The Certified Haunted Attraction Operator Safety (C.H.A.O.S.) Program is the Haunted Attraction Association (HAA)’s safety course that is recommended to anyone running a haunted attraction. Each year, HAA partners with TransWorld to offer safety classes haunt professionals can attend to fulfill their requirement for certification.
Individuals must complete eight hours in order to receive their certification. Once they have completed the eight hours, they will receive a certificate that can be used to show their fire marshal, insurance carrier, and local authority their desire to run a safe haunted attraction. Each person has to attend the 8 hours individually and hour credits are not shared between staff from the same haunt.
Part of the mandatory requirements of the HAA Top Haunts program is that at least one person has to have a current CHAOS certification on the staff. HAA members that have multiple haunts in different locations have to have a person CHAOS certified for each location to qualify for Top Haunts.
Effective March 2020, all CHAOS certificates are valid and current for 3 years. All previously issued CHAOS certificates will expire and will expire and not be considered current after March of 2023.
COST: HAA Members: $20, Non-Members: $75
The HAA Board of Directors Join HAA members in an open discussion about the past haunt season and the upcoming season. Each year the seminar is moderated by the President of the Association. We discuss HAA’s Strategic Plan with a keynote as well as talk about what went right and what went wrong. Be prepared to ask questions and share your own experiences. This is a must attend seminar – hear what other haunters are doing across the U.S. and abroad from marketing to safety to operational tips. It will be packed with valuable information for every haunter whether you are a beginner or a long time haunt veteran. Excellent networking opportunity.
This event is where the Association rolls out the black carpet and recognizes attraction owners, vendors, and others who have excelled in our industry. Presented by The Haunted Attraction Association at TransWorld’s Halloween & Attractions Show in St. Louis, these awards are the highest achievement in the Halloween and Haunted Attraction industry. Don’t miss this very special event!
This Haunted Attraction Association event will offer complimentary food and a cash bar for all to enjoy.
The Haunted Attraction Association’s Live Auction is held annually to raise money for the association to provide members with an array of great benefits.
Each year, vendors donate some of their most popular, expensive, and prestigious props, animatronics, and services to our auction, making it a great place to land big items for a great deal! Since the auction takes place on Friday evening at TransWorld’s HAA Show, you will still have two days on the show floor to purchase any items you wanted but didn’t win! There’s no reason not to stop by and see what we have going up for bid!
If you would like to donate a product or service to the auction, please fill out the donation form below.
