Fans of seances and speaking to the dead will get a kick out of Haunted High Park located at the Colbourn lodge at 11 Colbourn Lodge Drive.

Guests will get to go on a ghost walk and tour that will include a Victorian seance, a candlelit tour of a 19th-century home in mourning, and a visit to the tomb of the founders of High Park. The tours will also recount ghost sightings and paranormal activities from around the museum.
