🎟 Starts @ $17

Descend into the depths of the sea where creatures from the dark come to life at Frighthouse Station, located at Freighthouse Square near the Tacoma Dome. This haunt visits the seaside village of Ammet Bay, where locals have returned from unspeakable terrors beneath the waves. With creepy set and character designs, this H.P. Lovecraft-inspired spookfest is a special nightmare. 

While the organizers behind Frighthouse recommend no one under 12 visits, they do offer a “Wand of Courage” for the faint of heart. For an added $5 fee, you can equip yourself with a wand where, if you raise it and yell, “Back, evil thing! I command you!” you’ll make the monsters retreat. (If you don’t follow the instructions correctly, they’ll still pursue.) An “Ultimate Fright Pass” gets you faster access (less waiting in line) and a swag bag of spooky souvenirs for $40. No drinking, smoking, or vaping allowed. Also, no flash photography. This location is wheelchair accessible with assistance.
