2012 REIGN OF TERROR UPDATES: This year, the Reign of Terror includes four distinct sections within its lengthy and elaborately decorated walk-through: the traditional Haunted House; Insane Asylum from 2010; Blood Manor from 2011; and new for 2012, Miner’s Revenge.
REIGN OF TERROR HISTORY: The proprietor has been haunting yards off and on since 1985. In 2002, the effort began to grow more serious, culminating in a move to the Conejo Recreation and Park Center for 2008. In 2009, this amateur-community effort moved to Janns Marketplace for its 10 anniversary, where it offered a much larger presentation. At this time, Hollywood Gothique placed the Reign of Terror in our Professional Halloween Haunted Houses category, although their proceeds still benefitted the Conejo Recreation Center.
In 2010, Reign of Terror moved to a new location in Janss Marketplace, above Gold’s Gym, allowing for an even larger haunted attraction; the Insane Asylum was introduced this year. 2011 saw the introduction of Blood Manor – a somewhat more grizzly section of the maze, with a backwoods feel quite distinct from the Victorian haunted house ambiance of the original maze. That year also saw a large population of ghosts and ghouls haunting the premises, increasing the scare factor considerably.
INFORMATION: This haunt claims to be appropriate for all ages. It features skeletons, hanging bodies, zombie figures, lightening, and fog. It won the 2006 HauntX Best Home Haunt Award.
LOCATION: Although technically located outside of Los Angeles County, this wonderful haunted house is worth the drive.
