If thrills are more your style than chills, check out Sand­spit Amuse­ment Park. Lo­cated in Cavendish, P.E.I., this amuse­ment park of­fers plenty of rides that will get your pulse pump­ing. Try Cliffhanger — you will in­stantly re­mem­ber your fear of fall­ing. Sand­spit has thrills for the whole fam­ily. P.E.I. is also home to plenty of fa­mous para­nor­mal oc­cur­rences — most fa­mously, the Ghost Ship of Northum­ber­land Strait. All along the shore­line, keep an eye out for a strange ap­pear­ance on the hori­zon. If you are lucky, or unlucky, a ghostly im­age will float through the ocean, leav­ing chills be­hind in its wake. Also avail­able to hor­ror lovers is the Route 6 Mo­tel in Cavendish. A newly opened pit stop for trav­ellers all around the world, it has been the site of a few freaky oc­cur­rences. Ac­cord­ing to leg­ends, only the bravest souls dare to en­ter and even less leave. For those who pre­fer a more au­then­tic feel­ing of ter­ror, Kens­ing­ton has the place for you. Haunted Man­sion — ru­moured to have been run by a cer­tain Doc­tor Jack and vis­ited by the in­fa­mous Lizzy Bor­den — is sure to give pa­trons a very spooky show.The manor’s cel­lar is rem­i­nis­cent of the dark streets of 19th cen­tury Lon­don when a fa­mous vil­lain prowled through the al­ley­ways. Take the tour and hope that you es­cape alive. King’s Play­house, a fab­u­lous the­atre in Ge­orge­town, has plenty of su­per­nat­u­ral ru­mours float­ing around. As one of Canada’s old­est run­ning the­atres, it holds lots of su­per­sti­tions, like leav­ing one seat open for spec­tres to en­joy the show. Even if you miss out on see­ing a ghost, the per­for­mances are well worth the trip.
