Tips to Build Your Own Haunted House

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!

A Corn Maze and pumpkin patch farm has made national news by creating a dedication to retiring New York Yankee Superstar Derek Jeter.  The farm located just outside of New York City created the Derek Jeter maze complete with his number.  VonThun Farms of South Brunswick, New Jersey corn maze features two different paths you can take through the Jeter maze. The first is shorter, and includes an anti-bullying message from Spookley the pumpkin.

Prices range from 8 to 11 dollars per person.  Remember Hauntworld is the biggest online directory to help you find corn mazes!  We feature over 500 pumpkin patches, pick your own pumpkins, hayrides and corn mazes on our directory.  I'm sure the Derek Jeter maze will be a big HIT!  Get it BIG HIT!  LOL   We here at Hauntworld.com really appreciate Halloween events trying to get PR for their event especially when done in a very positive way... KUDOS to Vanthun Farms!

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.
