ScareLA 2015: Onsite Haunts

ScareLA is expanding the number of onsite haunts for its 2015 incarnation.  The Los Angeles Halloween convention – which takes place on August 8 and 9 at the Pasadena Convention Center – will feature eight mini-mazes, provided by Field of Screams, The Darkside, The Curse of the Devil Swamp, Figment Foundry, Spooky Hollows, Drunken Devil Productions, Fear Station, and Virtual Screams.

These short walk-throughs provide an excellent opportunity for Los Angeles Halloween fans to sample haunted attractions that might otherwise be outside their normal range (some hail from Orange County and Riverside). If you enjoy the preview, you may decide the full version is worth the extra miles. (We discovered several worthies at the previous ScareLA, including Curse of the Devil Swamp.)

Here is the complete rundown:
