    My name's Bob Harper and I'm a veteran writer, producer and performer of all things audio for over 25 years. I began doing custom sound and broadcast work for the haunted attraction industry in 1993 and continue to do so, around the country, for some really great folks in the business. Some of their haunts are simply amazing.

    Although the majority of my normal broadcast and custom sound work is retail and corporate etc., "Haunters" are indeed my favorite clients! Unlike sterotypical business folks, you're all fun to work with, imaginative and willing to take risks. I admire anyone who puts his or her butt on the line in the entertainment business and truly appreciate all the work and energy it takes to do so professionally!

    I do work for all size haunted attractions and amusement parks and for those with tight budgets, I do have a few generic trax and CDs available at that are truly network quality for a fraction of custom work.
    You can audition various tracks as well and some of the methods to my madness.

    I wish ya'll a great '07 season...

    "Dead End Haunted House"? Good name.
    The Ravens Grin is a dead end haunted house if you keep on driving passed my front door on Carroll St. you will be going heaf-first over a small cliff. My westerly neighbor is the city graveyard, up there on the next hill, 6,400 graves.

    HELLo, newbie here. My name is Tom Powell and I am the webmaster and creator of . I invite you all to take the haunted tour packed with terrifying visuals and chilling sounds. It takes about two hours to make it to the end and of course there are 66 ways to die trying to complete the journey.

    I have so many horrific sights to show you such as the Cathedral of Ghosts, The Dark Woods of the Hell Dogs, Carney Vore's Carnival, The Prehistoric Jungle of the Zombie Beast, Dead Pirate's Pier, The Bed Chamber of Blood, Dorian's Dungeon, The Witches Infested Brewery, and many more creepy depots to make you lose sleep at night. The site also contains a gallery of my dark art, send a horror ecard, and other horror venues.

    Also, if you get stuck in a certain chapter, drop me a post here and I will give you a hint.

    If you own a horror website, feel free to contact me, and I will be glad to post your banner and link on my site.

    Hello everyone. Its been awhile since I posted on the forums so let me refresh and re-introduce myself.

    My name is Travis Magee from Dallas, Texas. 31 years old and a long time haunted house enthusiasts. My goal is to one day start my own haunt, but in the meantime I volunteer alot of my time to my friends haunt called the 13th Street Morgue in Red Oak, TX.

    I am an artist. Ive been drawing since the day I was born. (im pretty sure of it, haha). I went to the Art Institute of Dallas, worked for a couple of design studios and ad agencies, now im pretty much a freelance graphic designer and entrepreneur. I prefer to do my own thing so I can go after the markets that I like. Im not a person who just learned how to use Photoshop who thinks they can create designs for people and expect to get paid for it. First and foremost, I am an artist who just simply uses computer programs as tools. From Graphic Design to digital and traditional Illustration.

    One day I would love to just focus on the Haunt Industry, but until I get enough steady clients I continue to work alot with the music, entertainment, and fashion industries to pay the bills.

    Im just a haunt junky who cant get enough of it. Im thankful for so I can get my fix all year `round.

    Welcome "Mrs. BOO!"
    So you two hope to open something up and unlease that mind-tumor upon the unsuspecting world?
    I did the same many years ago and have fun being open here for house tours almost everynight of the entire year.
    So far the mind is still enjoying all of it, the body faulters alittle sometimes.

    Okay, I am finally getting around to doing this. A detailed explanation of how I got started in the haunt industry can be found elsewhere on these forums, so I will keep this to the basics.

    I am an attorney who is trying to transition into full time dark entertainment -- which is my term for running haunted attractions, performing theatrical ghost hunts and seances, telling ghost stories, and most anything else that combines magic and things that go bump in the night.

    I have been involved in the haunt industry for over 20 years now. While my greatest love is -- and always will be -- haunt acting, I have designed and built haunts, managed attractions for others, and run my own show. I have been involved in both charity and pro haunts.

    I am a partner in the newly formed Lords of Chaos, LLC and we will be putting on our first haunt this year in the vicinity of Portland, Oregon.

    My main haunt interest is using magical illusions in a haunt setting. My non-dark entertainment interest include backpacking, full contact fighting (MMA), writing ghost stories, keeping reptiles (who I really want to work into my shows), and coaching my son's wrestling team.

    Always interested in talking haunts and brainstorming scary things.
