We're in the second half of October, and the groundswell of Halloween events in Los Angeles is overwhelming. In the past few days, we've been to the Sinister Pointe Haunted Attraction in Fullerton, The Flesh Yard in Anaheim, and the Haunted Maze on Ambrose; tonight we head downtown to see something new, Gorlesque - apparently a burlesque take on a traditional haunted house walk-through. And as previously mentioned, we want to divulge details on this year's Delusion: His Crimson Queen. As soon as we find a minute to sit down, we'll write these up in detail, but if you can't wait, here's a brief rundown:
- Delusion: His Crimson Queen: more story oriented that previous version of Delusion, but still loaded with stunts and effects. Participation is a must if you want the full entertainment benefit - volunteer to take part in the action! More info
- Sinister Pointe: innovative variation on a Halloween maze with multiple pathways, taking visitors on different journeys depending on the "realm" to which they are assigned. Lots of fun and a little bit challenging - you will need to find your way from time to time. There's a very dark, tight maze that leaves you no room to avoid the scare you see coming. More info
- The Flesh Yard: essentially a bigger better version of the haunt that made its debut in Halloween 2015, from the folks who did the Perdition Home haunt. More info
- Haunted Maze on Ambrose: amateur haunt that makes good use of very tricky terrain, with tight and twisted corridors that keep you so focused on finding your way (and not falling over yourself) that you fail to see the monsters sneaking up on you. More info
