The Los Angeles Haunted Hayride is back in full force starting Saturday, Sept. 29 to celebrate 10 years of the popular haunt event.
This year’s hayride will introduce new surprises and additions that commemorate the 10th anniversary, perfect for both hayride veterans and new victims.
“I can’t believe it’s been ten years!” said Melissa Carbone, founder and creator of Los Angeles Haunted Hayride. “I want to send out the biggest ‘Thank You’ to everyone who has bought a ticket, worked for us and given their blood to make LA Haunted Hayride the most popular independently owned Halloween attraction in the country.”
When visiting the Haunted Hayride, the evening will include a stop in “Purgatory.” This old world “haunted village” will bring back the nostalgia of Halloweens past, with the smell of hay and the deep orange glow of jack o’ lanterns.
Guests can become a part of the horror show at Theatre Macabre, take a ride on the “Scary-Go-Round,” enjoy fair food and drink at the Grub Shack, encounter a psychic, and purchase limited-run anniversary merchandise in the Bootique.
Returning for the 10th anniversary are cult favorites “House of Shadows” and “Trick Or Treat.” The “House of Shadows” will send guests into complete darkness as they stumble through the disorienting, claustrophobic dark maze. At “Trick Or Treat,” it’s Halloween every night, as all-new ghoulish residents are turning up the fright factor at this block party.
“Bringing back the content that the fans have told us they love and want more of is my way of [saying ‘Thank you’]. I’m so excited to see the incredible characters of the past,” said Carbone.
The terror begins on Sept. 29, and the Haunted Hayride will be open on select nights through Oct. 31. The event will run on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 7 p.m. – 10:30 p.m., and Fridays and Saturdays from 7 p.m. – 12 a.m. On Sept. 29, the event will close at 11 p.m.
General admission and VIP passes that give guests the ability to skip lines are available, as well as a Platinum pass that includes VIP parking. There are also a limited number of Hayride Only passes that start at $26, but those are expected to sell out during the pre-sale.
Pre-sale for tickets will end on Sept. 1. To purchase your tickets, or to learn more about the event, visit LosAngelesHauntedHayride.com.
