Haunted Trails 2014 Brings Spooky Family Fun
14500 Juanita Drive NE
Kenmore, WA 98028
Bastyr University's annual Haunted Trails returns for another year of spooky fun! Hosted in the Kenmore campus forest the weekends of October 17-18 and 24-25, the event is one of the biggest scarefests in the area and includes frightfully enjoyable activities for teenagers and adults, as well as trick-or-treating for children ages 8 and younger. It's all for a worthy cause, as proceeds benefit student study-abroad programs.
Festivities begin with trick-or-reat in the campus garden from 5 to 6:45 p.m. for ages 8 and younger (cost is $5 per child), followed by the Children's Carnival from 5:30 to 9 p.m.
Then things get scary when the Haunted Trails open from 7 to 11 p.m. each Friday and Saturday night ($20 per person or $25 for FASTPASS). Events include:
- Haunted Woods
- Hades Labyrinth
- Circus of Horrors
- Cemetery Hill
- Mummy's Tomb
- Mad Hatter's shop with food and drinks
(Please note that we do not allow children under 8 into these events. We find that it traumatizes the younger ones which is not our intent. We only want to give the adults nightmares!)
Tickets are available in advance at hauntedtrailsbu.org or at the door starting at 6:30 p.m. A limited number of tickets are available each night. FASTPASS Tickets are now available (online only). For $25 you can book your tickets with a reserved time slot. Limited quantity available, so book your reservation now!
The second weekend, October 24-25, is very busy and tickets can sell out as early as 8:45 p.m. Visitors are advised to come the first weekend, Oct. 17-18, when lines are shorter.
