A themed attraction design and consulting firm, Hauntrepreneurs® has specialized helping people open dark themed attractions for over 40 years. Working like an architect, Hauntrepreneurs® produces design and production drawings so that local contractors can build the attraction on site, saving the client shipping and overhead. Then a small Hauntrepreneurs® install team arrives onsite to supervise installation, scenic painting, illusion and special effect set up, scare operation and help train the attraction staff.
