Silverwood Theme Park & Boulder Beach Water Park
If Halloween events were films, this would be Spokane's mega-blockbuster summer movie. Think Avatar. Complete with a train ride through the Zombie Apocalypse, this high-production attraction sees Silverwood's 200-acre park overrun by crazed zombies, demented clowns and chainsaw-wielding madmen. Watch your step, because these motley characters lie at every turn.
* Not recommended for young children, contact Silverwood directly with questions.

To register, call Inland Empire Tours at (509) 747-1335 or (888) 654-8367.
Green Bluff Farms
Nothing says Halloween like a glowing jack-o'-lantern. And how you find your pumpkin is just as important as how you carve it. Skip the grocery store variety and head to Green Bluff Farms, where you'll find picturesque pumpkin patches accompanied by corn mazes, hay rides, fresh cider and other u-pick goodies.
Schedule Your Visit
Groups who visit Claustropanic are placed in a staged "Adventure Room" where they are given clues, decipher codes, puzzles and riddles to try to escape. Clautropanic is open year-round, but what better time than the Halloween season to star in your own horror movie? Visit their website to learn more and book a visit.
