More on The Fleshyard
The Fleshyard debuted in 2014, after creator Adam LeBlanc left the popular Perdition Home haunt to open his own full-scale attraction. Since then, he has been steadily tweaking and expanding his work, resulting in one of the most gruesome and gory haunts in the SoCal area.
The haunted maze is set in a dilapidated farmhouse with a bloody history, which is outlined on the attraction’s website:
“…One day, a neighbor named Tobias Jones went to buy some meat from the Kearny Family Farm. On the road up to the farm he could smell the most intense and terrible rotting smell. Once he arrived at the farm, he found dead, rotting, mutilated animals all strewn over the place. Flies and crows buzzed all around the farm. He proceeded into the main house and found each of the members of the Kearny family lying dead having been viciously slaughtered… To this day, no one knows who or why the Kearny family was murdered. The stench of the Fleshyard could be smelled from miles around for weeks after. Some days, if the wind is just right, you can still smell the rotting decay of the Kearny Farm.”
The Fleshyard takes its inspiration from classic films like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Hills Have Eyes, and countless others involving dysfunctional rural families. Blood and guts coat nearly every room, and guests can expect to be threatened with all manner of chainsaws and other sharp instruments. The haunt is generally very traditional but includes some tight spaces and even some crawling, so guests should wear clothes they don’t mind getting a little dirty. Foul odors and water-based gags are also fair game – needless to say, it might get gross!
The haunt typically runs much longer than other small-scale attractions, often through the entire month of October and occasionally even earlier. The location may change from season to season occasion, so guests should check the official website for details on the upcoming production. Tickets are required and available through the website.
The Fleshyard is easy to recommend for fans of classic horror, especially those with a fondness for gore and 70s camp. It’s an atmospheric, grotesque world where the scares come early and often.
