About this Episode

Backstory. Not every haunt has one, not every haunt needs one, but if you're looking for a great, free way to improve your customer's experience and your marketing, it's a great place to start.
However, not all backstories are created equal and even great backstories can be implemented poorly. So this raises the question: What makes a great backstory for a haunted attraction?
We attempt to answer that question and many more in this episode as we take a look at the writing behind the haunted attraction and how you can write a backstory that drastically improves your haunt and gives your fans something new to talk about. 
This week's episode includes:
