Zombie Crawls/Walks are fast becoming a staple for haunted houses in Denver. Open to any Zombie (living or dead) these events help get the Halloween season off to a great start. Several actors from local Denver Haunted Houses participate each year and give out brochures and other goodies to entice residents to come and visit them in their natural setting. Making appearances this year at the 2nd Annual Scared.com Zombie Crawl will be actors from the 13th Door Haunted HouseCity of the Dead Haunted HouseHaunted MansionCurse of Slaughterhouse Gulch Haunt and from the newest Haunt – Decimation Haunted House.

The 2nd Annual Scared.com Zombie Crawl will be held on Saturday, October 9 at 1:00pm in Littleton.  Zombies will meet at the Dance Studio in the Woodlawn Shopping Center where the Undead will have a chance to learn the dance from “THRILLER”. They will then be lead by a New Orleans Funeral Band down Main Street in Downtown Littleton where they can mix and mingle with the live residents there. The Crawl will end up at the Reinke Brothers Haunted Mansion where the Zombies that survived it with most of their body parts still intact will be treated to lunch.  Prizes will also be given out to the most deserving Zombies who participated.

You don’t have to be working at one of the Denver Haunted Houses to participate in the crawl. The Scared.com Zombie Crawl is open to any and all Zombies.

Haunted house actorTop 13 American haunted house and Denver #1 Again!

Well, we just got word. The 13th Door haunted house has been placed once again in the list of the top haunted houses in America.

America’s Top Haunts (the group that lists the best haunted houses in America) just sent us notification that our haunted house will be joining the list for the second time in the last two years. It is quite a thrill to have been nominated and we will certainly be doing everything we can this season to show the world that we deserve the title.

One of the things that gets you selected as a top haunt is charitable work, The 13th Door is proud that thanks to the generousity of our patrons, we are consistantly able to donate more food to local food banks than any of the other haunted houses in Denver. Through our efforts, many young people are able to fulfill their community service requirements and practice skills that serve them well as they proceed to higher educational opportunities.

Thank you America’s Top Haunts and thank you to all the great people at The 13th Door that make building Denver’s best haunted house possible.

We are looking for a few good ghouls

We are starting to get in touch with our cast members in preparation for the 2010 halloween season. Building and running haunted houses in Denver takes time. To that end, we would like you to contact us if you have an interest in working with us in the coming months. We are currently performing maintainance and making modifications to the haunted house and are looking for talented people that don’t mind getting dirty building trees, putting up wallpaper, slinging a brush and spraying cobwebs. If it sounds like working in a haunted house for little or no money is your kind of thing, we’d love to hear from you.

Where did Spring Go?

Just imagine, you’ve barely shaken off the snow and it’s already time to start making changes at the haunted house. Fankly I’m getting sick of the heat and starting to think I might be some sort of vampire… I try to avoid the sun and prefer working late at night. But it’s not about the sun, at least not sun light, it’s the heat that is the enemy. We don’t have airconditioning at the 13th Door.

I guess I’m crazy thinking anyone is going to feel sorry for me. I do have one of the greatest jobs in the world… scaring people. But that isn’t going to stop me from complaining about our weather and that I prefer my Denver haunted houses cold. At least I get to wear shorts to work and drink gallons soda and water every day.

Happy New Year from the ghosts…
