We are down to our final few shows – don’t miss out! Join us at Ottawa’s Cumberland Heritage Village Museum for a spine-tingling paranormal adventure. In small, intimate groups of no more than 12, you’ll gain exclusive access to investigate four eerie heritage buildings, each brimming with ghostly tales and ominous history in the dark! Feel the chill of the night and listen to the whispers of the past as we employ ancient and modern techniques to attempt to establish contact with the lingering spirits that may call the Village home. Will any of them answer? Leave skepticism at the door and step into the world of the unexplained. ‘Alone in the Dark’ offers an authentic experience where outcomes are as unpredictable as the spirits themselves. Nothing is hidden or staged. This unforgettably eerie evening will delight ghost story enthusiasts, fearless paranormal investigators, history aficionados, urban explorers, or anyone with a curiosity about the unknown. Book your spot now—spaces fill fast! All participants must be 16 or older. Choose curiosity over fear and join us in the dark!

"We attended 'Alone in the Dark' and it was like stepping into another world. The host was fantastic, setting realistic expectations while leading us through chilling paranormal activities. It's not your typical ghost tour—everything felt so real and spontaneous!"

Questions?

As we don’t use tricks or special effects, we cannot guarantee activity. However, given the haunted history of the Village and the activities we will be undertaking, it is more than possible. Each group will have a different and completely unpredictable experience.

We are extremely lucky to have exclusive access to four buildings.

We don’t want to give away all of the surprises, but there will be a variety of settings, some with more or less light than others.

As we will be doing a variety of different techniques and methods we would prefer you use the tools and equipment we will be sharing with you. Many of the things you will learn can be applied to future investigations. 

Alone in the Dark is not about jump scares or cheap thrills. We are going deeper than that. This experience is a thoughtful and interactive evening inside an incredible and historic haunted landmark, where we will consider the nature of hauntings and reach out into the abyss.

To keep the experience intimate and personal, each investigation is limited to a maximum of 12 guests. Due to the small group size and exclusive access to the site, tickets are very limited.

Sadly due to the age of the heritage buildings, this experience is not accessible.

To see all available dates and times click the “Book Now” button.

Due to the popularity of Alone in the Dark, tickets are non-refundable. However, if you run into a situation where you cannot attend, please call The Haunted Walk (613-232-0344) as soon as possible and we will do our best to assist.

For some, cemeteries evoke feelings of fear and dread. For others, they are beautiful spaces filled with memories and reflection. For us, they are places with countless stories waiting to be told. We are proud to partner with Beechwood Cemetery National Historic Site for a one-of-a-kind evening filled with storytelling and chills. We will share the darker history of the cemetery’s early days and the ghost stories connected to some who rest there – including strange reports from staff that continue to this day. The experience will be mostly outdoors as we walk amongst the crypts, headstones and other markers. Our final stop of the evening will give us the rare opportunity to venture inside the Mausoleum after sunset for one last spine-tingling tale.  We recommend all guests bring a flashlight for fun & safety.
