Theme Park Adventure Departs From ScareLA Halloween Convention

ScareLA Halloween conventionI regretfully confirm that Theme Park Adventure is no longer associated with ScareLA Halloween convention in any way. I am unable to answer any questions about the convention’s current operations or future plans, nor am I going to make any further statement at this time regarding the extremely difficult decision I’ve made to resign as one of the event’s producers.

I appreciate the support of the haunt community, and will always be incredibly proud of what we accomplished as a team over the past three years. Sadly, that has come to an end, and I am just as disappointed about that as our friends throughout the industry are.

Thank you all for the outpouring of love and strength during this extremely challenging transition. I promise that I have not abandoned this great community, nor am I fading away. Theme Park Adventure is stronger than ever before, and remains dedicated to the Southern California haunt community and beyond.

We are family. Always have been, always will be.

Decayed Brigade Slides Back Into ScareLA 2015

Decayed Brigade LogoSlider fans, here’s some news that will excite you: the Decayed Brigade will return to ScareLA 2015, with three shows per day August 8 – 9, at the Pasadena Convention Center!

If you’ve attended a haunted attraction just about anywhere in the world, chances are, you’ve witnessed a “slider” in action – a monster (usually on the streets/in a scare zone) that lunges out of the shadows, sliding on its hands and knees toward screaming guests huddled together in the darkness and fog.

The technique of sliding dates back decades, and can be traced to Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park, California. There, during its annual Halloween event, Knott’s Scary Farm, the art of sliding at people to terrify them was born in Ghost Town. It has quite literally spread around the globe and is a widely-used scare tactic used in haunted houses and attractions of all sizes.

Decayed Brigade is a diverse team of male and female sliders from across Southern California’s broad spectrum of haunts and attractions. The 2015 Decayed Brigade is sponsored by Scott Ramp’s The Scream Team.
