Friday and Saturday Nights in October
7:00pm – 11:00pm

Remember the flood back in 1975 that killed thousands of farm animals near Lake Stevens? Followed by dazzling meteor shower that rained over the valley, turning the flood waters into a boiling, radioactive sludge? That was when the Swamp Monster was born. The rotting remains that kept the Monster and its freakish companions alive for decades were thought to be long gone and the creatures themselves long considered dead. However, the disappearance of a rancher and his livestock has caused many to wonder. Some locals have even linked the mystery to the recent reports of noxious odors emanating from the Snohomish valley. The Haunted Swamp Corn Maze gives you a chance to conduct your own search in the dark…if you dare. Now in its second year, the haunted maze is frightening and fun for anyone seeking spine-chilling romp. This event is scary! Not recommended for children under 12. Tickets are $13.00 (all ages).
