The chilling experience leads visitors through gloomy tunnels and chambers of the historic garrison.

The haunted attraction is officially reopening on October 2 and will run on select days until November 1.

This year's theme is "darkness" and visitors will be spooked by all sorts of sinister beings as they journey through the Fort.

You just might encounter some real-life ghosts as well. Fort Henry is known to be haunted, and visitors have reported seeing spirits.

One such spirit is Nils von Schoultz, who was hanged at the garrison for his role in the 1838 rebellion.

You may glimpse him roaming about in his worn blue uniform as you explore the area.

You can take the fear factor up a notch by going to the new Terror Tuesdays.

Starting September 29 and running until the end of October, you can get spooked at an outdoor horror movie show taking place in the Lower Fort.

Films include Cabin In The Woods, Silent Hill, and Saw 1. 

General admission to Fort Fright is $25 per person, and group and military admission is $20 per person.

Terror Tuesdays is $10 per person.

Tickets for both experiences are on sale now, so it's time to plan a spooky adventure.

If you're looking for more frightening experiences, you can visit a brand new haunted attraction in Ottawa for all the scares.

Head to this haunted garrison to spy some ghoulish beings, some of which may not be part of the attraction at all.
