tspp #286- Creating Haunt '14 at CA's Great America 10/25/14

*Subscribe @ iTunes*

This week, TSPP goes back to California’s Great America for Halloween Haunt 2014!  We dissect the creative process and development of Haunt and the HUGE leap forward CGA took this year to create a scarier, more intense, unbelievably enjoyable event.  Great conversations with Clayton Lawrence (Entertainment Manager/Haunt Master) and Roger Ross (Public Relations Manager) about the consistent upgrading to the park, creating new experinces (the Great America Pavillion) with the new Levi's Stadium and 49ers, and creating themed experiences rather than just extreme (teen) attractions.  Tons of ghoulish fun happening at CGA and it’s open through November 1st!  So go to HAUNT if you’re in the Bay Area!  Seriously…you’ll thank us. ;)  Enjoy the bloody podcast!
