The Montreal Casino is gearing up for its latest Halloween Fright Zone installments. Well known for its themed nights, the casino will once again be organizing unsettling and spine-chilling nights filled with games, gambling, and ghosts.
If you weren't nervous about gambling all your money away, you will be once you have to ward off lost souls roaming the floors.
Spread out over five nights — October 25, 26, 31, and November 1, 2 — the Fright Zone evenings are filled with all sorts of creepy monsters, horror sets, and free activities that come alive after the sun goes down.
The spooky feel starts as soon as you enter the casino (at entrance C) and you have to tiptoe your way through a cemetery before you can even place a bet.
There will be all sorts of costumed monsters wandering the floors. You'll walk through a myriad of creepy sections like the cemetery populated with skeletons and the undead, laboratory with a mad scientist and his creations, and a full-on eerie carnival setup complete with grotesque clowns, a fortune-teller, and a man with superhuman strength.
Even scarier is that you and your friends will also be able to remake the choreography of Thriller led by DJ Steve Watt.
Guests are encouraged to wear their own costumes — come on, it's Halloween! Masks aren't allowed, but there are makeup booths where a professional artist will transform you into one of the undead.
Be aware that werewolves will be prowling the area. You can even watch a wild, live transformation of man to beast at the Valet de Carreau Bar.
Each Halloween night at Casino de Montréal will have free live music at the bar where you and your people can dance and party until the wee hours of the morning. You never know what creepy ghoul may join you on the dancefloor.
DJ Dax will perform on October 25 and 26, and DJ Bruno Berdnikofon October 31, November 1 and 2.
And don't worry, not all the ghouls are out to scare you. On October 31, rumour has it that some of the creatures there only to hand out candy for the evening, which will bring you back to your trick or treating days!
This is an excellent event if you're looking to do something different this Halloween. Everything you could want is really under one roof.
