FEARFEST and Necropolis.

For one low price guests get to experience two haunted attractions with two decidedly different approaches towards content and operation.
This is your chance to see the premier haunted attractions in Columbia Mo.

The Haunted Enthusiasts write..."If you only go to one haunt this year make it Fearfest!"
Necropolis, Missouri's most intense Nationally recognized haunt.

Guests can choose to drive directly to the attractions, or take advantage of motor coach service from the Convention Center.

Haunts open their doors at 8:00 PM

Prices are as follows...

$40 Haunted attractions only

$70 Includes Haunted attractions, motor coach service to and from the Convention Center, Dinner on busses ( Provided by SUBWAY) and a complementary Hauntworld Magazine.

Busses will be leaving the Convention Center at 7:00PM SHARP! (Directly after the HHA Meeting)

Discount tickets available if purchased before Feb.12th so dont delay seating is limited.

For those of you that are driving, directly after the attraction closes FEARFEST will be open for a behind the scenes lights on tour at no additional cost. Feel free to walk thru at your own pace on this guided tour and find out how we do what we do that makes us a popular haunt in Columbia Mo.

Greg,
Just out of curiosity, why is your event not being advertised on the official Transworld Haunt Show website? I see they have listed other events like the Darkness tour and Shane’s party.

Greg,

Thanks for keeping the price down for everyone to see this tour. Last year your haunts were great, I really enjoyed them. I liked Necropolis too, just not the actors touching so much but still a great haunt as well!

Adam,
The Columbia haunt tour will be on the official site in the next few days. Jen from Transworld a few days ago and I sent her the info needed so it should be on there soon.
Thanks Adam for posting out tour on your website. Getting the information to everyone lets them know all the choices they have in this jam packed weekend of fun and learning.

DA,
Thanks for the kind words. We try to keep the price down because we want all haunters to be able to have fun and entertainment without sacrificing funds that could be spent on their haunt. I dont think you will find a cheaper tour at any of the conventions.
We all love to go to haunts but we realize the time frame does not allow most haunters to visit other haunts during the haunting season.
We had a great time with our tour last year and look forward to hearing your reviews on the upcoming tour.
We have made MANY changes and I am sure you will be pleased with our new upgrades.

Thank you all for coming last year and we are glad you enjoyed it. We had a great time and cant wait for the Transworld Show.
See you there and dont forget....

Thanks for the kind words and Fearfest was not the haunt touching! Thats one of the ways Fearfest and Necropolis differ. We dont allow touching and he does. Thats his choice and our #1 rule to my actors. We would love to have you come back and see our changes!

Awsome Terror, I was about to post that I just checked our ticket sales. We are doing very well and on our way to selling out on bus seats. We were limited on the availability of busses this year because of all the busses being used for the basket ball games so SEATING IS VERY LIMITED! Buy your tickets NOW.

As a reminder, we will be offering a lights on tour of FEARFEST directly after the tour closes for those of you that are driving. The house lights will be on and guided tours will be available to show you the in's and outs of our attractions. We will answer any questions about our haunt you can ask.

ALSO... for those haunters that cant find a location this is a must see. We will show you how we turned an old farm house into a 12,000 Sqft "temporary" attraction. You have to see it to understand how we do what we do.

OK...cool. The one with the touching had the stinky actors. I was a little nervous about buying tickets when I thought yours was the one with the touching. I'm bringing my wife this year and she would really probably deck anyone who touched her. Sorry for the confusion, I will definitely buy tickets for the show.

Thanks

As you can image I can't make it but this summer I might be up in your area for some baseball tournaments... maybe we can meet up while I'm there next time. If you get any updates on your tour let me know I'll be sure to update the HHA website and Hauntworld as well!

We've got your event listed in the magazine as well!

I hope you have a great turnout!

Larry, anytime your in Columbia just give me a call. We can do lunch. Columbia's a great town for baseball and sports. I assume your sons will be playing at Cosmo Park? I wish them luck in their tournaments! Are they playing in the ShowMe Games? Well either way, enjoy our fine city.
Good luck with your tours and I hope this is the beginning of a great year for you.

Greg,
I am trying to decide whether or not to drive or get bus tickets. With me being unfamiliar with the area, how far away from the Renaissance Grand are the two haunts, and how hard is it to get there?
Thanks,
Dewayne

N2SPOOKINU
01-27-2010, 08:18 PM
Dewayne,
Thats a very good question. Columbia is about 1 hour and 45 minutes or so from St.Louis.
Fearfest is easy to find. Just head out HWY 70 west. When you get to exit 121 (Fayette exit) take that exit and follow the ramp over the hill. We are just over the hill on the right hand side. You cant miss it.

NOW, the decision to drive or ride the bus.

PRO of RIDING the BUS If your a haunter or wanting to be a haunt owner and want to chat with folks in the haunt industry I would say ride the bus if for nothing else to be able to talk to these knowledgable people and possibly pick up some pointers and information.
Yes the busses do cost more than driving but you dont have to worry about where your going and how to get there. PLUS you get dinner (SUBWAY) and a Hauntworld Magazine for riding the bus.

PRO of DRIVING If you drive you can come anytime from 8:00PM to Midnite.
You can stop where and when you want if you get hungry.
If you want to stay until we close you can tour our attraction(FEARFEST) with the lights on as we are offering a FREE HOUSE LIGHTS ON GUIDED TOUR to anyone that wants to see behind the scenes of our attractions. We will answer any questions you have and show you the in's and outs of our operation.
Rusty (bcghost hunter) will be proud to show off his security office and his 40+ security camera system which allows us to watch you everywhere while you journey thru our attractions.
DRIVING OR RIDING, THEY BOTH HAVE THEIR BENEFITS but I hope this information has helped you make your decision easier.
Thank you and look me up when you visit .... www.columbiahaunttour.com

Will do. I have heard a lot of good things about your haunt, and I look forward to meeting you. Thanks for the info about driving versus riding the bus. I think we will drive, so that we can see your haunt behind the scenes.
Thanks for opening for all of us!

Dewayne,
Thanks for the kind words. We enjoy opening for the haunt show. We had a great time last year and met alot of haunters.
We had great feedback and really appreciate everyones comments about Fearfest.
Our crew of great actors has some very special things planned for you and have been working hard to give you something diffrent that has never been done before. (Thats about all I can say or they will kill me ! lol)
I think their idea will spread thru the haunt industry once you see what they are doing.

Tater,
The Show Me Games are very popular here. The hotels are FULL when they come to town.

Larry,
SlashMasters Asylum...
About 70% of SlashMasters Asylum got a total gut and remodel. Its ready to roll for the tour.

Sarahs Legend...
We are renovating Sarahs Legend right now. It got about an 80% tearout.
We are currently in the process of finishing our largest area of the rebuild and it should be done in about 2 weeks. Then we start the detailing and distressing.

Makeup room...
Our makeup room was stripped out yesterday and is in the process of getting a face lift.

Security office...
Our new security office is on the list to be completed in 3 weeks. This will have more room and be more organized that the one we have now. Complete with 40+ security cameras.
We can follow our guests thru the whole attraction for safety of our guests and actors. If your haunt doesnt have security cameras you need to put them in your budget. They are worth every penny.
As a matter of fact... We need a security camera vendor at TW selling these things to haunts. Safety should be one of a haunters main concerns.
You will be able to see our security office when you come to The Columbia haunt tour. just ask for me and I can show it to you.

Ok, as far as showing pics of the haunt. Usually I dont post them because I want people to see it in person but ok I give in. Here are some pics of Sarahs Legend.

In the pics we have some of the cave, Kitchen,Bathroom hallways and so on. I have been tinkering with filters to see what we can do as far as pics.
I am no professional photographer but here are some pics for your viewing pleasure. lol

See it for yourself during the Transworld show Friday March 26th
