Each year the Industry gathers to network, get new ideas and purchase products. This show is a MUST ATTEND event if you are thinking about opening or currently operate a haunted attraction, corn maze, farm, pumpkin patch, paintball field, family fun center, amusement park, zoo, aquarium, Halloween retail store or anything Halloween-related. We have everything you need to make your Halloween season a success. Each year, the show continues to grow with NEW EXHIBITORS, NEW PRODUCTS and more buyers on the show floor. The Halloween & Attractions Show combines the products and knowledge of hundreds of exhibitors that you need to see this March!

The Halloween & Attractions Show now features Escape Room City, a segment of the show that caters to the room escape, virtual reality and adventure game industries. Whether you own/operate a successful escape room, are considering exploring this booming industry or thinking about adding an escape room attraction to your haunted house or event, Escape Room City's vendors and seminars will appeal to both seasoned owners, novices and all those in between.
