For the first time ever, the terrifying attractions at the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride experience have a universal theme. Welcome to the strange, fictitious town of Midnight Falls – where it is always Oct. 31, 1985. The Los Angeles Haunted Hayride was founded by Melissa Carbone and presented by Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group, with Plague Productions’ Jon Cooke joining this year as the new creative director.
Nightmare-inducing experiences from the depth of their imaginations include Roadkill Ranch, where dead varmints come back to life; the Midnight Mortuary, run for decades by the ghoulish Marlow family; Trick-or-Treat, which dishes out far more cruel tricks than sweet candy; and the Town Square, where residents morph into monstrous creatures as they celebrate their favorite holiday.
Guests who aren’t totally scared out of their wits and have enough sense left after surviving all of that can challenge their brain power in the Mini Escape Rooms. But be careful not to get locked in … The Haunted Hayride’s first departure is on Saturday, September 28, and also new this year, will continue running one-way trips to Midnight Falls until through Nov. 2, a.k.a. Day of the Dead).
