In 2014, many haunted houses will be opening in the Windy City but one stands out as Chicago’s finest. Among a myriad of attractions ranging from small productions to corn mazes to celebrity endorsed installations, 13th Floor Chicago is a leader among all.

Chicago has a rich history of haunted houses and over the past 20 years, some have been major attractions, others have been smaller productions and few have continued to press on through the years. 2014 marks a new chapter for Chicagoland haunted houses and fans. This year, the landscape of haunted houses in Chicago will transform as new organizations and alternative concepts enter the marketplace. The most notable is Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group’s flagship attraction, 13th Floor Haunted House Chicago.

Hauntworld Magazine encourages you to visit each and every haunted house in your city. If you can’t go to all of them, go to as many as you can because each haunted house provides a different experience and has something new to offer. If you’re in Chicago this haunt season and you are looking to get a great scare, Hauntworld Magazine recommends the 13th Floor. In a city that raises the bar for entertainment, 13th Floor fits perfectly as it sets a new benchmark for haunted houses in the Chicago area. Hauntworld Magazine doesn't take its recommendations lightly and in a city like Chicago, with many haunted house options, it’s often difficult to decide. Here are 3 reasons why you should check out the World Famous 13th Floor Haunted House Chicago:
 

3 Reasons Why 13th Floor Chicago Will Be Chicagoland’s Best Haunted House

1. Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group
Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group, is the nation's (and potentially the world's) largest haunted house production, management and promotion company. Already producing six of America’s top haunted houses each year, 13th Floor Chicago will be the seventh major attraction for the growing industry heavyweight. Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group manages this accomplishment by employing 20 of the industry’s top professionals year round and 1,000 people seasonally to execute its singular core mission: produce incredible haunted houses and guest experiences. Their fulltime team of 20 includes: Artists, Craftsmen, Designers, Marketers and Managers with backgrounds ranging from film and television production to commercial construction and banking. When this talented group of minds focus their efforts on a single purpose, they create big budget haunted houses that rival theme parks and movies in production value and scale. While the Windy City is home to a handful of large haunted houses, no other haunted house producer comes within arm's reach of Thirteenth Floor and the scale of its production capabilities. Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group has brought it’s “A” game with this new permanent installation and the producers have called this haunted house, “Our most ambitious and incredible project to date,” which says a lot considering Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group also produces:

House of Torment in Austin, TX
13th Floor Haunted House in Denver, CO
13th Floor Haunted House in Phoenix, AZ
13th Floor Haunted House in San Antonio, TX
Asylum Haunted House in Denver, CO
Fear Farm in Phoenix, AZ

 
 
2. A Product Centric Approach
Haunted houses pride themselves on different things and sometimes seem to get caught up in gimmicks. Some focus on having multiple attractions, "10 at one location for one low price." Some focus on offensive content and the extreme, "Only come if you’re over 18 and be prepared to have your night ruined." Some hope their endorsements are enough to carry them through and some simply focus on one unique element, "Corn is scary and there are acres of corn." Some of these gimmicks may work, others may not, but 13th Floor Chicago’s approach departs from all of the noise. Instead, 13th Floor’s energy and effort is put into being the best at one thing, the product.

The “product” to the 13th Floor is the guest experience and its relationship to its attractions and monsters. It’s the social exercise of getting your friends together, getting your tickets and spending your night visiting an incredible haunted house. You and your friends even have multiple ticket options to choose from including: waiting, you don’t mind waiting for a little while and you hate waiting and want to go in immediately. 13th Floor’s entire guest experience is built around thrilling entertainment and it’s all by design.

At 13th Floor Chicago you are entertained and scared from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave. Monsters and creatures from outofthisworld interact with you while you wait in line. The haunted attractions you experience at 13th Floor Chicago are built on a scale like no other and from a designer’s perspective are, “drop dead gorgeous and awe inspiring.” From the architectural detail on the massive facades to the thoughtful set pieces in every room, it’s easy to tell that the scenic work was executed by veteran set dressers and designers from Hollywood to New York sound stages. Customer’s can see the depth of engineering and design that went into the construction of the massive environments the lighting and sound design is spot on creating a space where the detail of the setting can be appreciated, where the mood is properly set. However, the stars of the show are the performers that interact with and scare you. They reach, grab, slide, vault and drop in with impressive performance sequences and stunts. The scares are innovative, creative, unexpected and the performance style jumps between offthecharts intensity to bits of wellplaced theatrical dialogue that unravel a story throughout your journey. When you are done, you're out of breath, excited, thrilled and terrified. You've had a great time with your friends and you feel like you just experienced not only a good haunted house but a memorable experience.
 


3. Production Value
13th Floor Chicago features 2 attractions that span 30,000 square feet: The Rising and The Dead End District. Each carries a different theme and is anchored by an original Icon Character and large cast of monsters and creatures. Though thematically different, each of the two attractions has one major thing in common: production value, production value and more production value. It’s as if the producers of 13th Floor watched the film Super 8 and took all of the dialogue about production value as scripture. Hauntworld Magazine was able to sit down with Daniel McCullough, one of the partners and producers of 13th Floor Chicago, and talk about production value and how they pulled it off.

HW: This place is pretty incredible. Some of these sets are the largest I’ve seen in a haunted house. Tell me about how you approached this design.
DM: I knew that coming into Chicago we’d need to do something over the top. Back in Texas, where I’m from, the saying around the shop is, “Go big or go home.” In Chicago, I think we took that to the extreme in our design and in our execution. I love building massive sets with incredible scenic work. I think at this point in my career, it’s expected of me.

HW: How were you able to acquire such a variety of set pieces and in such large quantity?
DM: There were three major contributing factors. First, doing a series of top notch medical scenes was high on my priority list. My Senior Project Manager found a guy selling an old decrepit hospital. We made a deal and for about a week after that, our team went on a horror version of American Pickers on steroids. We filled up several box trucks with lots of amazing pieces. Second, a similar situation occurred in Las Vegas with Eli Roth’s Goretorium. It was rumored to be a $10 million dollar build out, but who really knows. The year round concept didn’t work for them and when they closed down they reached out to us. We made a deal and the following week we filled up seven tractor trailers with more amazing pieces. Third, our Managing Partner also brought some really great stuff to the table including multiple facades and set pieces that had recently been used on Broadway in some big productions. All of these acquisitions really enabled us to create our best haunted houses ever.

HW: An abandoned hospital, a multimillion dollar production in Las Vegas, Broadway…that’s impressive. How hard was it to incorporate those elements into your design?
DM: It really wasn’t hard and the design evolved along the way to incorporate them. In fact, it really just enabled my production team to focus more time on doing their best scenic work to date instead of spending countless hours searching items like these out. I think because we were able to make these incredible acquisitions, we were given the opportunity to do all of the over the top set construction you see around us.

HW: What advice would you give other haunted house owners on creating production value like this in their attractions?
DM: You need two things: people and money. The people that work for me are the most important asset in our company. If you want your haunted house to look like this, go find some people to work with that used to work in Hollywood or New York on major motion pictures. If you want to execute a project like this, go find some of the top folks in the industry and partner with them or work with them. Then be prepared to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars and then some more after that.

HW: Anything else you’d like to add about the show?
DM: I’ve been doing this for 12 years and have built some of the top haunted houses in the country. This is the most impressive haunted house my team and I have ever built and I can’t wait for the people of Chicago to experience it this fall.

HW: What's in store for the future?
DM: In regards to our future, my business partners and I share a common vision. To quote Walt Disney, “Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious...and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”

Five Tips for Haunting Your House this Halloween
 
 (StatePoint) Halloween trails only behind Christmas when it comes to spending on decorations. Americans spent an estimated $6.9 billion on Halloween in 2013, according to the National Retail Federation.
 
You can make more of your Halloween spending with a few spooky tips. Larry Kirchner, operator of the world’s number-one rated haunted house, “The Darkness” in St. Louis, Missouri and owner of Hauntworld.com -- a resource for building haunts, and a national directory of haunted houses, corn mazes, hayrides, and pumpkin patches -- offers advice from his 25 years of experience building professional Halloween attractions.
 
Spooky Façade
Give your home’s façade the abandoned, dusty look by spinning cobwebs and creepifying doors and windows. Hang aged and shredded curtains and add lights to each window. Change outdoor lights with flicker bulbs. Add spooky sounds for atmosphere. Lastly, you can purchase affordable computer graphic effects from HauntedHouseSupplies.com and with a TV pressed into your window, add anything from ghosts to werewolves to ghouls to your haunt.
 
Cemetery
Let the leaves collect for a few weeks in your yard. Add a gothic fence and a few zombies popping up through the ground. Add jute material or aged cheesecloth to your fence. Adding dead bodies under trees or creepy birds helps set the scene. Make gravestones by using a hot knife to carve foam into shapes, and even add an epitaph. To give the tombstone a real stone look, coat in plaster or lightweight concrete. Two simple doll rods driven into the ground can hold the tombstone in place. For a coffin, nail together 1x6 and 2x2 pine boards. For the extra effect, add mulch in front of the tombstones or use paving bricks in the shape of a grave filled with mulch.
 
Spooky Maze
Empty the garage and set up walls to create two to three scary scenes. If your garage isn’t big enough, start the attraction inside and have it exit into the backyard graveyard. Start by sketching a design. You can build simple walls from plywood or drywall. For the old rotting look, cut odd shapes into the walls and screw in thin slats of wood behind the cut out holes. For best results, cake on plaster between the slats, then use raised wallpaper for the rest. Paint the entire wall one color and add some watered down black paint for an aged look.
 
Eerie Effects
Spooky sounds, special effects and lighting make all the difference. Play a spooky soundtrack from a movie or find music online. Buy a couple of cheap skeleton speakers, available online for as low as $10. For home haunters on a budget, air cannons or any loud noise are great for scares. Create special effects with fog machines and air compressors. Finally, dress up in your spookiest costume and make your guests scream for candy!
 
To prepare for next year, stock up on deeply discounted props the day after Halloween. For more inspiration on Halloween or haunted houses, visit www.HauntWorld.com.
 
This year, go beyond the basics and give your neighborhood a real scare!

Universal Studios will add several new mazes for the 2014 season including a maze based on the new Purge Movie, Walking Dead TV Show, even a maze based on Face Off TV Show.  Other mazes include From Dusk to Dawn and Alien vs Predator which sounds odd considering its more science fiction rather than horror!  Universal is also releasing a new movie this October based on the origins of Dracula so as expected there will be a maze based on that movie as well.  Universal has really set the bar for Halloween attractions as each Halloween season you can expect something new and different.

Many haunted houses across the country are also planning new bigger and scarier haunts.  Although Universal has an event that is on a level almost no one in the amusement industry can achieve believe it or not many of the independent haunts such as Netherworld, The Darkness, 13th Gate and many others are more sophisticated, more elaborate, and without a doubt scarier.  With that being said the haunt industry as a whole is clearly set on path of bigger, better, scarier, more interactive, and never ending changes which create a new bar which all haunts aspire to achieve.

Remember Hauntworld is the best place to find all haunted houses near you including hayrides, corn mazes, haunted attractions and even real haunted houses.  Stay Tuned to Hauntworld for all the latest within the haunted house industry.

From a backyard haunted house to tackling one of the toughest markets in the country, The Fear Experience has had to evolve to stay ahead.  Their team has brought a new standard of quality to the Cleveland market which has captured people’s attention.  In 2011, the attraction was voted best in Cleveland, in 2013 it was named “Northeast Ohio’s Premier Haunted House” and in 2014, the haunt set the stage for an internationally recognized music video.  

The Fear Experience began years ago when the owners were just 12 and 15.  Owners Max Simon and Nick Francis (now 19 and 22) are cousins and have been building haunted houses since they were kids.  They first worked together in 2007 when Simon helped Francis operate an extensive haunted house Francis had constructed in his garage & backyard.  They both had a passion for all things haunted and combined they became unstoppable.
 
Back then, the duo decided to build a massive home haunt and enter a national competition hosted by Good Morning America. They began building in the summer of 2008, and by fall they were putting the finishing touches on an elaborate 8,000 square foot attraction in Francis’s backyard.  “The haunt took up my entire yard; 7 years later the grass still hasn’t grown back,” says Francis.  “We spent days researching our favorite horror movies and haunted houses and tried to incorporate some of the ideas we liked.  The end result left our families amazed by the terror we created.  Nobody believed we could build something that impressive.”  

They hired a professional videographer to produce the video that would be submitted to Good Morning America for the haunted house competition.  “Our video received the most votes nationally but didn’t manage to win. We found out on Halloween and were incredibly disappointed,” says Simon. “It seemed like all our hard work was for nothing - that is until we opened our doors to the public later that night.”

In just three hours of operation, over 500 people came to their haunt.  Not bad considering it was in a residential neighborhood and they had no advertising.  At 10 pm, the police showed up and shut them down, but by then Francis and Simon knew they were onto something.  The two saw endless opportunity ahead.  Of course, they couldn’t keep running the haunt in Francis’s backyard, so that night the young entrepreneurs decided they would open a commercial attraction the next year.

Fast forward to present day and their commercial haunted house attraction, The Fear Experience, has taken the Cleveland market by storm. “It hasn’t been easy; Cleveland is competitive. Sometimes it seems there’s a haunted house around every corner and some have been around for over 20 years,” says Simon.  “But for us, the competition acts as a constant stimulus.”  
 

Francis adds, “We believe the only way to keep haunted house customers coming is to put on the best, scariest and most entertaining show in the market, and that is our exact focus all day, every day at The Fear Experience.”  Their dedication to excellence in haunting is unwavering.

The Fear Experience is located in a 90,000 square foot, retail location about half a mile from one of the biggest interstates in Cleveland.  The entire event is indoors, protecting its guests from Cleveland’s cold and rainy fall climate. Covered waiting has been a key differentiator in a market where most haunts are outdoors.  

The Fear Experience haunted house didn’t start off in such a great spot, however.  For the first few years the attraction jumped around to different temporary locations and the sets weren’t quite on par with what Simon and Francis wanted.  Simon commented, “We originally didn’t have the time, money or skills to build the kind of sets our customers enjoy today, but we always made sure our customers had a great time.  Instead, we crafted as many startles as we could and focused on making the show scary and entertaining. We knew we had a long way to go to achieve our goal… being the best haunt in the Cleveland market.”

A stroke of serendipity came in 2011 when Rick Thomas, member of internationally renowned band Mushroomhead, guest acted at The Fear Experience.  Thomas saw potential, “I could tell they were ready to take this haunt to the next level, and I knew I could bring the level of quality they needed.”  By this time, Thomas had been designing and building haunted houses for more than two decades.  Over the years he had acquired a lot of experience in set design and show production that would become an essential aspect of The Fear Experience’s rapid development.  Haunted houses have always been one of Thomas’s greatest passions along with music.  When he’s not touring around the world with Mushroomhead, he’s working day and night at The Fear Experience.  Thomas credits his love for building and designing haunted houses as his motivation to constantly make improvements to the attractions.  

With the addition of Thomas as lead scenic designer, the team brought a level of quality and realism that hasn’t been seen before in the Cleveland market.  The haunts feature large, grand scenes and realistic, horrifying environments.  The latest addition is a massive mausoleum style entrance that customers actually walk through to reach the box office.  Francis described the thought process around the project, “We wanted to build an entrance that would amaze our customers the second they walked in the door.  Now you’re not just waiting in line to buy a ticket, you’re walking through something you’ve never experienced before.  It’s probably one of the coolest sets we’ve built to date.”  
 

There’s another very practical reason for the new entrance.  Haunted houses have gotten expensive; it can easily cost $100 for a family of five.  Francis and Simon wanted to assure their customers, before they paid, that they made a great choice by coming to The Fear Experience.  The best way they could think to do that was to build an interactive scene right in the front door.  

The incredible new sets have opened doors to amazing opportunities.  Most recently, the band Mushroomhead chose to film their latest music video entirely at The Fear Experience.  The band thought the haunt would be the perfect place to shoot the music video for one of the album’s top tracks, Qwerty.  Mushroomhead’s new album, The Righteous and The Butterfly reached #1 on the Hard Rock chart and made the Billboard Top 20.  “We were really honored to have such a recognized and loved band choose our haunt to shoot this video.  It turned out amazing, we were blown away by the end result” says Francis.

Today, The Fear Experience features four haunted houses under one roof.  Each attraction has its own unique theme, but they are all tied together by one riveting, overarching concept.  The attractions reside in the city of Centralia, based off a real city in Pennsylvania that has a tragic and gripping past.  Centralia was once home to the largest coal mines in the United States but is now a ghost town.  In 1962, a few local residents accidentally started a fire in one of the mines and it’s been burning non-stop ever since.  The rampant fire has made the baron city uninhabitable and destroyed much of its infrastructure.  Centralia has also been the inspiration for a number of famous horror movies including Silent Hill.  

The latest addition to The Fear Experience, The Centralia County Fair, debuted in 2013 and was a crowd favorite.  The first half of this haunted attraction is designed like an outdoor fair.  It features a huge destroyed midway, a creepy back alley and rotten food truck.  The guests are then chased through a giant clown’s mouth into the circus section.  Although it has its fair share of clowns, the team at The Fear Experience wanted to do something more unique.  Their idea was to create a freak show and zoo that houses all of the circus’ sideshows.  All of the actors in this section are elevated above the customers’ heads, creating a very intimidating effect.  “The finished scenes terrify guests,” says Thomas Thomas “We designed each room with the actor in mind.  Actors can climb and jump around the rooms so quickly that people don’t know where a creature might pop out from next.”

When the team isn’t working on building new haunted house attractions, they’re working on marketing.  They want their marketing pieces to identify The Fear Experience as the go-to haunt in Cleveland.  Their first move was to hire one of the top horror photographers in the area, Blind 7 Photography also known as the “Godfather of Dark Glamour” to shoot their characters.  Simon commented, “We wanted to use real photos on all of our promotional pieces; we felt that type of realism would capture people’s attention.”  Another big step was their website, www.TheFearExperience.com.  The site was designed to be simple and easy to navigate with all the most relevant information right at your fingertips.  The site is also very mobile friendly. “We saw that about 50% of our traffic was coming from mobile devices and we knew our site needed to be just as easy to use from a phone” says Francis.  
 

Their website is not their only online presence.  The Fear Experience Facebook page has over 61,000 fans.  “That’s more than any other haunt in our market!” says Francis who manages the page. “I try to post and interact with fans daily.”  He strives to use Facebook to build real relationships with customers so that when haunt season rolls around, they know exactly which attraction they’re going to.  

Simon, Francis, and Thomas expect a bright future for The Fear Experience.  The three are dedicated to improving the show every year through additions, scenic development and constant innovation.  New, creative ideas fuel the changes made from year to year.  They want to provide each haunt guest with an incredible experience that they can’t get at any other Cleveland haunt or haunted house nationwide.  Their goal is for each guest to leave remembering at least a few very concrete things that scared or amazed them.  Francis and Simon closed by saying, “We will continue to bring true quality and the highest level production value to the Cleveland market.  Cleveland is a great town and deserves the best haunted houses in the world, and we want The Fear Experience to lead the charge.”
