I picked up on that too, thought it was kinda funny.

I've seen both and already got the other two set to Tivo. I wonder just how many people watching these shows AREN'T haunt fanatics like the people around here. Either way, I'm sure enjoying them. They should make it a weekly series! haha

I caught part II last night. Very cool! This is the kind of exposure that gets people excited and motivated about going out and checking out their local haunted attractions! I'll most likely miss part III tonight. I'll be in Joplin working on Raycliff Manor and the Carriage House attractions in preparation for our 3 night run starting tomorrow night. I hope everyone sees a huge surge in attendance this weekend! Good luck to you all!

i saw part two last night with a friend of mine. her and i agree the scare-o-vision has to go. I mean you show the scare like 3-4 times and then you slow it ddown. i get it they were scared! ha ha other then that it's a nice show.

I agree with everyone here and am seeing one consistent comment (American Haunts on DVD.) I don't see any signs of this on Travel Channels website or any word of it in the works..

How can we make a push for it to happen? A petition, flood of emails to the site..etc? With there being so many haunters out there and haunt enthusiasts I would assume there would be a market for these on DVD??

I watched em!!! So excited about 3rd tonight...and I too caught the "Erebus" thing...haha

I personally have copied all of my haunt shows on DVD (america haunts 1-2, americas scariest haunted attractions 1-2, halloween tech, etc. Pretty much anything that has to do with Haunts!!!!

Set the DVR for the 3rd one tonight and I'm burning my copies for my own archive.

I also finally caught the History Channels "Halloween Tech" from last year.

freak 'n' stein,

Would you care to share? I am not able to DVR them, Our DVR is at the haunt to ensure that what unfortunately has happened to Larry and his haunts don't happen to ours.

My DVR is set to HIGH this weekend. Everything I can get my hands on Halloween is being recorded. I just need to finish off the collection. Right now I have America's Scariest Haunted Attractions (1,2,3) and American Haunts (1,2). Just need 3,4

WOW...fist post, but the Penhurst place in Penn will be amazing and huge. There will need to be a lot of work done, but holy crap...there won't need to be that much done, just good actors and good control of the crowds through certain rooms. I would love to see any updates on this if there is any.

American Haunts III was great!! Pennhurst Institute of Fear is gonna be AMAZING!!! I have to say that Randy Bates is ONE lucky man!! I'd be too scared to every build an attraction there...haha...

If you hated scream-o-vision BEFORE...

They used it wayyyy too much in this episode!! I think if you compiled them all it would easily be a fourth of the episode...hahaha...everyone who was featured: AWESOME WORK!!!!

All of America Haunts 1,2,3, and 4 will be showing Saturday morning. I'm gonna tape them. Starting at 10am on the travel channel and the last one ends at 2pm I think. Just want to let you the people know who missed the showings during this week (like me)

I have seen 1,2 and most of 3. I am waiting to catch 4.

Three seemed like an advertisement for the renovation of the asylum in PA . They stated that it will be opening in 2010. Seemed like a great place for a haunt. Even though there was some good info I was kind of turned off because it seemed like more or an add for a place that was not even finished yet.

Related question...how many of you are running commercials on these shows?

From my perspective, anyone willing to sit through shows about haunts, are likely haunt demographics. If the shows get them excited, you can be getting them excited about your haunt.

Sure, targeted advertising is more expensive, but instead of reaching random people, you are reaching only people who like haunts enough to watch them on TV.

Those specials were awesome and they put the spotlight on a lot of great haunts!!!


...The Scare-O-Vision though got old pretty quick...

As you and others have said, they really used that stupid "Scare-o-Vision" WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY too much.

The production team behind those shows is very talented. They really know how to make attractions look even better than they actually are in reality. I caught one of the attractions that was on one of the shows the other night, and it rocked a lot harder on the show than it did in real time. You got to love the magic of the boob tube.

Adam, I agree. However, speaking with a lot of people that are not Haunt Enthusiasts (such as ourselves) really enjoyed the Scare-o-vision.. I suppose seeing people scream and fall down is not something some people are used to seeing. lol.

I loved the show and I'm truly honored to have been a part of it.

Wait don't look now but...

Yes there is an America Haunts Part 4. I think that airs tonight not sure check it out.

There will also be another America Haunts movie that has already been created and will probably air next year at this point. Its an America Haunts behind the scenes kinda show.

As for the DVD's yes we are working on that! Hope to sell them in Spirits and everywhere else starting next year.
