"ECHOES FROM THE RIFT" IS THE THEME FOR LOS ANGELES HAUNTED HAYRIDE'S 6TH SEASON
Los Angeles Haunted Hayride has dropped the theme for its 6th season: "Echoes from the Rift", which promises to bring "...guests face to face with hellish abominations of apocalyptic proportion."
From the press release:
Located in Griffith Park’s Old Zoo area, the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride will become a portal to the planet’s deepest and most legendary rift, The Underworld. Larger than life portrayals of the seven deadly sins and their consequences will “echo from the rift” and come out to play in one of the most paranormally active sites in all of California. Celebrating its sixth season, Los Angeles Haunted Hayride boasts NEW experiences including two Apocalyptic-themed mazes (“House of the Horsemen” and “Seven Sins Sideshow”), a 40-foot long Leviathan, an interactive theatre production (“Theatre Macabre”), the world-renowned Street Drum Corps (“Blood Drums”), and the FIRST sway polers to the United States.
“Each year is a challenge to develop something completely unique that we know our attendees haven’t seen before…a challenge to out-do ourselves,” explains Melissa Carbone, CEO of Ten Thirty One Productions.
“This year, we’re going to dizzy our attendees with mind blowing content that has never existed in this space by tapping techniques and skill sets that we had to import from other countries because they do not exist in the U.S. Even my jaw is to the ground!”
In this year’s Purgatory, a haunted village that entertains guests while they wait in line, new experiences include:
- “House of the Horsemen” is approximately a 15-minute experience sending guests face to face with the four Horsemen of The Apocalypse, embodying Pestilence, War, Famine, and Death.
- “Seven Sins Sideshow” is a maze where the most depraved and deadly lurk from flesh and furniture melting into one, a human pig-machine vomiting riches from its muzzle, to even a race of carnivorous celestial Entities thriving on the fat from human hosts.
The Purgatory main stage will be reintroduced as “Theatre Macabre,” where the audience members become the stars. This audience participation, interactive theatre features famous scenes from iconic horror films such as The Lost Boys, Exorcist, Carrie, Psycho and more.
Also new to Purgatory this year, are the world-renowned Street Drum Corps.
