Nightmare at Beaver Lake
Currently in its 14th year, the Nightmare at Beaver Lake is the Sammamish Rotary's main fundraiser and community service project. It is produced in affiliation with Scare Productions and the City of Sammamish

Patrons walk approximately ¾ of a mile along the trails of Beaver Lake Park and are entertained by 23 separate theatrical sets filled with actors in full makeup and costumes. 
Over 125 volunteers are required each night to scare 13,000 patrons during the 11 night run of the show. Approximately 70% of the actors are local high school students.  
This all volunteer charity haunt enables the Sammamish Rotary to support local and international charities, and award college scholarships to students from the three Sammamish High Schools.


About The Nightmare:
(Excerpt from the Nightmare's site)

In early 2004 the Rotary Club of Sammamish decided to create a unique haunted adventure. The goal was to create a project that would involve the city's teenagers both as constructors and customers. 

They gathered help from Scare Productions, Valour Designs, the Sammamish Youth Board, the Skyline High School Key Club, Eastlake High School DECA, the City of Sammamish, and people from our community.


Several things make our haunt unique. Visitors wind their way through both outdoor and indoor scenes. Each set provides a theatrical experience including live actors. From construction to acting to security, Nightmare at Beaver Lake is run by hundreds of volunteers.

That first year nearly 4000 people screamed their way through Beaver Lake Park in just four nights. In 2005 we saw more scenes and an even larger attendance. By 2006 we had extended the trail to nearly 3/4 of a mile and attendance had swelled to over 8,000. By 2011 we had nearly 12,000 visitors to our asylum over 10 nights who donated over 2,500 pounds of food!
