Parks Canada's Mountain WIT is transforming the Cave and Basin National Historic Site into a hilariously terrifying (or terrifyingly hilarious) house of horrors. Do you smell a whiff of brimstone and sulphur? Who dares to enter the Devil's Playground? Join us after hours and after dark to experience the thrills and chills of ghostly encounters at the birthplace of Canada’s national parks. $10.80 per person. Call 403-845-3524 to reserve tickets. Dress in your most fiendish costume, with the weather in mind. Portions of this program are outdoors. Rain or snow, the Devil will show. Doors open 30 minutes before show time. Come early for carnival games and Halloween treats on the pool deck!
