Haunted House for the entire family

Djurs Sommerland - HeksenSkolen 2014

The assignment from Djurs Sommerland in Denmark was to increase the number of visitors to the Halloween event and to attract new target groups. Leisure Expert Group translated this aim into a themed haunted house suitable for families with children aged 4 to 12 years. This resulted in this successful, chromadepth 3D ‘HekseSkolen’ witches’ school, where everyone learns to do magic step by step.

“By using the existing dodgem car location, we were able to limit the building costs, but everything had to be removable and relatively easy to assemble and dismantle.

PROJECT MANAGER

We used chromadepth whereby a 3D environment occurs with blacklight and fluorescent colours. In this way, the concept of a witches’ school came to life in a fantastic way. It was the first haunted house in Djurs. LEG was able to help Djurs with all the aspects (marketing, costumes, technology and actors), thus laying the basis for its success.”

THE FINAL RESULT

As well as taking care of the design, production and story for this haunted house, Leisure Expert Group also provided all the costumes and trained the actors.
The HekseSkolen really is an attraction for the whole family. The visitors go back to school: in the classrooms, witches and magicians give the visitors lessons in magic. Thanks to the magic glasses and other special effects, everyone ultimately experiences what it is like to fly on a broom.
During Halloween 2014, Djurs Sommerland received 25% more visitors than during Halloween 2013.
