The Indian summer we are all experiencing may not be a signifier that we have crept into fall but I have to remind you its that time of year again when tikes put on cute little costumes and go door to door asking for candy. Consequently, the city also opens up it’s imagination and prepares to scare you at Griffith Park for this years 3rd Annual Los Angeles Haunted Hayride at the Griffith Park Old Zoo.
I went to attend the opening VIP event and had an incredible time exploring all it had to offer. Goblins, ghouls, and men with chain saws were everywhere, but whose NOT afraid of the boogey man? Krysten Ritter, Nikki Reed, Thomas Dekker, Gillian Zinser, Greer Grammer, Ashley Benson, Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell and Keegan Allen from Pretty Little Liars, Jamie Lynn Sigler, Christopher Mintz Plasse, Chris Colfer, Genie Fitzgerald, Lindsey Lerman, Shameless’ Cameron Monaghan, Sarah Shahi, George Kotsiopoulos, and many more!
The hayride itself lasts about 20 minutes and is creatively put together to ensure whatever your greatest fear is i.e. scary clowns, two singing twins holding hands, chainsaw massacres, etc. will be confronted. Other noteworthy attractions to check out were the in between maze, house of mirrors, the wonder show, and the merry go round made of horse skeletons. I suggest you bring a date and lunge into the arms of the person you’re with when you get scared to ensure a perfect safe night out !
