Creepy Hollow Scares Southern Albertans for Over 20 Years | The Canadian News

Possibly one of the scariest attractions in the area, Creepy Hollow in southern Alberta continues to scare both locals and out-of-town visitors ahead of Halloween.

The popular site, located approximately 30 minutes south of Lethbridge, was previously located in nearby Stirling for 15 years before moving to Warner.

“In 2015 we acquired the property and moved our business from Stirling to here at the time,” explained owner Glory Reimer. “In that first year we had six months to build our first haunted house, and since then it has grown and gained popularity.

“It has been a fun trip.”

Set on 20 acres of land, the popular haunted mansion and other Halloween-themed activities have seen a high volume of visitors since September.

Creepy Hollow is technically open year round and also has a campground.

“When families come, we want to make sure everyone in the family has a good time,” Reimer said.

“So it can be scary, but it doesn’t have to be. We can do a nice tour of the house museum for the little kids, but then there are the people who want to be terrified and we make sure that happens too. “

Mainly run by the family and a couple dozen staff members, the site is open most days at 2:00 PM, welcoming visitors both day and night.

Creepy Hollow’s haunted mansion contains a series of themed rooms to scare visitors away.

“I like to sit back and act like I’m not moving, and then I move and everyone tends to scream,” McLean said.

“Adolescents are the ones who are most scared.”

COVID-19 protocols include indoor masking and group distancing when touring buildings.

Reimer added that while they do see some locals, many of their visitors come from Alberta. The highlight is listening to customer feedback to make sure they can keep improving year after year.

“We actually see a little bit of Medicine Hat, Calgary, Edmonton. Each year is just a staple on your list. They (have to) go do it, ”he said.
