REVIEW: TOLUCA LAKE PUMPKIN FESTIVAL
We came across a hidden gem in Toluca Lake: a maze tucked behind a pumpkin patch. This was a random find because I happened to see a hand painted sign during my drive between Backwoods and Urban Death. The sign simply stated: “petting zoo! maze!” Curiosity got the best of me, so I got my $6 ticket and queued up.
The maze itself is decorated with numerous dummies and robotics. Junk litters the floor and covers the walls while sounds are being played from mysterious places. There are moments where I couldn’t even tell if the animatronics were people or not. There is one lone scaractor, played by the creator who owns the flower shop next door. I won’t spoil his appearance for you as it happens unexpectedly and serves as the only scare factor within the maze.
This is a special haunt unlike any others I have been to. It has elements of carnival sideshows, horror and straight-up weirdness. My only complaint is that I wish it were longer and had a name. Totally worth a visit!
