Following its sold-out nationwide tour, THE PURGE: BREAKOUT is returning to L.A. this Halloween season. The Purge: Breakout is an immersive escape-game experience based on the world of the hit film franchise The Purge. It’s Purge Night, and your group is being held captive by a demented torturer…with only 30 minutes before the start of The Purge. Trapped in his house, groups must work together—solving a series of increasingly complicated mind-bending puzzles and clues—to escape captivity and survive The Purge. Based on popular escape room adventures taking the U.S. and Asia by storm, the experience is like a real life video game. Visitors will be completely immersed into a horror experience like no other. The immersive experience sold-out its nationwide tour this summer including its time in L.A.
Deemed the ‘the most terrifying of the United State’s 3,000 haunted houses’ (The Guardian), BLACKOUT celebrates its 5th anniversary this year opening this month in NYC (Oct 9) and LA (Oct 16) — with a new show, BLACKOUT: house and a new set of rules.
Infamous for its strict solo-entry policy, forcing participants to face their darkest fears alone, BLACKOUT: house will be a group experience this year. And if you think that means the experience will be any easier — think again. This year’s iteration takes the creators’ special brand of immersive horror to the next level by breaking even more conventions than previous years and incorporating group dynamics into the experience.
Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights 2014 opened to the masses on Friday, September 19th this year, making it the first large-scale Halloween event of the season here in Southern California. With temperatures all week above 90 degrees, it was hard to believe that Halloween had arrived; clearly, Mother Nature hadn’t received the memo. Strangely enough, opening day of Halloween Horror Nights was overcast and much cooler than the rest of the week; it appears that the event’s Creative Director/Executive Producer, John Murdy, called in a favor with the powers that be! Or perhaps he made an even more sinister offering of sorts – come to think of it, we haven’t seen his design counterpart, Chris Williams, for weeks…
America’s favorite No. 1 engine is chugging into Roaring Camp alongside his pal Percy for a special event: Thomas and Percy’s Halloween Party. Junior engineers are invited to wear their Halloween costumes and bring the entire family for a fun-filled day at Thomas and Percy-themed activities.

Now in its second year, TOUR OF TERROR takes ZJU’s signature show, URBAN DEATH, and transforms it into an immersive haunted experience designed to explore the deepest and darkest terrors fathomable.
Last year’s inaugural event was heralded by fans and critics alike for the imaginative quality of the scares and the talent of the performers within the maze.
Delusion: Lies Within is quickly approaching and most dates have already sold out, so they are offering their devoted fans an additional opportunity to discover what lies within the walls of Elena Fitzgerald’s Manor.
Oct 2nd tickets are now released! Click here to purchase tickets.
The shadows stir as time is running out. Play Your Part on a dark journey like no other as Delusion takes you by the mind and drags you away from your world to theirs. Embark on an epic adventure as you play your part in uncovering the mystery of the great author Elena Fitzgerald.
ALONE remains a 30-minute individual, tour where participants become a part of their own nightmare. Unlike haunted hayrides and scary houses, ALONE ditches the typical Halloween trappings of fake blood, gore, sexy vampires and screaming psychopaths. It is only you, in the dark, with us. Each guest is left to wander through the darkness, completely ALONE.
Each year, hundreds of ghouls fill the twisted mazes of Knott’s Scary Farm’s Halloween Haunt event in Buena Park, lurking in the darkness, ready to pounce on unsuspecting victims. They leer, they hiss, they scream, and they lunge; however, many of these creatures of the dark are fresh out of Scare School – a night of training outside and inside of their mazes that will prepare them for the season of screams to come. While a large amount of maze talent does return to work Halloween Haunt each season, there’s always plenty… new blood in the mix. That’s where Scare School comes in – to help returning veterans get mentally and physically limbered up for the task at hand, and to prep and pump up new talent for the experience they’re about to embark on.
