In early 2018, the Ideaman team discovered a new world for magnets. A world full of darkness, monsters, and terror. This was the world of Scream Parks – theme parks of haunted houses, escape rooms, and other scary attractions.
Much to our excitement, the St. Louis area is the nation’s number one destination for all things frightening. St. Louis is home to the country’s largest scream park, Creepyworld, and the world’s biggest Halloween trade show.
Ideaman started out developing magnets for Scarefest’s top two scream parks, Creepyworld and The Darkness. For Creepyworld, Ideaman designed a magnet with a terrifying witch character holding a broom while conjuring up a bright green ball of fire. The Darkness magnet design features a creepy, purple robed grim reaper character holding a large scythe.
After those two magnets caught the attention of people in the industry, Ideaman was invited to attend Transworld’s Halloween & Attractions Show. The trade show is the only one of its kind in the world, where haunted houses, corn mazes, paintball fields, retail stores and more meet to network and show off the year’s new products and exhibits.
Creepyworld is America’s biggest and longest haunted screampark. The park boasts 13 haunted attractions in one location and adds new ones every year. Some of the themes include a cemetery, hospital, prison, carnival, world war zombie quarantine, a Christmas Krampus horror story, and more.
At 24 years, The Darkness is one of the longest running haunted houses in the country. It’s been featured on the Travel Channel, History Channel, A&E along with other TV programs and also print publications. The Darkness includes two floors of fright, the 3D Terror Visions, a monster museum, small escape rooms, laser tag, and a lot more.
These St. Louis attractions are features of a haunted empire created by Larry Kirchner. Along with Creepyworld and The Darkness, Kirchner runs a trade magazine called Hauntworld, as well as The Abyss at Lemp Mansion in St. Louis.
