Haunted House Industry Financials
The haunted attraction industry generates between 300 and 500 million dollars in ticket sales. This figure would include most major theme parks that operate a haunted event. The haunted attraction industry would generate roughly 300 million dollars in revenue and the amusement park industry another 150 to 200 million dollars. The industry of haunting supports hundreds of other businesses across America from vendors that supply haunted house effects, props, costumes, masks, animations and more. Additionally, haunted houses spend tens of millions of dollars on building supplies, advertisement, insurance and much more. We estimate that the haunted house industry solely drives the popularity of Halloween and Halloween retail through the spending of roughly 85 million dollars on advertisement of events.
Haunted House Safety
Haunted Houses and attractions are EXTREMELY safe due to tough safety and fire codes they must all now live by. Most haunted houses inside a building are required to have a sprinkler system, early warning smoke or heat detectors which will alert the fire department, emergency lights, fire proofing of all materials inside the attractions, industrial electric applications, easy access doors throughout the attraction, panic hardware exit doors, multiple fire extinguishers, panic systems, and much more. Most haunts now must also be ADA compliant and have no trap doors or items on the floor that could cause trips and falls. Our members work with local and state officials to make sure that our attractions are up to code and safe for our guests.
Over 80% of all haunted attractions across America are operated by a charity or help to benefit a charity of some kind. The haunted house industry helps to raise tens of millions of dollars for charities nationwide. Many fire departments or church groups produce haunted attractions nationwide. Haunts have worked with major charities like Boys and Girls Club and Children's Miracle Network to everything in between.
In 2010, many of our members teamed up with the TRUTH campaign to help push their message and hosted their street team on-location at their attractions.
