As the weather heats up, so does haunt preparation! Theme parks and independent haunts are hard at work building their mazes in preparation for haunt season, which seems to come earlier every year. Although official opening dates for haunts in Southern California are not announced yet, some of these events are beginning to schedule their open hire audition events.

In addition to scare actor jobs, haunts will be hiring construction crews, managers, makeup artists and more.

If you’re on the lookout for a haunt job this year, here are some dates to keep in mind:

Halloween Horror Nights Hollywood: June 21 and 22, 2019

Where: Hilton Los Angeles/Universal City

Auditions are early this year, so don’t miss out!

Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor: July 26 and 27, 2019

Knott’s Scary Farm: TBD

Open auditions haven’t been announced yet, but previous employees have been notified of their rehire application dates. Open hire dates are usually near the end of July. We will update when we have more info.

However, they are currently recruiting for a “Scare Zone Cast Leader,” if managing actors is more you style.
