How much is it to enter our items in the NHC competitions
at theHaunters Lair, we didn't see any costs listed?
You didn't see any costs because the Haunters Lair contests
are ALL 100% FREE to enter, simply sign up online and
enter as many as you like. You
can view them all here!
the Convention Show Floor Pass good for only 1 day?
No, the Show floor pass is good for the entire length
of the convention (1, 2 or 3 days depending on how long
the show floor is open). You are only purchasing a pass
for one day, but it allows you the bonus of letting
you attend as many days as you want with the same pass.
Is there an Age requirement
or restriction for the Convention Show Floor?
There are NO Age restrictions to the Convention
Show Floor (Children are invited). However, please keep
in mind this is a Halloween and Horror Show. Therefore,
you will see lots of props and products that are both
very bloody, gory, and disturbing, so we wouldn't recommend
bringing a 4 year old child for example (unless his
name is Chucky). In addition, we aim to run a very professional
Halloween & Haunted House Show, so you will see
some of the most amazing props and products from the
Halloween and Movie industry. We are family friendly,
and thus, we do not have any vendors that focus on adult
oriented materials so everyone is welcome to our convention!
Is there an Age requirement
or restriction for the Costume Ball?
There are NO Age restrictions to the Costume Ball
on Saturday night. However, please keep in mind that
some of the greatest costume designs and makeup artists
in the country will be at this event so you will see
very professional and also disturbing costumes which
might not be appropriate for younger children. You are
welcome to wear costumes of any kind, and any theme,
so dust off those old Halloween outfits! There is a
bar at this event, but the Bartender knows to card those
How are you different from
other shows? I've been to many of these 'celebrity'
shows, they are so crowded and I've seen everyone already,
why should I come to your show!
What makes us different from all the other
Halloween or Horror Celebrity types of shows is that
we are a professional convention center event, not a
hotel show. The rooms and floor of our convention have
very large ceilings (23 feet to 45 feet).... so you
are going to get a chance to see some amazing props
and items that are very large used in professional haunted
houses and dark attractions around the country. Thus,
we are not a celebrity show, and you do not have people
pushing you to buy their wares or get a photo. In addition,
it is a much more spacious environment and thus you
won't be stuck in a crowded hotel space; you will have
plenty of room to walk around and enjoy the show floor.
In addition, the other events are more of a local event...here
we will be bringing and flying in people from around
the country who are experts in the Halloween, Horror
and Haunted House fields to help teach and present to
you. In addition, we are all huge fans of Halloween
and Horror ourselves, so all the live entertainment
on the show floor is free...we are even bringing in
Gothic Illusionists and Magicians from around the country.
Our classes vary from making your own statues or carving
foam, to learning the tricks of acting and even doing
your own makeup. Our goal is a great experience for
everyone and the largest Halloween event on the east
