Haunted house back in Qualicum Beach

Cloudhead Games hosting second year of haunted house

After receiving a bigger response than expected at last year’s haunted house, Cloudhead Games and the Town of Qualicum Beach are hosting its second annual Halloween Haunted House in the old fire hall at 124 Harlech Rd.

Tracey Unger, one of the organizers of the haunted house and co-founder of Cloudhead, said this year will feature the same items as last year, “but with a twist,” adding the haunted house will have a new layout.

Hours for the haunted house are: Friday, Oct. 27 from 6-9 p.m. with jump-scare actors (not suitable for younger kids), Tuesday, Oct. 31 from 3-6 p.m. for younger children and from 6-9 p.m. with jump-scare actors (not suitable for children).

Many volunteers are still needed for set up, tear down and to be jump scare actors (Oct. 27 and 31). Set up and tear down volunteers would need to bring a drill. Creepy display workers are asked to bring their creativity.

Set up volunteers are needed Oct. 15 from 1-5 p.m. and Oct. 21 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tear down volunteers are needed for Saturday, Nov. 18 at 10 a.m.

If anyone would like to help, email Tracey Unger at tracey@cloudheadgames.com.

This year, Unger said, they will be collecting donations for Manna Homeless Society. Unger said last year, they put a food bank donation bin outside of the haunted house and ended up collecting $1,200 in cash and a lot of food donations as well.

Last year, Tracey and Denny Unger, who run Qualicum Beach-based Cloudhead Games, along with the town, purchased the decorations from Stacey and Sheila Goodman who were looking to sell hundreds of decorations after downsizing.

Unger said the haunted house turned out to be quite a hit in Qualicum Beach with hundreds showing up because of the downtown trick-or-treating event. While it was a lot of kids who visited while trick-or-treating, Unger said some of the groups were ladies who went out for dinner and then came to the haunted house and others were seniors who loved to be scared.
