This is a family friendly drive through Halloween themed food experience.

Overall we had a lot of fun. The flashlight creature safari was my favorite part of the experience. I enjoyed the monsters in each scene bringing us the different food options. The food was good and I appreciated the vegan/vegetarian/gluten free options.

It did have a few flaws when we attended. They ran out of cupcakes and water when I asked for those items. When we sat around the virtual campfire in our car the stories were more ads and not really scary stories. There was no mention of the car costume contest during the event until I asked and they had to call someone to find out about it. (Apparently they will post photos of the winners on social media and you must keep an eye out then message them if it’s your car. They were unclear which platform or when this would happen.)

However the biggest issue was the time it took to get through the experience: We arrived at 9pm for our 9:15 tickets. Waited in line to check in until around 10pm. Got our first food bite around midnight. Arrived at virtual campfire around 1am.

Runs through November 1 – Tickets start at $49.99 per car

This is a fun, social distanced Halloween event. Guests are directed to park in front of a drive-in movie screen. A series of short videos play throughout the show while monsters roam and scare guests (that remain in their cars at all times).

I enjoyed the event immensely! I loved watching the monsters scare passengers of nearby cars as well as being surprised when they snuck up on me. I honestly didn’t watch much of the projected scenes, I was too busy enjoying the live performers. I liked that we could adjust the volume of the radio station to hear the movie screen. I’ve heard complaints about the price from other guests online, but I thought it was reasonable considering how many actors they employ and how few guests they will be able to accommodate this season due to cover restrictions and the new format.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Urban Legends of Southern California

HALLOWEEN IS SAVED IN ORANGE COUNTY

Innovative Halloween Haunt Drive-Thru Experience

“Urban Legends of Southern California”

to Take Place October 1 – November 1 at The OC Fair & Event Center

COSTA MESA, CA – The producers behind Winter Fest OC, Southern California’s annual holiday tradition, have developed an innovative and safe way for Halloween revelers and scare seekers to experience the thrills and chills of Halloween, while safely social distancing. “Urban Legends of Southern California” is a drive-thru Halloween Haunt at the OC Fair & Event Center running 24 nights – Wednesday to Sunday evenings from October 1 through November 1.

Devised from the whispered folklore that has tortured and terrorized countless generations of SoCal residents, Urban Legends of Southern California manifests the creatures and stories that have been born from the fates of the cursed and forsaken. This immersive drive-thru terror experience will have guests scrambling to lock their car doors…until they realize that they’re trapped inside!

As guests arrive during their reserved time session, their vehicles will be staged in groups through timed ticketing. Once inside the event, they will be guided in groups through five different Experiential Zones on a clearly outlined course that weaves together the tales of SoCal’s scariest Urban Legend monsters! Unique immersive scenes, coordinated lighting and sound effects, daring live performances, and dazzling special effects work together to give guests a terrifyingly fun, entertaining Halloween experience. The drive-thru experience is about 45-minutes long.

“With the challenges of being able to safely host a traditional Halloween haunt during these unprecedented times, many of Southern California’s popular Halloween haunts unfortunately are cancelling,” said Mark Entner, executive producer of Urban Legends of Southern California. “Our team felt as though we had to provide an innovative and safe solution for the thousands of Southern Californians who look forward to enjoying the Halloween season each Fall. Our Urban Legends monsters each have ties to Southern California, and we think this is going to be an incredible immersive experience for our guests, while keeping it safe for everyone.”

Entry to the event is through online ticket purchases only with limited reservations available per time session. Early bird admission tickets start at only $49.99 per vehicle on select nights and include up to five people in each vehicle. VIP tickets, group tickets for larger vehicles of six or more people and season passes to all 24 nights are also available now atUrbanLegendsHaunt.com. Guests are encouraged to buy in advance to take advantage of early bird pricing and reserve their date and time session before they sell out. 

Advanced safety measures are being taken following the CDC, State and local guidelines, including daily health screenings and body temperature checks, routine cleaning and sanitizing along with regular COVID-19 testing for all team members. All team members, including monsters, are required to wear masks and social distance at all times. Guests are also required to stay in their vehicles at all times during the experience and wear masks if they choose to roll their windows down to fully enjoy the immersive experience. Guests will also be required to turn off their vehicles inside each show zone. The entire event is outside in the open air.

HALLOWEEN – NYC Halloween Parade – NY

NYC HALLOWEEN PARADE

We didn’t have much time to spend at the parade, but we stopped by in between going to Bane Haunted House & seeing Then She Fell on Halloween night. I recommend spending the entire evening and arriving early so you can get close to the parade route and see everything. Even though we were only there for a short while, it was an incredible experience.
