For the second year, Freeform opens its Halloween House, an interactive experience in the heart of Hollywood and the special destination for Halloween lovers. Bringing cult classics such as Hocus Pocus, Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, Ghostbusters, Scream, and The Addams Family to life, the program will transform the Hollywood Athletic Club into an immersive, multiroom Halloween haunt. The event will be open to the public Wed. Oct 2nd through Monday Oct. 7. Tickets are now available here.
Freeform has created new environments, heightened interactions and unexpected twists. The Halloween House will resurrect the iconic Sanderson Sisters’ cottage, where virgins (or not) can test their purity with the notorious black-flame candle, recreate the moonlit photoshoot on a vacuum and visit hallowed ground next to an updated Winifred statue. Oogie Boogie returns to incite a wild night of gambling and the scenic spiral hill reappears for the photo opportunities that are simply meant to be.
Once guests enter through the Halloween Town tree portal, they can explore their favorite worlds and new must-see additions. Interact with an animatronic Thackery Binx, call for another glorious morning from Winifred’s window, and climb even deeper into Billy’s Grave. Plus, guests can explore the Mayor’s town while driving his car or visiting the green fountain, get into trouble with Lock, Shock and Barrel as they chute down from their treehouse into Oogie’s lair, and even make themselves feel at home in the Addams Family living room.
Tickets begin at $27 at 31NightsofHalloween.com. A special 21+ Sanderson Sister drag-themed night will be hosted on Oct. 3, which will allow the biggest Hocus Pocus” fans to enjoy witchy cocktails while being serenaded by Winifred, Sarah and Mary.
