Freeform is kicking off Halloween with a free, socially distant experience in Los Angeles. Freeform Halloween Road is an outdoor event all behind the wheel of your car.
For the third year in a row, Freeform is creating an immersive event that will take fans on a thrilling journey through some of the most nostalgic Halloween movies, including “Hocus Pocus,” “Ghostbusters” and “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.” Freeform will fright and delight guests with themed surprises, interactive experiences, live entertainment, and exciting photo moments—all from the safety of their own vehicles. Guests can also look forward to additional themed environments from other “31 Nights of Halloween” films.
The FREE experience will take place at Heritage Square Museum in Los Angeles, California, and is open to the public from Friday, October 2, through Sunday, October 4. Reservations are required to attend. Subscribe HERE for reservations and event details.
For the second year, Freeform opens its ghoulish gates to Freeform’s Halloween House, an interactive experience in the heart of Hollywood and the ultimate destination for Halloween lovers. Bringing cult classics to life including “Hocus Pocus,” “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas,” “The Addams Family” and other fan-favorite movies from Freeform’s “31 Nights of Halloween” programming stunt, the network will transform the historic Hollywood Athletic Club into an immersive, multiroom Halloween sanctuary. Open to the public from Wednesday, October 2, through Monday, October 7, the limited time encounter will bring back buzzed-about photo opportunities, as well as new activations that will surely give guests the chills. Tickets are now available HERE.
Going bigger and bolder, Freeform has created new environments, heightened interactions and unexpected twists. The Halloween House will resurrect the iconic Sanderson Sisters’ cottage, where virgins (or not) can test their purity with the notorious black-flame candle, recreate the moonlit photoshoot on a vacuum and visit hallowed ground next to an updated Winifred statue. Oogie Boogie returns to incite a wild night of gambling and the scenic spiral hill reappears for the photo opportunities that are simply meant to be.
Once guests enter through the Halloween Town tree portal, they can explore their favorite worlds and new must-see additions. Interact with an animatronic Thackery Binx, call for another glorious morning from Winifred’s window, and climb even deeper into Billy’s Grave. Plus, guests can explore the Mayor’s town while driving his car or visiting the green fountain, get into trouble with Lock, Shock and Barrel as they chute down from their treehouse into Oogie’s lair, and even make themselves feel at home in the Addams Family living room.
Tickets begin at $27 at 31NightsofHalloween.com. A special 21+ Sanderson Sister drag-themed night will be hosted on Oct. 3, which will allow the biggest “Hocus Pocus” fans to enjoy witchy cocktails while being serenaded by Winifred, Sarah and Mary. Visitors will also enjoy tricks and treats by presenting sponsors Butterfinger and Party City.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has been delighting guests at Disneyland for over a month now and is only weeks away from opening to the general public at Walt Disney World. And to celebrate, Freeform will be offering fans a look backstage, behind-the-scenes of Star Wars: Galaxy’s edge by airing a two hour special on September 29 called Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Adventure Awaits.
Hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, the immersive and exclusive television event will invite audiences to explore the epic new lands and learn more about how this new planet of Batuu came to life. With celebrity guests including Kaley Cuoco, Keegan-Michael Key, Jay Leno, Sarah Hyland, Miles Brown, and more, Walt Disney Imagineers and Disney cast members will share how they brought Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to life with fascinating insider details.
The special will follow Harris as he meets up with Key for some laughs in Oga’s Cantina and takes a tour of Batuu; Hyland will learn about the tensions between the First Order and the Resistance and create her own droid at the Droid Depot; Leno will explore Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, inside and out, and Cuoco will take a special peek inside the highly anticipated and out-of-this-world attraction Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, opening December 5, 2019, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and January 17, 2020, at Disneyland park.
In celebration of Freeform’s recently announced “31 Nights of Halloween” programming event, the network is transforming the historic Lombardi House in Hollywood, California, into Freeform’s Halloween House, the ultimate destination for Halloween lovers.

A pair of skeleton hands will welcome guests straight into Mr. Oogie Boogie’s Lair, Dr. Finklestein’s Lab, and an interactive graveyard with 31 spooky tombstones. Plus, run amuck in the iconic Sanderson Sisters’ cottage and cast a spell in the giant witches’ cauldron, summon Winifred’s book, test your purity when lighting the magical black-flame candle, and see if you can spot Thackery Binx. The eerie experience will also feature one-of-a-kind photo moments for fans to capture on the scenic Spiral Hill like Jack Skellington and recreate the original film poster of “Hocus Pocus” with their witchy crews, and much more.
Freeform has expanded its annual Halloween programming event to “31 Nights of Halloween” bringing thrilling hits throughout the entire month. Beginning Oct. 1, audiences can enjoy fan-favorite Halloween movies, “Decorating Disney: Halloween Magic,” and specialized short-form content celebrating the holiday. This year, Freeform will also be the exclusive television home for the film “Hocus Pocus,” which is celebrating its 25 anniversary, and will end with an all-day marathon featuring the hauntingly beautiful Sanderson Sisters. Also marking a huge milestone, “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas” will celebrate its 25 anniversary on October 29.
