Hauntoween L.A. celebrates the season of ghosts and goblins with a fun, immersive, interactive, and safe drive-thru experience. Hauntoween L.A. will be open daily, Oct. 9 – 31, from 3 to 9 p.m. at 6100 Topanga Canyon Blvd. in Woodland Hills.

This one-of-a-kind event comes to families from Experiential Supply, an award-winning company to which the Hollywood movie industry turns for large-scale, immersive experiences.

Hauntoween L.A. is a kid-friendly, non-scary adventure full of mesmerizing, social-shareable environments, vehicle video ops, and unique interactivity. And of course, lots of candy and a pumpkin to take home.

“Our kids are facing so many challenges right now, and we didn’t want the pandemic to ruin Halloween! We decided to create something relevant and exciting that could bring the whole L.A. community together,” says Experiential supply founder & chief experience officer Jasen Smith. “I’m personally invested — one of my daughters will turn five on Halloween, and I want her birthday to be special!”

THE HAUNTOWEEN L.A. EXPERIENCE

“Door to Door” Trick Or Treating 

It’s an ordinary neighborhood with a beautifully spooky Halloween overlay. Vehicles will pass down two streets, stopping door to door. Costumed (and safely masked) actors coming out from their “homes” with poles and buckets filled with wrapped candy will provide a re-imagined trick or treat experience.

Immersive Installations 

Vehicles will pass through an immersive jack-o-lantern tunnel with over 1,000 pumpkins, and many more mesmerizing installations.

Scenic Paths

The traditional Halloween vibe will be brought to life with an array of Halloween environments and mini-maze routes, including giant pumpkins, headless horsemen, and countless spider webs.

Interactive Pumpkin Patch

Each vehicle’s passengers will choose a pumpkin, which will be sanitized and placed in a plastic bag. As vehicles drive through a windy-themed pumpkin patch, families can retrieve their pumpkins from a drive-up container or have them placed in their trunks.
