Located in Griffith Park’s Old Zoo area, the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride will become a portal to the planet’s deepest and most legendary rift, The Underworld. Larger than life portrayals of the seven deadly sins and their consequences will become “echoes from the rift” and come out to play in one of the most paranormally active sites in all of California. Celebrating its sixth season, Los Angeles Haunted Hayride boasts NEW experiences including two Apocalyptic-themed mazes (“House of the Horsemen” and “Seven Sins Sideshow”), a 40-foot long Leviathan, an interactive theatre production (“Theatre Macabre”), the world-renowned Street Drum Corps (“Blood Drums”), and the FIRST sway polers to the United States.
“Each year is a challenge to develop something completely unique that we know our attendees haven’t seen before…a challenge to out-do ourselves,” explains Melissa Carbone, CEO of Ten Thirty One Productions. “This year, we’re going to dizzy our attendees with mind blowing content that has never existed in this space by tapping techniques and skill sets that we had to import from other countries because they do not exist in the U.S. Even my jaw is to the ground!”
Ten Thirty One Productions, an entertainment company that creates, owns and produces live attractions in the Horror genre, has officially announced the promotion of Creative Director, Melissa Meyer, as the Chief Operations Officer of the company. After six year tenure with Ten Thirty One Productions, Melissa will work closely with CEO/President, Melissa Carbone, as the company continues to grow as the premiere leader in the horror attractions industry.
A pitch-black campsite, creepy counselors, scary movies playing as people chew on s’mores, and a dark wilderness teeming with terrifying monsters of every kind, peering from the bushes and trees, waiting to strike. Let’s not leave out killer clowns on motorcycles, a menacing white van with its lights off prowling the site with its door slightly ajar, a wild Voodoo ritual, a demonic birth ceremony, or a massive spider’s web that people must climb in total darkness before milking the teats of a Pope Lick Mama… yeah, you read that correctly. This could only be one event – and it’s a biggie – the Great Horror Campout, a large-scale scare event that immerses guests in an all-night “living horror movie” that plays out from dark until dawn in a secluded campsite where chaos and dark humor reign supreme!

On Sunday, January 19th, Theme Park Adventure held it’s first monthly mixer of 2014 – Winter Nights at Sam’s 2. To our great surprise, not only did we have a very good turnout for the event – we had a huge turnout, rivaling the biggest mixer we’ve had to date, which happened in November 2013! We didn’t bother with a final count, but by 10 p.m., well over 100 TPAers were mingling, eating and drinking on the patio outside of Tangaroa Terrace and Trader Sam’s at the Disneyland Hotel!
On Sunday September 22nd, Theme Park Adventure hosted its first Autumn Nights at Sam’s event at the Disneyland Hotel – and it was without a doubt, one of the most wild and epic fan gatherings we have ever held! Over 80 TPAers gathered and mingled under glowing Tiki torches as we kicked off the 2013 Halloween season!
The fifth year anniversary of what has become a Hollywood Halloween Icon will mark a brand new program that will take Hayriders through scenes of actual hauntings. Located in Griffith Park’s Old Zoo area, the grounds of Griffith Park and beyond have been home to murder, torture, paranormal activity, serial killers, and abduction. The area surrounding the “Old Zoo” and “B Rock” has been called one of the most paranormally active sites in all of California. Now these and other actual events will come back to life in this fifth year of Los Angeles Haunted Hayride.
If the folks at Ten Thirty One Productions can be given credit where it’s due, it must be said that they have dominated the Southern California pro haunt market in recent years when it comes to new and innovative attractions that go beyond the bounds of traditional haunted attractions. The Great Horror Campout is the latest notch in their belt, which made its debut this month on June 7th and 8th near downtown Los Angeles.
Record needle scratch. Near downtown Los Angeles; say what? As strange as it certainly seemed at first (a horror campout with tents and wooded scare zones typically conjures images of the wilderness and secluded sites far from any metropolis), let me just say that despite the inevitable glimpses of the outside world encompassing the sprawling park where this event took place, reality faded with the sunset and once the event got underway, suspension of disbelief took over and the Great Horror Campout succeeded in becoming an immersive, fun, scary environment for its guests.
When we started the Summer Nights at Trader Sam’s gatherings at the Disneyland Hotel, we wanted it to be a social event where everyone could discuss haunts/theme parks, network, and grab a few drinks. We didn’t think it would get so big, but on September 16th, we had nearly 60 people join us that evening and completely filled the back patio!
