Brace yourself for a brand-new immersive experience in 2024! Join us at the 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! As we embark on this supernatural journey, we will utilize a wide array of techniques, both ancient and modern, in our attempts to communicate with the spirits that may dwell within the Village. 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 spooky evening will delight ghost story enthusiasts, fearless paranormal investigators, history aficionados, urban explorers, or anyone with a curiosity about the unknown. Space is limited. All participants must be 18+. Choose curiosity over fear and join us in the dark!

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.
