I will be at the 2009 IAAPA Show (www.iaapa.org (http://www.iaapa.org)) in Orlando, Florida, November 18-21 (Tuesday through Friday).

I STRONGLY advice EVERY haunt owner attend this show because you can find several really cool products and services for your business here...stuff you can find NO WHERE ELSE and I'm serious!


Our company will have a booth we're in the 5,000 something row ... several big haunt vendors will be there including Creative Visions, Gore Galore, Scarefactory, and many others.

I will report to you daily whats going on and upload photos!

Transworld is also hosting a haunt owner/vendor party which is being held at some local place free food and drinks. YOU SHOULD COME FOR SURE!

Do you know what night the TW party is?

I'll see "yinz guys" down there starting tomorrow.

I will in no way miss the snow that is currently falling outside my window either ...

I am not going to iappa this year. But I was at Universal during the season so you all are in for a good haunt.

I think it will be a fun event this year for all you attending.

Anyone who wants to call in live from iaapa please do. I will get it on RFR during the show.

So please call in your iappa wishes, comments, etc. from the event.

Its a voicemail so you don't have to actually have the dis-pleasure of speaking with me. hahaha.

Here is some pics from IAAPA... there are A LOT OF haunted vendors here you are really missing out. I have personally talked with about 50 vendors and most of them said they will come to St. Louis Transworld.

Hopefully IAAPA to some degree can be brought to you... IAAPA is a great show thats for sure. I talked to several of the PYRO companies and they told me they are coming to St. Louis, they can't wait.

Transworld has a booth here and held an awesome event for the vendors and buyers. Everyone is having a blast. Wish you could be here.

Hopefully these pics will do.

Larry, Thanks for the coverage. Scarefactory looks a little lonely not being in a darkzone.

11-23-2008, 04:25 PM
I think we should all just go there starting next year so the vendors start flocking to more of our tradeshows and get heavy assimilation across industries.

Got back from IAAPA. I plan on posting a ton of pics sometime tonight.

I also went to a new place called TREX...got some pics of that as well.

TREX is an awesome place isn't Larry? Very cool looking, obviously from the same people behind Rainforest Cafe!!! The meteor shower creates a cool effect on the dinosaurs!!

We also found our way over to T-Rex, very cool place, if my kids were with me they would have loved it. On the other hand, my parents (the grandparents) would have hated it, it's pretty loud in there. The ice cave was impressive.

Here's some links:

I am surprised more people aren't all over this exposed Monkey animation from IAAPA...

I thought it was pretty cool!

I really like the Texture Plus company you hav a pic of. I went to their website, and i really like their stuff.

But man, that stuff can get really expensive.

$64.00 for 8 sq./ft. of faux brick siding!

Cool Pics.

Monkey is cool, cover him up he looks cold. lol

I liked pics 3 & 4 and number 3 in the second block of pics.

Thank you !

Texture Stuff does look cool, but yeah it is expensive. When I was an extra filming the Depp movie PUBLIC ENEMIES in March, they had some veery cool looking coble stone steet stuff to give that 1920's street look. It was basically rubber and came out in 4x8 sections and they locked together. I would love to have that stuff for the floors of my haunt, but I am sure it is $$$$

Every haunted house owner should attend this show and I mean everyone but I know it is VERY hard for haunters to attend because of the time of year the show falls...just after you close your haunts.

From what I'm hearing from Transworld they have signed up like 25 or something vendors from this years IAAPA show to display at their show...that is awesome news. I think haunt vendors will be happy they attend thats for sure!
