Brutal but fun, 17th Door is a top-notch Halloween haunt.
Hollywood Gothique Says:
The 17th Door combines a traditional group walk-through maze with extreme scare elements and truly impressive tech and design. The result is one of the scariest, brutal, and and most entertaining haunted houses in the Southland.

The 17th Door Information
In operation since 2015, the 17th Door Haunted House offers a more visceral experience than most Halloween attractions. Visitors must sign a release acknowledging “Possible Triggers” (touching, foul language, electric shock, and projectiles that may leave welts or bruises). From year to year, the haunt develops its story line, taking visitors ever deeper into the depths of tortured madness. What started off in a haunted school moved to a penitentiary for 2018’s iteration, “Cry Baby,” which added a virtual reality experience (for an extra fee).
For Halloween 2020, The 17th Door opened with impressively stringent Covid-10 precautions: masks, gloves, eye protection, and an upgraded air ventilation system that “exceeds hospital requirements.” It was one of the few Halloween attractions that managed to meet safety requirements in order to open for business that season.
