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!

NEW IN 2019! TransWorld's new Christmas Show will be co-located with the Halloween & Attractions Show for one low price! That's right - one entry fee for BOTH shows! For more information about the Christmas Show, visit!

The Halloween & Attractions Show also features Escape Room City, a segment of the show that caters to the room escape, virtual reality and adventure game industries.

Here’s what Exhibitors are saying about the 2014 show

“TransWorld is the show where we write all of our business for the entire year. Without this show, there simply would not be a Scare Factory. We work the entire year to come for these four days. TransWorld is everything to us and gives us a chance to reconnect with the entire industry. All of our clients and all of our contacts are in one place.”
-David Fachman, President, Scare Factory

“Haunted Enterprises loves the action packed show floor and the energy from all the exciting new things for the next season.  No other show can give you the first look of what’s to come; all of us leading vendors use Halloween and Attraction Show as our sole platform for kicking off our season each year. This show really is what sets the trends in the haunted attraction industry worldwide period.”
-Randy Griggs, Haunted Enterprises

“Creative Visions exhibits at the Transworld Halloween and Attractions show every year, without fail, for one specific reason – it is the ONLY industry show that brings all the buyers and sellers together and provides the ultimate environment to do business.  My customers are at the show and I have to be there too.  If Halloween is your business, then you need to be there too!”
-Mark McDonough, President, Creative Visions

“Gore Galore has been exhibiting at the TransWorld Halloween and Attractions show for 15 years now and our annual success is tied to exhibiting at this show.”
-Kevin Alvey, Owner, Gore Galore

“When it comes to buying for your Haunted Attraction or exhibiting as a haunt vendor, The Transworld Halloween and Attraction show is really the best option. It has the largest show floor in the industry and continues to grow every year. When exhibiting at a show, it matters most for Ghost Ride to see the highest concentration of buyers in one location, in the shortest period of time.  The St Louis The Halloween and Attraction Show is the only show that delivers year after year.”
-Michael Chaille, President , Ghost Ride Productions

This is what Buyers are saying about the 2014 show

“TransWorld gave birth to the multi-million dollar haunted attraction industry. Without this show, and without the ability to network and purchase so many amazing products, most of us would still be pursuing this as a hobby instead of owning professional haunted attractions”
-Scott Simmons, The ScareHouse

“TransWorld’s Halloween and Attractions show is the #1 Haunted Attraction Tradeshow in the Country. This is the one place where I can connect with the vendors I do business with while discovering new vendors. I rely on this tradeshow for my purchasing and decision-making whether it is for services, scare products, set design, or general materials.  Nearly 100% of my buying will occur with vendors participating on this tradeshow exhibit floor.”
-John R. Eslich, Owner, The Factory of Terror in Canton, Ohio / Owner, Forsaken Haunted House in Mentor, Ohio

“I come to TransWorld every year to do ALL my buying for the whole year. It’s THE show to attend and there is no other trade show out there that allows me to get everything done all at once. If you’re in the Haunt Industry this is the show you should be attending.”
-Shane Dabbs, Disturba Haunted House

“When I’m consulting with other Haunted Attractions or with people who are looking to get into this business, I always tell them that attending the Transworld Halloween Trade show is an absolute must. You can not be successful in this industry without seeing this show and going to the seminars they host”.
-Randy Bates, The Bates Motel and Pennhurst Asylum

“TransWorld has reliably been the most comprehensive place to see the newest technology, products, props, and innovations our industry has to offer. From the show floor to the educational seminars to the networking opportunities, Transworld remains committed to their vendors and buyers while playing an important role in helping to advance our industry overall. For people across the globe looking to start or grow their events, TransWorld is the MUST SEE show of the year!”
