Can I tell you how good it feels to be doing an update from something I experienced on my own for the first time in 7 months. REALLY good.
Last night we experienced the Haunted Hayride 2020: Live Drive-Up Experience and had an absolute blast.
It was a perfect socially distanced, masked up night out.

First, some highlights of the show. As somebody who went to the Drive-In a lot as a kid, and into my late teens, early 20's, I can say, this brought back a lot of fun memories.
Not really in "LA", but still technically LA County. And much further than our typical drive to the Hayride.
We're masked up and ready to go!! We were super impressed with the entry process, and them checking even in the back seat to make sure everybody was wearing masks.
Lots of familiar characters and voices while you wait.
Some props from previous hayrides!!
The Platinum Experience trailers. We opted for the VIP.
Lots of fun songs, movies, and oh yeah, monsters roaming around.
Just your typical stranded at the drive-in story.
Side note: Anybody else that newer cars (ours is a hybrid) don't have an "accessory" setting and you can't leave the radio on while the car is off? We had to turn ours off about 20 minutes in due to the constant warnings.
However, the sound was awesome and we didn't miss anything. We just wanted that extra "ooomph". =)
You can almost see the swing set in front of the screen. No, it's not really there, but anybody in GenX knows what I'm talking about.
Super happy with how some of these pics came out.
Lots of fun Monte Revolta tunes!!
We loved it. Make no mistake, we've had a few experiences at the Hayride in years past that weren't great, but this was. Was it your normal Halloween event, not in the least. But it was perfect for 2020 and we definitely can't recommend this enough. $100 well spent!
Get your tickets to LA Haunted Hayride soon. It's almost all sold out.
