Greetings!

We’re reaching out to you in hopes of joining us as a sponsor of Terror Labs. Your sponsorship will help us grow, and as a proud contributor to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia we can increase our yearly donation to them. It will also get your company some great visibility and notoriety! At this point you probably have questions about us, so please feel free to read below to learn more. 

WHO?

Terror Labs is a haunted attraction located in Coventry Mall in Pottstown, PA. We provide chills and thrills, and also donate a portion of all ticket sales to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Terror Labs opened its doors in 2016 and we're looking for business that want to advertise with a high-quality haunted attraction that helps kids!

WHAT?

All our Gold Level partners will be included on almost every piece of marketing we send out. When we advertise, you'll be included - whether it's web, print, merchandise, radio, or TV! Not only do you get brand recognition, you show people your social awareness by helping CHOP.

WHEN?

Terror Labs opens on September 28th and operates every Thursday through Sunday and the last full week of October, all the way through November 3rd. This is plenty of time to get some great exposure for your business! We will begin our marketing campaign at the end of August, and you’ll be along for the ride!

WHY?

So why are we contacting you now about Halloween? Although we operate during the Halloween season, design work and printing must be done well in advance to be certain to have you included on all our marketing materials. We don’t want you to miss out on one second of advertising!

HOW?

This is the final question, and its answer helps both Terror Labs and you. Remember those levels we mentioned? We have many sponsorship opportunities available, each with their own perks. Gold Level partners are the highest and they get that brand recognition we’ve been talking about. However, there are plenty of other ways for you to participate. Every sponsorship level has some great perks, so don’t miss out! Have your own thoughts on how to help, or in-kind sponsorship? We'd love to hear it!

The Doctor Will See You…In Your Nightmares

Coventry Mall in Pottstown, PA seems an odd place to find a Haunted House, let alone a very good Haunted House, but it is where I found Terror Labs and its CEO (let’s call him a Certified Evil Operator), Dr. Sawyer T. Bones III. A descendant of Dr. Heinrich von Bonesmacher and lead researcher in gene manipulation, Dr. Bones runs his evil laboratory in the U.S. after being run out of England. Or so the legend goes.

Terror Labs occupies a storefront inside the mall near the food court and is in its second year of operation. The Haunt is donating 10% of its proceeds to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The backstory sets a tongue in cheek tone that carries over into the Haunt itself. Perhaps because the Haunt doesn’t take itself too seriously, may be the formula that makes the horror inside work so well. There is a balance struck between putting patrons at ease enough to catch them off guard long enough to ratchet up the terror in a matter of moments and then surprise them. This is done effectively over and over throughout the attraction.

After purchasing our admission we were ushered into a dimly lit waiting room where the terror began as we quickly realized we were listening to piped-in, elevator music. After getting comfortable in the waiting room for a few minutes we were greeted by the mad doctor himself who then ushered us into his office. No detail is left unfinished in this theatrically staged scene. His experiment, Charlie, was in a bowl on the table. He was also in jars and test tubes. And Dr. Bones kept the conversation flowing in the most professionally evil manner you would expect from a man of despicable medicine. “Your eyes are beautiful,” he told one member of our party. “May I have them?”, he asked removing a tablespoon from his pocket. “Never mind,” he continued waving her off. “It’s easier to take them when the head is detached from the body.” Dr. Bones continued his rapid fire assessment of our party’s fate and opened the way to the darkened depths of Terror Labs. “The rats chewed through the electrical wiring so it’s a little dark in there. But feel along the walls to find your way. If you feel anything gooey, it’s just the people who went in before you.”

It was clear that this Haunt was something not seen in a very long time in this area. This was the type of Haunted House popularized by Jersey shore classics that thrived decades ago, namely Castle Dracula and Brigantine Castle. By the end, I’d find out why.

We moved into the operating room where we met Dr. Gruesome in the middle of her surgical experiments and then into the lunchroom. Drop doors and well timed startles worked perfectly throughout the attraction. No unnecessary screaming from the actors, no revving chainsaws, no twisted clowns. Just good old fashioned, themed terror. For only the third time this season, the Count was startled and, I admit freely, jumped fairly high.

At the end, I had a moment to converse with Dr. Bones before he had to return to his mad experiments and victims…I mean, patients.

Dr. Bones was none other than Count Dracula from Castle Dracula back in 1983 and ’84. “There’s nothing like the Castle,” he told me. “So we wanted to model the scenes here after it.” Not surprisingly he also worked in the mad scientist area of the Castle for a short time, also. His homage to his old haunting grounds is clearly a labor of love and works very well in the new atmosphere he’s created.

Terror Labs is in its second year, and as we close in on the end of Haunt Season 2017 don’t be surprised if it is Count Kenula’s pick for Best New Haunt. The admission is $15. I would love to see this attraction expand and become bigger with more scenes and actors. For now Terror Labs is creating an experiment in haunting that will give you a chilling experience and leave you wanting more from Dr. Bones and his diabolical staff of maniacs. If you are looking for some refreshing scares, and perhaps a nostalgic trip back to the days of themed and staged Haunted Houses, make your way to the Lab. The doctor is waiting to see you….in your nightmares.for Best New Haunt. The admission is $15. I would love to see this attraction expand and become bigger with more scenes and actors.

A PERSONAL NOTE FROM COUNT KENULA: With so many Haunts operating in the area of different sizes, different budgets, varying themes and background stories, and different levels of commitment by the actors, it is good to see something different than the usual offerings from run of the mill attractions. Some haunts find their groove and do what they offer very well. I've seen first class operations such as Field of Screams, Bane Haunted House, Ocean City Screams, and now Terror Labs make what they do their own. To all of you involved in operating the Lab, teamwork makes a difference. Keep up the hauntingly good work!
