FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., Oct. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Many believe that they have been to the "Wedding From Hell." But only those who have been to ceremonies like this at America Haunts attractions can say that the fear they experienced is exactly what they wanted.
Members of America Haunts, an association of elite haunted house attractions that delivers fear-based entertainment to more than a million thrill-seekers each Halloween season, do more than simply scare the pants off their customers on a nightly basis. Many host annual special events ranging from weddings to themed conventions to team building exercises for businesses.
"Scaring people nightly is a lot of fun, but to keep things interesting America Haunts members are always coming up with ways to provide our visitors with new experiences," said America Haunts Board member, which hosts weddings year round at the Edge of Hell Haunted House in Kansas City, Mo.
In addition to weddings, which also are hosted annually at the Erebus Haunted Attraction in Pontiac, Mich., and Headless Horseman Hayride and Haunted Attraction in Ulster Park, NY, other events seen at America Haunts attractions include annual themed conventions. Netherworld in Atlanta recently sponsored Dragon Con, a massive sci-fi convention held over Labor Day Weekend, while 13th Floor in Denver continued its annual tradition of scaring up the group from HearseCon, a national gathering of hearse owners featuring the largest hearse car show earlier this summer.
America Haunts attractions also have become hot tickets for businesses to entertain employees and promote team building. Spookywoods in High Point, NC, takes visitors on its Off Road Segway PT X2 and Zip Line courses. In Philadelphia, The Bates Motel offers corporate picnics and bonfires to such companies as U.S. Airways and Smith Kline. The ScareHouse in Pittsburgh provides an exclusive suite and "Behind the Screams" tours for groups and businesses.
