Haunted Houses 2012

Mon, November 21, 2011

The haunted houses season has come to an end with most haunted houses closing including the year around haunts found in tourist towns like Niagara Falls, Branson and more.  Year around haunted houses typically open back up in Spring and the mass majority of haunted houses open in September and October.  Haunted Houses had another great year despite the economy however some haunted houses around the midwest suffered some lower attendance but mostly revenue was up due to price increases.  Many haunted houses around the East Coast was hit with early snow fall and lots of rain cutting into attendance.  Haunted Houses are mostly flat in attendance increases due mostly to rapid growth over the past 5 to 10 years hitting peaks in overall attendance.  Most Haunted Houses are trying to maintain attendance while growing revenue through price increases, speed tickets, and merchandise.  

Many haunted houses are now building their brand nationwide through national TV shows, or simply through national press.  Haunted Houses across America once again enjoyed coverage on tv shows from Weather Channel to Travel Channel to even Martha Stewert Show.  Haunted Houses have become the new traditional way to celebrate Halloween.  20 years ago most people celebrated Halloween by carving a pumpkin, watching a scary movie and taking the kids trick or treating but today it starts with visiting a haunted house and ends with adult costume parties typically the Saturday prior to Halloween and finally taking the kids out trick or treating. 

Most people assume haunted houses best nights are Halloween when in fact Halloween and the weekend prior to Halloween is a drop off in business.  Most haunted houses best weekends are 2 or even 3 weeks prior to Halloween.  The deeper you get into Halloween the more competition Haunted Houses have for customers attention which would include Halloween Parties, Trick or Treating or even visiting a Pumpkin Patch.
