Get Ready for Halloween with The Haunted Attraction Association

Comment Off 103 Views


Why HAA?                   With the growing popularity in visiting haunted attractions in the past 25 years, the industry is now approximately $300 million in size with an estimated 2,500 haunted attractions worldwide that entertain millions and employ tens of thousands.  To align haunted attractions and serve as the voice of the haunted attraction industry, the Haunted Attraction Association (HAA), was formed.  It is the only official association in the haunt industry.



Mission:                       To promote a network of haunted attractions including haunted houses, haunted hayrides, scream parks, mega-haunted attractions, Halloween festivals, haunted outdoor trails, corn mazes and amusement park Halloween events.



Programs:                    The worldwide network of members exchange ideas, information, experiences and concerns via educational seminars, conferences, exclusive networking events, message boards, tradeshows, newsletters, magazines and more.  The association also advises the industry on haunt safety standards to protect customers.  HAA offers Certified Haunted Attraction Operator Seminar (C.H.A.O.S.) safety classes that provide a certification to establish haunted attractions as a safe.



Developments:             Gone are the days of black walls, masks and plastic knives.  Each year haunted attraction owners and operators spend millions of dollars on state-of-the-art special effects and audio animatronic creatures, Hollywood-quality makeup and masks, costumes, lighting gear, sound equipment and more.  Owners and operators are also influenced by video games and invest year-round in research, consulting experts and psychologists on how to create the best immersive, interactive experience.



Company:                    Based in Winnetka, Ill., HAA was formed in 2010 by a merger of the International Association of Haunted Attractions founded in 1998 and the Haunted House Association founded in 2009.
