2014 MHC Preliminary Bus Tour Info Announced

This week, the Midwest Haunters Convention announced the preliminary bus tour info for their 2014 convention.

From their site:

Thursday Night Bus Tour (June 5, 2014)
The 2014 Midwest Haunters Convention pre-convention bus tour leaves Columbus late morning/early afternoon on Thursday, June 5th on a tour of some amazing Ohio haunts and attractions including a behind-the-scenes visit to Robert Kurtzman’s FX shop Creature Corps and the Guinness Book of World Records holder for the Longest Haunt in the World - The Factory Of Terror! The tour returns late Thursday night to our host hotel in Columbus. Check back often for the latest details on this tour!

Friday Night Bus Tour & After Party (June 6, 2014)
After many years, The Friday Night Midwest Haunt Tour returns to visit the world famous ScareFactory! Explore this massive production facility and see giant monsters, cool effects, fabrication demos and as many as three massive haunted attractions under construction for the 2014 season.  This will be a rare behind-the-scenes tour of the world’s largest manufacturer of animatronics for the haunt industry filled with surprises and terrifyingly cool products that you won’t want to miss!

After the ScareFactory tour, buses roll out to see the ScareAtorium! The ScareAtorium is the ULTIMATE FEAR EXPERIENCE in one of Ohio’s best and largest haunted attractions. The 40,000 square foot venue, located in Columbus, features two attractions; the “Northland Asylum” and “Rip’s 3D Funhouse.” A combination of special effects techniques are used to thrill guests, ranging from highly detailed sets and the latest props to acting techniques and elaborate characters!

Following the ScareAtorium, buses will return to the convention center in time for the Friday Haunt Tour After Party produced by the 13th Floor Haunted House and The House of Torment! If you have ever been to one of their events you know what sort of fun to expect and if you haven’t, be warned!  These guys know how to throw a party!  Check back often for more information on these events and tours. Tickets for the Friday Night Tour and the Friday Night After Party sponsored by the 13th Floor go on sale soon!

I'm starting to get excited for the 2014 convention. It looks like I'll be up for the Friday bus tour and after party along with the convention trade show and Saturday night Masquerade Party (although I would really love to check out Kurtzman's Creature Corps on the Thursday tour). Honestly, I don't think my liver could take anymore than that!

If you were on the fence about attending or you haven't been to the Midwest Haunters Convention yet, do yourself a favor and go. This will be my fourth year attending and it is an absolute blast. Every year we go a little crazier and we have a little more fun. And along with that, we meet more really cool people. It's a great convention that's geared toward the home haunt crowd (and their budgets) and it has a very laid back atmosphere.

See you there!

Is it always held in Columbus? One of these years (when my kid with all her dance-related activities is out of my house) I'll get to go !!

Lisa, Yes, it has been held in Columbus every year, but I heard that there is a scheduling conflict for 2015, so it might be held elsewhere. We'll see.

And HalloweeNut - you know it!! I'll be sure to post photos and a full report once I get back!

I think Jody and I are going to pull the trigger and go this year! I've wanted to go for about three years running and have never made it. Maybe we'll see you guys there.

BTW, I'd still like to come by some time and "pick your brain" about a couple of things. Get some pointers. I've got some BIG plans for this year and I just can't wait for the weather to clear up so I can get started. Email me and we'll schedule a time to talk. jherman312@hotmail.com

Thanks Mike :)

Yep we got our hotel reservation in. Not bad $135 a night for a King at the Hyatt. Have the tickets gone on sale for the conference yet? I can't seem to find anything about that.
