    Okay tons of updates here... I walked around the show and I'm just being honest here. Based on what I saw and keep in mind only maybe 30% of the show seems set up. I'm uploading photos of the different booths so far... I personally think its better to take photos when no one is there. I will try to snag more later today.

    The best overall booth so far and again they are NOT set up totally yet... this is tough! Gore Galore might have the best booth, Dark Raven might as well... House of the Dead guys booth is really awesome but it wasn't done! Their detail is really incredible. Kudos to those guys! Scarefactory had a really cool inflatable... but best overall booth without seeing anything work probably Dark Raven or Gore Galore. Larry

    Here is the Dead House booth... again really awesome detail but when I saw their booth it was MAYBE 70% done so hard to judge them yet! But from what I saw it was really awesome. They brought part of a trailer haunt which they detailed out the inside and it was really incredible. My only concern with it is I know what it takes for us to open one of those certain ramps, electrical, sprinkler system, and they way they had people doing a U in the trailer would never work based on the traditional configuration that we've seen trailer haunts. They might have a different configuration in mind... but I will say this and I'm just being honest I've never seen the inside of a trailer haunted house that detailed. It was pure amazing. I think they said they are offering them for 20k per trailer however based on my insight you would need to do a lot of safety work and work to make them secure as well on top of it... but in all honesty if you get the trailer and the detail it would be worth it. I would still like to see how they plan to match them up and make a configuration out of them and if they plan to offer sprinklers, electrical, e-lights, ramps, roll up metal doors or what... all that stuff ads up quickly when building a trailer haunt.

    I have a trailer haunt and mine isn't 1/10 as good... however I never put much time into mine but maybe now I will! LOL

    Again totally kudos to these guys ... amazing crew!

    Like I said with Dead House... I did NOT see anything work, nor was anything totally done. When I went over to Dark Raven he was still working on his booth as well but I must say he's probably one of the only companies that actually sells animations and on top of it does amazing detail work around the animations. Does he have the best overall booth... hard to say I need to see what his animations do first. But it looked very very impressive.

    Gore Galore looks like he brought the whole entire TOWN with him... he might have the most stuff of any company at the show.

    I didn't see Ghost Rides booth they are still working on it so I'll grab pics of their booth later.

    I saw Distortions Booth but it didn't look finished ... they told me they need an entire day to finish it. So hard to say anything about their stuff just yet... like I said and if we're lucky maybe 40% of the show is actually set up right now. LONG WAYS TO GO!

    I did notice that the show didn't stretch as far into the second hall I guess a lot of Halloween retail vendors passed this year. Oh well!
