Into the Black is Back – Update: Postponed!

September 25 Update

Into the Black – which only recently announced its dates for this Halloween – has been postponed. The email announcement states specifically that this is not a cancellation. However, refunds are being granted for previously purchased tickets.

Read the official announcement below…

Due to recently announced City restrictions, Into the Black has been temporarily postponed. We are currently working with the City to continue to move forward with opening at a later date. This is not a cancellation and we do plan on reopening as soon as possible.

In the meantime, all previously purchased tickets will be refunded in full. Refunds will begin processing today and may take a few business days to process back to the card that was used to make the purchase. Once we are able to reopen we will provide the new set of dates where tickets can be purchased.

We would like to thank our entire cast and crew for working diligently to open Into the Black. Thank you to our fans, supporters, vendors, media outlets, and the Haven City Market. This is not the end and we will reopen once City restrictions and concerns have lifted. 

As always we are here to provide a safe, fun, and scary (in the best way) experience and at this point in time we feel that postponing to keep our cast, crew, and guests safe is the best decision we could make.

We will see you all soon,
The Into the Black Team

Original Post – September 17, 2020

Into the Black – which provided two greats seasons of haunting before going on hiatus last year – returns for Halloween 2020 in a new location, Haven City Market in Rancho Cucamonga. The new event, fully titled “Into The Black presents The Haunted Market,” will include a short film, followed by a maze leading to the Haunted Market, filled with vendors selling macabre merchandise. Depicting a decaying Victorian mansion haunted by demons, Into the Black‘s maze is one of the most intensely frightening haunted house attractions we have ever experienced, making his a definite must-see this Halloween, even more so since competition is so thin this year, thanks to restrictions imposed in response to Covid-19.

The wisdom of putting guests through a haunted maze during a pandemic may seem questionable, but Into the Black‘s method has always involved spacing out victims in order to increase the chills – which has the added benefit of providing safe distance from respiratory particles exhaled while screaming. (As the haunt’s facebook page notes. “We were into Social Distancing before it was cool.”) This year, only one or two will be allowed through the maze at a time. Masks will be required, and guests will undergo checks by staff before entering.

Into the Black will run Thursdays Through Sundays throughout October, plus Wednesday, October 28. Hours are 5-11:40pm daily.
