The Los Angeles Haunted Hayride has become a bona fide institution, rightfully billing itself as one of the most popular Halloween attractions in the country. 2018 marks the event’s 10th Anniversary and to celebrate, promoters are pulling out all the stops, promising a “hayride on steroids”! Not only will they be terrifying attendees with new attractions, they’re bringing back their most nerve-shredding classics from seasons past.
Yesterday’s press release reads, in part:
Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group is proud to announce the highly anticipated return of the most popular Halloween attraction in the country, the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride. Hailing from the authentically haunted Old Zoo area of Griffith Park, the hayride will be back in full force starting Saturday, September 29th. Tickets are currently on sale with limited pre-sale tickets available until September 1st. You can purchase your tickets here.
Los Angeles Haunted Hayride returns with the most immersive ride yet as guests are completely transported back to hayrides past. The event is sure to be another Instagrammable feast with the return of the legendary Haunted Hayride, the heart-pounding House of Shadows Dark Maze, the disturbed neighborhood of Trick Or Treat and everyone’s favorite haunted village, Purgatory.
For fans that have been to every hayride, it will be an unforgettable ride through the nightmares the hayride has been inducing for years. You will also be treated to new surprises and some larger than life additions that one would expect for a celebration as grand as a 10 Year Anniversary. For first-timers, the experience will be a hayride on steroids as every memorable demon and apparition returns to say hello once again.
“I can’t believe it’s been ten years!” said Los Angeles Haunted Hayride founder/creator Melissa Carbone. “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. Bringing back the content that the fans have told us they love and want more of is my way of doing that. I’m so excited to see the incredible characters of the past. Oh, how I’ve missed them,” Carbone smugly laughs.
