When it comes to Halloween, Kansas City’s West Bottoms could arguably be described as “scare central” in our metro.
Home to four haunted houses, including one of the largest in the country, these West Bottoms locations are big business for Full Moon Productions, which runs these scream factories.
According to Forbes magazine, they generate 2 million dollars in revenue in the 30 working days leading up to Halloween, selling tickets at 25 dollars a pop.
Producer Sandy Woodson shows us more about the family company that got its start, believe it or not, four decades ago doing summer theater in the Lake of the Ozarks and was simply looking for something else to do for the rest of the year to help pay the bills.
And by the way, one of the attractions at the Edge of Hell has just slithered its way into the Guinness Book of World Records. Medusa, the 25 foot, 2 inch long python coiled inside the cavernous 38-year-old haunted house, has just been named the longest snake ever in captivity.
