Fear lives at The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor as the torrid history of the haunted ship rises from the deep October 1 – November 1, 2015. In addition to Dark Harbor’s horrific new maze, Lullaby, that tells the tale of the ship’s youngest soul, Scary Mary, the annual fright festival is thrilled to unveil the all-new Anubis Paintball Adventure.

Those who dare will venture into the tombs of Anubis, the Greek Egyptian jackal-headed god of mummification and the afterlife. In Anubis’ underworld, guests will test their skills in an LED 3D paintball battle against the most terrifying gaggle of mummies, monsters and myths.

The brand new Lullaby maze will take guests on a frightening voyage with Dark Harbor’s youngest soul, Scary Mary, who has haunted the Queen Mary ever since her horrific drowning in the poolroom in 1952. Dark Harbor will also welcome the new Side Show of Freaks and Oddities and the Side Show Bar that will bring guests up close into the grotesque world of freaks.

The Ringmaster, The Captain and their band of spirits including Samuel the Savage, Graceful Gale, Half-Hatch Henry and Scary Mary will be joined by over 200 grizzly monsters and ghouls that will be plotting terrifying tricks and treats throughout the season of fear. Dark Harbor’s signature haunts Deadrise, Soulmate, B340, Circus and the Voodoo Village will be wrought with more horrific monsters than ever before.

Creatures and Hellish abominations of Apocalyptic proportions are waiting in this 6th year of the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride.

10304570_10154626157935158_6920206027018309959_n

The Los Angeles Haunted Hayride has become an Iconic Hollywood tradition that remains unparalleled and unmatched. This year, the extended trail is back bringing an entirely new twenty-five (25) minute experience to those who think they’ve “seen it all.” Armies of demonic forces and dark presences litter the grounds and are frantic to strike at their favorite “hayriders.” This year’s sets are truly spectacular as the creative team takes on new special effects challenges not yet done in the live haunted attraction realm that will make the most unique haunted attraction in LA a show stopping vision of Haunt, Creep, and Bone Chill.

The gibbering of mad men echo through the twisting halls of this insane asylum turned Temple to the Apocalypse. The Revelation scriptures scribbled on the walls, etched in deep by broken and bloodied fingernails. With the pages of Mystics in the hands of Psychotics, the inmates have crowned themselves Unholy Vessels of the great Horsemen, and sit in judgment of your flesh in the bowels of their House. They themselves, “The Horsemen” will be there in character, each room of their house embodying the four elemental apocalyptic terrors: Pestilence, War, Famine, and Death. Stand before them in judgement.

Don’t miss what FOX, NBC, CBS, ABC, MTV, G4, E, & Access Hollywood, have called “Terrifying and Awesome,” and Dread Central called “one of the most amazing spectacles I’ve ever seen in all my years of attending haunts.”

The Los Angeles Haunted Hayride is back for another fright filled Halloween season! Ride aboard a tractor-pulled wagon with a group of friends in the Haunted Hayride or venture into the mortifying In-Between maze or visit the Purgatory Side Show…if you dare!

The folklore and legend of “the real” births more terror than any horror mastermind can fabricate. The grounds of Griffith Park and beyond have been home to murder, torture, paranormal activity, serial killers, and abduction. The area surrounding the “Old Zoo” and “B Rock” has been called one of the most paranormally active sites in all of California. Now these and other actual events will come back to life at the Haunted Hayride, opening the portal to a river of lost souls that scream for revelation. They are dark. They are vicious. They are all around you.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 6.38.31 PM

The hayride calls on the hauntings of the real terror in history to rise from the darkest corners of hell to take possession of you. The ride is immersive with elaborate sets and characters throughout.

While playing in the woods surrounding the Old Zoo, the Clifton Twins discovered a strange playmate – a little boy named Aleister. The boy had no family, no one could understand how he had survived. He would barely speak, and if he did, he preached a dark religion he had learned from the presence in the woods. Soon, he gathered a flock of followers, the Clifton Family included. And on that faithful night, when all perished in a horrific church fire, Aleister’s black eyes glowed against the flicker of the match.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 7.06.39 PM

Tonight, Aleister and his followers have returned to mark you as a witness to the prequel of past years. Examine the darkness he brought onto the community and what occurred before that fateful night the church fire killed the whole village. Ride along as you explore the powerful hand of cults.

This is by far the best and most scary neighborhood haunted house in Los Angeles. Big Worms’ Sherwood Scare returns for another Halloween season and with a completely new theme! Once again, they are using their combined skills as filmmakers and craftsmen to bring you the best scares their imaginations could dream up.

1393882_438964562887130_1512702458_n

This Halloween event takes place in a residential home where friends and family have created the most haunted DIY maze on the block!

1147508_10151945287949391_1681842056_o

The 3,600 square labyrinth of terror takes between 8 – 12 minutes to go through, and about the same time to recover from.

All proceeds go to Big Worms’s Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Their mission is to help ease the time for CF patients during hospital stays for frequent “tune ups” of IV antibiotics by giving them tangible gifts. CF patients are referred to the foundation through a social worker at Children’s Hospital. Donations given at Worm’s fundraisers will provide age-appropriate gifts on request such as video games, laptops, MP3 players, guitars, DVD players, and various toys. Until a cure is found, your donations can make a difference in the lives of children with Cystic Fibrosis. Donate here.

Blackout Elements

October 2, 2013 — Leave a comment

Blackout Elements takes its inspiration from the four basic elements (earth, water, air, fire) and includes indoor exterior environments, unusual tasks, and encounters with both odd and incredibly frightening, characters. The scares are still physical and psychological, but the experience feels less like an abduction and more like a journey through a ‘Narnia’ or ‘Wonderland’-like fantasy world gone terribly, terribly wrong.

954681_467817689983720_232805062_n

Over the years Blackout Elements has developed a cult following for its extreme brand of immersive horror theater. Creators Josh Randall and Kristjan Thorgeirsson are infamous for obliterating the traditional rules and limitations of haunted attractions and bending the genre to encompass darker, more extreme, scare tactics.

1146815_467810379984451_1239276309_o

The interactive set has multiple courses and tormentors, so no two experiences are the same. Climb, crawl, and feeling your way through paths obscured by fog or darkness. Forked paths require a choice be made and create the illusion of being in control of your fate. The illusion of having control over how you explore the haunt makes the experience intensely personal and absolutely exhilarating. The experience is a barrage of horror and phobia scenarios capable of triggering a wide range of emotions.
