    How CalHauntS Created Midsummer Estates

    How CalHauntS Created Midsummer Estates

    We’ll learn about how CalHaunts created “Midsummer Estates,” the immersive entryway experience for this year’s Hall of Shadows at Midsummer Scream. Midsummer Scream stands out from other conventions because of its Hall of Shadows. The ‘Hall of Shadows’ is where local haunts set up walkthrough experiences to preview the upcoming Halloween Season. This year, CalHauntS created the entry portal into the Hall of Shadows from the show floor. This year’s entry was called “Midsummer Estates” and featured a small neighborhood with 8 homes decorated for the community’s annual Halloween Festival. Today we’ll hear about the process and learn more about each home from member Kate Thien. Subscribe to all our offerings: https://linktr.ee/hauntedattractionnetwork

My One Stop Haunt Podcast Download

Haunted Attractions Network is going it right by incorporating many of the other haunt and scare industry podcasts as partners. I love being able to grab my favorites from them: HaunTopic, Marketing Mondays, Haunting the Globe, Scare Track, and Frequent Fear. Their marketing segment is wonderful for those of us interested in entrepreneurship within the industry. The production quality is great as well!
