Welcome to my nightmare – what is Legends of Horror
Legends of Horror is a theatrical interpretation of classic horror characters, themes and décor known as promenadetheatre – where guests wander at their own pace through an interactive set as the sun sets, and autumnal moon rises. With thrills and chills at each turn, dramatic lighting, 3D imagery projections and animatronics, guests begin the 2 km outdoor walking trail in the lower gardens of the property and wind their way through to Sir Henry Pellatt’s rat-infested, dimly lit tunnels under the street. Next, the castle’s historic – allegedly, haunted – Stables, the freaky and fantastical home of Dr. Frankenstein, where his cast of ghoulish characters await.
Exit light, enter night…
Liberty Group is thrilled to announce the gala premiere, one night only,appearance of Toronto’s rock & roll darlings, the Cold Weather Captains performing live onstage in the castle’s Glass Pavilion — aka the Captain Morgan Bar and Lounge — where opening night VIP guests may recharge with themed bar & beverage options. With unparalleled views of the creepy castle projections, the Captains will undoubtedly maximize the ultimate horror experience, to kick off the festivities. The Lounge is open throughout the remaining calendar program — for all patrons — offering the scariest and spookiest of refreshments, to chill and quiet the soul on their journey.
“We have added some terrifying new surprises in this year’s production, and guarantee an unparalleled experience for all ages,” said Nadia Di Donato, vice president and creative director, Liberty Entertainment Group.
“Each year we go bigger and bolder, and we believe that our show will thrill, chill, disturb and delight, offering a distinct experience on each visit. We promise an evening full of phantasmagorical and freaky fun, and quite simply, the best Halloween experience in the city.”
The rise of the flesh-eaters
Zombie Apocalypse – created in partnership with Secret City Adventures – invites guests to enter the world of fictional pharma giant, Biolux to meet its army of cannibalizing and contagious undead.

The event runs from September 29th – October 31st from 6pm – late.
“Bar none, we have the very best seasonal events in town, and expect them to be another sell-out,” said Nick Di Donato, president & CEO, Liberty Entertainment Group. “The castle is the unparalleled venue in Toronto for the ultimate celebration of the season.
