Urban Legends Haunt at the OC Fair & Event Center is implementing new elements based on early guest feedback after its inaugural opening weekend. The additional elements include more scares, a fifth immersive show zone featuring clowns with chainsaws, double the number of actors throughout the show, and limited “jump scares” in accordance with COVID-19 social distancing restrictions.
“With any first year event, especially one that has never been done before, you have to be ready to make immediate adjustments based on guest feedback,” said Mark Entner, Executive Producer of Urban Legends Haunt. “Our team of more than 100 actors, dancers, ushers and production crew are not only grateful to have the opportunity to produce an event while so many other events are canceled, but we are also committed to reinventing how the Halloween season can be safely celebrated especially during these unprecedented times.”
Urban Legends Haunt continues through November 1st with more than 18 additional nights of shows, including many promotional nights.
