Great Horror Campout Full Details

"Only the Dawning Sun Will Save You", is the tag line for this new event from the same people who gave you the Haunted Hayride and unlike the Hayride the monsters and baddies will be able to touch you.

Yes, the Great Horror Campout is shaping up into something most sinister. You'll be provided with a tent for up to four people and it doesn't matter if you stay in the tent or leave it, you will be spooked. For those in for more scares you can try out the Hell Hunt. Hell Hunt's different activities include the
“Pope Lick”, where you have a voodoo sacrifice to handle. Then you have the "Beasts of Bray" which has you digging through roadkill and more is planned. I would not wear your best clothes to this.

There's to be a fetch quest too and if you win it you may be crowned "Hell Master". Even if not Hell Master campers who manage to survive the Hell Hunt get a golden ticket for unlimited rides on the Haunted Hayride in October.

Check below what you need to bring, they'll give you foo, but they don't have sleeping bags.

It's $149 and seems to be the best Halloween event not taking place on Halloween in LA.

New Summer Attraction:
Will Give Campers an Overnight Experience Reminiscent of ‘80s Slasher Films.

Tickets On Sale Now!

Los Angeles, CA – March 19th, 2013 – New in 2013, the Great Horror Campout will bring a unique kind of camping experience to Los Angeles.  From Ten Thirty One Productions (creators of the popular Los Angeles Haunted Hayride), the Great Horror Campout will be an overnight, twelve-hour experience that puts campers into an immersive horror camping adventure jam packed with content.  

Campers can choose the intensity of their adventure, however, whether they decide to stay in their tents with friends or venture into the darkness is all fair game.  And unlike the LA Haunted Hayride, the performers at Great Horror Campout may touch you. 

With a slogan that promises, “Only the Dawning Sun Will Save You,” tents, horror movies, bonfires and marshmallow roasting are only the beginning.  Campers wanting an even more extreme horror experience can participate in the Hell Hunt, an interactive experience that will bring campers face to face with their worst nightmares in order to retrieve the items for which they are hunting.  The Hell Hunt will send campers bathing in the blood of a “Pope Lick,” partaking in a sacrificial voodoo ritual, digging through road kill amongst “Beasts of Bray” and tons more. Campers will have to use creative thinking and problem solving to find the most coveted items and compete for the title of “Hell Master.”  Campers who complete the Hell Hunt will receive a “Golden Ticket” to the LA Haunted Hayride good for unlimited rides during the 2013 Halloween season.

“The first rule is that we can change the rules… when we want, for any reason we want, and without notice.  Campers will need to be listening for the Camp Headmasters announcements for rule changes if they plan on escaping elimination from the Hell Hunt.” said Ten Thirty One Productions, President, Melissa Carbone.

Campers will report to the Great Horror Campout, Base Camp at 8pm where they will meet the Camp Headmaster for the first time, receive dinner, tent assignments, Hell Hunt Bags and more.

“Even the campers who want to stay in their tents with friends or hang at the bonfire for movies will get ruined…just not as ruined as those who think they’re tough enough for the Hell Hunt. We’re beyond excited.”  Carbone added.

The Great Horror Campout takes place June 7th & 8th at the Los Angeles State Historic Park, 1245 N. Spring St, LA, CA 90012.  Tickets On Sale Now at  Space is limited and based on availability.  Campers will select their tent space online during the purchase process.
