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.

AloneExistentialHauntingpyramidALONE: AN EXISTENTIAL HAUNTING

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

2014 Dates: To Be Announced.

Hours: 5pm to midnight, depending on the day of the event

2013 Tickets: $40 for general admission, $55 for front-of-the-line privileges. Tickets are sold in one-hour blocks of time.

Website: Click here

Description: A new attraction opens in Los Angeles this Halloween. 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.

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

Blackout Haunted Housoe

BLACKOUT HAUNTED HOUSE
New Location: Variety Arts Theatre
940 South Figueroa Street
Los Angeles, CA 90017
Website:
www.blackouthh.com

2014 Dates: To Be Announced.

2013 Tickets: $65. Performance times start at 7:00pm every night and continue at half-hour intervals. You purchase tickets for a particular time slot (e.g., 8:30pm), not for the entire evening.

Description: After years in New York, The Blackout Haunted House opened a new location in Los Angeles. Its gimmick is that visitors pass through the completely dark maze alone, with only a mask and a flashlight to protect them from whatever horrors lurk within. Judging from the reviews, the experience has less to do with Halloween Horror than with torture porn, S&M, and Abu Ghraib: the actors touch you and invade your personal space; you may find yourself shackled in the dark with a bag over your head. The website warns that you will encounter: fog, strobe lights, complete darkness, crawling, stairs, loud noises, water, physical contact, sexual and violent situations. Only those 18 and over may attend; all patrons are required to sign a waver before entering.

Visitors are required to perform some 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.
