Just when you thought Halloween 2020 was a goner, Hauntoween LA has saved the day with a fun, immersive, interactive—and most importantly safe—family-friendly Halloween drive-thru in Woodland Hills, Calif.
The 25- to 35-minute experience will immerse families in the holiday’s spooky traditions and candy-fueled excitement, all in a COVID-safe environment. Guests will drive through themed installations, including Jack-O’-Lantern tunnel with over 1,000 brightly lit pumpkins and a blacklight tunnel that pays tribute to FX’s Emmy-nominated series “What We Do in the Shadows” (seasons 1 and 2). Plus, socially-distanced photo and multi-cam video ops sent via email will allow guests to share the whole experience in a safe, contactless environment.
This one-of-a-kind Halloween event was created by Experiential Supply, the same award-winning company that has planned large-scale, immersive experiences for Hollywood blockbusters like “IT: Chapter 2,” “Ready Player One,” and “The LEGO Movie.”
“We can’t wait to show off our creation with all of Los Angeles,” says Experiential Supply founder & chief experience officer, Jasen Smith. “The excitement and support have been overwhelming [and] there are a few surprises we haven’t announced yet!”
Hauntoween LA will include an interactive pumpkin patch with one pumpkin per vehicle to take home (additional pumpkins are available for purchase) and live musical performances by The BeatBuds at select surprise times. As for treats, costumed and safely-masked actors will provide in-vehicle “door to door” trick-or-treating on a two-street, 10- to 12-house decorated neighborhood (with plenty of wrapped candy for the kids).
Also joining the spooky celebration is the one-stop-(Halloween)-shop, Party City, through installations along “Party City Lane” created with (what else?) Party City products.
“Despite an already scary year, there are still reasons to celebrate and plenty of new ways to make the season spooktacular,” says Party City chief marketing and experience officer Julie Roehm. “Party City shares the same mission to help families continue to celebrate Halloween safely, so we are so thrilled to support the inaugural Hauntoween LA.”
Hauntoween LA will be open daily Oct. 9-31, 2020, from 3-9 p.m. PT at 6100 Topanga Canyon Blvd., Woodland Hills, Calif.
