Take the 2022 Haunt Industry Survey

We recently published our 2022 survey, and we need haunters like you to help make your voice heard. 

What is the Haunt Industry Survey?

We created HauntPay’s annual Haunt Industry Survey because we saw a need for more up-to-date data about what’s happening in our community. One of our team members was trying to do some research on the state of the haunt industry, and 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 nine 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.

Thanks to all of you, there were TONS of insights into the current state of our industry in the 2021 Haunt Industry Report. You can download the entire report FREE by clicking the button below. But if you’re in a hurry, here are a few facts from last year’s report:

  • Staffing and marketing represent two of the biggest challenges facing haunt owners. 
  • More than two-thirds of haunts are affiliated with a nonprofit organization, either through direct ownership or proceeds donated. 
  • 60% of haunts employ between 26 and 100 employees during the season. 

A few more answers you’ll find:

  • How do haunts charge for entry? (all-inclusive admission or pay-per-attraction)
  • How much are they charging for admission?
  • What percentage of haunts have eliminated on-site sales and gone online-only?
