Get Scared in Downtown Los Angeles!

This year for the first time ever, downtown Los Angeles will be hosting TWO haunted houses! Now is the time to take advantage of Hollywood Blackout Haunted Housevacation hotel deals. You can experience Halloween from the mind of Hollywood producers at the Blumhouse of Horrors or New York’s famous Blackout Haunted House, coming to Los Angeles this year.

Blumhouse of Horrors is a haunted house built at the 87-year-old Variety Arts Theater downtown. From the producer of “Paranormal Activity” and “Insidious,” the haunted house is set in a location that is already rumored to be haunted. You can explore the corridors, dressing rooms, and stage of a possessed theater once home to a twisted dark art magician.

The Blumhouse of Horrors opens to the public tomorrow, October 4 at 6pm at 940 South Figueroa Street in downtown Los Angeles. Presale tickets are available for $29 online only. General admission at the door is $35. You can skip the line with VIP tickets priced at $55. Tickets are available until November 3, when the attraction closes for the season.   

There is not much information available yet on the Blackout Haunted House, besides that it continues to be popular in New York City for the last few years. What makes the event unique is that visitors must walk through the dark maze alone, with only a mask and flashlight for protection. From the reviews, this is not an adventure for the kids, as no one under 18 is allowed. Fog, strobe lights, complete darkness, crawling, stairs, loud noises, water, physical contact, sexual and violent situations are all part of the attractions. All patrons are required to sign a waiver before entering.

Tickets are $35 on school nights and $35 on weekends and Halloween. Performances are every hour from 7pm to 10pm on weeknights with an additional 6pm slot on weekends. The Blackout Open House will be open at 207 South Broadway, 2nd Floor in downtown Los Angeles from October 26 to November 4.
