Those wanting to venture out of the Tri-Cities for a spook, here’s a fun alternative just across the bridge in Surrey!
Potter’s House of Horrors – As a garden center, Potter’s is usually devoted to all things nature, but during Halloween, it’s the supernatural that’s on their minds. The annual Potter’s House of Horrors is full of all things grisly and grotesque, providing thrills and chills to all who dare to enter. Every year brings a new walk-through path of horror, but past years have included everything from nasty sewers to space-age terror to abandoned prisons and more. Roaming monsters and ghoulish scenes are always a constant, however, so fright-seekers must be sure to keep their wits about them should they want to make it out alive.
