We are thrilled to announce that the Thursday Night Kick-Off Tour for HAuNTcon 2012 will be Fright Farm. Now in its 23rd year, Fright Farm has been a Pittsburgh Halloween tradition for over two decades, growing in size and detail every year since its inception. Fright Farm is now the largest multi-element Halloween event in Western Pennsylvania. For this not to be missed tour on the HAuNTcon schedule of events the massive Haunted Mansion will be available for touring by attendees.

The Haunted Mansion, where the real nightmare begins – Expect the unexpected in the Haunted Mansion, which almost doubled in size for 2011. The path winds in and out of the large multi-story building and grounds. With state-of-the-art special effects, custom digital soundtracks, computerized lighting and talented actors the Haunted Mansion is a horrific experience unlike any other.

HAuNTcon is proud to announce a new set of classes at this year’s event. In the past, HAuNTcon has offered sessions called “Make-n-Takes,” where attendees pay a materials fee and are instructed how to turn those materials into a haunted prop of some kind. Our new “Hands-On Workshops” teach attendees a technique that they can then use on larger projects when they get back to their haunts.
The classes have always sold out, but we have decided that while “Make-n-Take” is a cute name, it does not accurately represent the technique-teaching aspect of the sessions. With that in mind, we have changed the name of this educational thread to “Hands-On Workshops.” We are also moving the location of these sessions to a designated area on the show floor to provide attendees a chance to view the classes in session, and to give our exhibiting companies a chance to teach some of the classes. Attendees will still get to take their creations home with them, but the classes will be more advanced and may take a longer time frame to complete. As before, there will be a fee for each workshop to cover materials, and seating is limited.
Each year that Haunters attend HAuNTcon, they get better and better at what they do, and have asked for more and more advanced classes. The goal of this change is to raise the bar on the old “Make-n-Take” sessions and transform them from the home haunt level to a professional haunt technique learning session.
Stay tuned as we roll out the 2012 HAuNTcon “Hands-On Workshop” schedule. We look forward to seeing you in several of these advanced classes.

Join us Sunday, May 6, 2012 at the Monroeville Convention Center in Monroeville, PA for the annual “Cool Ghoul Hearse and Parade-Car Show” presented in conjunction with the Haunted Attraction National Tradeshow and Conference (HAuNTcon).
If you are driving to HAuNTcon, make plans to bring your hearse or haunt promotional parade-car and be a part of one of the most unique haunt vehicle shows of the year.
All funeral cars are welcome: sprinkled with creepiness, ragged and rusty or spit-polished to perfection…we dig’em all.
But just because you don’t have a hearse, doesn’t mean you can’t participate. Bring us your stretch limos, your badass buses, tricked out two wheelers or your mom’s shrink-wrapped mini-van and display them with pride.
Show hours are from 11am – 3pm on Sunday May 6, 2012. Registration for the Annual Cool Ghoul Hearse and Parade-Car Show is only $10.00 per vehicle and includes two free one-day passes to HAuNTcon for Sunday.
