The ScareActor Spectacular also known as "S.A.S." got it's start in 2018. We wanted to launch a friendly contest that would not only benefit the haunters but their respected haunts as well. The idea was to put themselves out there to the public eye and network and grow. To us, haunt season is year round, to the public it is not. This is the benefit of this competition. It allows haunters to put themselves out to not only promote themselves, but their haunts to a large audience. It keeps their and the haunts name alive throughout the off season. Of course, the further they go, the more they grow.
This contest has proven to help haunters grow to a larger audience and in doing so, it has helped those haunts with bringing in more attendance. The key for the contestants is to break out of their comfort zone with social media by putting themselves out there whether it be making videos or doing live feeds as their characters. The more they do that, the more potential people they will reach. This contest isn't all about winning and losing. It's about networking with other haunters and simply growing.
