Embrun youth bring to life a terrifying haunted house in Eastern Ontario

Grade 7 and 8 students from Embrun Catholic High School bring the haunted house of Acres of Terror to life.

Acres of Terror Theme Village celebrates 30 years at Cannamore Orchard, Crysler. For the occasion, the organizers have called on 7th and 8th grade students from Embrun Catholic High School to animate their haunted house.

The haunted course is divided into four stations : the Spooky Wagon Ride, the Spooky Village, the Fog Maze, a labyrinth immersed in the fog, and the House of Terror where a sinister clown and a bloodied nurse are particularly rife.

These gloomy characters were created from scratch by young people from the intermediate pavilion of the Secondary School Catholic Embrun. In all, 68 students are participating in the activity, in addition to 12 staff members.

It's really funny! Often, people are so scared that they jump on the friends who are with…, laughs Tristan Chartrand-Gendron, 12 years old. And everyone is screaming! It's really fun.

The evening of our visit, Tristan was stationed on a platform, masked and brandishing a fake circular saw. He didn't hesitate to show us around.

After pushing open the door of the haunted house, fearless visitors walk down a long, narrow corridor and winding.

There's a hand there. […] You wait here, and when they pass, you stick out your hand as if it were a skeleton!, explains Tristan who knows the secrets of the house well.

It is an activity that seeks emotions. We like to see people coming here with all the anticipation. Sometimes it's the anticipation that creates the fear, if you will, but it's for fun, insists Danika Bélisle, arts teacher at the intermediate pavilion at Embrun Catholic High School.

The enthusiasm of thrill seekers strong is undeniable at the Cannamore orchard. On their website, Acres of Terror even describes their haunted route as the most terrifying Halloween attraction in Eastern Ontario.

“We know it's sold out when we've sold 600 tickets…for one night. And we had several full parties.

— Danika Bélisle, teacher at Embrun Catholic High School

The friendly witch knows the haunted trail well, having participated in it as a teenager.

Over the years, Acres of Terror has grown significantly. There have been improvements. It is revised every year, underlines Danika Bélisle.

Acres of Terror parties continue until October 30. The little ones and their families are entitled to a less scary version, on weekend afternoons.

Part of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the educational institution.
