Go behind the screams of haunted house industry

A much-oversized spider lines the path of the Haunted Mansion.

A horribly oversized spider lines the path of a haunted mansion.

Haunt owners nationwide work day and night with the end goal to make you scream. In fact, most haunted house owners work on their attractions year-round. Haunted house owners attend a full schedule of industry events throughout the year including trade shows, conventions and learning seminars. Larry Kirchner, founder and president of HauntWorld, gave us a behind-the-screams glimpse into the industry.
