Burnaby is in for a spooktacular October, as a new Halloween event promising an immersive, haunted quest comes to town.

The Haunted Halloween Adventure takes place at Warner Loat Park and invites participants to solve the mystery of missing villagers while having to fight off a terrifying barrage of orcs. You can also enjoy a variety of other spooky games and visit the village tavern for some good food, drinks, and merriment.

Tourism Burnaby told the Beacon that the event is essentially an “open-world video game come to life,” and the experience is known as “live-action gaming.”

Folks will start out by entering the haunted village to begin the quest at the tavern (Steamworks Brewery), but don’t get too comfortable because you’ll soon embark on a series of challenges.

You may have to help a prisoner escape, rob the wealthy, or play a game with Vikings. Eventually, you’ll have to face orcs, werewolves, and trolls. The quest will involve archery, axe throwing, and many more exciting elements that will keep participants on their toes.
