CANCELLED: Haunted Trails at Bastyr University


UPDATE: THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED. Bastyr University’s annual “Haunted Trails” event returns for another year of spooky fun! Hosted rain or shine in the forest behind Bastyr University’s Kenmore campus for two consecutive Fridays and Saturdays in October (14-15 and 21-22), the event, now in its 18th year, is one of the Eastside’s longest-running and biggest fright fests. This year’s event has activities for teens and adults in the spooky Haunted Trails, while kids 8 and younger trick-or-treat and play games in the Carnival. All tickets sales benefit student study-abroad programs. Events for Ages 8 and Older Haunted Woods: Tour scenes inspired by Dante Alighieri’s “Inferno.” Try not to get too confused in by the ghostly wanderers in limbo because you have to get through even greater distractions in lust, the flesh eaters in gluttony, those in power in greed, the fallen angels in wrath, and the murderers lurking in violence. Just when you think you are safe terrifying demons are expecting you before you meet the devil himself. Hopefully you will not end up frozen in fear. Haunted Graveyard: Should the devil allow you to pass back into the world of the living you first must travel through the land of the dead, where monsters unimaginable await. Please note: We do not allow children under 8 into these events and we strongly recommend that children under 10 do not attend. This event can be traumatizing to younger ones, which is NOT our intent. We only want to give the adults nightmares! Cost: $20 in person for all five events. Major credit cards accepted. Tickets are available at the event starting at 6:30 pm, or online.
