Fearplex LIGHTS OUT Halloween Event In Pomona

Here is everything you need to know about LIGHTS OUT at Pomona Fearplex.

✅ Activities At LIGHTS OUT At Fearplex

There are a variety of activities you can participate in at LIGHTS OUT from haunted mazes, to creepy graveyards, to food and drink vendors, and more.

Here are some of the must do’s when you attend LIGHTS OUT.

1. Zombie Escape Maze

There are 3 haunted mazes here and I highly recommend checking out each one because the themes and experiences are quite different.

In the zombie maze, the goal is to make it out without becoming a zombie yourself.

2. Carnival Of Evil Maze

Another maze is the Carnival of Evil Maze.

This is not your typical cutesy carnival or circus.

Think themes like clowns, circus freaks, blood-red cotton candy, and more.

3. Nightmares Maze

Lastly, the third maze is the Nightmares Maze.

This maze features all the monsters and creatures that haunt you in your sleep.

I’ve also seen that this might be a black light experience, but I’ll be sure to confirm once they open this season!

4. Horror Characters & Movie Monsters

Out roaming the streets you’ll find your favorite horror character and movie monsters.

Be sure to post your pics after use the hashtag #FearplexLIGHTSOUT so they can see your photos and possibly share them.

5. Wax Museum

One of the interactive fright experiences at LIGHTS OUT is their monster wax museum, which looks so real.

You’ll see all your favorite horror and thriller movie characters here.

6. Creepy Graveyard

Another section of the event has a creepy graveyard walk through experience.

You’ll find some nods to Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion in here which was a fun surprise.

7. eTerror

In the eTerror section you can enjoy some of the best horror-themed video game and VR experiences, including taking a ride on a virtual adventure.

8. Scare Zones

If you’ve been to any of the theme park Halloween events like Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios or Fear Fest at King’s Island, you can get a good idea of what scare zones are like.

These are designated open areas that you’ll walk through throughout the event where they have scare actors or other elements that will keep you on your toes.

9. Zombieball Experience

Face off against zombies in this lightweight gellyball experience (essentially paintball with zombies).

✅ Food And Vendors For LIGHTS OUT At Fearplex

There are a couple food stands as well as vendors for shopping throughout the event.

The food is pretty basic, including chicken strips, hot dogs, nachos, and fries.

The themed desserts and drinks are much better and definitely worth trying on your visit here.

Some of the desserts include a brownie and a caramel cheesecake.

For drinks, I recommend trying one of their IV bags.

Each one is a pre-mixed cocktail that comes on a lanyard and can be re-sealed, so you can carry it with you throughout the night.

LIGHTS OUT / Oktoberfest Combo Ticket

There are two events taking place at Pomona Fairplex at the same time – LIGHTS OUT and Oktoberfest.

They are now offering a combo ticket for just $29.99 so you can attend both!

It’s recommended to use both tickets in the same night so you don’t have to pay for parking twice, but you don’t have to use it in the same night.

The only stipulation is that you can’t use the combo ticket October 27th – 31st.

Additionally, don’t forget that LIGHTS OUT is recommended for ages 13+ and Oktoberfest is a 21+ only event.
