OooOOOOOoooo!! It’s the event everyone’s been waiting all year for!
This Halloween weekend, from October 29 to November 1, Engineers and Geoscientists New Brunswick will be staging their 6th annual APEGNB Haunted Tour at the Charlotte Street Arts Centre (CSAC) in Fredericton, to benefit the centre and its outstanding, year-round ArtReach program. The LOW SCARE tours are also back again this year at Science East, with proceeds going to support free public access to programs at the Exploratory Centre for Early Learning (ExCEL).
The tour times and dates for the HIGH SCARE tour at the CSAC are:
Wednesday, Oct 29: 6-9 PM
Thursday, Oct 30: 6-9 PM
Friday, Oct 31: 6-10 PM
Saturday, Nov 1: 5-9 PM
Admission is $10/person cash at the door. Please note that we have a minimum age limit of 9 years old.
The tour times and dates for the LOW SCARE tour at Science East are:
Wednesday, October 29, 12-5 PM

Saturday, November 1, 12-5 PM
Admission is $8 at the door for children ages 3 and older, and accompanying adults get in for free. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
Last year, more than 2000 people attended the APEGNB Haunted Tour at the CSAC, which brought in close to $20,000 to support local educational programming for children, at-risk youth, seniors and disadvantaged groups. CSAC and Science East are Scare Central in Fredericton—home of the original Haunted Tours! The fright stations are designed and staffed by engineers, artists and technology experts, experienced in delivering top-notch Halloween thrills and chills. This year’s High Scare tour will include our wildly innovative fright stations, costumed creepers and synchronized outdoor light and sound display. Visitors are encouraged to come early!
