Long Beach Zombie Walk Picture


Long Beach Zombie Walk Logo

Infamous Long Beach Zombie Walk
Fri., Oct. 14th @6PM, Sat., Oct. 15th @6PM,
and Sunday, October 16th @5PM

The zombie walk is an organized gathering of zombies who make their way into the streets of Long Beach around Shoreline Village (in a roundtrip 35-45 minute walk) in an orderly fashion. During the walk, participants are encouraged to remain in character as zombies and to communicate only in a manner consistent with zombie behavior, which may include grunting, groaning or slurred, moaning calls for “brains.” Pose for pictures. Dance like Michael Jackson in the “Thriller” music video. Act out a scene from The Walking Dead. Look menacing. Growl a lot and have fun doing so.

2014 Long Beach Zombie Walk VICTIM - "I’ll tell you, last year I was in Long Beach when you folks did the walk down Shoreline.  I had no clue what was going on, and it scared the absolute HELL out of me.  It was AWESOME!!" - B. Davis
 

Unhallowed Haunted Maze

"More frightening than what's available at the Queen Mary's Dark Harbor or Knott's Scarry Farm or similar professional mazes." - Grunion Gazzette

"A haunt that can be compared to a Knott's Scary Farm attraction. As a fan who indulges everything Halloween and attends all the events, I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this maze, but I was quickly impressed." - Long Beach Post

Unhallowed Haunted Maze Attraction - NEW "DEAD END"
Everything You Fear and More...

Have you ever felt…trapped?  Let us show you what it feels like to try to escape from the unseen, that is where the real terror starts.

Annually, Unhallowed picks a new theme and redesigns many aspects of the attraction to ensure repeat visitors have unique experiences. 

For 2016 Unhallowed Productions takes you on an intense and terrifying 3500-square-foot journey through six different scare zones, in this year’s themed attraction, DEAD END

Anyone who’s ever visited an Unhallowed maze is aware it’s very different from the typical haunt. Incorporating indoor and outdoor scare zones, Unhallowed’s DEAD END is sure to disorient even the most seasoned maze goer. The frights are so real that it’s easy for groups – limited to between three and six people for an ultimate multi-scare experience – to become separated. This attraction is not recommended for the faint of heart as your fears will be tested to the limits. 

With the dead lurking and waiting around every corner, are you brave enough to face what’s lurking on these unhallowed grounds as you try to find the ONLY way out?
