List Highlights New Standards of Fear and Fun at Leading Haunts

St. Louis, MO - To kick off the 2007 Haunt Season, Hauntworld Magazine, the haunt industry's leading trade publication, today announced its list of the Top 13 Professional Haunted Attractions in the country. These attractions are being recognized for their attention to detail, high-quality special effects, and overall scare factor.

Ranging from haunted hotels and prisons to spooky hayrides, the list represents the best haunted attractions the nation has to offer, as selected by the editors at Hauntworld Magazine. In an industry that has reached the multi-billion dollar mark, these haunts are leading the way in scream-inducing innovations.

"The haunts we've included are as expertly produced as any major motion picture today," said Editor-in-Chief of Hauntworld Magazine, Larry Kirchner. "They have behind-the-scenes teams of master Hollywood special effects technicians, make-up artists, set designers, and trained actors. We're an industry that exists to make people scream and laugh at the same time - and these haunts do just that, and more."
