haunted houseBelow is a listing of professional haunted houses, walk-through mazes, and similar Halloween events and attractions in Los Angeles and the surrounding areas. These are seasonal haunts put on by people who specialize in scaring eager trick-or-treaters. Some are set in permanent locations; others set up temporary structures in parking lots or wherever space is available. All of them charge for admission, although some donate their proceeds. We make a distinction between them and what we term Community Halloween Haunts, which also charge admission but for the purpose of raising money to support the local community centers, schools or churches.

Check out our listings for Theme Park Halloween Attractions, Amatuer Halloween Yard Haunts, Community Halloween Haunts, Halloween Haunts for Children, Halloween Tours & Performances, and Halloween Parties & Costume Contests.

Alone An Existential Haunt logoALONE: AN EXISTENTIAL HAUNTING

Downtown Los Angeles (exact address emailed to ticket-holders)

2014 Dates:

  • October 17 Opening Ceremony
  • October 18, 23-26, 29-31 & November 1

Hours:

  • 5pm to midnight, depending on the day of the event

Tickets:

  • $45 for general admission, $60 for front-of-the-line privileges. Tickets are sold in one-hour blocks of time.

Website: thealoneexperience.com

Description:

Alone: An Existential Haunt offers a 30-minute walk-through experience, which each visitor must accomplish on his own, with only a flashlight. The experience – which is described as one part interactive theatre and one part psychological haunting – sounds similar to the Blackout Haunted House: you to fill out a waiver and then follow the instructions given to you inside the haunt; refusal to comply will result in your removal, without a refund.

This is a 21-and-over event. Survivors will receive a complimentary Dos Equis beer while the recooperate in the Shadow Lounge, listening to music by Dublab.

For Halloween 2014, Alone offers a “Grand Opening Ceremony” on October 17, with performances by Lydia Lunch, Donita Sparks, Squeaky Blonde, Devin Sarno, and Amy Kaps. Tickets for the ceremony are $20.

18 and over only (bring photo i.d.). Wear comfortable shoes, and clothes you are not afraid to get dirty.

Blackout Haunted Housoe

BLACKOUT

Website: www.blackouthh.com

2014 Dates:

  • Begins on October 16, complete schedule to be announced

Tickets:

  • To Be Announced.

Description:

For Halloween 2014, Blackout promises to change the rules. Visitors will no longer walk through alone – though who or what will accompany them is a mystery.

Only those 18 and over may attend; all patrons are required to sign a waver before entering.

Visitors are required to perform unpleasant actions. If the experience grows too intense, you can yell “Safety” and you will be escorted out. If you refuse to do as you are told, you will be removed from the event. There are no refunds.

History:

After years in New York, Blackout opened a new “haunted house” location in Los Angeles for Halloween 2012. Its gimmick was that visitors would pass through the completely dark maze alone, with only a mask and a flashlight to protect them from horrors lurkiing within. The website warned that visitors would encounter: fog, strobe lights, complete darkness, crawling, stairs, loud noises, water, physical contact, sexual and violent situations. Judging from the reviews, the experience had less to do with Halloween Horror than with torture porn, S&M, and Abu Ghraib: the actors touched guests, invading their personal space; some were shackled in the dark with a bag over their heads.

Conceived as an extreme theatrical experience, Blackout has little to do with haunting or Halloween, so it makes sense that, since 2012, Blackout’s official website has dropped the “Haunted House” label from its moniker (however, the Facebook page is still “Blackout Haunted House).
