The IAHA Board of Directors is happy to report that IAHA and IAAPA have reached an agreement for the benefit of Haunted Attraction Members of both associations.

The International Association of Haunted Attractions (IAHA – www.iahaweb.com) and The International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA – www.iaapa.org) will work together to offer benefits to haunted attraction operators. “Since both our organizations serve haunted attraction owners and operators, this arrangement just made sense,” said IAAPA Executive Vice President Susan Mosedale. “We are confident members of both organizations will benefit.” Many of IAHA’s members already attend the IAAPA Attractions Expo, which will be held this year in Orlando, FL from November 12 -16. “As a result of this arrangement, IAHA members attending this year’s IAAPA trade show will see many benefits,” said Ken Donat, IAHA Tradeshow Committee Chair.

IAAPA will offer IAHA members a free trial membership valid from July 1, 2007 through December 31, 2007 (A $495 value). This membership will entitle all IAHA members to attend the IAAPA Attractions Expo 2007 in Orlando this November for the member rate of $80 (compared to the non-member price of $190). IAHA members will also be able to attend the Attractions Management School at the member price of $210 (compared to the non-member price of $335) and the workshop sessions for free (compared to the non-member price of $285).
On Thursday, November 15, IAAPA will host a behind the scenes tour of Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights. This event is open to all IAAPA and IAHA members. Not only will IAHA members receive the discounted IAAPA member price of $65, but IAHA members will also be given the first opportunity to register for this “limited availability” event.

“Universal’s Halloween Horror Night’s is one of the nation’s most respected haunted attractions,” said IAHA Marketing Director Brett Bertolino. “I am extremely excited that this agreement will allow our members to tour this extraordinary attraction during the off-season. Like the chance to see the Netherworld Haunted House at IAAPA's Attractions Expo in Atlanta last year, this is an opportunity not to be missed!”
