One of the biggest haunted houses in Metro Vancouver returns to Surrey next month.

Every fall, Potter’s House and Nursery in Surrey becomes Potter’s House of Horrors, as it converts its grounds from an enjoyable, plant-filled garden centre into a maze of terror with all the latest animatronics, digital sounds, high-tech scares and trained actors.

Now in its 16th year, the “scare crew” at Potters spends months creating its annual maze of terror, which comes complete with the latest high-tech animatronics, digital sounds, and trained actors.

The attraction opens on October 6 and runs right through until (and including) Halloween.

But Potters is more than simply just a single haunted house. In fact, this year includes the following haunting attractions:

  • Monstrosity 2.0: The ever-popular Monstrosity house is back and better than ever, updated with brand new scares and animatronics. Prepare yourself for spooky surprises and scary fun — and possibly an evil clown or two
  • Devil’s Descent: A terrifying vortex of rotted wood, rickety mineshafts, punishing industrial machines, monsters and zombies. The Potter’s “chicken counter” is sure to rack up a ton of “bok-boks” when people run screaming out of the exits
  • This year introduces Grimes Square, a terrifying, new, ultra-creepy entranceway in front of the haunted houses. Come see Potter’s House of Horrors’ haunted take on New York’s 42nd Street theatre district and Times Square

In addition to the two haunted house options, there is other frightening fun to be had:

  • Escape room: Attendees have 20 minutes to escape a “burning” building, complete with smoke effects and annoying neighbours
  • Haunted Photo Booth: Three freakish photos sent directly to your phone or email.
  • Xtreme Paintball Haunted Shootout: Shoot 50 rounds at haunted props and spooky animatronics
  • Concession items include neon cotton candy and haunted hotdogs (just regular hotdogs, but they sound much cooler when we tell people they’re haunted!)
  • Coffin Ride: Experience what it’s like to be buried in a coffin

All told, if you were seeking out that special place to help you get in the (haunted) spirit of the Halloween season, then Potter’s House of Horrors in Surrey is the place to be.

Partial proceeds go to Critter Care Wildlife Society. In addition, Potter’s House of Horrors is proud to support the Surrey Food Bank and will be accepting non-perishable food donations onsite.
