ScareLA and MidSummer Scream: California gets ready for Halloween 2016

Good Afternoon Coaster Chit Chat readers!  Do you have any plans for the next two weekends?  Tired of the heat?  Looking for a comfortable, air conditioned venue for some weekend fun?  Are you ready for fall, and for Halloween?  Look no further than Long Beach’s Midsummer Scream July 30 and 31st, and, the following weekend, ScareLA in Pasadena.


Halloween Festival
July 30 & 31, 2016
Long Beach Convention Center
From Creepy LA and Theme Park Adventure

Midsummer Scream takes place at the Long Beach Convention Center.   Presentations will be done by Knott’s Berry Farm, Six Flags Magic Mountain, Universal Studios, and the Winchester House to name just a few.  Tickets are still available, starting at just $25.00 Visit for all the information and details.


The presentation from Knott’s Scary Farm will take place Sunday at 5:00p.m. in the Grand Ball Room.  As always, Knott’s Scary Farm will be awesome.  Ghost Town Streets is the original, largest, and most terrifying scare zone at the park which started it all. Bands of half-human, half-animal monsters prowl the streets and inhabit the fog. In Fiesta Village, Fiesta De Los Muertos fuses dance music, colorful costumes and larger than life stilt walkers in a dance party scare zone. On the Boardwalk, clowns crave undying attention in the CarnEVIL scare zone.


Six Flags Magic Mountain takes the stage in the Grand Ball Room on Sunday, 7/31 at 2:00p.m.  I am looking forward to the new plans to replace the loss of Aftermath, the maze that was in the old Batman Action Theatre.  I already know that Kwerk is not doing a Halloween show this year, so I wonder if there will be some other entertainer?


Just one week later, ScareLA will take place at the Pasadena Convention center August 6 and 7th.  The official host of the event is Elvira, (Cassandra Peterson).  I wonder if it will be announced that the Mistress will be returning for Knott’s Scary Farm in 2016?


This August 6 & 7th, join thousands of Halloween fans, vendors, and scare industry masterminds and creep through our 100,000+ sq.ft. showfloor at the Pasadena Convention Center!
