Just thought I'd let everyone know that while working on a business plan for a new haunted attraction next year, I made an inquiry to Allied Specialty Insurance for a quote. I received a terse reply from a customer service rep that said they were "no longer assuming the risk for haunted attractions." I wonder what got their ghost? I recommend removing their link from the HauntWorld insurance company category.

I have contacted every one of the insurance companies listed and all the replys have been the same. "we are no longer offering haunted house insurance."

whats the deal?

Try bfbond.com I talked with them about 6 months ago but not recently. Let us know what happens.

If you go to amusementbusiness.com, there might be some links there for insurance companies. They will insure your haunted house, as that is the fair/carnival industry.

I was having trouble finding insurance as well. I finally went to my personal insurance agency and talked w/ the "business insurance" agent. He was able to find smaller, local insurance companies that had no problem insuring haunts - and the rates were much lower than I expected.
Just an idea, if you haven't tried that route already.

Ditto that. Check the local phone book and ask for "SPECIAL EVENT" policies.

Normally a (1 mill) policy will run between $900 and $1,500

That's my experience anyway...

One thing nice about the C.H.A.O.S. seminar being offered is that there are insurance companies that will be there and offering discounts to those who get certified. Means money in the pocket and an insurance company that wants to work with you pronto.

Just write on a sign...

We can not be responsible for any accidents that may occour in this attraction. If you wish to enter be it on your own accord
I'm 13 and I could think of this why hasn't anyone else? :roll:

in reading about haunt insurance, is this something people that do HOME HAUNTS should look into as well? i mean, its in my yard and side of house. any help would be appreciated

Check with your home owners insurance policy. Im guessing it wont cover events like that on your property. As far as the "warning sign" goes, they do not hold up in court. Neither do the warnings on tickets and verbal warnings. If someone gets hurn you will be found liable. Anyone doing a haunt event should have insurance!

A sign just isn't enough... a haunt can be sue'd or shut down if an accident happens! No matter what the event, it's always best to have insurance! Sometimes, it's required by state! -Tyler

does anybody know the URLs to these two new insurance companies?

I am looking for one to cover my haunted yard/fundraiser for Make A Wish Foundation.

If anybody knows a good insurance company for this, please let me know ASAP

I just happened to come across this thread and wonder if the STICKY should be removed since the two companies apparently originally listed no longer off the service.

Any care to share the rates they're getting?
