Ten Thirty One Productions Expands Haunted Hayride, Reveals 2015 Themes

New York Haunted Hayride Poster 2015Ten Thirty One Productions (TTO), the worldwide leader in producing live horror attractions, will expand the most popular Halloween attraction in the country, Los Angeles Haunted Hayride, to New York City this October for the first time ever. The wildly popular attraction, annually held in Los Angeles, led Mark Cuban to make the largest investment in Shark Tank history as well as a second investment by Live Nation.  TTO will now be bringing its biggest and best scares from seven years of haunting the west coast to the east coast for the most horrifying experience in town.

“This expansion to New York City is one of the most important moments in the history of Ten Thirty One Productions, and one we’ve been planning for 4 years,” says CEO of TTO Melissa Carbone. “As a native east coaster (where the concept originated), I have a very vested interest in changing Halloween forever in New York City by bringing a completely new immersive magical world to New York.”

Located at Randall’s Island Park, which historically has been home to real-life asylums and psychiatric hospitals, New York Haunted Hayride will embark on its traditional tractor-drawn, hay-filled wagons through a high-octane fantasy world that exploits the most disturbing fears living in us all.  Patrons can expect to encounter terror from all sides and angles through enchanted Halloween portals of ghostly apparitions, demonic possessions, orphanages of burnt children, creatures of leviathan proportion, psychopathic clowns and much more. Don’t miss the most highly-anticipated Halloween attraction of the year and what’s been called “Terrifying & Awesome.”

LA Haunted Hayride 2014 – Echoes From The Rift

riftLocated 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!”

Surviving Great Horror Campout 2014

Horror_Campout2014_4214A 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!
