Advertiser Moss Chiropractic Having “Best Darn Haunted House” In Burien From 1-5pm This Halloween
Of all the Halloween events happening in Burien this Saturday, you won’t want to miss this one â€“ the 15th annual Haunted House at BTB Advertiser Moss Chiropractic, located at 612 SW 152nd.
The family-friendly fun will run from 1pm to 5pm.
Seems like Dr. Jonna Moss (pictured, left) just loves Halloween. She has since her childhood neighbor turned his house into a haunted house, and she knew that when she grew up she would do the same for other kids.
Moss’ lodge-like Chiropractic Clinic has lots of small rooms, which makes for the perfect haunted setting. This year’s visitors will enter from a castle faÃ§ade off SW 152nd to walk into a scary (but not too scary), gorey (but not too gorey) display of Halloween horrors which includes 15 staged rooms and 18 total displays of terror. Every room will be a different experience.
Visitors can expect to see zombies, pirates, witches, aliens, werewolfs, vampires and hippies (hippies? Since when were hippies considered scary?).
New to the haunted house this year will be professional lighting and professional special effects. Also for the first time ever, Moss patients will join the staff in scaring the little and big kids of Boorien.
This labor-of-love on the part of Dr. Moss and her 24 volunteers, including patients, staff and friends of staff started last Saturday when everyone met at her home to start painting and sorting the props, walls and other assorted elements. Since this is a working clinic, light decorating began Wednesday, working around the patients. On Friday (Oct. 30th), at 6:30pm, like clockwork, the truck hauling the props and walls will arrive at their door and everyone goes to work for the next four to five hours creating the rooms and displays. They’ll finalize the scary displays Halloween morning at 7am..and like magic, the castle doors will open at 1pm and remain open until 5pm. Tear down will precede a group dinner in costumes at Azteca Mexican Restaurant, compliments of Dr. Moss.
If you or the kids are too afraid to go inside, they will have candy outside for the ‘fraidy-cats.
Usually open for business on Saturdays, Moss Chiropractic will be closed for everything except scary-business on Halloween!
