Southern California spooky-season staple, THE LOS ANGELES HAUNTED HAYRIDE, is back for 2021 and better than ever! Opening on September 24th and running select nights through Halloween, LA HAUNTED HAYRIDE is returning to a new location within Griffith Park with the hayride, mazes, trick or treating, and more in tow. While we were very impressed with the quick pivot and pull-off of the drive-in format for 2020, we’re excited to see the event return to a reimagined version of its original format.
As in the previous seasons, guests will find themselves smack in the middle of Midnight Falls and its 13th annual Halloween Festival for 1985. However, this strange town is ALWAYS celebrating Halloween and it’s ALWAYS 1985. But that doesn’t stop the citizens from enjoying the festival’s bizarre celebratory offerings. Visiting the Midnight Falls residents in the town square, neighborhoods and exploring the local establishments reveals more of the strange and sinister secrets behind this eerie town. The Town Square of Midnight Falls is the epicenter of the festivities. While guests walk around between attractions or hang out to soak in the atmosFEAR various townsfolk from the Midnight Falls community roam the space interacting with guests and attending to their local business.
Within the foothills of Midnight Falls, The Hayride leads to a thrilling adventure of horrors afflicting the town. Out in the darkness, a portal has opened spilling hideous creatures from its rotted mouth. The spirit of Halloween comes to life surrounding helpless victims brave enough to board The Hayride. With summer’s end, as the leaves turn brown it is said the veil between the living and the dead is at its thinnest. The witch of the woods has cast her spell to summon the spirits of the underworld to cross over and assimilate into form using various objects found among town including decorations used for celebrating Halloween. The Witch commands her army of crops and flesh, dazed within the spell cast upon them, to seek revenge on the people that have cast her out.
A fan favorite, Trick-or-Treat, returns for the season as well as two additional walkthrough mazes, Midnight Mortuary and (new for 2021!) Dead End Diner.
