This was my first experience with the Haunted Walk of Ottawa. While I would consider another one, the Diefenbunker Zombie walk is very poorly done and not worth the time. If you're looking for something spooky, this is not it. Group was too large to...More

If you have or are willing to pay for a minimum of five people, we can often add a daytime departure. If you book with less than five and we manage to sell those tickets, we would refund your "ghost guests." Please call us... More
