Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights

With eight horrifying mazes, there are more scream-tastic experiences than ever.  Each maze is based on either a Universal Studies TV show or movie.  You might find yourself in the nightmarish “Stranger Things” maze then make your way to supernatural world of “Poltergeist”. No matter which worlds you end up exploring, it’s sure to be an exhilarating night.

No area is safe at Knott’s Scary Farm. From scare zones to haunted mazes to the most thrilling rides, even the toughest will find themselves scared out of their pants.

Los Angeles Haunted Hayride

Griffith Park’s Haunted Hayride features a long ride through the haunted woods of the Old Zoo. You will be faced with terrifying clowns, so stay away if you suffer from coulrophobia.  After a terrifying ride, riders go on foot through the Corn Maze, which is sure to elicit lots of screams.


KCRW Masquerade Ball

KCRW’s annual dance party will take place on October 27th at the Los Angeles Theatre in DTLA.
