Warning: This popular corn maze isn’t for the faint of heart. Nicknamed ‘Canada’s Scariest Maze’, it takes place on 5 acres of farmland and features gory displays, live actors, real chainsaws, mutated creatures and more! This year’s theme centers on a boy named Thomas who decides to explore the abandoned testing facility beneath his farm. While going through the maze, you take on the role of ‘Thomas’ and must conquer multiple obstacles and try to make it out alive. Good luck!
It’s impossible to talk about fall in Vancouver without mentioning Stanley Park.
