HAUNTED HOUSE INDUSTRY UPDATES/TRADESHOW AND DARKNESS TOUR


We hope you prosperously survived the 2009 Halloween season.  Most are probably gearing up for the October 2010 haunting season already.  Hauntworld.com and HauntWorld Magazine are here to help you more than ever!  Our first 2010 issue of HauntWorld Magazine, issue 23, will be on your doorsteps soon with even more information than ever before.  The 2010 HauntWorld Magazines will focus more than ever on articles rich with content intended to directly benefit your haunt business.  The latest issue takes us to the New England area to learn from the successes of Fright Kingdom and Haunted Overload.  This magazine also features several how to articles about creating top notch movie-style trailers for your haunt and capturing breath-taking photos of your attraction for marketing.  We feel strongly that HWM issue 23 is the best issue we’ve ever produced with 68 pages of information to help your business!  

HWM issue 24 is already in the works and will feature Dent Schoolhouse in Ohio plus all the haunted attractions in Kansas City, Missouri.  HWM issue 24 will teach you the ins/outs and dos/donts of buying your own building, plus include concepts of detailing your haunt and creating original storylines throughout.  You won’t want to miss HauntWorld Magazine issue #24!

This summer, we will publish HWM #25.  Currently, we are looking for article ideas and deciding on which haunts to cover.  We welcome your feedback so if you have suggestions, please contact us today!  Email: darkrides@sbcglobal.net.  

HauntWorld Magazine will be getting a new magazine website.  Coming soon…www.HauntedHouseMagazine.com!  The new website will be uploaded prior to the 2010 Transworld Haunt and Halloween Attractions Show and feature nearly a hundred articles to help your business.  If you wish to subscribe to Hauntworld Magazine or purchase back issues now, go to www.HauntedHouseSupplies.com.

Speaking of the 2010 Transworld Haunt and Halloween Attractions Show, it’s once again being held in St. Louis, Missouri March 25-28, 2010.  The show features  more vendors, bigger show floor, more seminars, more events than ever before.  Learn all the details about this year’s show at www.HauntShow.com.  During the show, The Darkness Haunted House will open for three haunt tours including a behind the scenes tour on Thursday March 25 and live actors events on March 26 and 27th.  The Darkness has already been upgraded for the 2010 season.  The early renovations are specifically to accommodate the attendees of the March Transworld Show.  To purchase tour tickets or to learn more details, go to www.TheDarkness.com.  Go to www.HauntShow.com to learn all the details about the Tradeshow! 

Lastly, we are writing to inform you it’s time once again to renew your banner ads and online marketing campaigns on Hauntworld.com.  If you wish to reserve your space for 2010, please contact Patti Ludwinski direct at blacklightminigolf@sbcglobal.net.  If you are an existing HauntWorld Banner advertiser, the deadline to renew is March 5th, 2010.  We will open up Banner Ad sales inside our booth at the Transworld Haunt and Halloween Attractions show (booth #328), so to avoid a bump in banner ad location, be sure to renew your ads by the deadline.    

We have added some new and very exciting elements to Hauntworld’s network of websites for 2010 including a haunt directory on www.HauntedHouseMagazine.com, www.HauntedHayrides.com, and a new improved server to handle even more traffic, much more.  Please contact Patti today to discuss your 2010 marketing plans, blacklightminigolf@sbcglobal.net.  Our 2010 sales deck is available and ready to go.  Last year, the HauntWorld network set new records on traffic counts and we expect to exceed that for 2010!  Additionally, all featured haunts from Hauntworld.com were featured on www.MapQuest.com through an exclusive deal Hauntworld signed with AOL.com.  To prevent any server outages with the expected 2010 traffic, we have quadrupled our server capacity.  We are now looking forward to our biggest year ever!

We look forward to working with you again in 2010 and hope to see you at the 2010 Transworld Haunt Show!  Make sure to visit the Fright Forums on Hauntworld.com at http://www.hauntworld.com/haunted_house_forums/ to chat with the haunt industry!
