We are very excited to once again offer haunted attraction owners across the United States the unique opportunity of being part of our book, The Fright Seeker’s Guide to Haunted Attractions …And Other Horrific Things 2018. This book is a fascinating collectors item for Halloween/haunt enthusiasts and also brings awareness to the many various types of haunts (charity, home/yard, commercial, etc…) across the country. Our book is the FIRST and ONLY book available to strictly feature entertainment/Halloween based haunts along with additional horrific info, activities, awesome advertisements and haunted house coupons. The books are sold both online and at haunted attractions as souvenirs (available to haunters in wholesale packages).
We are accepting submissions from all types of haunts (operating in the 2018 season) within the United States. Whether you own a yard/garage haunt or a multi-million dollar attraction, we would like to know all about it and possibly showcase it in our 2018 Fright Seeker’s Guide to Haunted Attractions …And Other Horrific Things.
