Hats off to all of the awesome vendors for donating these prizes! Now the only worry everyone will have is staying sober enough to carry out the great prizes they win.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the support I have worked my butt off and will continute to gather up as many prizes as I can for everyone! Shane and its see you guys there!Shane this time.

01-31-2010, 10:42 PM
i would rather have a subscriiption to 13th hour magizine its the same damn price

02-01-2010, 06:37 AM
Call them up and buy ya a subscription? I seem to miss your point unless you don't like the price? What do you think I should charge? With the rent at the hotel, food, dj, staff? But if I read your post right your not coming so you should have some good reading in the magazine that evening. Shane and its you get what ya pay for see you all there! Shane this time.

02-01-2010, 11:53 AM
What the he// was the point of that? If you think Shane is making money on this you are way off, if anything he is spending money of his own. Just to rent the ball room at the Grand cost a lot. This is just like the biching people did about Larrys tour price and to quote Larry if you don't like the price then don't go but I can tell you you WILL miss a great kick off party. He// if you win one door prize you will make your money back three fold.

i would rather have a subscriiption to 13th hour magizine its the same damn price

02-01-2010, 04:28 PM
Let me chime in...

Seriously I'm SICK AND TIRED OF ALL THE CRYING in this industry. For me I really noticed it more than ever during the Vegas Haunt Tour...

People complained about long lines, didn't like the food, a bus got lost,the haunts sucked, the actors sucked, to what really hurt was taking shots at Rich and his wife for the job they did getting people onto those buses! They did an awesome job.

Last year I had some people ripping on me for the weather, actors aren't good enough, long lines, the power went off in a section to whatever...

Has anyone ever tried to organizing buses for 800 people? How many of you have taken risks to produce something for the industry??? You shouldn't be slamming these people but thanking them...

Do I think Shane will make money on this event... hell no I think he's a fool for doing it because he's only opening himself up to be slammed for everything someone doesn't like! Maybe the bar charges to much for drinks someone will hammer him for that after the fact, or whatever.

The biggest idiot is myself for even opening my haunt again and going through everything I'm going through to open again...

ANYONE WHO OWNS THEIR OWN ATTRACTION KNOWS... you can't open the first night without flaws or problems especially not in March, April or May or whenever all these shows are. You would think haunters would thank those haunts who open for Hauntcon, Transworld, MHC or where ever else... not pick them apart!

Shane won't make a dime on this event and if you don't think its worth $100 bucks or whatever don't go...

If you don't think seeing our haunt is worth the money don't go...

On the other hand I'm right with ya... if you don't think something is worth the money don't spend it. I go to stores all the time and say wow that is neat but not neat enough for that much money.

If you don't think 13th Hour Magazine is worth 90 bucks then don't buy it... If you don't think Hauntworld magazine is worth $40.00 don't get a subscription its really that simple.

Some people said our haunt tour is too much because we charge a lot less in October... DUH! Yeah but the difference is we're open nightly we can do as many as 4000 people and we're open for the mass public. Opening for a select few opening in the middle of your off season is hard to do and the costs are MASSIVE!

I raised the cost of HW magazine because I had to... the cost to mail it and print one is almost EXACTLY $10.00! So you pay $10.00 per issue... I'm not making a penny!

In most industries how to videos or books or whatever cost hundreds and in this industry everything is nearly free but still not good enough or cheap enough... funny!

There are costs to doing business people and YOU CHOOSE what they are... don't spend $8000.00 on a prop or animations and figure that is worth it when education isn't worth 40, 50 or even 200 bucks.

People complain about the seminars they complain about everything. Maybe we need to start appreciating more and ripping less.



02-01-2010, 05:56 PM
Shane, I hate to bring it up but Danny is the same guy that commented about the mud etc. at our haunt last season but bought a hoodie anyway.
Danny, come on man that wasnt called for and what does that magazine have to do with Shanes party?
You didnt say Larrys haunt tour was more than the magazine or is that on another post?
You didnt say the Columbia haunt tour was over priced or is that on another post also?
All the tours and parties that are going on this spring the owners and organizers of these haunts and events have been busting their butts all winter to give haunters a memorable show.
I try to not complain but I realize you are entitled to your opinion but I dont think your opinion needed to be broadcast all over the boards. Like others have said, if you dont want to go to them dont. Thats your option but dont be rude.
Until you have a haunt and open it up for the Masters of Horror (haunt owners) you have no idea what is needed to make one of these events sucessful.
Sorry Danny, I'm not trying to be mean just pointing out the facts.

Now, tickets are on sale and limited for the Columbia haunt tour
go to www.columbiahaunttour.com buy yours today!


02-01-2010, 07:20 PM
Thanks for the support and Danny I disagree with you but like me or anyone else you are entitled to your opinion.

Now let me say this about the party. I did not do this party for recognition if you don't know who I am by now then your head has been up your azz lol. If you think I did this for money you are wayyyyyyyyyyyy wrong as more then likely I will loose money. The food and room alone was over $17,000.00, I have spent $1000.00 on artwork ( to show everyone I was serious about this) also $2000.00 in advertizement, the DJ company $3000.00 extra hotel staff $1500.00 hours and hours of emails to vendors for their donations which by the way I can't say THANK THEM ENOUGH for THEIR support and kindness in making these donations. Right now I am in this for over $25,000.00. This its not about me its about making the TransWorld Haunt Show the best ever. I have stepped up to the plate and went out on a limb to make sure EVERYONE has a blast. Its not for me, its for us all. Someone had to take charge and I nominated myself for the job. Even with all that I still could not get a few free rooms I too am paying $139.00 per room per night.

Most here know how I used to be and I am still that way when it comes to doing people right. I believe in do unto othere as you would have them do unto you. I have learned alot in the past few years and will continue to learn more. Even as I type I am about to embark into the unknown life is about chances you take some and win and you take some and lose either way life is a risk and I felt you, me and the WHOLE INDUSTRY Vendors and Buyers alike is worth the chance. I love and respect you all. Will we have differenes hell yes but at the end of the day would I sit down and break bread with you HELL YES!

Everyone THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT whether I sell 10 tickets or 1000 I have put my heart into this for everyone to have a blast and we will! Thanks and its Shane Dabbs putting faith in the Industry! Shane this time.

02-02-2010, 06:58 AM
NONE of these events are really that expensive at all. I can't imagine those prices keeping people from attending. It could be that there is nothing to do and then you wouldn't have to worry about attending something. But then again you would all just cry about that too.

damon carson
02-02-2010, 08:48 AM
No offense but if you really spent $25.000 on this party let me ask you this? Do you really plan on doing this next year? That is if the Haunted Attractions show stays in St. Louis. Which it more than likely will. It sounds like a losing proposition. Thats great you did it for this year. But I dont see you continuing I dont care how many dvds your able to sell. Im sure last years party was much more affordable. But its your money.
Good luck,

02-02-2010, 09:12 AM
No offence I have always been one to back up what I say I never saying thing I can't prove and have proven statments on one than more ocassions. Anyway I will be more than happy to fax or email you or anyone cancelled checks the biggest being the $17,000.00 to the Ren Grand if for one minute you dought me or feel free to call Katie at the Ren Grand and tell her I gave you permission to call and ask what a party like mine is costing that should clear up any of your questions if you don't believe me which by your post you don't. I should not care but one of my biggest pet peevs one which I will fight over is for someone to make me out of a lie!

The DVD's has nothing to do with covering the party are you kidding? I had several ask for them and I am delivering plain and simply on the DVD thing. In reality if I cant get 70 to 75% of my money back yes I will scale back this party big time. If I can get at that much back yeah its worth the loss because in the future it will get bigger and bigger. Again people that don't take chances never find out. Instead of being like your neighbor and being negative why not do as Larry says and support everyting.

I know you have long been a big fan of Larry's and always looked to him as a mentor and there damn sure is not anything wrong with that. Again take his advice and don't be negative or trying to disprove or disbelieve anything someones says. If you go to the show and want it to grow support it better yet hell do like many of us has and shell out some of your own cash to help make it better and grow bigger. It's real easy to talk about it and down it when its not your money involved. I am thankful to God that I am able to take this gamble. Better yet buy a ticket and see for yourself. Shane and its put your money where your mouth is. TransWorld 2010 will be the best yet! Shane this time.

P.S. Yes it is my money and I am taking my part to help the Industry continue.

damon carson
02-02-2010, 12:53 PM
Shane sorry if you took offense but really I didnt say or was implying you did'nt spend that much. It just seemed like a phenomenal price compaired to what you might have paid last year. Thats great your willing to spend that kind of money. More power to you. I do plan on spending money there. I do every year. Even when it was in Chicago. But for that price I still dont know why its still a cash bar and you didnt get a free nights stay! LOL!
Take care,

02-02-2010, 01:10 PM
I understand I could have added $20.00 and had the drink tab covered but I did not see adding the additional money for the ones who do not drink. I don't drink myself but just because I don't does not mean others don't and so fourth. I did not have the option to offer two seperate tickets. Also I did not want the price over $85.00 I really did not want it over $55.00 or so but with all the expenses it was just not realistic.They did assure me that the drinks would be better priced at the party than what it would cost at the hotel bar and what that means I don't know as I have never bought a drink in my life and don't know what they cost.

Last year it was at Jakes Steaks and did not cost anything but it was a small place and some did not get to eat because there was no room also everyone at at different times bla,bla,bla, this way it will be funner and you can eat and drink all night in one place. Shane and its either way everyone will have a blast! Shane this time.

02-02-2010, 05:50 PM
Hey guys all the name calling is un-called for okay! Everyone has opinions on what something is worth or isn't worth and none of us have to agree with anyone elses opinions. I know I don't always agree with everyone else either... but we don't have to call people 'losers' or whatever.

Those posts have been removed! I am one who believes that most haunters do NOT VALUE educational materials, events, and experiences nearly enough! Some wonder why one haunt is blowing away the next haunt or your haunt when you think you have a better haunt... blah, blah!

I can almost always tell you why... you don't value education! You must be a good business person, understanding its more than just props and bloody actors. You should run your haunt like a movie studio releases a film... it takes good images, trailers, website, marketing, promotions, pr you do all of that before one person sees the movie. So see your haunt is secondary to the business side of being a success.

What I don't and NEVER will understand is how some haunt owners put high value on some new big prop, and don't second guess the purchase but won't spend an equal amount of money on their logos, websites, or even make top notch t-shirts for their staff who works the doors.

My haunt tour is an educational experience you get to see, touch, experience, learn new idea's and what is the real value of that? You need to decide and for those who think $50.00 is too much then you in my opinion don't understand business.

How much is a magazine worth, how much is one article worth, one idea, one anything that helps you become a better designer, business person, operational person or whatever... how much?

If you ask me there is NO amount too high if its worth it to me and my business... if I can use that information to advance myself and use that information to make more money, grown my business or do things better its worth every penny!

To listen to the constant gripes about how much something costs and how its outragous... we never hear 'hey that giant monster prop cost to much' we only hear it about magazines, videos, tours, website design, logo design, seminars, and so on and so forth... all of which are more important to your business than buying that giant monster prop.

Me personally I'm sick and tired of hearing about how something was a rip off because the lines are too long, the actors sucked, a bus got lost, the food wasn't good enough, not enough or one thing or another, it could be better therefore wasn't worth it...

Instead of being a critic try doing something yourself... put yourself out on a limb then you can say from experience you know what you are talking about. Try doing what Shane is doing, or I dare you to try and do what I tried to do last year or this year. Its not easy, its stressful, and very draining to hear all the complaints.

You know haunt tours are off season, you know these are peoples pride and joys, you know they are doing their best, you know Shane isn't going to make a killing for his event, and even if he did who cares... where in business does it say you must do something for free?

Open your haunt this season for free... yeah let me see that one!

Look if you've ever wondered why more good things don't happen in this industry these are the reasons why... who would ever want to put themselves through this type of ridicule?

Some people should be thankful that there are those who post photos of their work, offer you glimpses into their world, answer questions, throw out idea's and love to communicate!

Lets not lose that vital role over our egos! Bottom line if you want to go to Shanes even go if you don't then don't.. but don't whine about it and please don't whine after the fact either if something doesn't go just right!

If there is one thing I know about haunters... we are do it yourselfers... right???? We try and then we try again... we never quit and we eventually succeed! Where we have been told many times before we can't we always show that we can and if that wasn't the case we wouldn't be here! True?

So don't squash that spirit we all have so deep down inside of us!


02-02-2010, 06:59 PM
Well said man! Shane and its THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT! Shane this time.

02-02-2010, 08:29 PM
Ok next up we have Creepy Collections they are donating a body bag and one of their all new zombie heads this is a $500.00 value! Thanks Jerry for your support! Shane and its stay tuned! Shane this time.

Shane, I am really looking forward to attending your party this year. I really enjoyed your event last year, but… seeing how much effort you have put into organizing this years' gathering, I’m sure that it is going to be even more fun! How can anyone argue with this impressive line-up?…

- All you can eat food (with a wide variety of choices).
- Cash bar.
- DJ with music, video screens and dance floor.
- Costume contest judged by three well-known and respected individuals in the Haunted Attraction Industry, with $1,000 in cash prizes
- Door prizes from several of the Haunt Industry’s top vendors, with a combined value of several thousand dollars.

All of the tangible benefits aside, people should also consider that this will be a great networking opportunity, as well. It should be a blast!

02-04-2010, 11:15 AM
Thanks for noticing I have put much effort into this. I want it to be something that will continue for years to come. I feel the Industry is worth it and I hope they see that and attend this event. I also want all the buyers to see that the Vendors are giving back! They could have said no things are tight or times are slow or whatever and I have not had one vendor to turn this down!

The vendors are taking notice and I am so Thankful I have seen several of the vendors who has donated have also bought tickets. I would love to have this free but it was just not possible to pull off an event like this for free. My own crew and myself are buying tickets! But know I kept is as low WAIT actually lower than I needed to but I want EVERYONE TO ATTEND AND EVERYONE TO KNOW I AM SERIOUS ABOUT THIS AND PUTTING MY NAME ON IT!

HERE IS SOMTHING THATS JUST WILD!!! I just added up the prizes I have had donated by the vendors and right now its at the $10,000.00 MARK! GUYS IS AWSOME OR WHAT? Shane and I still got prizes coming! Shane this time,

damon carson
02-04-2010, 03:18 PM
Do you plan on printing the list of what vendors have donated. Maybe you have? Maybe I missed it.

02-04-2010, 03:53 PM
Kudos to you Shane for putting such a grand party.

Some sound like this is a new concept but this party isnt anything new didn't Crazy Bob do a party for what seemed like decades?

02-04-2010, 04:02 PM
I went to Crazy Bob's and it was cool but nothing even approaching the level that Shane is putting on with all the vendors, costume contest, food, drink, music. This will definitely be insane! Not to be missed.


02-04-2010, 04:02 PM
Yes but its been like 6 or 7 years but not on this level. But yes he did and thanks for noticing my hard work. Damon if you start at the beginning of this thread you will see where I have listed many items. Eric thanks for the vote of confidence in me I want let you guys down. One other thing not all prizes are listed some will be surprises but I have listed several. Shane and its take a look at them! Shane this time,

Haunted Illinois
02-04-2010, 04:20 PM

I have been building a list of vendors/prizes on my Transworld info page, if you don't want to search through this thread.


It is by no means the official list... Shane has that... but it is at the very least, most of what has been announced on this thread.

02-05-2010, 02:54 PM
Give away comes from Bucky's Boneyard they are donating a.....

Full size skeleton
Pr of skulls
15lb bag of assorted bones

This is a $265.00 value and I am sure will be well used in a Haunt somewhere! Thanks Linda for your support! Shane and its more to come! Shane this time.

02-07-2010, 02:56 PM
Just got 2 tickets to the Insane Shane kick off party, Columbia tour and the Darkness tour. This will be a great time at TW that's for sure!

See everyone there.

Man, between you and Larry this forum is nothing but a promotional tool for your party and his haunt tours! Just kidding with ya! But, by now we all know about these events, very much so!


02-16-2010, 07:25 PM
Great observation that's what this thread is about. Just as Larrys thread is about his tour and Gregs thread is about his tour and so on. I also might add Dark why should I not keep the word out I mean after all I have spent a bundle on this. I would ask you how much have you spent to support this show? LOL oh I will say just kidding too after making an uncalled for responce. Again this is about EVERYONE having a good time with vendors and buyers hanging out. Shane and its who ever made Dark look at this post! STOP IT HE DON'T WANT TO SEE IT! Shane this time.

It does not look like I will make it to St. Louis this year, I wanted to go to your party because it looks to be like the "Don't miss event of the week". Maybe next year. I want you to know that there are a lot of people that help make this industry bigger and better every year. Some own magazines, some own websites, some own world class haunts, some own all three but you are the voice of the people. I know you are not doing this to make money or get recognition but I recognize that you have a love for haunting and try to make it bigger and better every year for all. Thanks and I hope your party is a big hit and I hope to be there next year!

Sorry Shane,
I need to explain the prop donation a little more.
The Jawless Jane isa sereved head mounted on a "Dope on a Rope"
The "DOAR" is an actor prop.
It is a severed head of your choice mounted on a rope handle to use as an actor prop. It is built to take a beating and being an actor prop you know it will. The purpose is to quickly shove and shake it in the faces of your customers. It should assist with a quick startle, or if used subtly it will then help the creep factor of your actor.
We now have over 50 heads to choose from for this prop so you can equip several actors each with a unique head.

02-24-2010, 07:25 AM
Thanks for explaining I love it! I also so love the wall mounts you guys make they for sure are the bomb! Shane and its see ya soon! Shane this time.
