Halloween in Southern California

Thursday, May 20, 2004 2:29 PM

I’ll be in southern California during October for the theme parks’ Halloween events. I have a Monday night open. Question: should I spend this night at the haunted houses in the Valley (Fright Fair, Spookyhouse, and Riverton Cemetery) or drive to San Diego for their Haunts (Haunted Hotel, Frightmare on Market Street, and Haunted Trail)? Thanks!

None of the above.

You'll want to go to the world's first and made to be the best, theme park Halloween event - Knott's Scary Farm's Halloween Haunt.

If not, then go to the Queen Mary. Their event is top notch as well.

Good to see The Beaverhausen back!

I'd also suggest a trip to DL if for nothing more than the Haunted Mansion Holiday. Absolutely amazing makeover, like a completely new ride with spectacular new sets and animatronics/effects. I was totally blown away from how extensive of a makeover it was, well worth a visit even if you've been to the park before.

And the neat thing about HMH (so far at least) is that each year it is done up somewhat different. So from year to year it's not the same. It's a great idea and very popular too, so if you go to Disneyland you will want to get there early or get a fastpass. My advice, do both. You'll want to ride more then once.

Thanks, everybody. I had forgotten about HMH. Considering that I haven't ridden Indy yet, it'd probably be worth the $ to spend a day at Disneyland.
