Los Angeles Haunted Hayride
Thirteenth Floor Productions transforms Griffith Park into Midnight Falls for the Los Angeles Hunted Hayride, a fictitious town set in 1985. Take an eerie ride through the mysterious town of Midnight Falls- a town where time stands still and Halloween never ends. Transport back to the year 1985 and experience the town’s deepest, sinister secrets and horrors by exploring mazes, visiting Haunted Houses, connecting with the townspeople finding your way out of escape rooms and setting out on a hayride adventure to discover the terrors afflicting the town.
A New Día Exhibition
If haunted houses and escape rooms aren’t your thing, we’ve got you covered with this incredible art installation! In the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, the Mexican beer brand, Estrella Jalisco, brings us a multi-room, immersive exhibit at Wisdome LA. You will be guided through four sensory dome installations inspired by the celebration of Día de Muertos. Filmmaker, Robert Rodriguez, collaborated with Estrella Jalisco to bring this first-of-its-kind experience to life with his creative vision. He also serves as a personal guide by lending his voice as the narration through your sensory journey of the four geodesic dome experience. Estrella Jalisco invites us to take a part in celebrating life and tradition. This exhibit will be open now through November 1.
Creep LA – Haus of Creep
In the deep, dark-heart of Downtown LA, Just Fix It Productions invites you to experience an Instagram playground of Terror. Haus of Creep, this Halloween’s hottest and most disturbing attraction, features a sultry lounge, deranged puppet shows, shadow plays and horrifying installations. Creep L.A. immerses guests into a world of dark satyr where the line between reality and art is blurred. Haus of Creep explores the terrors of society’s social media driven culture with “instagrammable” installations that come alive and characters that will leave you haunted. Upon entering the Haus of Creep, guests will roam a bizarre world and nightmarish playground for a 75-minute, multi-sensory exhibit that includes shocking scenes, theatrical performances, and intimate scares. Creep LA: Haus of Creep hosts four shows a night with up to 50 guests per performance.
