Overview: Hollywood Land is where the Golden Age of Hollywood and the magic of Disney movies are celebrated with attractions, shows and entertainment that conjure the romance, glamour and sentimentality of the silver screen. As guests stroll along Hollywood Boulevard, they visit a backlot at Hollywood Studios. With a dark turn down Sunset Boulevard, they encounter the ominous Hollywood Tower Hotel, haunted since Halloween night of 1939. Along the way, guests may see live shows with Disney characters and learn how animation works.
The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor will rise from the haunted bows of a rich, torrid history to scare all those who dare this Halloween season beginning October 2 through November 2. Dark Harbor is pleased to unveil two brand new mazes, Soulmate and B340, and an Exclusive Encounter unlike any other haunted experience onboard the infamous cruise liner.
Graceful Gale was the belle of The Queen Mary in the 1930s. As a beautiful first class passenger Gale charmed her way across the ship’s dance floor regularly until mysteriously disappearing on her final passage in 1939. The new Soulmate maze will take over the former location of the Containment maze and bring to life the haunted spirit of the frightful Graceful Gale. The story of Gale will unravel as her true spirit is revealed and those who dare will realize that Gale may not be as graceful as she appeared, but in fact is more monstrous than ever imagined. Gale will haunt The Queen Mary in order to lure suitors into her possession. Once she captures their hearts she will have her adoring minions cut them up and reassemble them to create her “perfect mate.” But Gale isn’t so easy to please and only a few creatures are suitable enough to be her dance partner. The rest of the rejects are doomed and outcast to haunt the Queen at night.
A cheetah cub, Ruuxa, and his female puppy companion, Raina, wrestled, ran and played as they participated in training sessions earlier today at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. As part of their training, the young animal ambassadors, both now over three months old, ventured out of their current home at the Safari Park’s animal care center to experience new surroundings and to begin acclimating to their future home behind the scenes at the Park’s Benbough Amphitheater.
” As an ambassador animal, Ruuxa will be experiencing lots of unpredictable environments, so it is vitally important for him to feel confident in his surroundings,” stated Larissa Comb, senior animal trainer, San Diego Zoo Safari Park. “We are taking Ruuxa and Raina outside their comfort zone of the animal care center, doing short training sessions with them several times a day, allowing them to have experiences in a controlled environment. Both animals are doing great, progressing very fast, and Ruuxa’s confidence is incredible for his age.”
2013 was a great year for haunted attractions here in Southern California. One of the new haunts to hit the scene was Evil Twin Studios’ Theatre of Terror, which was held at the Fremont Centre Theatre in South Pasadena.
Todd Schroeder, who is the founder of Evil Twin Studios ran a hugely successful home haunt in South Pasadena for years, attracting thousands of guests each season. As is the case with many large-scale home haunts, Todd came to a crossroads when it was apparent that he’d grown too much for his private event to sustain year after year. He decided to make the jump to pro, and created Evil Twin Studios with his friend and neighbor, Scott Peterson. Their 2013 venture, Theatre of Terror, was the team’s first pro haunt – and it was the… final destination of our 30-haunt tour last Halloween!
