    After many years of being the force behind the leading Haunted House Directory and #1 Haunted House Magazine, Larry Kirchner has stepped down as the president of Hauntworld Inc. For an undisclosed amount of money, Leonard Pickel of the former Haunted Attraction Magazine and the current Hauntcon has purchased rights to everything Hauntworld related. Leonard plans on bringing Haunted Attraction Magazine back from the grave and merging it with Hauntworld Magazine to bring haunt lovers a new breed of haunt magazine. Halloween Productions will cease to exist and will join forces with Leonard Pickel's Hauntrepreneurs, a haunt consulting company. Leonard Pickel hopes to bring customers an old school aproach with a modern horror twist.

    2013 will be the final year for The Darkness Haunted House and Larry's final year as chief owner and operator. All props, sets and costumes will be auctioned off. Larry plans to retire and use the money made from the auction to reconnect with his long lost son Scott Tater Lynd. Father and son will be taking a trip around the world to reconnect and have plans to open a turnip farm. Scott will be be changing his name to Scott Tater Kirchner.

    In the days of Facebook, where you get hit with April Fools jokes by the dozen shortly after midnight on the 1st, by 8:00am it's impossible to trick anyone anymore.

    Funny! You know the truth is that I do care deeply about the haunted house industry. I have done everything I ever could to promote the haunt industry as well. The money we take in from selling banners and stuff only helps me to continue to promote the industry. I have been offered many times to sell this site but I've turned them all down because its not about money to me. I would only consider selling it if I thought it was going to actually help the industry more than what we can do. Until I see that proposal its not for sale.

    I spend all my money on my haunts and I spend all the money Hauntworld makes on promoting haunts or hauntworld itself... I do what wonder what will happen with this site when I'm gone. Patti loves the site she's made the site her life now... hopefully one of us can last a while! LOL
