DSC_5999Halloween has become a phenomenon in the United States and around the world, and every year more and more people are opening “darkly themed” Halloween Attractions. Even in the present economic downturn some haunted events are breaking attendance records, while other attractions are going out of business.

This comprehensive and detailed step by step “how-to” session features the “do’s and don’ts” on getting an attraction open, keeping it open and making enough money to survive. The provided information is designed for both a for-profit dark attraction and charity Halloween Event, but even a well-established event will learn from Leonard’s 45 years of professional design and consulting experience.
