If you build it, they’ll shout: Field of Screams is back tonight in Calgary

Cobb’s Park is always a must see, but they are really gearing up for Halloween and this year is no different with the return of Field of Screams.

For the spooky season, Cobb’s Adventure Park is transformed into a “terrifying, thrilling, heart-pounding spectacle of terror”.

You can experience one of six haunted houses this year that all tackle classic spooky scenarios: Buried Alive, Haunted Mansion, Mad House, Scary Tales, Aliens and Death Trap.

Death Trap takes visitors through a 6,000 square foot maze, which sounds great…until you come to a “dead end” where you’re greeted by characters you probably don’t want to spend your weekend with . You might also want to watch where you step (and your back) in this huge, spooky maze.

In addition to a few haunted houses, there will be tractor rides, pedal cars, giant puzzles and a bonfire, as well as games like archery and black light mini-golf.

There are also a ton of great food truck options, including ice cream and mini donuts to reward you for surviving a spooky night.

And what would Halloween be without a special treat on site?

If you need to bring your heart rate down after the scares or want a moment of zen before a thrilling night, the kangaroo educational farm will be open until 8 p.m.

The rest of the activities are open from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., weather permitting.

Tickets for Field of Screams are available now with the event every Friday and Saturday through the end of the month. Tickets are $26 online and $32 at the door.

This is just one of the fall events Cobbs is hosting this season. You can also bring the family over the weekend to check out Pumpkin Palooza where you can find your perfect future Jack-O’-Lantern.
