Montreal's Old Port Now Has An All-New Summer Haunted House Until September

Everyone's favourite Peur Depot is back to haunt you in the heat.

A good scare shouldn't happen only during Halloween-season, and thankfully, now summer will be a bit more scary. The thrill, excitement, and adrenaline-pumping reaction you get when you're scared (you know you love it) can now be experienced in the summer sun, thanks to PEUR DÉPÔT new spot in the Old Port.

Unlike a dinky carnival horror house, PEUR DÉPÔT is a bone-chilling site of terror for a new generation. Using modern visual and special effects, PEUR DÉPÔT places you in smack dab in the middle of a horror film, and all you have to do is survive.

Created by Quebec horror master Patrick Senécal, PEUR DÉPÔT is not for the faint of heart, but that isn't to say it can't be enjoyed by all. Everyone loves some exciting terror, and everything is entirely safe and controlled in a PEUR DÉPÔT simulation.

Plus, to couples enjoying a romantic evening in the Old Port...well you know what they say about fear and the libido. It's pretty much why people on dates go to horror movies. So think about that the next time you need a date-night idea ;).

PEUR DÉPÔT will be open all summer from June 26th to September 7th, open Tuesdays to Sundays from 11am to 11pm. Admission is $18.66 on site and $16.66 online. Save a few bucks by planning ahead and getting your tickets via the 'net, it's not like you can pass up a real-world horror movie experience.

To get more info and to buy tickets, head to PEUR DÉPÔT's website and the Old Port's online listing.
