Every year, Potter’s staff convert the grounds of their garden centre into Potter House of Horrors – one of the best-haunted houses in the lower mainland. Their maze of terror combines animatronics, digital sounds, trained actors and high-tech scares to chill the spines of anyone who dares to enter.
I love Halloween, and Potter’s – located in Surrey, BC – is one of my favourite haunted houses in the lower mainland, and now that I’m a parent of a young child I want to share Halloween fun with Dylan, but I worry that most attractions out there are too scary for a four-year-old.
There’s so much family fun going on here in Surrey, and in WhiteRock and Delta for that matter. From festivals, to pumpkin patches to farm tours, there’s always something to do here. But I digress…
I’ve been going to Potters for years – as a matter of fact, my first visit was one of my very first blog posts – and every year they get better. I was so happy when they introduced Li’l Haunters – a kids-only attraction that’s not too dark or scary. It’s the perfect introduction to the joys of Halloween. So, together with Guncle Josh, we planned our outing to Potters.
House #1, Mystic Village, includes a slightly creepy ghost town that sets the tone for fun to follow with the magic and mystery of House #2, Spooky Castle. Dylan loves pirates right now, so he loved the houses. He was fascinated, not scared.
New for 2017: a fun basketball/ baseball toss and table games including air hockey, foosball and table hockey. There’s even a bouncy castle.

Of course, for the adults, Potters has two ultra-scary attractions:
House #1 Monstrosity. Back by popular demand, Monstrosity is sure to delight horror fans who enjoy a good creepy walk through pure gothic madness. Features nasty creatures, spooky surprises and scary fun… oh, and possibly even an evil clown or two.
House #2 NEW FOR 2017 Devil’s Descent. A terrifying vortex of rotted wood, rickety mine-shafts, punishing industrial machines, monsters and zombies.
Think you’re brave enough?
