The Empty Grave Haunted Attraction 2014

The_Empty_Grave_2015-1058922014 was a great year for our friends at The Empty Grave, one of Orange County’s longest-running haunted attractions. For the past couple of years, The Empty Grave was located at the Anaheim GardenWalk, just across the street from the Disneyland Resort. One might think that such close proximity to hundreds of hotel rooms and an endless supply of tourists would make for an incredible source of business for a haunt at Halloween.

On Sunday, September 8th, The Empty Grave in Anaheim, California will be home to a very unusual mix of vampires, ghouls, monsters and… clowns. Yes; clowns! The haunted attraction, which is located within the Anaheim GardenWalk, will be open for business all night long, with a special cast of talent kicking ass and raising Hell in the name of a fallen industry brother – Mark “Sumo” Sagato. All night long, 50% of the ticket sales will go to Mark’s loved ones. “Sumo” was taken away from all of us much too soon due to cardiac arrest last month. His family and loved ones need help and support in this impossibly challenging time.
