Boney Island

Thu Oct 11, 2018
6:00pm to 10:00pm
All ages
$15 (under 2 free)

It's ba-ack! Boney Island, the Valley's most popular family-friendly lawn haunt, is staging a high profile comeback.

After being shut down last year by expensive bureaucratic issues (arising from its extreme popularity), the Boney crew have found a way to bring the annual treat back from the dead—by teaming up to share space with the Griffith Park Ghost Train.

Boney Island is as family-friendly as a haunt can be. Every inch of free space is filled with skeletons, most of whom are engaging in some form of magic trick (think rabbits in hats and cups and balls). Every 10 minutes or so an impressive musical light show takes place, with glow-in-the-dark fountains shooting phosphorescent streams of water high in the air under the direction of a wise-cracking skeleton host.

Other interactive highlights include a mind-reading skeleton (parents should hang near the back of the crowd, and don't spill the secret!), some cool optical illusions, and candles to blow out right through a window. Glowing souvenirs are available for purchase. Apart from that, we will all have to wait and see what's different in the new display!

Note that this is no longer a free event.
