According to their Facebook page, the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride will be returning in 2010 for their second year. They claim that “big news” will be coming soon and that 2010 will feature new designs. We’re excited to hear what this big news might be. We’re hoping maybe an expansion of the hayride or an addition of a haunted house/maze. They certainly have the room for it on the grounds.
We attended in 2009 and were impressed by the event overall, given that it was their first year. They were pretty organized, and the sets were cool. Overall, we didn’t think it was too scary, but it takes a lot to scare us these days. The price was a little steep ($25 Thurs-Sun), but if they added a maze or something else to that price, it might be worth it.
The location can’t be beat, though. It really is in spooky ranch area, or at least as “ranch” as you can get just off the 101 freeway. And given that L.A. has no other haunted hayride, their lack of competition should really allow this event to grow. We’ll keep you posted when we hear more about what they’re planning for 2010.
In the meantime, check out some video from last year:
