I want to officially announce the I-70 Haunt Tour and invite everyone to come and check us out! The tour includes 2 haunted attractions: NecroPlanet (new home of Necropolis) in Columbia, MO and Mr. Bill's Thrills in Troy, MO. Each haunt will feature 2 attractions (so that's 4 total haunted attractions). The tour is Saturday, March 10. Tour bus transportation and dinner are included. The first bus will leave the convention center at 5:30pm and buses will leave every 15 minutes after that. Guests will first travel to NecroPlanet. When finished there they will get their dinner and travel to Mr. Bill's Thrills. There is also a ticket option for those who wish to drive themselves. Both haunts will be open on Saturday night until midnight. Mr. Bill's Thrills will also be open on Friday night, March 9th, NecroPlanet will only be open Saturday night. Again, the main tour (and the buses) is only on Saturday night. Further details, links to our websites and tickets can be purchased at www.I-70haunttour.com. Further info (and pics and videos) to follow, stay tuned!

Ok, so here are some "further details" on my half of the I-70 Haunt Tour, NecroPlanet. NecroPlanet is located in Columbia, MO which is 1.5 to 2 hours from St. Louis (depending on which part of St. Louis and how fast you drive) and features 3 Haunted Attractions: Necropolis, The Pit and Chaos in 3D. For the tour on March 10th, only Necropolis and The Pit will be open (Chaos was an outdoor attraction set up under a large tent and we don't want to risk the weather). Many of you will remember that Necropolis was part of a tour that we did for Transworld in 2009 and 2010. Since that time, we have added the other attractions and completely changed Necropolis (and have renamed the event NecroPlanet). Our event opened in 2005 and has been in our current location since 2006. NecroPlanet is housed inside a former meat packing factory, complete with all the old freezers and meat racks. Necropolis is our main attraction and features amazing set design, animatronics and special effects and illusions but really features our actors. We pride ourselves on being an "actor-focused" haunt, and we spend a lot of time and effort on our make-up, costumes and actor training. Necropolis is definitely intense and "in-your-face." The Pit is our twist on a pitch black haunt and features more amazing actors and some tricks and secrets that I don't want to give away before you experience it! Definitely not just a dark maze! Please remember that bus tickets are extrememly limited as we were only able to reserve a few buses, so if you plan on going you need to purchase tickets soon!
