View Full Version : Nightmare New England

10-05-2008, 07:32 AM
Hello All,

It was a huge undertaking and we opened all four Haunted Houses and the Midway this weekend to record breaking attendance! (Record breaking for me personally) After working with Terror on the Fox and the Bad Boys for 18 years you start to get an idea of your attendance over time. A good opening weekend for us at Terror is usually around several hundred.
I was blown away this weekend when we swung open our doors to Nightmare New England and over 2500 people arrived! To all my friends in the Industry who helped me transition to my new home, I thank you.
Our customer feedback has been outstanding and our main focus at this point is bigger queue lines. We have several sponsors who have really stepped up to get involved with the event. WBCN - The Rock of Boston, Monster Energy Drink, Londonderry Ford and more.
If this past weekend is any indication of how people will be spending money on Haunts and Halloween, I think we will all have a tremendous season!

All my best for a safe and successful Haunting Season,

You whole entire state loves Halloween, its the home state of Salem.

There is no better place on Earth in October than Mass.

I'd love to come up there right now and spend a few days up there. Get some videos of your place would love to see it.

I had the opportunity to vistit Nightmare New England this past weekend. Let me tell you, I was very impressed! I live in Danvers (right next to Salem MA) and its only about an hour drive from there, about the same if your coming from Boston! This is the first haunt, (aside from the ones in Salem) that I have visited this year, and let me tell you, it is going to be hard for everyone else to meet my expectations now! I also got the chance to meet Tattoo, and even though the haunt was jam packed with people and he was very busy, he took the time to come out and welcome me and talk with me for a few minutes. Great guy overall! I cant say enough about him and the attraction and everyone who is working at the event! Good work by everyone!

I'll be checking out the new Spooky World and Haunted Acres later on in the month, and more than likely heading back to Nightmare New England to check it out one more time!

Thanks again Tattoo, good luck with the rest of your season!

Some of the Trail of Terror gang took the drive up to see Tatoo and Nightmare New England and were very very impressed. What a great location and the potential is unlimited. Actors were great and a lot of fun. The houses got (in my opinion) better and better as you went through, ending with Sleep Stalkers. Great job Tatoo and the gang!!!
Thanks for a awesome night.
Have a great season.
