Heebie Jeebies delivers the scares this Halloween season
By Kevin Rodriguez
Halloween celebrations are being axed this year, but Heebie Jeebies is committed to keeping people scared while still following provincial health regulations.
Whether you’re walking through a zombie military nightmare or a creepy clown circus, Heebie Jeebies is taking necessary precautions to ensure the safety of staff and attendees throughout the chilling experience.
“Heebie Jeebies is going above and beyond Manitoba Health’s COVID-19 requirements to provide a safe and fun time for all,” said Tim Muys, owner of Heebie Jeebies.
Muys said they have 16 different policies in place and plenty of security on site.
Heebie Jeebies tickets are limited in quantity and sold online in order to cap the number of people allowed on the premises. Hand sanitizer is available throughout the attraction and staff are keeping groups of visitors two metres apart.
Actors aren’t allowed to touch patrons and while visitors can’t wear their own scary masks, cloth ones are mandatory and are included with each ticket.
With restrictions in place and a change in frights, Heebie Jeebies is still attracting a long line on LaSalle Rd.
“It feels like it’s still the same level of scariness as last year,” said Miranda Côté, 26.
This year’s attractions include four mazes with creepy clowns, undead soldiers, a nightmarish junkyard and a family gathering to die for. Photo booths are set up and spooky carnival games are available around the event.
“I think I’ll go again next year.,” said Côté, an RRC Science Laboratory Technology grad. “It’s a good opportunity for a scream.”
