Part walk-through haunt and part avant-garde stage presentation, Urban Death: Tour of Terror Haunted Theatre begins with a mini-maze, through which visitors pass in groups of two; the only illumination comes from flashlights provided by the theatre, which cast tiny spotlights on the grim horrors lurking around every corner. The walk-through experience is followed by a half-hour stage show, featuring a series of bizarre vignettes acted out on a bare stage, after which the audience makes a return trip through the maze. The experience ranks among the most uniquely disturbing Halloween events in Los Angeles - definitely not recommended for those under fifteen years old.
