11 Scariest, Best Haunted Houses in Seattle for Halloween

' src=

Discover the spookier side of Seattle this Halloween! If you are looking for the scariest haunted houses in Seattle, consider Georgetown Morque and Nightfall Orphanage. Or you can choose from this list:

Some of these haunted attractions in Seattle may be scary, and some will be just funny! Going to these haunted places is one of the best things to do for Halloween in Seattle. When visiting Seattle city , enjoy experiences from thrilling scares to engaging community-driven haunts.

11 Scariest Haunted Houses in Seattle And Around for Halloween

This list is not just for Seattle City; you will also discover the best-haunted houses near Seattle for Halloween and other events and festivals . Also, read one of my scary posts: What if Seattle got nuked?

1/ Nightfall Orphanage in Southwest Seattle

Nightfall Orphanage offers a one-of-a-kind haunted experience in Seattle that is community-oriented. Set in a private residence in a peaceful neighborhood, it stands out for its commitment to raising donations for local charities.

haunted house jobs seattle

Nightfall Orphanage is open to all visitors. While most children aged 10 and above can enjoy it, parental discretion is advised as younger kids have also had a positive experience. You must visit the Nightfall Orphanage this Halloween.

Nightfall Orphanage is the most feared haunted house in a private residence built in 1926. It offers an intimate atmosphere, but note that there is no wheelchair access, and guests should be comfortable with uneven ground, steps, and tight spaces.

2/ Georgetown Morgue in South Seattle

Georgetown Morgue is one of the best and the scariest haunted houses in Seattle with a creepy history. It’s one of the “most intriguing historic urban morgues” with a reputation to match.

The Georgetown Morgue is not just a morgue but also a crematorium, adding to its unsettling atmosphere. It is associated with dark events, including the discovery of a dismembered body and the infamous “Seattle crematorium massacre” of 1968.

While evidence is scarce, they add a spine-tingling backdrop to the haunted house experience. It is a must-visit in Seattle for this Halloween.

Get your Georgetown Morgue ticket for a chilling catacomb walkthrough. Actors in terrifying disguises await and, for an extra thrill, brave the pitch-black maze (additional fee). And kids under 12 are not welcome here.

The tour of the fictional Georgetown morgue is not for the faint of heart. Tight industrial spaces, unexpected jumps, and intense moments await.

haunted house jobs seattle

Be ready for an unforgettable experience! It is consistently ranked among the top haunted houses in Washington .

Georgetown Morgue offers free parking and is wheelchair accessible. No alcohol allowed. “No touch” policy. Long lines, but the VIP option is available for extra cost.

3/ Underground Paranormal Experience in Pioneer Square

The Underground Paranormal Experience in Pioneer Square is a unique attraction for those interested in the paranormal. It offers a nocturnal version of Seattle’s famous underground tour, allowing you to explore the city’s subterranean history.

11 Tips for Visiting These Haunted Houses in Seattle, Washington

Let me share a few things you need to consider before going to a haunted house. 

1/ Ticket Costs: Most haunted attractions must be budget-friendly, usually costing more than $15 for regular adult admission. But don’t worry; I’ve got some cost-saving tips.

2/ Not for Kids: Most haunted houses do not welcome kids under 12. But, some offer “kid’s” time when they turn the light on. 

3/ Consider Your Health: Your well-being is essential. Haunted houses can be intense, so you must consider your health before diving into the scares. That is common sense! 

4/ Buy Tickets Directly at the Venue or with Cash to Save Online Fees. 

5/ Enjoy Pre-Show Entertainment: Make the most of your time waiting in line for snacks, concessions, and entertainment. 

6/ Confirm the Restroom Availability: Some haunted houses offer, and some don’t. I do not recommend going with a full bladder or a big meal!

7/ Keep the Parking Plan: Get ready for your trip by knowing the parking situation. 

8/ Prepare for the Weather in Seattle: Weather can be unpredictable in Seattle or somewhere else. So, dress appropriately and stay comfortable while waiting outside. Bring an umbrella, jacket, or hoodie in a rainy city like Seattle. 

9/ Skip the Weekends to Avoid Crowds:   Visit the haunted houses in Seattle or anywhere in the world during early October, on weeknights, or later on Sunday evenings.

10/ Confirm the Duration: Discover the duration to navigate haunted houses, ranging from 15 to 90 minutes based on event size and your speed.

11/ Consider No Refund Policy : Understand the rules – there are usually no exceptions.

I hope you enjoy this Halloween in Seattle fully scary 🙂

Tips for visiting haunted houses

Things to know before you go:

Not cheap. Our threshold is $15 regular adult admission in order for admission to be called “cheap”, which most haunted attractions are not. We post them anyway. You know, to scare you. (Menacing laugh here.) Some do have advance purchase and special days discounts. So look for these to lower your costs. A few are cheap and some are even free—though at these locations people can mysteriously disappear and don’t report back…so we’ve heard. (More menacing laugh.)

Not for kiddos (12 or under). Most of these attractions are NOT recommended for children 12 and under. Some corn mazes are not haunted but are dark and can be scary for young children. Use common sense. Some locations offer a special “kid’s” time, when the lights are on and the scare-o-meter is turned off. So if you must take children 12 or younger, these are the ones to consider 

Not for those with health issues. Haunted houses and other scary Halloween attractions are not recommended for pregnant women or anyone with a physical condition who may be adversely affected by being surprised or frightened. In addition to the fright factor, effects such as strobe lights and fog machines may be used. Check with your healthcare provider.

Save online fees by buying your tickets at the venue or paying cash, if these options are available. Many accept credits cards, but some accept only cash, and few (if any) have ATMS.

Pre-show. Some venues have snacks, concessions, and/or food trucks, entertainment or other distractions while you are waiting in line

Restrooms or porta-toilets. Maybe, maybe not. Check. It is not recommended to go with a full bladder. Or a big meal for that matter. Just sayin’.

Parking. Many have free parking but be sure to confirm the situation and plan accordingly.

Waiting outside. Waiting lines are often outside; so, bring an umbrella or hood or hat if rain is predicted. In other words, dress for the weather and wear sturdy walking shoes.

Long waiting lines. The lines waiting to get in at haunted houses are longest on weekends and the week before Halloween. To avoid long waits, plan to go early in October, early on weeknights, or later on Sunday night. Some venues also offer a “fast pass” ticket, which lets you skip the waiting line to get in. However, this makes haunted attractions even more expense than they already are. We say save the money, plan ahead, and bring patience.

Length of attraction. Haunted attractions take varying amounts of time to go through, from 15 to 90 minutes depending on the size of the event and your speed. It can be faster if you are walking at a quickened pace (for example, due to terror). It can be slower also due to terror as well as for those who stop to laugh hysterically at the illusion of the event. Only you will know.

No refunds, no exceptions. Every attraction has a strict NO REFUNDS policy. The number one reason people request a refund is because they were too scared. Well, duh. If you leave in the middle of the attraction because it’s too scary for you, or don’t use the ticket due to illness or death (whether yours or a family member), or don’t show up as assigned for timed tickets, or the weather is bad, or any other reason you or Mother Nature can conjure up, you will not receive a refund on advance purchase tickets. No refunds, no exceptions.

2023 Halloween haunted houses, corn mazes, spooky tours

Know before you go! Some venues are cashless, others are cash only and may or may not have ATMs on-site. Some do not sell tickets on-site, others only sell tickets on-site, and still others require reserved timed entry tickets. If available, we recommend buying tickets in advance as it may save you time from standing in line and/or guarantee you can get in. Advance purchase ***may*** also save you some money. Also look for special days and discounts on their ticket page. So, check their website before you head out and reserve your fright for the haunt.

A Guide to Haunted Houses Around Seattle (Halloween 2023)

Prepare for scares 💀 🔪

By Patheresa Wells | Published September 20, 2023

A scary farmer reaches their hand out at Stalker Farms, Washington

📸 : Stalker Farms Haunted Attractions | Stocker Farms

Are you  a freak for fall ? Ready for a Halloweentime right of passage? A  trip to a haunted house  is perfect fodder for a good date, especially a first date. (Long lines + trauma bonding = a chance you’ll have a plus one for Christmas.) So, ghouls and goblins, we’ve got a guide to some  local forsaken sites  that have yet to be forbidden. But beware, some horrors follow you home.

Haunted houses sell out fast 👻

Buy tickets online in advance. Most have wait times and don’t offer refunds. Check in with locations directly for accessibility information. 

Georgetown Morgue

YouTube video

📆 Friday, September 22nd – Saturday, November 4th 📍 Georgetown Morgue: 5000 E Marginal Way S, Seattle 🎟 Starts @ $35

Want a haunted house in a location with an allegedly  creepy history ? Put  Georgetown Morgue  on your list.  

Billed as one of the “most intriguing historic urban morgues,” the Georgetown Morgue claims to have a gruesome history. In addition to serving as a morgue and crematorium, the morgue’s owners suggest the site has been the home of a missing body—later found dismembered—and other deaths. That includes the alleged “ Seattle crematorium massacre ,” where the morgue’s haunted house operators say that in October 1968, armed assailants  forced   all nine of the morgue’s staff members into a crematorium chamber . Leaving everyone as  ash . ( Evidence supporting this story is scant .)

The rumored morgue history serves as the backdrop to a terrifying Halloween experience. Your ticket gets you into  a walkthrough attraction  in the style of a  catacomb , where creatures (actors) roam. For those who want to experience more fear, add a new  dark maze experience  for an extra $8 a ticket. You and your group will try to flee a pitch-black maze. Good luck. (Leave young ones at home, as kids under 12 are prohibited.) 

Free parking  is available, with public transportation nearby. The experience is wheelchair accessible. No drinking is allowed, but there are plenty of spots nearby. Remember there’s a  “no touch” policy  (you don’t touch them; they don’t touch you). Because of their reputation as one of the best scares, the lines are often long—but there’s a  VIP line  for an additional charge. 

🎟 BUY TICKETS 🎟 

Frighthouse Station

YouTube video

📆 Friday, September 29th – Saturday, November 4th 📍 Freighthouse Square:   626 East 25th Street, Tacoma 🎟 Starts @ $17

Descend into the depths of the sea where  creatures from the dark come to life  at  Frighthouse Station , located at Freighthouse Square near the Tacoma Dome. This haunt visits the seaside village of Ammet Bay, where locals have returned from unspeakable terrors beneath the waves. With creepy set and character designs, this  H.P. Lovecraft-inspired spookfest  is a special nightmare. 

While the organizers behind Frighthouse recommend no one under 12 visits, they do offer a “ Wand of Courage ” for the faint of heart. For an added $5 fee, you can equip yourself with a wand where, if you raise it and yell, “Back, evil thing! I command you!” you’ll make the monsters  retreat . (If you don’t follow the instructions correctly, they’ll still pursue.) An “ Ultimate Fright Pass ” gets you faster access (less waiting in line) and a swag bag of spooky souvenirs for $40. No drinking, smoking, or vaping allowed. Also, no flash photography. This location is wheelchair accessible with assistance. 

Stalker Farms

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by 𝐒𝐓𝐀𝐋𝐊𝐄𝐑 𝐅𝐀𝐑𝐌𝐒™️ (@stalkerfarms)

📆 Saturday, September 30th – Sunday, October 29th 📍 Stocker Farms: 8705 Marsh Rd, Snohomish 🎟 Starts @ $28.95

Billed as Washington’s “original haunted corn trails,” Stocker Farms’  Stalker Farms  is another spot with multiple attractions. 

The “ Slasher Family Homestead ” and “ Pogo’s Funny Farm ” are full of torments for the fearless, featuring traditional haunted experiences like scary clowns and chainsaw-wielding creeps. The farm also offers  a non-haunted nighttime corn maze  that’s good for kids, plus a giant jumping pillow, ball toss zone, farmer foosball, and fire pits for rent. A  VIP option , which includes a third haunted trail, “ Eski’s Dark Harvest ,” and a “ shooting gallery ,” is available. Hang out in the midway space before or after to enjoy food vendors, carnival-style gaming, and live entertainment on busy nights. 

Heads-up: Wheelchairs are allowed, but accessibility could be an issue. All attractions are outside, so there can be mud, bugs, corn stalks, uneven ground, fog, and, yes, rain! A  flash sale starts on September 25th, with online tickets at 30% off. 

Nightmare on 9

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Thomas Family Farm (@thomasfamilyfarm)

📆 Saturday, September 30th – Sunday, October 29th 📍 Thomas Family Farm: 9010 Marsh Rd, Snohomish 🎟 Starts @ $31

Come here for a  one-stop spooky spot  for everyone. Thomas Family Farm’s  Nightmare on 9  experience admits you to multiple attractions. First is the “ Vogel Institute ,” an indoor haunted house operating on the farm since 2012. Then there’s “ The Haunted Trail ,” a quarter-mile-long walk through the imagined ghost town of “Blackreach.” And the “ Zombie Paintball ” ride lets you shoot ghouls back into their graves. Want something without monsters? Try the “ Night Corn Maze .” 

Most activities are for ages 12 and over, with kids under eight not allowed. But onsite, there’s free access to a  nighttime pumpkin patch ,  food court , and  general store . You can even rent a  fire pit . For those old enough to drink, there’s a  beer garden . (Helpful if you need some bravery.) Parking is available, and a fast pass can be purchased to reduce wait times. Receive a discount plus free admission to the corn maze if you combine two or three activities. 

Fright Fest

Federal Way

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Wild Waves Theme & Water Park (@wildwavespark)

📆 Friday, October 6th – Sunday, October 29th 📍 Wild Waves: 36201 Enchanted Pkwy S, Federal Way 🎟 Starts @ $35

A family-friendly theme and water park by day—beware,  the fright comes out at night . Popular with teens, Wild Waves’  Fright Fest  has multiple terror-inducing attractions. 

The “ Chamber of Souls ” serves as a traditional haunted house. Make your way through ghouls, corpses, and a zombie outbreak. Then head to “ Camp Whispering Pines ,” a trail where tortured camp counselors and slaughtered campers abound. The “ Voodoo Swamp ” is a shadowy bog full of creepy crawlers and curses. The first two come with admission, but the swamp costs an extra five bucks. 

To reduce wait times, a VIP pass  includes a separate line, the three haunted attractions, plus four thrill rides. Rollercoaster after, anyone? For those under 13 (or anyone who wants fun without fear), there is “ Booville ,” a kid-friendly, scare-free area with games, a magic show, and a Halloween costume contest. Tip: Plan to carpool due to paid parking. Buy tickets in advance because reservations are required.

What to do around Seattle this week: ‘This Is Halloween,’ haunted houses

As the chills of October slowly appear, the ones who rejoice in the spookiest month cheer: “Hip hip!” for pillowcases soon to be full of candy and costumes so good they cause a fright, a “Hooray!” for decorations delightful and dandy — and an event where you can see an adaptation of one of the season’s dearest films through Halloween night!

Inspired by Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” Can Can and The Triple Door present “This Is Halloween,” described by Can Can’s artistic director Chris Pink as “an engaging multimedia spooktacular with deep collaborative roots across musical, dance, comedy and visual categories that are hard to come by in our creative medium.”

What began 15 years ago as an opportunity to “pay homage to our love for all things Burton” with a large cast, comedic slapstick antics and heavy visuals has become “a living, breathing, mutating organism that creates itself year after year,” Pink said.

Similar to the film, “This Is Halloween” follows the misadventures of Jack Skellington, the pumpkin king and most-acclaimed citizen of Halloween Town. This lively adaptation follows Jack as he stumbles upon Christmas Town and schemes to take over the holiday. Attendees may recognize the likes of Sally, Dr. Finkelstein and even Jack’s longtime rival, Oogie Boogie.

Not so similar to the film, this naughty nightmare features a lot more glitter and a lot less clothing. Theater and dance combine with cabaret- and burlesque-production stylings to move the plot along until the very end, all while providing an incredibly enjoyable comedic show for guests.

“We incorporate the ever-changing world around us, relevant topics and pop references,” Pink said, represented through well-timed jokes and risqué innuendos. The laughs and hoots and hollers of audience members in response serve as a reminder that this show is really meant for mature audiences.

If that all doesn’t sound convincing enough, every seat in the theater has access to dinner service. Thai-inspired menu items, drinks and desserts are provided by Wild Ginger, The Triple Door’s sister restaurant.

The seating at The Triple Door consists of booths and “countertop” seating, which is akin to table seating. There is not a bad seat in the house. Ticket prices range from $32 to $54, depending on what time, day and seat you choose.

“The show has had so many years to mold, bend, toss and turn and revive itself year after year. However, at the end of the day, it’s just damn good time … . She’s a Frankenstein that comes to life once a year to remind people to not take themselves too seriously, love one another and just have fun,” Pink said.

“This Is Halloween” runs through Oct. 31 at The Triple Door (216 Union St., Seattle). Early evening shows are for ages 17 and over, and late shows are for ages over 21. Find tickets, showtimes and more information at thetripledoor.net.

Teens and adults, the rest of this roundup is for you! Leave the young ones at home and check out these not-so-family-friendly spooktacular events.

Queen Anne ‘Stranger Things’ house takes Halloween to another world

SEATTLE — A Queen Anne home is flipped upside down. Well, it was flipped into the Upside Down, as the owners transformed the house and front yard into the terrifying setting in Netflix’s show ‘Stranger Things’. 

It’s the fifth year the homeowner has gone all out for Halloween. Last year, the trick-or-treater numbers hit the hundreds for Richard Knowles’s III home, but this is the first time he’s recreated the Netflix hit.

“Last year we had about anywhere between a thousand and 1,100,” said Richard. “It’s part of the show where you’re in Vecna’s mind basically, that’s the bad guy. Right before he goes and kills you.”

But Vecna’s mind wasn’t built in a day.

“I started those demogorgons about four or five months ago. It took a while. Those were the first things I did and then I just little by little over the last two months I’ve been building the rest of it,” said Richard.

In past years Richard’s home has been transformed into the Bates Motel and the Rosebud Motel. He said it took over a week to put the pieces together and assemble the display. It’s something his neighbors look forward to each year.

“I did come ready to take a picture of it. I am going to actually message it out to my team at work so they can enjoy it,” said Susan Campbell, who lives nearby. “The attention to detail is amazing.”

Richard, when asked why he goes all out for Halloween using almost fifty cans of spray foam, paper mache, and hot glue, said it’s because he likes seeing how creative the kids get trick-or-treating.

“One kid was a washing machine last year the laundry was like turning. It was so crazy he made it all by himself,” he said.

Richard’s setup doesn’t stop at the front porch, there is a little walk-thru haunted house.

Secret Seattle

The Top 10 Most Haunted Places In Seattle

Get ready to be seriously spooked.

Kelly Dougher

Seattle is a nearly 200 year old city, so it stands to reason that it has accumulated some ghost stories (and maybe even some actual ghosts) over the decades. In honor of spooky season, we compiled our own research and experiences to bring you Secret Seattle’s picks for the most haunted places in Seattle. Then we also asked our followers on Instagram for their suggestions. In the end we wound up with quite a comprehensive list.

Read on for some of the creepiest places that you can visit in Seattle.

First, our picks for the most haunted places in Seattle:

1. kells irish restaurant.

View this post on Instagram

Said by some to be the most haunted bar in America , Kells Irish Restaurant was built in the 1900s over a mortuary and is still open in downtown Seattle today. They’re hosting a bar crawl this Halloween so put on your costume and go for a pint and an interaction with one of the pub’s resident ghosts.

2. Ghost Alley Espresso

This espresso shop located under Pike Place Market has a well-established history of hauntings and even its own resident ghost. Read all about the haunted Ghost Alley Espresso .

3. The Seattle underground

Did you know that Seattle still has an extensive underground network that dates back to the city’s origins? You can take a spooky underground paranormal tour if you’re feeling confident.

4. Hotel Sorrento

haunted house jobs seattle

Seattle actually has several haunted hotels but our favorite may be Hotel Sorrento. It was built in 1909 and is known today for its resident ghost Alice B. Toklas who was credited with inventing pot brownies back in the 1950s. How very Seattle. You can party with the ghosts this Halloween at Hotel Sorrento’s Ghostly Gala .

5. Moore Theater

Moore Theater is a historic and active theater in downtown Seattle that is known for its paranormal activity. It opened in 1907 and sits atop a cemetery. The theater was even investigated in an episode of Ghost Hunters. Just make sure to hold onto your belongings if you see a show there; items are known to go missing at the Moore Theater.

And now for what Seattleites say are the most haunted places in Seattle:

haunted house jobs seattle

6. Comet Lodge Cemetery

One Seattleite suggested Comet Lodge Cemetery and we have to agree. It’s no wonder that this cemetery in Beacon Hill has a spooky reputation, considering its tragic history. The cemetery and those who rest there have been disturbed repeatedly throughout the years. The most egregious incident was when the city turned large swaths of the cemetery into housing and a dog run.

7. Aurora Antique Pavilion

Another Seattleite nominated this massive antique store next to the Burlington Coat Factory on Hwy 99. Considering the fact that it’s 30,000 square feet of previously-owned vintage items, we think the chances are good that this place has seen a haunting or two in its time.

8. Maltby Cemetery

A Seattleite suggested this cemetery that is actually located in the nearby suburb of Woodinville. Considered by some to be the most haunted cemetery in Washington state, we think it’s worth the trip if you’re into spooky places. Just don’t expect to be able to descend the “Thirteen Steps to Hell” because they have been demolished.

9. The Georgetown Morgue

It’s unsurprising that the Georgetown Morgue was suggested by Seattleites as one of the most haunted places in Seattle. After all it was ranked as one of the top 13 scariest haunted houses in the country . The morgue turns into a haunted experience every Halloween, but make sure to read about its disturbing history before you decide to visit.

10. The streets around Seattle University

The Seattleite who suggested this location may know something that the rest of us don’t. It makes sense that the streets around Seattle University may be haunted, due to the many hospitals that line them. If you’re feeling brave, go check it out and let us know what you find.

Georgetown Morgue – Seattle Haunts

Seattle Premiere Haunted House Attraction Seattle Washington

logo-light

The Haunted House is located at the Georgetown Morgue in Seattle, Washington.

The Georgetown Morgue of Seattle is a facility for tragic stories of death. The morgue has a history of thousands of funeral preparations, cremations, and the processing of animal carcasses. The morgue holds what is considered to be the most horrifying unsolved crime in Seattle history. Nine of their staff were forced into the crematorium chamber. There were no surviving witnesses, nor were suspects ever identified.

Recently a gruesome stench has been filling the air around the Georgetown area. Word on the street is The infamous Dr. Simons has acquired The Georgetown Morgue and has ripped into the sewers below, unearthing a decrepit Catacomb. Rumors are surfacing of unlucky persons who have been captured by the Dr. and his trusted goons Rigor and Mortis. Be wary of their glowing toxic chemicals that have been turning up in neighboring ditches and seeping into drains! Now creatures have been roaming the streets at night. Are you missing any friends or family? Do you have the guts to investigate what is going on at The Georgetown Morgue and escape without losing your entrails?
