a Halloween Guide
The sun dips low in the sky on these crisp fall evenings, and the trees are exploding with red and gold, which puts Spokane in the mood for some creepy, crawly fun. Halloween frights range from finding the gnarliest pumpkin for the perfect jack-o-lantern to scare-your-pants-off haunted locales. Here is a guide to local Halloween haunts.
Scarywood Haunted Nights
Thur-Sat, Sept. 29-Oct. 28
Silverwood Theme Park & Boulder Beach Water Park
Not for the faint of heart, Scarywood is the region’s most spine chilling, scream inducing experience. Featured on the Travel Channel’s “Halloweens Scariest Thrills”, Scarywood is a theme park turned fright factory. Brave the five haunted attractions and seven scare zones while you push yourself over the edge on the park’s signature nightmarish thrill rides.
Riverside State Park, Abandoned Seven Mile Airstrip
It’s not just houses that are haunted in Spokane. A hike in the woods takes a dark turn as murderous zombies take over the normally peaceful trails of Riverside State Park. Wear sturdy shoes for the trails, and because you never know when you will need to run for your life!
Spokane Zombie Crawl and Zombie Con
The Bing Theater
Join your fellow lovers of the undead for all things zombie. The day will be filled with costume contests for young and old, make-up artists, and all the zombie gear you can shake a dismembered finger at. The Annual Zombie Crawl lurches through the streets, and watering holes, of Spokane once the night has fallen and they can emerge under the cover of darkness.
Pumpkin Picking at Green Bluff
Green Bluff Farms
Nothing says Halloween like a glowing jack-o-lantern. Finding that perfect gourd can be just as much fun as creating its maniacal mug. Skip the grocery store and head to Green Bluff for picturesque pumpkin patches, along with mind bending corn mazes, hay rides, fresh cider and plenty of u-pick goodies.
Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox
The Spokane Symphony is sending you back to class at The Hogwarts School. Learn about secret potions and sacred spells before you receive a musical lesson on the world of Harry Potter and other creepy classics. Be prepared to meet ghosts, dementors and other ghastly beasts during the preshow trick-or-treating.
Ghost Tours of Spokane
Two Dog Tours
Learn about Spokane's haunted, murderous and scandalous past with a bus or walking tour through the historically haunted downtown, the deadly South Hill or the underground east side. Hear the unnerving tales of devilish beings who have made Spokane their final resting place with a cruise through blood-chilling cemeteries.
River Park Square Mall and Mobius Kids
Halloween fun can be had by even the littlest ghosts and ghouls. Children can make not-so scary crafts and play spooky games before trick-or-treating through the mall stores.
