Tucked away in a small corner of Los Angeles is a magical place that comes to life every October for guests of all ages to enjoy. Held for 19 years in a residential neighborhood, Boney Island now comes to life this year in Griffith Park at the Los Angeles Live Steamers between their "Ghost Train" and Travel Town.
It's the most fun you'll have this Halloween season!
Boney Island features skeletons performing rope tricks, levitating through hoops, and shadow puppetry. There are side show-type gags and a host of other oddities, including singing shrubbery, anti-gravity water, bantering spiders, a flock of skeletal hummingbirds, and many other details that even long-time fans will not have seen on previous visits.
All of your favorites are back, plus the skeletons have a few new tricks up their sleeves!
See Maestro Maxilla, your animated skeleton host, and a cluster of rascally cauldrons that have minds - and attitudes - of their own. Water dances and leaps from cauldron to cauldron as music plays, and a stunning assortment of grinning Jack-o'-lanterns perform, all synced in time with the music!
Prepare to be dazzled!
