No Haunted Shack or Revenge of the Ninja for Halloween 2018.

Bad news for haunt-seekers in Torrance: both The Haunted Shack and the Revenge of the Ninja maze and block party will go dark for Halloween 2018. Fortunately, neither one is a permanent closure; both promise to return next year.

A message on the official website for Revenge of the Ninja states:

"The ninjas are at rest in 2018... but they will be back with a vengeance!"

The Haunted Shack announcement reads:

We apologize, but due to work obligations we will not be open in 2018. Please come visit us in 2019.

We look forward to seeing both haunts back in action for Halloween 2019.
