Georgetown Morgue Haunted House
500 E. Marginal Way, Seattle
Dates and times vary, check website for more details.

The rich history of this building began in 1928 as a funeral preparation facility, but was later purchased in 1939 to become a 100-body per day crematorium. Needless to say, death was no stranger here, even more so when one of the most gruesome unsolved crimes on Seattle city record occurred Oct. 25, 1968. The morgue now welcomes you, if you dare, to discover the secrets of it's disturbing past, an evening filled with murderous theatrics, horror and screams, not for the faint at heart. Not recommended for children 12 and younger, but the morgue offers a Kids Day with the lights 1-4 p.m. Oct. 13.

My Morbid Mind Haunted House
4548 Marvin Rd. SE, Lacey

This annual haunted house began when a Halloween enthusiast and his family worked together to create the best Halloween display in town, complete with a full backyard haunt. From there, it evolved into a nearby barn to become the horrifying and highly rated haunted attraction that it is today, complete with props, animatronics, pneumatics and tons of special effects. This haunted house is not kid-friendly, but be sure to bring them by on Halloween night from 5-6:45 p.m. where the lights will be on and the creatures will hand out candy.

Admission starts at $9/person
