About this Episode

Rejoice Haunt Weekly lovers it is time for our fourth news episode as we get you caught up on all of the things going on in the haunted attraction industry. 

While it's true that the ides of march (or close to it) is far from peak season for haunt news, there is still a great deal going on including the announcement of a brand-new year-round Walking Dead-themed attraction opening this summer, more news surrounding The Darkness and its battles with the city of St. Louis and we have a bunch of Room Escape openings, proving just how fast that industry is growing.
We also have an update on all of the ongoing and upcoming conferences as well as a news article about haunted attractions based on real-life serial killers and a video game that lets you open up a real haunted attraction (where you get to kill your customers).
All in all, this is a bustling episode and we're happy to take you along for the ride!
