If you’ve been looking for something fun to do this Halloween without going somewhere overly scary, look no further then Nights of the Jack at King Gillette Ranch in Malibu.
I was invited to the preview night, and let me tell you it was an ABSOLUTE BLAST!!
One of the first things you notice when you walk into the event are all of the different photo opportunities. From a themed step and repeat, to hay bales and pumpkins, haunted carriages, and fun fall and halloween cutouts you’ll almost be overwhelmed at all of the different photo opps. BUT if you’re anything like me, you’ll still get a photo with all of them.
They also had some great food trucks on hand. Baby’s Badass Burgers was one of them and D’Amores Pizza. I opted for pizza and it was soo amazing! If you haven’t tried D’Amores pizza yet, what are you waiting for?! Taste just like you’re in Italy. I also had an apple cider from the Joe Coffee Bike Cart which in the chilly Malibu night made me feel like Fall was indeed here. And is there a better feeling then that? I think not.
It gets even better though people, there is a kid free zone (and there will be a lot of kids! So good for families, but definitely nice to have this little get away area.) that sells alcoholic beverages!! They have the cutest themed cocktails and an adorable wine trailer called The Bubble Tap Trailer that serves prosecco and sparkling wine on tap, they also had different seasonal bottled beers if you wish. Pretty sure that Lance Bass has a stake in it too. **Insert all the feels of early 2000s boy band feelings here**
Now for the pumpkin maze! Honestly, words do not do it justice(and neither did my photos or videos.). It is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! You can tell all of the hard work that went into this exhibit (I heard it was two years in the making, and it shows!). Walking into the area you feel like you are in something that could be at Disneyland. And very much like It’s a Small World they had different themed areas with music that went with it in the different areas of the ranch. It was just impressive what they could with these pumpkins. Some of my favorite areas was the Lover’s Lane (They had a Prince Harry and Princess Meghan Markle Pumpkin!!), the Under the Sea area, the Rodeo Drive Walk, The Singing Pumpkins, and The Disney Princess Castle! It was all honestly just a dream.
So if you’re looking for something to do this Halloween season, I definitely recco going to Nights of the Jack at King Gillette Ranch in Malibu! It’s fun, not scary, and truly a different type of museum that you can take the whole family too or just go for a fun night out with your girlfriends!
Has anyone ever done something like this? Or are there some other unique fall activities in Los Angeles that should be on our radar? Tell me below, I’d love to hear!
