The Darkness Haunted House Tours during Transworld’s HAA Show return March 20-23, 2014



The Darkness Haunted House Tours during Transworld’s Halloween and Attractions Show are coming again on March 20-23, 2014 in St Louis, Missouri. The Darkness has been featuring tours during the HAA Show the past several years showcasing unbelievable set design, special fx, behind-the-scenes tours, and much more. Every year, The Darkness haunted house is renovated between the end of the previous Halloween season and the opening of Transworld’s HAA tradeshow. Over the past five years, The Darkness is said to have spent over 2 million dollars renovating their haunted house for the industry tradeshow attendees. In 2014, they will attempt their most daring renovation yet as they create several new FX and animations that directly interact with customers.


The 2014 renovation will include several completely new rooms inside The Darkness, upgrades in Terror Visions 3D, and feature many new animations from companies like Unit 70, Gore Galore, and custom FX from Halloween Productions. Every animation and special FX created for The 2014 Darkness haunt tour has never been seen before. Two notable highlights on the tour will include a giant Venus Flytrap that will swallow guests whole PLUS a room where a massive saw will cut through the entire roof of a scene! Are you ready for the biggest haunt tour ever produced?
