The Haunted Hayride: Back Nightly through Halloween!

Get into the Halloween Spirit at the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride. The hayride and its accompanying attractions have creeped out Angelenos for 15 years and will continue nightly in Griffith Park through Halloween night.

Located in Griffith Park, the hayride is eerie fun — and there are brand-new hay wagons this year — but there’s more to this evening than the ride. The mazes really get the adrenaline rushing. One of the mazes, Hellbilly Halloween, just debuted this Halloween season. You’ll venture into a creepy home in the backwoods where a notorious family of cannibals plays diabolical tricks on those who dare to visit.

In another maze, Midnight Mortuary: Scorched Remains, it’s open house at the Midnight Mortuary, and the seemingly peaceful building is full of haunted spirits. Don’t stray from your group… the ghouls will make their presence known. 

You can also learn to protect yourself from the undead at the Axe Throwing booth. For just $5, you’ll get training from an expert, then five attempts to slam the bullseye with the axe. 

Don’t miss the Monte Revolta Show, starring the undead Monte and his Band of the Living Dead, covering songs like “Psycho Killer.”

Other attractions include Trick or Treat, in which a traditional celebration is turned upside-down by ghouls, and Zombie Splat: A Gellyball Experience. You’ll be provided with protective eyewear in this zombie apocalypse simulation. 

You’ll find food for sale at the Dead End Diner. I didn’t mean to eat the funnel cake, but somehow it made its way to me, and it was ridiculously delicious. 

The Midnight Falls General Store features an Elvira section and lots of great spooky merch. 

The Los Angeles Haunted Hayride is produced by Thirteenth Floor Entertainment, also known for Magic o’ the Jack O’Lanterns in Whittier Narrows Park and Shaqtoberfest at the Queen Mary. It’s located at 4730 Crystal Springs Road, Los Angeles, CA 90027
