SINISTER POINTE GENERAL INFORMATION: Sinister Pointe bills itself as “Southern California’s Only Year-Round, Permanent Haunted Attraction and Horror Production Studio.” However, “year-round” does not mean “open every day of the year”; rather, the haunt is open for various special occasions throughout the year (e.g. “Not So Merry Holiday Haunted Attraction” and “Horror Movie Night”).
SINISTER POINTE HISTORY: This highly regarded Halloween attraction has been haunting Orange County in various guises since 1996, originally under the name “Nightmares,” then “Realm of Darkness.” Past events include The Haunting in 2006 and Condemned in 2007. 2008 brought an officially licensed Saw maze, followed by Fear and Silent Hill (based on the videogame and film) in 2009; there was also a haunt zone titled “Slaughter Yard.” In 2010, the team behind Sinister Pointe took a year off from their own haunts to work on the Queen Mary Dark Harbor in Long Beach and on Diner of the Dead in Garden Grove. 2011 saw Sinister Pointe move into a new, permanent location, where it offered some innovative and unique scares, set in a backwoods country house akin to abysmal abodes seen in films such as THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE.
