Los Angeles Haunted Hayride
Photograph: Jakob N. Layman

Far from those kid-friendly rides through a pumpkin patch, this hayride unleashes all sorts of demons, and bogeys on Griffith Park. It's an actual hayride—a long one—paired with a "scary-go-round" for wee ones (and 'fraidy cats), a number of scare zones and a pitch black maze filled with "demons and maniacs," and probably lots of frisky teenagers. This year's theme, "Secret Society," drags attendees through a trail of nightmarish characters, including an on-foot section.

Not cheap, but also not as expensive as Universal Horror Nights, you'll get the best bang for your buck if you arrive as close as possible to opening.  The Haunted Hayride transforms Griffith Park's Old Zoo into a Halloween festival, with small shows, photo opps, roving ghouls, mazes, scary-go-round, and of course--THE HAUNTED HAYRIDE.  The LAHH does fantastic work with its costumes and performers and changes up its theme and story every year, meaning there are always new, interesting sets to take a look at.  From operatic and absurd to gory and gruesome, taking a spin on the tractor pulled hay filled truck bed is fun way to get in the spirit of the season.  Lines get very long, but you won't need to spring for VIP if you plan on getting there early.
