Nights Of The Jack Returns To L.A. For Its 6th Spooky Season

The ultimate immersive Halloween experience.….

Nights Of The Jack, Los Angeles’ leading Halloween immersive event for all ages, is back this year for the sixth season and again promises to be bigger and brighter than ever.

Each year, the spooky spectacular welcomes over 100,000 people, from greater LA area residents to celebrity fans. Kicking off for opening night on Friday, Sept. 29, Nights of The Jack  will transform King Gillette Ranch in Calabasas into a shadowy Halloween wonderland that includes thousands of hand-carved pumpkins, an immersive walking trail, a Spookeasy bar and more.

Located thirty miles northwest of Hollywood, tucked in the Santa Monica Mountains, the event invites guests to follow the mile-long, immersive walking trail, glimmering at every turn with blazing gourds around every corner. This season, Nights of the Jack has created many new attractions, including adding advanced technology throughout the experience with a first-time AR scavenger hunt to earn prizes, AR selfie moments and digital carnival games for prizes.

There are also entirely new scenes, like Día De Los Muertos and The Enchanted Forest, to explore, unparalleled lantern art activations and tons of new photo moments.

Nights of the Jack

Nights Of The Jack is Halloween fun for everyone. Adults, families and children alike are welcome and won’t want to miss this hair-raising feast for the senses. Spooky but never scary, kids will love the enchanted renditions of their favorite characters in pumpkin-form and have fun amongst the big multi-sensory scenes.

Adults will appreciate the artistry and craftmanship of the elaborate sets and be able to enjoy alcohol from two full bars. And everyone can enjoy picking out Halloween gifts and light-up items from the souvenir shop.

Hungry among the haunts? Nights Of The Jack offers a premium food and beverage experience, including some of L.A.’s best food trucks. Thisty about the thrills?The Spookeasy is a high-end full bar and will have ample Halloween treats for adults, including top shelf spirits, cocktails, craft beer and wine. There will also be sweet treats, coffee, hot cider and cocoa nightly, with special additional dessert trucks on Wednesdays.

Guests can also celebrate a little bit of Calabasas’ history from this very location that inspired the event. According to legend dating back to 1824, a rancher from Oxnard spilled a wagonload of pumpkins in Calabasas while on the way to Los Angeles and later, hundreds of pumpkins sprouted alongside the road.

Past celebrity guests include Miley Cyrus, Rebel Wilson, Megan Fox, Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Travis Barker, Kylie Jenner, Dwayne Johnson, Charlize Theron, Jennifer Garner, Christina Aguilera, Matt Damon, Jamie Foxx, Hailey Bieber, Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, Halsey and many more.

“We are thrilled to be celebrating another Nights Of The Jack this year in Calabasas,” in a joint statement said by Nights of the Jack co-founders, Ben Biscotti and Tony Schubert. “We can’t wait to see what everyone thinks of the exciting new features this year, including interactive technology elements like digital carnival games, AR scavenger hunt and AR backgrounds to take your selfies to the next level. We look forward to entertaining everyone again for a bigger and brighter season.”
