Here’s What People Are Saying

"If you are a serious haunt owner or operator, you cannot afford to miss TransWorld. It has everything you could possibly need to start up and run a major haunted attraction; from insurance agents and ticketing systems to large scale props, costumes and masks. I’ve attended every year since 1995 and it keeps getting bigger and better"

-Randy Bates, Bates Motel and Pennhurst Asylum
