Los Angeles Haunted Hayride Will be a Drive-up Experience This Year

A live, immersive, interactive drive-through adventure and drive-in-movie horror experience awaits guests this Halloween season.

For the 2020 Halloween season, Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group’s Los Angeles Haunted Hayride will be an immersive, interactive, drive-up event that guests will experience from their own vehicles. The producers of “Los Angeles Haunted Hayride: Live Drive Up Experience” describe it as a combination of a drive-through and drive-in experience, with “a unique spin.” 

Guests venture down a dark stretch of All Hallows Lane through some of the Hayride’s signature creepy scenic environments. Next, they’re entertained by a horrifying show featuring an original multimedia story displayed on a 40-foot screen. The show is accompanied by terrifying sets, lighting, sound, effects, and live characters from the town of Midnight Falls.

“With all the other heritage Halloween events canceling in Southern California, it drove us to find a way to bring a safe and unique experience to Halloween fans,” says Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group CEO, Chris Stafford, whose company produces the annual event, “I’m so excited to show our fans what we’ve created for them, and that this reimagined Hayride experience will be entertaining people this season.”

Another change this year is a new, temporary location for the event—Bonelli Regional Park in San Dimas, which is next to Raging Waters. “There was just no way to bring cars into the Hayride location at Griffith Park. We had to find the right spot, one where we could implement the new drive-up experience and an outdoor environment that gives you the right fall feeling. When I saw the space we’ll be using at Bonelli, I knew that it would be perfect,” said Jon Cooke, Creative Director. “The Hayride has become a Halloween tradition for people, and although it may be a little different this year, I think people are really going to love it,” he said.

The following health-and-safety information appears on the Hayride’s website: The safety of our fans, performers, and staff is our top priority. This experience was designed to meet all local health and safety standards and state regulations. Of course, we’ll be wearing our masks; it’s Halloween, after all. All staff will wear protective face coverings, even under their theatrical masks. Guests in their vehicles are requested to follow local guidelines for mask requirements and to pay attention to any email updates, as information is subject to change.

Los Angeles Haunted Hayride: Live Drive Up Experience will take place on select nights from September 25th through November 1st.  Tickets are available now at the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride website.
