Winter Nights 2 Brings Huge Crowd!

Winter_Nights_2_2014 186On 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!

REVIEW: Sinister Pointe Not So Merry Holiday Haunt 2013

[WARNING - ADULT CONTENT - NOT APPROPRIATE FOR CHILDREN]

SINISTER_HOLIDAY_2013_7599As songs of good will and tidings of peace fill the air, the smell of warm cookies wafts from kitchen windows, and children dream of red-nosed reindeer and Santa Claus bearing gifts, Sinister Pointe in Brea, California, offers up something a little different than that with its annual Not So Merry Holiday Haunt. Geared for adults – and only adults – this event is a shockingly naughty Christmas romp with a strange and spooky assortment of evil elves, backwoods decorating, and a really jolly man in a red suit! It’s completely over the top, not for the prude or easily offended, and definitely something that no other haunt in California delivers during the holiday season!

Winter Nights at Sam’s a Balmy Success

WINTER_NIGHTS_2013_7848With afternoon temperatures hitting above 80 degrees, a warm breeze in the evening and folks walking around in T shirts and shorts, you’d never guess it was time to begin our first Winter Nights at Sam’s mixer of the season! Yet, with Christmas just days away, that’s exactly how Mother Nature was playing her winter card here in sunny Southern California while other parts of the nation are getting snowed in and frozen solid! In 2012, Theme Park Adventure held its first Winter Nights at Sam’s meet and we were lucky if 20 people showed up to socialize and chill with us; as our group of regulars grows each month, we felt certain that 2013 would be different…

REVIEW: Sinister Pointe 2013

One of the greatest haunted attractions in Southern California is Sinister Pointe, located in Brea, just minutes away from Orange County attractions such as Disneyland Resort, Angel Stadium, and the Honda Center. Unlike most SoCal haunted attractions, Sinister Pointe is unique in that it is open periodically throughout the year, giving haunt enthusiasts their much-needed scare fixes every few months. However, each October, power tools, rock music and ghoulish laughter can be heard coming from the industrial warehouse that contains this incredible maze, as the crew preps the haunt for Halloween, reveling with delight at the horrors they’re creating for guests to experience throughout October…

Autumn Nights at Sam’s 2: Haunting we will Go!

IMG_3831

On the evening of Sunday October 13, 2013, Theme Park Adventure hosted its Autumn Nights at Sam’s II mixer at Trader Sam’s in Anaheim, California. It was the first time that TPA has hosted one of our fan gatherings during October, and weren’t too sure of what kind of turn-out we would have, considering a very large portion of our regular attendees are haunters. We’re thrilled to say that the event was a success – with a spooky great twist at the end, as most of those who came to Trader Sam’s joined us at Sinister Pointe for a special lights-on tour of the attraction in Brea!
