The Haunted Shack: Best Little Home Haunt in Torrance
Hollywood Gothique Says:
What stands out in The Haunted Shack is the unexpected twists, turns, and surprises, leading to an effective payoff at the end – making this one of the best amateur walk-through mazes in Los Angeles.
5112 Maricopa Street, Torrance, CA 90503
The Haunted Shack is not offering a walk-through maze this year, but there will be a front yard display. Trick-or-Treaters are asked to donate at least two non-perishable food items to help feed homeless people affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Dates have yet to be announced, but a July 11 Facebook post promised:
We're still brewing SOMETHING up for Halloween this year. I promise it will NOT be the same for sure, but it will be safe. We value YOU, and want you to come back for years to come. Stay tuned!
Admission & Parking: Free, but donations accepted

The Haunted Shack Info
In operation since 1997, this amateur haunted house has grown into an effects-filled, 1500-square-foot walk-through maze that takes 6-8 minutes to walk through. The look of the maze changes from year to year, depending on the theme (everything from killer klownz to Dia De Los Muertos). The Haunted Shack went on hiatus in 2007 and 2018, due to time constraints, but so far shows no signs of retiring permanently.
