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.
