Woodland Hills is about to become a dazzling wonderland for the fall as Haunt O’ Ween lights up the night with its signature extravaganza. Amongst the jaw-dropping new tricks and treats, there’ll be an exclusive “Daniel Spellbound” experience hidden within the grounds.
In Netflix’s highly-anticipated animated series by Matt Fernandes (“Remy & Boo,” “Dino Ranch” and “Kingdom Force”) and Boat Rocker Studios, magic is real – it’s just hidden from the public. But Daniel Spellbound knows just where to find it. Making his living “tracking” hard-to-find magical objects, Daniel catches the attention of the wrong people when he discovers a rare artifact and suddenly the fate of the magic world hangs in the balance.
While the series is only set to be released on October 27, you’ll get a glimpse of what’s to come with this supernatural scavenger hunt. The storyline is a fantastical take on urban culture and it’ll be seamlessly woven into this 200,000-square-foot playground.
Daniel and other characters will come to life through interactive codes hiding in plain sight across the themed worlds. From ghostly whispers at Hidden Hollows to digital apparitions in a potion bottle at Moonlight Magic, a spellbinding adventure is waiting to be discovered.
As you follow the map to track scannable codes, you’ll unlock original content on your mobile or collect numbers that unlock prizes. You’ll need to find all the numbers to reveal the whole message, so leave no pumpkin or gravestone unturned.
Once you pass through the Town of Haunt O’ Ween to fill your buckets with candy from spooky residents, there’ll be even more treats to collect. Stop by Daniel Spellbound’s house at the end of town and look for an actor resembling your average New Yorker, present your map and see if you cracked the puzzle. You could get extra candy, a special photo op, exclusive merch, or even a 3D character model of yourself by the show creators.
As we get the candy and popcorn for a marathon of seasonal films, this gives you a chance to hop off the sofa and step inside a cinematic world.
