THOUGHTS BEHIND THE THRILLS by Dennis Speigel

Halloween has always been one of my favorite event celebrations. When I was a young boy, we would look forward to Halloween, especially the “trick or treating” and the fun we would have soaping our neighbors’ windows and pulling tricks on them like tick tacking(throwing shucked corn at their windows). It was nothing seriously naughty, but just some fun stuff to be a little mischievous over the several nights we celebrated this holiday. I never liked or participated in 60 years ago what was known as “damage night.” Older kids would do mean-spirited things like turn over outhouses! Yes, outdoor toilets! And, some would find nasty pranks to play on their neighbors. They would hide things, toss garbage cans, spray paint things, and throw eggs at cars and houses. Not lifethreatening activities, but nevertheless disconcerting. How things have changed over the last 6 decades. Halloween, which was originally a North American phenomenon, has now been exported all over the world due to its fun aspects and extreme popularity. Last year, I was in Shanghai, China at Halloween and I was amazed to see the depth that the Chinese have now gone to celebrate Halloween. Nanjing Road, the major shopping street in Shanghai, was completely decorated in traditional western-style Halloween theming. I saw decorated retail stores and restaurants, and even employees were all dressed up as Dracula, Frankenstein, or a Goblin. Scary outfits were everywhere. Buildings were decorated with lights and sounds of American traditional Halloween features. Most of all, the people shopping and the employees along the way were really into it, delivering an authentic Halloween experience. Today, Halloween is the single biggest “across the board” event in our industry. Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park, California is credited with starting the Halloween activities with their “Knott’s Scary Farm” event, which they started, believe it or not, in 1973 (45 years ago!). “Halloween Haunt”, as it was originally known, was an immediate success. Other parks in the industry started creating their own Halloween programs, and these too became instant successes. Each year, operators like Six Flags, Cedar Fair, and Universal Studios added an expanded to the previous years’ programs. The events also went from being a 2 to 3 night event to being an all-month event during October for many parks. Guests loved the scary, horror-related activities and came back for more. Last year, Universal Studios in Florida reported that they drew over 600,000 guests to their “Halloween Horror Nights” event! Imagine generating well over one half a million people for a single themed event. Universal had a plethora of movies and characters they could use to establish their program. This included The Mummy, Frankenstein, Dracula, Wolfman, the Invisible Man, and many more. Their treasure trove of scary movies filled the exact needs of content to create one of the greatest programs in the theme park industry. Disney followed suit after years of studying Halloween, but decided to leave the blood, guts, and real horror to the other parks. They chose to take the childlike and family-friendly approach by creating “Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.” This was a much gentler attempt to create fun and merriment, and it works. Their concept is tongue-in-cheek with a lighter, less scary theme. It too is attended by hundreds of thousands of guests. The aspect of our industry’s Halloween events that has always surprised me is how well it was exported to countries that did not have a true Halloween event. In the 1990s, Marcelo Gutglas, owner then of Playcenter Park in Sao Paulo, Brazil, brought Halloween to his park. I went to Brazil to see it and was amazed at how well he transplanted the event into his parks. He had all the characters mentioned earlier, plus he presented a musical production in a re-created graveyard in the park that was built upon the Michael Jackson video and the song, “Thriller”. It had dozens of zombies rising from their graves and them then performing to the Thriller video. It was spectacular! Mexico also imported Halloween events. Rene Aziz put programs in his parks as well, and people poured in to see the Halloween extravaganza. As I said at the outset, Halloween is the single biggest special event in our industry.

It draws millions of people to parks in the fall “post-season” period. It can be a make-or-break event for some parks. I have seen park groups, which were experiencing flat to down seasons leading up to October, tip the ladder with a good October Halloween turnout. I have also seen it go the other way for parks that experienced bad weather like rain (which is a killer, not the cold weather). Today’s advancements in technology allow for park operators to enhance their year-to-year programs. The 2017 Halloween event season started early this year to the public. Earlier promotion to excite and tease people seems to be the norm these days. If weather is good (no rain), these events can thrive. I should say that, as I write this article, hurricane season is beginning and seriously disturbing the park business in Orlando. Whether or not it affects October’s promotions remains to be seen. We will soon find out. Halloween has changed since I was a kid. It has gotten much better and far more entertaining. No damage nights now, as that’s a thing of the past. Our industry has capitalized on Halloween and turned it into an important piece of business for parks. Let’s all watch the themed event continue to grow and entertain the millions of guests who come each year. And for those countries who have parks but are not celebrating a Halloween event, I encourage you to come see the parks in the USA who offer these events. Study them and see if you can import this funfilled concept into your parks. Just ask Marcelo and Rene. It worked for them. Boo!
