On Sunday night October 13th, TPAers will gather for their monthly social mixer at Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar at the Disneyland Resort, followed by an exclusive lights-on tour of one of Southern California’s most spectacular haunted attractions, Sinister Pointe!
Theme Park Adventure hosts a monthly gathering at Trader Sam’s at the Disneyland Hotel that is attended by a wide variety of theme park fans, haunted attraction crews and themed entertainment professionals; it’s always a who’s who at any TPA gathering, and lots of new faces turn up each month as well, which we love!
The first 30 to arrive promptly at 7:00 P.M. on the patio outside of Tangaroa Terrace and Trader Sam’s will receive a special, limited edition Autumn Nights at Sam’s TPA Tiki button, beautifully created by our pal (and world-renowned badass Tiki artist) Tom “Thor” Thordarson (those that got theirs last month, wear those bad boys with pride and show the TPA love)!
Food is available at Tangaroa Terrace, and awesome Tiki drinks are found within Trader Sam’s as we celebrate Autumn Nights at Sam’s II together! Parking at Downtown Disney is FREE for the first 3 hours, and if you are able to park in Pinocchio Lot (across the street from the DTD lot entrance, next to the Mickey & Friends Parking Structure), it is FREE all night. Note that Trader Sam’s does NOT validate parking.
Theme Park Adventure will give away a few raffle prizes at 8:30 P.M. sharp Sunday night.
Most TPA mixers are scheduled from 7-10 P.M. However, this month, things are a bit different. At 9:00 P.M., we are departing from Trader Sam’s and regrouping in Brea (just about 15 minutes from Disneyland) at Sinister Pointe, one of the most amazing haunted attractions in Southern California! TPAers will be given wristbands at the mixer prior to departure, and once they arrive at Sinister Pointe, will use those bands to get a special discounted ticket to the haunt for only $13.00 per person!
BUT WAIT… THERE’S MORE!
Once Sinister Pointe concludes its normal operation at 10:00 P.M., TPAers will enjoy an EXCLUSIVE lights-on tour, hosted by the attraction’s creator/owner, Jeff Schiefelbein along with members of his team. During this exclusive TPAer tour, fans may take photos; no video, please. In agreement with Sinister Pointe management, images taken during the lights-on tour must remain private and not posted to social media or websites until AFTER October 31st. Our tour will conclude with a full Q&A session with Jeff and his team.
While Theme Park Adventure welcomes fans of all ages to most of its mixers, we do NOT recommend bringing small children to Sinister Pointe. The monsters will be in overdrive mode for us, and this is NOT a child-friendly event. Please leave the little ones at home for this evening, as Sinister Pointe is a terrifying adult scare attraction.
TO RECEIVE DISCOUNTED TICKETS TO SINISTER POINTE FOR THIS EVENT AND TO GAIN ACCESS TO OUR EXCLUSIVE LIGHTS-ON TOUR OF THE ATTRACTION, YOU MUST ATTEND THE TPA GATHERING AT TRADER SAM’S; NO EXCEPTIONS.
If you’ve never attended a TPA gathering at Sam’s this is your lucky month! Even if you have to show up alone, you will have instant friends that share the same passion you do about theme parks, haunted attractions, etc! This is an amazing bunch; here is a link to last month’s wildness.
We look forward to seeing you all this Sunday night for Autumn Nights at Sam’s II as we celebrate our favorite holiday together! Happy Halloween!
