If you like scary haunted houses, you’ll love the Scream Train!
- Potter’s House of Horrors – Two amazing haunted venues at 12530 72nd Avenue. The same as last year, in 2018 one house is “Monstrosity” and the other “Devils Descent”.” Both are open for most of October and are very scary. Family hour is more appropriate for all ages and runs at various times in the late afternoons. The scarier stuff runs daily from 7 or 7:30 until around 10 pm. This is one of the Lower Mainland’s best haunted houses and worth waiting in the long line-ups for. Highly recommended!
