This year, the haunted hayride will transform Griffith Park into Midnight Falls, a mysterious fictitious village set in 1985, where time is at a standstill and every day is Halloween. New and revamped attractions for this year’s event will include:

Midnight Falls Town Square

Located in the center of the small town, the annual Midnight Falls Halloween Festival will come to life through decorations, Jack O’ Lanterns and glowing orange lights. The Town Square will have a stage for live entertainment, food and beverage booths, a psychic and Midnight Falls townsfolk lurking about – like the City Councilman and Pageant Queen.

Midnight Mortuary Haunted House

The mysterious house at the end of the street looms over Midnight Falls. Owned and operated by the Marlow family for years, guests can tour the local funeral home to reveal its dark secrets.

Roadkill Ranch

On the outskirts of Midnight Falls, an open-air maze awaits. At Roadkill Ranch, ranch hands are collecting the main highway’s deceased varmints. However, their methods of disposal come back to bite them as characters come back to life and haunt the visitors as they traverse through a barn, cornfields, and haystacks.


This unique take on a traditional haunted house tells of trick-or-treaters going door-to-door at 12 local homes in Midnight Falls. Guests will soon realize that these ghoulish residents have more tricks than treats.

In the foothills of Midnight Falls, this crowd favorite will lead to a frightening adventure filled with the horrors afflicting the town. Out in the darkness, a portal has opened, releasing hideous creatures from its rotten mouth. Are you brave enough to board the Hayride and witness the spirit of Halloween?

Escape Rooms

Attendees also have the option to experience three individually themed, short-play escape rooms at an additional cost of $5 per game.
