View Full Version : Get a Custom Branded iPhone App For Your Haunted Attraction (BETA TESTING)

08-19-2010, 07:25 PM

If you operate a haunted attraction, how would you like to be able to offer your customers a custom branded iPhone application featuring your haunted attractions news & updates for year round access? Our service allows haunters to offer a iPhone application "Free" to their customers that will feature content specific to their attraction. Your customers can read the latest news from the haunt, find out about ticketing information, attraction information, read the haunts FAQ's, read behind the scenes information on how the haunt was built, watch videos, listen to audio podcast, view photos, and more, year round! Doesn't matter if they are standing in line at your attraction or if they are home sitting on the couch! This app is limited only by the amount of content that the haunt provides to it. This is a great way to not only reach you customers, but continue to communicate with them year round, beyond the haunt season without them visiting your website. Your App will be available via the Apple Store for download to your customers iPhone or iPod Touch.

We are currently Beta testing this service with a few select haunts right now, but I'm looking for a few more to test the service and gather feedback to help improve it before it's official launch. Currently, we can provide a haunt with a test build of their App within 48 hours of sign-up. If you are interested in obtaining a iPhone App for your customers this season, then please email at movierelics@gmail.com. I'm currently looking for two additional haunts to test with. If you wish to test the app, you must have an iPhone or iPod Touch. Please let me know here or via email any questions that you may have.

What else can the app do? Or what can't it do?

If you would like to email me with the specific needs that you have or would like for it to do, I'm sure we can find out if it's possible.

Just wanted to answer some common questions that I've already gotten.

Q: Can customers purchase tickets online via the app?
A: Your customers can purchase tickets via the App if you offer online ticket purchasing and your ticket vendor provides a iPhone compatible version of their checkout system. The checkout process is done via a web browser interface from inside the app so your user doesn't have to leave it.

Q: Can you provide Que Line Wait Time Updates?
A: Yes, you can publish current wait times to your haunt via the app.

Q: Can you send them special live updates in realtime?
A: Yes, there is a Push option available. For example, suppose your having a slow night. You could "Push" an announcement to all your App users about a special half off ticket price for the next 4 hours. Customers with the App installed on their device would get a message about it. Even if the app is closed.

Q: Can I see examples of the interface?
A: Not just yet. We will be posting images of the interface when our site officially launches shortly, but currently we are wanting to do some final testing with haunts to smooth out all the kinks in the system before showing the details as they may change.

Q: Is this only for the iPhone and iPod?
A: Yes, currently this is only for the iPhone and iPod. We will be releasing an android version at a later time.

Q: How do I get chosen to test this?
A: Right now we are curenntly looking for professional haunted attractions to ensure a wide test base. If you are a pro haunt and would like to arrange for a test app, then send an email to movierelics@gmail.com.

Q: How long will it take to get a App for my Haunt to test?
A: If a haunt is able to provide us with copies of their logo to create the required images for the app, we have been able to create a test app within 24-48 hours from receipt of materials. Content that appears inside the app is the responsibility of the haunt to create via a web based interface.

We are right now focusing on the iPhone / iPod Touch version of the apps right now. But we do have plans to launch an Android version at a later time.

I just wanted to give a big thanks to those that have shown interest into this new service and for those haunts that have been helping by testing and providing feedback. Because of the feedback, we will be offering a streamlined service to get haunts up and running with their apps quickly at launch. Thank you to all!

We are in love with the App and can see our customers going nuts over it. Great idea and fantastic to work with. All of our friends and volunteers are eager to download it as well. It is working as a great tool for snagging sponsorships, too. I would highly recommend this when it becomes available!

Thank you to everyone that have sent private messages and emails asking about the service and when it will be available. The response has been great! I'm trying to put the finishing touches on everything so we can open launch our service soon. The plan is to hopefully get everything running so we can offer Apps to haunts during the season so you can advertise it to your customers. That's the plan, but the service will only launch only when we can guarantee quality of service.

In the mean time, be sure to visit http://www.hauntapps.com or our fan page on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/HauntApps/136226486419299 to sign up for updates! When there is an announcement, we will be posting them to our site and fan page!
