TORONTO, Oct. 4, 2022 – Things that go bump in the night? That’s right! Already with thousands of guests ascending the steps of Casa Loma to experience the 2022 edition of Captain Morgan Presents Legends of the Horror, Torontonians still looking for a fright can take in the immersive Zombie Apocalypse. Opening on October 13th right across the street from the castle at an eerie abandoned George Brown College facility, is Toronto’s newest and largest zombie themed haunted house.
An immersive Zombie Apocalypse, mad scientists and more
New this year as a combo add-on to Liberty Entertainment Group’s. creepy Casa Loma experience, is an immersive experience created in partnership with Secret City Adventures – overseers of the fan favourite, the Casa Loma Escape Series – called Zombie Apocalypse.
Toronto’s Zombie Apocalypse experience invites patrons to enter the world of fictional pharmaceutical giant, Biolux and its new wonder drug: the Biolux Serum, a purported solution to aging and disease, which renders subjects into cannibalizing contagious zombies. Guests start in the unsettling Biolux showrooms, only to uncover grisly secrets in the Biolux labs, full of gruesome experiments and maniacal scientists; then, explore rooms and haunting displays in the survivor camps, as the last of humanity struggles in a doomed battle against the zombie apocalypse.
Located in an abandoned facility south of historic Casa Loma at 175 Kendal Avenue (southeast corner of Kendal and Davenport Ave.) the 45-minute activation featuring live actors promises to take the fear factor to the next level. The event runs from October 13th – November 5th from 6pm – 11pm.
“As summer winds down and the city’s thoughts turn to fall, we’re excited to announce the return of the very best seasonal event in town,” said Nick Di Donato, president & CEO, Liberty Entertainment Group. “The team has been working on a thrilling Halloween program for months and we cannot wait to unleash the demons and zombies on Toronto audiences of all ages, who have made this a sell-out event every year.”
