Description: The Los Angeles Haunted Hayride returns for its sixth season of Halloween Haunting! This year's theme is the apocalyptic "Echoes from the Rift," which explores what happens when the gates of Hell yawn open to disgorge a horde of demons upon the Earth. Besides the Hayride itself, the event will include two new attractions: House of the Horsemen and Seven Sins Sideshow. Other entertainment includes the interactive Theatre Macabre and the In-Between Dark Maze. The carnivalesque Purgatory area will again include a Scary-Go-Round, a House of Mirrors, Psychics, Freak Shows, a pumpkin-carving shack, and Death Row (which allows a look at deadly devices from history).
Tickets are $30 for General Admission; $42 for All Attraction Pass; and $58 for the no-waiting VIP pass. The latter two allow access to the new mazes, House of the Horsemen and Seven Sins Sideshow.
The Los Angeles Haunted Hayride is one of the best ways to enjoy Halloween in Los Angeles. Its only real challenge is coming up with something new each October, and this year's theme and new mazes sound very intriguing.
