Los Angeles Haunted Hayride Description

Los Angeles Haunted Hayride - Holiday Event in Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles Haunted Hayride is one of the most talked-about Halloween attractions in South California. Running for 17 nights from October 5th to October 31st, the hayride provides visitors with an unforgettable experience at Griffith Park’s Old Zoo.

Started in 2008, the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride begins with a terrifying ride through a dark forest with crowds of corpses, homicidal clowns, monsters, and zombies – visitors can expect a “360 degree experience.”

The event also features a small Halloween carnival with stage acts and activities, in addition to a huge maze, called the “In Between.” Visitors are given only a barely working lantern before entering the pitch-black maze.

Hours for the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride are: 7pm to 10:30pm on Thursdays and Sundays; 7pm to midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.

GA tickets for the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride are around $28 for just the hayride and around $37 for both the hayride and maze. VIP admission, which includes both attractions and front of the line access, costs around $52. There are also discounts for groups of 20 or more people.

Worth every penny! The hayride itself has been extended this year to an extra five minutes. The set designs are fantastic. Make sure you wear a poncho because you get soaked this year! I screamed more than 10 times during the ride. They have a sideshow and psychics on location, a house of mirrors, and a walk through maze in complete darkness that was so scary we had to leave 2/3 of the way through it!

I went to the Haunted Hayride last year for the first time and really enjoyed myself. I wasn't really sure what to expect beforehand, but was pleasantly surprised by the different scenarios that they put together. Even waiting in line wasn't that bad because of all the entertainment surrounding you. I would definitely say that it's a good idea to wear long pants as the hay in the tractors can get a little itchy. It’s also a good idea to eat beforehand and bring a drink with you. They have people come by with snacks, but there aren’t a lot of options. We saved the house for last, and that was definitely the best way to end the evening there. Overall, lots of fun for people who enjoy the Halloween time of year. :)

The Haunted Hayride has become a Halloween tradition amongst my group of friends. You sit on a bunch of hay inside of this open cage with wheels and get pulled a by a tractor through different scary scenarios including killer clowns, weird bloody ballet dancers, and someone being sacrificed. There's some other good surprises that I won't spoil here. Oh, and they also have a haunted maze next to the hayride. It's a super quick walk-thru but has some interesting aspects to it...very dark and at one point you have to squeeze through dead bodies to get out. It used to held in the middle of the nowhere on this strange farm in Calabasas. Now it's in Griffith Park and it's gotten REALLY crowded. It took us almost an hour and a half to get through the entire line last year. Your best bet to go on a Sunday when most people have to work the next day. I'd try and eat before...all they have is snack/food truck food. Popcorn balls, candy corn, and fried stuff. Overall, a fun LA Halloween event.
