Experiential Supply was born into the entertainment industry, delivering large-scale experiences for movie studios from Hollywood. From themed interactive screenings to multimillion-dollar micro-theme parks to promote theatrical releases, the events were always free and promotional in nature. Once the pandemic hit, the company started creating its own experiences – Haunt O’Ween was born in October 2020. The original experience was designed as a drive-thru in the Los Angeles area to ensure that children can still trick or treat. Cars were driven from house to house (built by the company) and candy was literally thrown into their cars. Designed the same way Southern CaliforniaEvent-based events are their Christmas Wonderland and Sugar Rush – a candy-inspired Wonka-like world.
In 2021, Haunt O’ Ween morphed into an in-person format, focusing on the engaging nature of Halloween and immersing guests in a myriad of activities. Over 100,000 attendees received over 3,000,000 candies. Bring the event to New Jersey in 2022 is part of its plan to bring that kind of full immersion to Halloween fans everywhere.
“It’s about families having a safe and incredibly fun place to enjoy the holidays and there’s nothing quite like it.” adds Smith.
There will be plenty of food and drink available so families can enjoy a full evening. Past sponsors include FX – What We Do in The Shadows, Warner Bros. Pictures The Witches, KiwiCo, Happy Dad Hard Seltzer, Malibu Winesand The Addams Family 2.
