Long Island’s Chamber of Horrors is an Economic Asset for Local Communities

Engaging talent, businesses and resources in cities across the nation, seasonal haunted attractions are proving to be valuable assets for the business community in the month of October.

That’s especially true for Chamber of Horrors, presented by NY Auto Giant, and the Long Island area, where haunt owner Marty Arominski recruits a temporary staff of more than 50 to help carry out one of the premier haunted attractions in the region.
“We’re hiring specialty talent—actors, make-up artists, set designers. These folks are great at what they do, and providing the opportunity to demonstrate their high-quality skills is a step in helping them get exposure and build resumes,” says Arominski.
Each year, the Chamber of Horrors holds an open casting call and seeks to recruit the best in their area for jobs that are otherwise difficult to come by.
In addition, haunts have also begun to capitalize on their high volume of attendees in a short window by partnering with local businesses in cross-promotion.
“Our haunt has consistently brought in more folks each and every year, breaking the 10,000 mark last season. We buy media, we partner with businesses and we have really unique marketing assets,” adds Arominski. “It’s a privilege to utilize those assets to make a longer term impact in the community that supports us. We make sure businesses have the chance to economically engage with our attendees for high value marketing and advertising.”
Last year, Chamber of Horrors began making concerted efforts to engage with local businesses and brands by offering sponsorships. For the 2015 season, they’ve demonstrated the power of partnerships for seasonal attractions by engaging New York Auto Giant, the region’s largest automotive dealer, as well as brands like PepsiCo’s Dew Kickstart.
Citing the value of thousands of millennial attendees with expendable income, the seasonal attraction is a cash infusion into the tourism-driven area.
“The crowds are late night, looking for food and drinks before and after the attraction. It creates an opportunity to have a good time, and that’s exactly what benefits restaurants, hotels and other local businesses that thrive on recreation,” said Arominski.
