Organizers of the first-ever Hauntoween LA are providing more details about the drive-thru event.
According to information provided about the event, is scheduled to take place daily from Oct. 9-31 from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. Pacific Time at 6100 Topanga Canyon Blvd., Woodland Hills, CA. Experiential Supply is hosting the nearly month-long celebration.
Experiential Supply Founder and Chief Experience Officer Jasen Smith said of the company’s involvement in Hauntoween LA, “We can’t wait to show off our creation with all of Los Angeles. The excitement and support have been overwhelming. There are also a few surprises we haven’t announced yet!”
Families will enter the expansive experience through a large tunnel that is lit by more than 1,000 brightly-lit pumpkins. From there, guests will make their way through a blacklight tunnel that is powered by the creative forces behind FX network’s hit show What We Do In The Shadows. The series’ first two seasons are streaming on Hulu.
Also featured in the presentation are mini-maze routes, a pumpkin patch that will let guests pick a pumpkin to take home, and costumed actors who will provide in-vehicle trick-or-treating on a two-street, built-out neighborhood with lots of candy and decorations for children.
Additionally, family music act The Beatbuds will provide musical entertainment during the event at select, surprise times. Select photo and video opportunities will also allow families to make their own memories.
Much of Hauntoween LA’s decorations are provided through national retailer Party City. Julie Roehm, the company’s Chief Marketing and Experience Officer, spoke on behalf of the organization about taking part in the festivities.
“We are so thrilled to support the inaugural Hauntoween LA as Party City shares the same mission to help families continue to safely celebrate Halloween,” said Roehm. “Despite an already scary year, there are still reasons to celebrate and plenty of new ways to make the season spook-tacular.”
As added measures, families will have to fill out waiver forms this year before entering. Off-duty Los Angeles Police Department officers will also patrol the region nightly. Anytime a vehicle’s windows are open, the vehicle’s occupants are required to wear masks.
Staff working in the pumpkin patch and trick-or-treat areas will have to wear gloves and masks. All candy will be sanitized prior to being given to families.
Space is limited for the event as a result of precautions taken due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Tickets are $70 per vehicle. Advance purchase is recommended due to the limited space. A limited number of drive-up tickets will also be available.
