In 1913, the old Haxenghast Mansion was burned to the ground amidst mysterious circumstances; now, 100 years later, the house has appeared once again, its parapets and turrets twisting up through the autumn mists in a defiant statement against science, nature and time itself. Known locally as ‘the dead manor’, Manormortis has awoken from its slumber, and it is hungry…
One of the greatest haunted attractions in Southern California is Sinister Pointe, located in Brea, just minutes away from Orange County attractions such as Disneyland Resort, Angel Stadium, and the Honda Center. Unlike most SoCal haunted attractions, Sinister Pointe is unique in that it is open periodically throughout the year, giving haunt enthusiasts their much-needed scare fixes every few months. However, each October, power tools, rock music and ghoulish laughter can be heard coming from the industrial warehouse that contains this incredible maze, as the crew preps the haunt for Halloween, reveling with delight at the horrors they’re creating for guests to experience throughout October…
One of the most popular mazes at Knott’s Scary Farm is Delirium, which made its debut in 2011. The twisted maze, which is the dreamchild of veteran Halloween Haunt designer Daniel Miller, returned once again this past season to terrify and freak out guests visiting the 41st annual event in Buena Park, California. Absolutely one of the strongest additions to Haunt in recent memory, the big question was, would it remain shocking and elaborate enough to contend with the likes of this year’s new Scary Farm offerings, including Forevermore and Miller’s new maze for 2013, Black Magic?
Vampires have long been a standing theme at Knott’s Scary Farm’s Halloween Haunt. From the “vintage days” of the vampire mazes in the early 1990s to 2013′s Dominion of the Damned offering, the creatures of the night have continued to play a vital role in the overall production of what’s revered as the granddaddy of all Halloween theme park events. Some years have been greater than others, for sure. One thing is undeniable however: guests and fans love the subject and vampires have become a Gothic, hissing cornerstone of the Scary Farm.
Theme Park Adventure has had the privilege of watching the LA Haunted Hayride grow over the past five years from a startup haunt way out in the boonies of the Santa Monica Mountains at the King Gillette Ranch, to one of Los Angeles’ top haunted attractions that is on our Must-See list each Halloween. The LA Haunted Hayride has evolved into a unique night out – not merely a hayride, but an entire event complete with carnival, multiple attractions, entertainment and hordes of monsters roaming and interacting with guests at every turn!
EDITOR’S NOTE: As would be expected with anything having to do with Rob Zombie or his film IPs, Great American Nightmare was a haunt loaded with X-rated imagery and at the very least, content that is definitely not appropriate for everyone. Theme Park Adventure attended the opening night of this attraction in Southern California, and while we attempted to shoot video, it became apparent very quickly that none of it could be used due to extreme language and overt adult content. The following review is not suitable for the workplace or anywhere children may have access to the screen. We have edited out many images that we took during the event. That said, it would be impossible to review the Great American Nightmare without a fair visual documentation to go along with our thoughts. Read/view at your own discretion…
In 1973 at Knott’s Scary Farm, a new breed of talent was born – street monsters. Not confined to the rooms and corridors of mazes, or waiting in the peek-ins that line Ghost Town, this new type of scare tactic was unleashed on unsuspecting guests in the 1970s, and became a cornerstone of not just Knott’s Scary Farm, but haunted attractions and events everywhere.
In 2012, Knott’s Scary Farm designer Brooke Walters stunned fans and Theme Park Adventure with her then-newest maze creation, Trick Or Treat. It was our favorite addition to the event as it celebrated its 40th Haunt, with a classic old school Halloween theme combined with the current Green Witch character push that Knott’s has placed front and center now for the past two seasons. Knowing that Trick Or Treat hadn’t changed much between 2012 and 2013, we were eager to experience it again for a second year in a row at the Scary Farm!
There’s no question; Delusion: Masque of Mortality was one of Southern California’s most highly anticipated attractions of 2013. When it was showcased this summer at ScareLA, fans went nuts as owner Jon Braver described what the elaborate theatrical experience would become for its third year. Ironically, the production’s setting – an old church – would prove to be the most challenging and ultimately, unforgiving venue that Braver has dealt with since Delusion began in Los Angeles several years ago…
