Seattle offers tons of events and activities for Halloween—ghost tours, haunted houses, and trick-or-treating. Not to mention wild parties at numerous Seattle clubs and venues, especially at Pioneer Square and Capitol Hill neighborhoods.
Fright Fest at Wild Waves Theme & Water Park (canceled in 2020)
Fright Fest at Wild Waves Theme & Water Park invites visitors of all ages for six weekends of Halloween-inspired fun. Family by Day activities for little ones run from noon to 6 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. But by night, the park gets genuinely frightening. So the time from 6 pm to 7 pm Fridays through Sundays is reserved for older kids and those who are not afraid to encounter monsters. Three haunted attractions are also not recommended for small children. SCARE-a-oke fun takes place every Friday night.
Georgetown Morgue Haunted House (September 25–November 14, 2020)
The Haunted House located at the Georgetown Morgue is one of the scariest Halloween attractions in Seattle. The Georgetown Morgue of Seattle witnessed thousands of funeral preparations and cremations. The frightening story tells that nine morgue staffers were forced into the crematorium chamber and burned. Also, the notorious Dr. Simons has acquired the Georgetown Morgue and discovered catacombs underneath that might contain glowing toxic chemicals. Will you dare to investigate what is going on at the Georgetown Morgue?
