Goal$2,000 for Cancer, Clothing for the homeless, Food for the Food Bank & 200 visitors to visit our haunted house



Spooky Tours has morphed to help our community in 3 ways – raise money for cancer research, clothing for our homeless and food for the food bank. Spooky Tours was created 8 years ago by siblings; Kia and Leela, for kids and Halloween lovers of all ages.


In 2009, the children hosted their first Spooky Tours for Cancer. The idea was born out of the desire to raise more money and awareness about cancer. Their passion was ignited when their three-year-old friend survived a grim cancer diagnosis. After their friend was released from hospital in 2006, they began participating with him in the twelve-hour Relay for Life, but they wanted to do even more.

A dozen enthusiastic volunteers have been working tirelessly on a French hotel themed Spooky Tours named “L’hôtel de la Morte”. Leela Taggar who is attending L’école Supérieure De Ballet Du Québec inspires the French theme. Though her physical body will not be attending Spooky Tours, her spirit will be.

Every year, the children expand Spooky Tours. It began its humble beginnings in the garage with children from their street attending and raising $5. Last year, in their 7th year, they expanded it to three floors of their home, 200 people of all ages attend and raised nearly $1,000, plus clothing for the homeless. This year, the kids are adding a backyard component and hoping to attract over 200 guests and raise $2,000 for Cancer Research plus clothing for the homeless and food for the food bank.

Visiting our Oct 20th weekend Spooky Tours Haunted House at 262 Casswell Court, Waterloo
When you arrive to “L’hôtel de la Morte”, our host will greet you outside. You will have a chance to play our ball toss game. Depending on the day, you may even see a real fire truck too!

Spooky Tours has three levels of “scary”: 

  • Level one is not scary and is ideal for those who do not like the dark or being scared.  Guests will explore the ballroom.
  • Level two will be a blend of not scary and a little scary.  On a level two, tour guests will explore the “Suite d’amour maudite” (honeymoon suite) and the ballroom with the tour guide. Alone guests are welcome to explore the “Jardin de Terreur” (Garden of Terror).
  • Level three is scary! This is intended only for those who say “you cannot scare me”. The tour guide will begin on the little scary level, then if the participant is brave enough, will continue the tour to “Torture Cuisine” (the Kitchen).  Alone the scares will continue to the “Jardin de terreur” (Garden of Terror).


Admission is a donation to Canadian Cancer Society, food to the food bank and/or clothing for the homeless.
