2021 Haunt Industry Survey

There are a lot of misconceptions about the Haunt Industry. 

It’s run by big business. 

Haunters only work in October. 

No one goes to haunted houses anymore. 

We just had our biggest year ever, so we know that last one isn’t true. But as we were looking for data to better understand trends in our own community, we realized that there isn’t a reliable source of recent research about the Haunt Industry.

So, we decided to make one ourselves! HauntPay has been your source for scary simple ticketing & payments for the past eight years. One of our biggest goals has always been to help others in the Haunt Industry grow their businesses. That starts with understanding the opportunities, threats, and trends that haunters face.
