Halloween 2019 LA Haunts & Parties

*Keep checking this guide as we'll update it with the latest news on haunts happening around SoCal.

Looks like our haunts are already starting this weekend and Universal looks like it's going big with the crazy amount of tie-ins to other franchises. Don't count out Creep LA and other smaller haunts, because those give you some more interactive scares.

Sep. 13- Nov. 3, 2019
777 Alameda St, Los Angeles, CA 90021

Creep LA is back with HAUS OF CREEP, another new concept to scare and disgust you. It looks to be heavily influenced by selfie experiences and Instagram museums... in that it hates them. This new setting has you freely walk around discovering over a dozen installations, while some new creeps interact with you. Oh, and a deranged puppet show always sounds fun. Sort of like an art museum at night with the lights off is close to what we think it might be like...except with crazy people.
