We went to CGA’s Halloween Haunt last year, which was their first time having one. The event was so great! It was really crowded too. The link to last year’s report is below.

I was asked to go to CGA’s Media Day for Halloween Haunt this year, but I couldn’t make it on 10/3. We were lucky enough to get a second chance at it on 10/9. A few friends joined us and we all had a great time.
Along with the same mazes from last year, CGA added a new one called Toy Factory. They also added Shocking Sideshow of Freaks, which was a great show and Bang! Primeval Percussion.
You must arrive early for the opening. All of the ghouls gather around to hear their directions to scare everyone. I have a video clip from this. We have a really good picture with the guy on the front of the CGA Haunt website.
We’ll start off with reviews of the mazes:
CarnEvil – A must with 3-D glasses. Don’t go through it without them. They do a great job with the scare zone outside as well. I believe it is called the Gauntlet.
Club Blood – It has a couple of stripper poles…need I say more?
Slaughterhouse – I believe there was more gore last year, but this maze is absolutely disgusting. The gutting meat grinder is great, as well as the “store” at the end.
Toy Factory – I’ll start off by saying the song is annoying. The maze is fabulous! They are really creative. I don’t want to spoil it, so I won’t say what happens.
Cornstalkers – This is a very long maze. I like how it runs along the backside, behind Grizzly. There are many scares in here.
Camp Gonna Getcha – Last year, this wasn’t operating regularly. It is a little different because you’re in the log ride, but it is enjoyable. If you don’t want to get wet, don’t ride it.
Werewolf Canyon – Probably my favorite maze next to CarnEvil. The werewolves are great and they added some chainsaws to really make this scary.
Ed Alonzo – If you have seen him before, there probably isn’t much of a change. He is hilarious and crewd! Everyone enjoyed him. If you have kids, you might want to see the show before they see it.
Shocking Side Show of Freaks – This is a new show for this year. There is fire and fireworks. What more could you want?
Dave Hill’s Haunted Hypnotics – We didn’t watch this show. It was going on as we were leaving. If you like hypnosis, this is the show for you!
Bang! Primevil Percussion – A welcome change throughout the park. They don’t stay in one place.
This is a MUST
for Northern Californians to go to.
Time for the pics!
