Being the squeamish type, I usually avoid scary things like haunted houses and such. But my friend Elina convinced me that the hayride was more theatrical then scary.
So I finally braved taking a Haunted Hayride last night. Here’s the report of what happened by as told by my friend Elina.
"How Our Haunted Hayride was Briefly and Unintentionally Scary, A True story: Last night Cecil Castellucci and were sitting in the back of a hay-filled flatbed rolling through Griffith park as part of Haunted Hayride. The first attraction involves actors in creepy flesh colored bodysuits crawling out of a giant eyeball. As the truck approaches the second attraction we hear this loud metal clanging and the flatbed detaches from the vehicle that’s pulling it and rolls backwards down the hill. We’re all looking at each other like “Is this part of the shtick?” The truck crashes into a fence and comes to a stop with its wheels in a ditch. Employees and costumed actors come out to check on us and we realize “Oh, that WASN’T part of the show.” Cecil to me: “You know how to pick em.”“
I’ll add that the scary people with hands for faces and skeleton stripes of horror kindly helped to evacuate us. Feeling that was the scariest thing that could happen, I willingly climbed onto another hay filled flatbed and did it again. It was really great and had some beautiful staging.
