from tent to tent to complete your quests. Please dress ready for adventure.
Is There Free Parking?
What Happens If It Rains?
The brave fear not the rain. We have undercover areas and the tavern will be dry comfortable and flowing with mead.
The adventure will proceed, rain or shine.
What Happens If I Come Late?
A wizard is never late (but you can come early and gossip with Boorin at the tavern). Last groups goes through at 8 pm. If you show up at 8:55 pm and there are groups ahead of you, we cannot guarantee you will make it through.
What Is the Wait Like?
You can book a time slot when you purchase your ticket and simply arrive during your purchased ticket time. Then you wander about finding quests and adventures. There may be people ahead of you for certain quest, which may mean a little wait, but you can always go on another adventure and come back later. Plenty of quests to complete. Or grab a refreshing ale from our tavern.
What If I’ve Never Fired a Bow Before?
That's ok. Even Legolas had to start somewhere. We have an amazing team of skilled archers to teach you how to operate a bow and arrow.
Can I bring my own weapons?
No. For safety reasons, all weapons distributed will be from The Empty Chest.
Is it safe?
Absolutely. All participants will wear safety masks. The arrows have padded tips and measures have been put in place to ensure everyone's safety.

Likely. The sun sets around six pm in October, however you can book the five PM time slot here.
Can I Take Videos and Pictures?
No (with a little yes). You can take photos of most everything you see, we just ask that you don't ruin any surprises for other people and respect the actors.
What Should I Wear?
No flip flops. It's muddy. It's wet. It's nature. Dress like you live in Rain-couver. It's better to over prepare.
