Screams will be heard across Lake Ballinger at 11 terror-filled shows, including Oct. 9, 10, 16, 17, 22, 23, 24, 29, 30, 31 and Nov. 1. Shows run from 7 to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights and 7 to 10 p.m. on Thursday and Sunday nights. Tickets are $15 or $20 for a faster VIP line and can be purchased online or on-site at the box office.
Those who survive the various haunted houses will love catching their breath in the Food and Fear Garden. Exclusive Haunted Nightmare merchandise and photo-ops will be available as well as plenty of food, sweets and beverages (including frothy evil elixirs for guests 21 and over).
Mark your calendars for the Nile Halloween Family Funfest on Sunday, Oct. 25. From 3 to 8 p.m., the Haunted Nightmare creatures retreat to their coffins, caves and crypts, allowing families to enjoy a much tamer haunted house experience. Admission is just $10. Halloween candy awaits those children brave enough to experience the various haunted attractions. Bouncy houses, cotton candy and face painting will entertain the children while mom and dad enjoy a car show, vendor booths and plenty of great food.
Darkness sets the stage for the return of the ever-popular “Fright Light Night” on Nov. 1. On this final night of haunting, the Nile’s haunted grounds go pitch-black, leaving you with only your cunning and a special finger flashlight (available at the box office) to guide the way.
The haunted house is located adjacent to I-5 off Exit 177 at Nile Shrine Golf Center, 6601 244th St. SW., Mountlake Terrace. For tickets and info, visit https://www.HauntedNightmare.com. Haunted Nightmare at the Nile is a volunteer-driven, non-profit event benefiting the Nile Shriners.
