Ready to get seriously spooked? If you’re looking for something other than a haunted corn maze, you can visit Seattle’s favorite haunted house starting this week. That’s right folks, the Georgetown Morgue is back for another year of terrifying haunts that you won’t soon forget.
The Georgetown Morgue is a unique building aside from hosting one of Seattle’s best and most iconic haunted houses. It of course has a history of death and is also the site of one of Seattle’s most gruesome crimes on record. Just what happened you may ask?
On October 25th, 1968, the entire facility staff of Broughton Brothers Funeral Services was bound and forced into the crematorium chamber by an unidentified individual. There were no surviving witnesses and no suspects were ever identified. It’s believed that the motive had something to do with less-than-legitimate business practices at the funeral home. Yikes!

With a history like that, it’ll be hard for you to tell whether you’re seeing actors or vengeful ghosts as you navigate the halls of this haunted house. Especially because word on the street is that a new owner has taken over and unearthed a decrepit Catacomb for you to discover. Be wary of Dr. Simons and his trusted goons Rigor and Mortis as you try to survive a night of frights.
Now if you really can’t handle being chased around the morgue you can still check out a slightly less scary option. The morgue also offers a self-guided tour which allows you to navigate the haunted house without actors but beware because there still are some animatronics. With either option, you’re sure to leave seriously spooked.
Keep in mind that this haunted house is intended for folks 12 and older and please don’t attend if you think that being seriously scared might harm you. It’s also worth mentioning that if you want to avoid the long lines you can pay between $25-$100 to advance your spot in line or just be admitted entry as soon as you arrive.
If you’d like to snag tickets or learn more you can visit the morgue’s website. Enjoy and don’t scare yourself too silly.
