Our Scare-Safe 2021 COVID-19 Safety Plan

What to Expect

The safety of our cast, crew, and guests is of the utmost importance to us. That’s why we’ve made extensive changes throughout the dam to keep you safe. You can do your part by following our procedures and taking our suggestions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. If you have any questions about what we’re doing to fight COVID-19, contact us via live chat and we’ll assist you.

No one can guarantee that you won’t contract COVID-19 by going out and attending events, but if we all work together and follow the below rules, we can vastly reduce the spread of COVID-19 and have a safe and fun Halloween.

What We’re Doing

Socially Distanced Queue

Our queue is designed to be short, with all guests selecting an arrival time and lining up with only those guests that are in the same general time slot. Our queue is properly socially distanced, so respect the markers and keep at least 2 meters between you and the group in front of you.

Guest Limits and Distancing

You can book for as many guests as you’d like to bring, but there is a catch. We only allow a maximum of 6 guests to enter the maze at one time. This is for safety as well as to preserve the entertainment experience.

We Won’t Touch You

We care about keeping you safe, and though it may not be apparent, all of our monsters don’t really want you to get sick. We won’t touch you and will keep our distance — you should too if you know what’s good for you 🙂

Enhanced Cleaning Procedures

We’ve enhanced our cleaning procedures everywhere, including disinfecting the attraction throughout the operations during the day and a super deep clean at the end of every night. We also continuously clean our concession and bar areas and disinfect tables after each use at our Zombie Cafe & Bar.

Extensive Employee Training

We’re providing extra training to our Cast and Crew members, including training on social distancing, sanitizing, and our new COVID-19 operating procedures, which we take very seriously. Our management team will be on-site at everyday coaching and encouraging strict adherence to these new practices.

Limiting the Acceptance of Cash

Cash can be dirty, and though there is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread using cash, we’re not taking any chances. We’re asking for everyone to tap their card where you can to limit interaction, giving change, etc. Cash can be accepted on a limited exception basis, if necessary.

Hand Sanitizer Throughout the Event (and it’s required)

There is hand sanitizer at our outdoor Zombie Cafe & Bar. You will also be required to use hand sanitizer before entering the Maze.

Masks Are Suggested But Optional

To keep everyone safe, fully vaccinated guests will be allowed to attend without a mask. We will not require proof of vaccination and this will be on the honor system. It’s still a good idea to keep your distance and if you prefer to wear a mask, please do.

Our Drink and Food Menus Are Digital

Our full food and drink menu is available online, so there’s. no need to have paper menus, etc.

Advance Ticket and Queue Time Selection

In order to be granted access to our Maze, you need to select an entry time. This keeps our lines short and promotes social distancing. We have very limited tickets available for each time-slot, so purchase your tickets early to avoid disappointments. Walk-ups will be refused if the time-slot you’re attending is sold out.

Contactless Mobile Check-In

When you arrive, please have your tickets available on your phone or have them pre-printed. We will wirelessly scan your ticket for no-contact entry to our Maze.

Proof of Vaccine Required

The Provincial Health Officer has required that we verify you have received a COVID-19 vaccine. You can bring a paper copy or show us your status on your phone. You must have:

1 DOSE between October 1st and 23rd
2 DOSES after October 24th

What you can do to help!

There’s lots you can do to help us keep everyone who comes to Vancouver Horror Nights safe. By now, most of these policies should be well-known to you as most restaurants are implementing similar procedures. That said, the Vancouver Horror Nights has some unique policies that we ask you review before bringing your friends to our haunted attraction.

Please Don’t Touch Our Staff

We know you love us; we love you too! We also know it’s easy to get scared and have a reaction. For everyone’s safety, please don’t have physical contact with our staff and don’t touch any props within the house.

Remember Your Social Distancing

Keep at least a 2-meter distance even when you’re not in our queue. It just makes good sense.

Wash Your Hands Frequently

Prevent the spread by washing your hands frequently, especially after using the restroom. Remember, you should wash your hands for at least 30 seconds, which is about the time it takes to sing “Happy Birthday.”

We have 2 handwashing stations next to the restrooms at the Zombie Cafe & Bar

Stay Home If You’re Feeling Unwell

If you find that you’re not feeling well the day of the performance, we ask that you please stay home and get well. We’re open until November 2, 2020, so you have lots of time to come back when you’re feeling better. You can never be too careful.

We’re Always Listening

If you have a concern that we haven’t addressed, please contact us via Live Chat and we’ll be happy to provide you with some personal reassurance, answer your questions, or make special arrangements for you.
