Halloween and Haunted House Tradeshow was MAJOR Success
Wed, March 23, 2011
The 2011 Halloween and Haunted House tradeshow and convention is over and now haunted houses across the WORLD are renovating and upgrading their haunted houses for the 2011 haunt season. The Transworld show was loaded with new vendors, offering scary costumes, masks, animations, monsters, zombies, special effects and much much more. Transworld estimates that over 6,000 people attend the show in St. Louis, Missouri leaving an overall impact on the St. Louis economy well into the multiple millions of dollars. St. Louis realized what an impact this show was having on the local economy so they hang banners from street lights welcoming the Halloween industry to their city!
Several events from haunted house tours to bowling events, to seminars, demonstrations to even an interactive haunted house was installed on the show floor. The interactive haunted house was a first of its kind, and considering how long was allowed to build the attraction the detail was very impressive and the designers deserve an incredible amount of praise. The interactive haunted house featured props donated from dozens of vendors, from animations, props to wall panels.
The 2011 Halloween show even featured tours through one of America's best haunted houses 'The Darkness' which amazed everyone in attendance with its attention to detail, amazing special effects and overall left an impression on haunters WORLD WIDE. The Lemp Brewery haunted house also opened and nearly 1000 people from around the World toured one of America's most haunted places. Those who attended Lemp were blown away by the pure awesome location and over the top spooky atmospere.
Transworld also announced that they will once again return to St. Louis, Missouri next March 2012. A great time was had by all with special appearances by Linda Blair, academy award winning make up artists, Hollywood producers and directors, and even the Travel Channel was in the house shooting a reality show.

Simply another case where the haunted house industry sticks to together to help each other. The owners of Hauntworld.com have proposed a get together at the location to build a haunted house in ONE WEEKEND! Can a haunted house really be built in one weekend with a team of 40 or 50 haunt owners all pitching in? How would that haunted house turn out. We will follow these developments and report on any dates to help Todd and crew rebuild some of their haunted houses lost to a tragic fire.
