Legends of Horror at Casa Loma is one of Toronto's most popular haunted attractions. Throughout the over 1 hour experience, the audience is immersed in a variety of theatrically designed sets in gardens and chambers below the castle. Each of these introducing characters in the environmental theatre, in which the physical location, rather than being a traditional playhouse, creates the actual setting. The traditional set change does not exist but is created by having the audience move on to the next scene. A crescendo of the production is the 3D projection on the exterior of the castle which brings the characters of the storyline and the walls of the castle to life.

All new for 2022, Zombie Apocalypse. Tickets are sold separately for this immersive experience created in partnership with Secret City Adventures. Toronto’s newest and largest zombie themed haunted house invites patrons to enter the world of fictional pharmaceutical giant, Biolux and its new wonder drug: the Biolux Serum, a purported solution to aging and disease, which renders subjects into cannibalizing contagious zombies. Guests start in the unsettling Biolux showrooms, only to uncover grisly secrets in the Biolux labs, full of gruesome experiments and maniacal scientists; then, explore rooms and haunting displays in the survivor camps, as the last of humanity struggles in a doomed battle against the zombie apocalypse. Located in an abandoned facility south of historic Casa Loma at 175 Kendal Avenue (southeast corner of Kendal and Davenport), the 45-minute activation featuring live actors promises to take the fear factor to the next level.

I have attended Legends of Horror every year and 2022 was disappointing. Lack of actors and scares left me bored. The second half felt like a regular walk. Staff cutting through the maze wrecked the whole experience. There has been nothing new added since prior to Covid. It was not the worst haunted attraction I have been to. Some of the displays were interesting but nothing special. Maybe it will be better next year.

Overall okay, but I’ll probably skip this one next year.
Fear Factor – some good jump scares, the potential is definitely there. Unfortunately, this was overshadowed by all the other guests walking slowly through the haunt. I understand it’s challenging to space people out and keep them moving, but there are ways to do this, we’ve seen other haunts succeed at this!
Costumes – Animatronics were impressive! There were more this year, maybe to help balance the lack of live actors. Costumes on the few live actors were okay, only a couple stood out.
Actors – The shortage of live actors was pretty disappointing. Those that were there, did a pretty good job.
Realism – On one hand, the decorations and displays were really well done and set the mood perfectly. Things that took away from this… random workers (servers) cutting through the tunnels with food, employees standing throughout the haunt ‘directing’ you (missed opportunity to have them dressed/in character?), random disconnects during the haunt with normal lighting and employees standing around, chatting.
Value – Not bad if you can find a Groupon or similar discount.
Parking – Challenging to find at first. On site parking is a $15 fee but fills up quickly and is poorly lit. There is public parking at the bottom of the hill if you don’t mind a short walk.

I have visited this haunt many times over the years. In the beginning the mazes were filled with actors not only jumping out to scare you, but also actors showcasing their artistic abilities in the form of opera singing, gymnastics, etc. All this has seemed to dwindle over the years. The scenery however is second to none. The gardens are decorated very well and gives off a great spooky atmosphere. For those experiencing this haunt for the first time, will likely be very impressed. It would be nice to see some updates for those of us that have come every year since the opening.
