Everything is on schedule for the review system to be online by the first week of September! You may see the haunts get listed prior to that, so if that happens but you see nowhere to leave a review, fear not. Here are a few sample images from testing to give you an idea how it will work. We're currently adding a few more fields for capturing demographic information and then it should be ready.
I'd bet money everyone can answer "NO!" on that one - us included.
As you may know by now, we intend this year to be the first in which everyone can rate and review their favorite haunts, regardless of where they are located. That's still the plan, but our ideal custom rating system isn't coming along within the expected time frame. It's really coming down to crunch time!
Without getting into all the dirty details of the hold up, we'll leave it at this: If any of you know anyone who would be interested in some freelance web app work, please contact us. We're still trying to maintain the schedule as-is to the best of our ability, but we are certainly receptive to any assistance you or someone you know may be able to offer.
Any questions or references can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Well, June is here and we've been working hard to bring the (new) heart and soul to HauntedHouseTour.com to life.
To catch up, our new goal going forward is to let all of you have a hand in reviewing the haunted houses you go to and leave your thoughts for those who operate them. Since this piece is critical to our vision, extra time and attention is being put into making it the best possible system. We want to make sure it functions as close to how it was imagined as possible.
We have even more planned, but it's unknown how much can feasibly be achieved before haunt season begins. Anyhow, stay tuned and we'll let you know when a preview of the new rating system is available. Your feedback, as always, is greatly appreciated!
Until then - keep it scary.
Be sure to follow us on social media!
We've added a calendar to the site where we'll post various events that are haunt / Halloween / horror related, pretty much anywhere. Feel free to add your own event to this calendar; we're all about promotion here (provided it relates to the criteria above)! Anything tagged with "We'll Be There!" means just that - we plan on being there personally.
Welcome to the first look of the new HauntedHouseTour.com. There's not much...yet.
We still need to migrate over our recent years' review, work out the kinks of our new communal rating system and well, a lot more. However, I wanted to get this initial page up in time for Transworld in late March.
Getting the site live now also gives you the opportunity to help mold the site ahead of haunt season, so be sure to let us know what you think!
