We Made the List Again

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.

Gearing Up For 2010 Season

The Scares Never End

Once Halloween has come, things don’t just stop at the Denver haunted houses. Now that we’ve cleaned and removed all the trash that has built-up over the season, we are now in the retrospective phase of the haunted house. We are going over each room, one by one, to determine what worked well and what is getting tired. We look over the customer comments and try to figure which rooms need repair, replacement and refurbishment. It is a process that will take the next several months, as we brainstorm ideas and go over our resources to determine how to improve the scares and flow of the attraction.
