Adorn a costume, grab some friends, and join us for the annual Zed Haunted House! This fun and interactive haunted attraction is a Red Deer favourite for getting in some spooks and scares during the last two weeks of October. All proceeds from the event go toward the Boys and Girls Club of Red Deer & District. Come test your fear factor and support a worthy cause!
The Zed Haunted House is the primary fundraising event in support of the Boys and Girls Club. This annual high profile community event operates each year the final two weeks in October and attracts more than 7,000 visitors annually. With the tremendous support of business friends throughout the community and an army of volunteers contributing more than 8,000 hours every year this event continues to grow becoming an Alberta Tourism destination every fall.
2017 will represent the 27th annual edition of Red Deer’s Most Fatal Attraction.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Scary! is it?
Well, that depends on how easily scared you get. The evening shows are not recommended for children under 10 years of age. We provide weekend matinees for young children and those who are a little apprehensive about the evening show.
Are the line-ups long?
Line ups can get long on the prime days closer to Halloween. We suggest coming early in the event or you can purchase an advance “Spook Pass” online to ensure priority entry.
It is wheelchair accessible?
The attraction is not 100% wheelchair accessible, however, we are wheelchair friendly. What we mean by that is that the attraction has alternate routes with staff escort to ensure that folks in a wheelchair can enjoy the attraction.
I have a group to bring through. Can I get a discount on entry?
Group passes can be arranged by contacting Youth HQ at 403-342-6500 to arrange date and time. This rate is available for groups of 10 or more.
Can I get a refund if I get too scared?
Once you enter the attraction there are no refunds. You are paying us to scare you in a safe and fun Halloween attraction. If we accomplish that sooner than expected please consider it a job well done and thank you for supporting the Boys and Girls Club of Red Deer.
