Haunted House Design Revolution.
Haunt Design Kit.com Launches New Education Center
Lexington, Kentucky (May 17th 2013) - Haunted house design website, Haunt Design Kit.com, officially launches its brand-new Education Center today in response to it’s growing demand for educational resources and “how-to” information.
“The response to HDK (Haunt Design Kit.com) has been huge,” says website creator Tyler Barnett. “Since our launch back in February, the site has welcomed some 950 unique visitors and has had nearly 5,000 page views.”
Haunt Design Kit.com focuses on haunted house and attraction design using modern technology to make the process easier and more accessible to the smaller, family-owned attractions. Currently, the website hosts several free downloadable “kits” that are made to be used with Trimble’s SketchUp; a free 3D modeling software provided by Google.
“SketchUp is a wonderful program. Many architects use it today to design and pre-visualize their homes or projects,” Barnett says. “We’re just trying to bring this technology into the haunted house industry and make it as easy as possible for attraction owners and designers…but it does come with a learning curve; which is why we created the Education Center!”
The Education Center at Haunt Design Kit.com will be home to free articles, interviews, videos and resources…all in an effort to help sway the learning curve for its users. “This is a big step for us,” Barnett added. “But we’re trying to revolutionize the way people are designing their shows…and this is just our first leap forward.”

The creators of Nightmare Forest in Brandenburg, KY bring you a new haunt that will be invading Shepherdsville, Ky this Halloween season. It's called Dead End Hotel and promises to be a quality event that is sure to put a chill down your spine.
Dead End Hotel is a hotel themed haunt that's primarily indoors. It's based on a hotel built around the 40's and had to shut down in the late 60's to early 70's.There was a strange and unfortunate murder and Justine Brown was found hanging in one of the rooms upstairs. Guests reported sightings of ghosts, and complained of the sound of footsteps in their room.
Every room in the hotel has a hotel theme, from a hotel room, to a secret gambling room, a bar, the janitor's closet, etc. Once you complete going through the hotel there will be approximately 5 sites that will be outside. These scenes will be based off of a carnival that used to reside at the Dead End Hotel.
Dead End Hotel will be open every Friday and Saturday starting September 20th. It's located at 495 South Lakeview Dr, Shepherdsville, Kentucky 40216.
