    Michigan Farm Gal gong on 5 years of Haunted Trail in Michigan near Traverse City!

    Well I have been a member of this board for years but lurk mostly. My family have been haunting in one form or another for 25+ years so we have fun. I thought I would introduce myself and creep less on this board and help where I can. My family and I do a theatrical based outdoor trail walk and will be adding an indoor barn haunt this year for our 5th anniversary. We do this as a fundraiser but don't think that we take our haunt that way. We train our volunteers to be as professional and haunt savvy as we can. We have people as young as 8th graders that haunt our woods and the guests leave going "those were 8th graders?" We do not do GORE but we rock on SERF...Spooky Enchanting Really-good FEAR.

    I own an organic veggie farm but truth be told-haunting is where my heart is at. I plan on shifting the farm to a fall mecca of fall fun and spooktacular events:-)

    People leave the Ghost Farm of Kingsley-really great reviews and on our 5th anniversary we are ready to take a good leap forward. If you want check us out look at our facebook.com/GhostFarm page.



    I hope this information helps and HI!

    I am a home haunter for about 8 years now, the last 2 have been getting bigger and bigger. I help out at a local haunted house here in Cincinnati, The Dent Schoolhouse. I'm learning alot, so I thought I'd join this forum to learn more and buy some used props for my display. My first Transworld experience was in 2013 and it was amazing! Going again this year to hopefully get a few good props. Any advice, tips, or tricks any fellow haunters could give me would be great. I'll post some of my stuff on here as well.

    Hola!

    Hello everyone! My name is Erik, and currently my family and I do a home haunt. My 10 year plan is to own a small haunt and try to grow from there. I won't be asking anyone for money LOL! Hope you guys are all doing well this season. I am from San Antonio, and we went to Sea World's attraction last night and it was really great compared to some of the other ones I have been to this season. The misdirections were all done very well, and I jumped a few times. Y'all keep living the dream and scare the hell out off people!

    Peace!

    I'm Jason, I'm located in the northeast region in Arkansas. I've mainly helped build and act in haunts for the past 6 years. I'm a contractor by trade. I recently made the jump.and with the help of a few friends I own my own haunt which opens tomorrow night. We are calling it the 870 Spookshow because we couldn't think of a better name and we thought it was such horrible name people will remember it and so far that actually has seemed to work out...

    Looking for backers for my project to build a haunted house

    All my life I have loved horror movies and haunted houses ,and also Halloween. I have always enjoyed going to haunted houses and getting dressed up for Halloween when I was a kid. I'm a big believer in having a hobby that you love doing. For the longest time I have wanted to put together a a haunted house for everyone in my community. Im trying to find people that would be willing to back my project on opening up Flour Bluffs first haunted house for the community. The link is at the bottum of the page so you can look at the project. I also plan on having canned food drives and raising money for the local laguna little league baseball with some of the money that I raise at the haunted house.I have been in contact with a owner of a haunted house that is looking into selling his two haunted house and all his props. I have the location for the haunted house I just need the supplies for run the haunted house. I plan on opening the haunted house to the community on October 18th,19th, 20th,25th,26th,27th,28th,29th,30th,31th, and the 1st of November. We will be open from 7pm to 12pm every night.

    Hey, Hi, and Hello there!

    Hi guys! I've been lurking in the shadows of this forum for a while now and decided it's high time I became an active member!

    My first prosthetic was at age 9, my first haunt was 16 (for charity of course), and my sister's birthday is Nov, 1st because my mother refused to miss Halloween with me even at age 3. I've worked on the design of close to a dozen haunts over the last 8 years, have my own Makeup FX company, and co-own a Haunt Design company that specializes in masks, costumes, props, puppets, foam fabrication, ground plan design, and even whole-haunt design. We attended Transworld as a vendor for the first time this year, had a blast, and look forward to the many awesome trade shows to come!

    I have a degree in Technical Theater, hold Pro cards from Makeup Artist Magazine and a number of cosmetics companies; have trained with the Wolfe Brothers, Alex Hansen, and Temptu Pro (among others); and try to learn something new from every project I undertake.

    Glad to be in the mix!

    Thanks guys & ghouls

    Hey there, Sarge here!

    Hey there everyone!

    Name: Rory/Sarge
    Age:22
    Location: St. Paul, MN
    Haunt: Screamtown- Chaska, MN

    Hey there everyone! This will be my fifth season coming up and Im really excited. I have spent the past 4 seasons out at Terror On The Fox in Green Bay, Wisconsin. It will always be my home haunt. I miss it terribly. Especially riding the train! This year Im at a newer attraction in Chaska called Screamtown. I havent even set foot on the grounds yet, but apparently I will be in the attraction "Meltdown at Sector 666". A bit cheesy, but hey, it is what it is. I have attended MHC once, and look forward to going again this year. Last time I attended was 2012, and I was nominated for one of the top ten scariest characters. That was pretty cool if I do say so myself!

    Anyway, Ill see y'all around the boards.

    Name: Brian D. Jackson, Ed.D.

    Age: 48

    Occupation: Educator (plus, performing as a magician has been an enjoyable sideline for 35 years)

    Location: Ramer, TN (approx. 100 mi. due east of Memphis)

    Haunt name: Derailed

    Website: www.derailedhauntedhouse.com

    FaceBook: Derailed Haunted House (like us, please)


    My business partner, Chris Sweeney, and I are working to develop a new haunted attraction inside a 23,000 sq. ft. building we acquired in Jan. 2013. The building is a two-story, former general store erected in 1906. The property is adjacent to a railroad track; hence, the choice of the name, Derailed. Checkout our backstory at our website, www.derailedhauntedhouse.com. The custom costume for our primary character, Spike, is being created by Kyle Moncrief of Outre_Studios in Jackson GA. Likely, we are not going to meet our initial goal of opening this season. However, we are not beset, we continue to persevere.

    Even though we are in a very rural area, there already exists the culture of attending haunts. For the past several decades, the local Jaycees and Ruritan clubs have operated haunts. Although now largely defunct haunts, their patrons are eager to seek out and attend haunted attractions. We are appreciative to those who have labored long and late hours to create such a dedicated following. We hope to build upon and enrich the tradition through our contributions to haunting.

    We are new to the industry and are learning more than we could have ever imagined! Two area haunts have really served to inspire us to take this giant step. Arx Mortis in Killen, AL and Disturbia in Huntsville, AL allowed us to develop to a deeper appreciation for the art of haunting. Attending the 2013 TransWorld Show and the 2013 MidWest Haunters Convention were both very valuable experiences for us. Being able to visit The Darkness in St. Louis and The Haunted Hoochie near Columbus, OH encouraged us to develop a great experience for our guests. Plus, the tour of the Unit 70 facility opened our eyes to the labor that goes into the development and detailing of quality props and effects. The HauntWorld magazines and online Fright Forum are vital to us staying current within the industry. We are certainly open to any sound advice, suggestions, tips, ideas, and guidance from all the industry veterans. We appreciate the sage wisdom of Allen Hopps, Ben Armstrong, Ray from The Darkness, and Doug Alan of AutopsyProductions. They have helped us immensely. We also appreciate Larry for providing this forum for all of us to continualy interact.
