The Reason why Michigan is the Haunt Capital in the world!

Haunted Attractions have been in the state of Michigan since the beginning of haunted houses. Especially in the Downriver area their were large haunts and small local haunts all across the downriver area and pretty much the lower part of the state! Now the reason why Michigan can be called the Haunt Capital of the world is pretty easy to explain.
In Michigan their are hundreds of haunts all over the state. Most haunted houses in one state. But we have such good haunts around here. Too many to count but we do have a lot. Now are haunts are not rated the scariest in the world but that dose not matter. Haunted Houses here are awesome we got small haunts,large haunts,gory haunts. Hell we even got a haunted house that's in the book of world records for the most largest haunted house ever (Erebus haunted house in Pontiac) Their are so many great haunts here that their is a newspaper made just for haunted houses in Michigan.

But anyways if you go to any other state and go too their haunted attractions they properly can't compete with our haunted houses. People here in Michigan love being scared or scaring other's and you can tell that by the way everyone gets excited every October because it's time to be scared by one of our great haunts here.

Even though were having problems in Detroit and many other cites in Michigan. We can still re lie on our haunted attractions too be their to scare the CRAP OUT OF YOU!

So this week article is......

Haunted Attractions Then & Now!

Haunted Attractions Then: back in the 60's and the 70's haunted houses were very short and cheaply made. Almost all the scenes were set up in the dark. Their was no expensive props. Most of the props were homemade by the owners of the haunt. Haunted houses were really cheap ticket price back then. Part of the reason was their was not a lot of space. So it was not that long. But they still did the job for scaring people. Haunted houses back then started old school haunts! Old school haunts are haunts that were more dependent on the actors scaring the visitors not the props.

Haunted Attractions Now: Now a days haunts are much larger and gorier. The props are a lot better but not as cheap. Haunted attractions owners can spend thousands of dollars for props. But let me tell you these props are a really realistic. Also they have props that are like robots. Which now a days haunts use that kind of props that are more realistic. But still haunts still use the old school style of scaring people. Now their are also haunted houses and haunted attractions every were you go in the untied states. Also haunting is become a million dollar industry with high tech props and gory scenes.

We hope you enjoyed our article.

History of Haunted Attractions!

Hello All,
Last week we started our new segment in the club called Haunted History Month. During Haunted History Month we tell the history of anything horror. Last Week did the History of Halloween go to to read it
But this week we are doing our favorite article......

The History of Haunted Attractions
Well haunted attractions were basically a garage type of a deal were you would have fake props and cheesy scenes. The garage type haunts were not as long as a haunted house you will find today. But it was mostly to scare people for the fun of it not for the profit type deal like you will find today. Now from the garage type of haunts it got more real when Jaycees (Junior Chamber International) started making more haunted houses that were much longer the the garage type haunts! Now Jaycees haunts were run by volunteers. But they did start charging people to get in their haunted attractions! Now Jaycees was the founder of making a profit for scaring people for fun. Which will flip the haunt world up side down. Now a days haunts are much more better then it was back in the day. Haunted attractions have gotten a lot larger and props were a lot better now. We got haunts that are 4 stories tall.

Haunted attractions in the Untied States scare about 12,000,000 people a year! Also their are still a large amount of garage type haunts and Jaycees haunted houses all over the Untied States

We hope you enjoyed the History of Haunted Attractions

The History of Halloween:
Halloween gets it start by Celtic festival known as Samhain. The celebration of Samhain is at the end of the harvest Season. Its also known as the Celtic-New year. The festival was calibrated on October 31st. The Celts believed that October 31st was the boundary the living and the deceased dissolved and the dead became dangerous for the living by causing problems like sickness or damaged crops. The festivals would include having bonfires into which the bones of slaughtered livestock were thrown in. Costumes and masks were worn to attempt to copy evil spirits.
On Halloween or All Hollows Eve Celtics would but a skeleton in front of their window still to represent the departed. Lanterns were in northern Europe were first carved from a turnip or rutabaga.

Halloween Now:
Well Halloween is most cases is not a festival but a holiday in most country's. Now a days kids or some adults go out Trick or Treating for candy every October 31st. Halloween is one of the largest holidays next to Christmas. During the month of October Haunted houses going on and costumes and Halloween props being sold trough out the country
