The Fear PDX Haunt Tour


For our 2020 Haunt Tour we will be visiting The Fear PDX in Portland, known as Portland’s largest Halloween event. This show will give a huge behind the scenes tour, exclusive to only the West Coast Haunters Convention.

A letter from Team Fear:
It is an honor to be able to once again give the West Coast Haunters Convention community a chance to see our Haunted House. The last time we hosted a tour, our production wasn’t even a year old. Now after upgrading to a larger location and the acquisition of R.I.P. City FX, which since take over we have turned it into one of the largest Haunted House & Special Effects Makeup companies in the world, we are excited to show you how much we have grown and done. We invite you to enjoy our show, ask questions, learn, and go home inspired to create your own scary dreams!

Bus loads outside the hotel @ 7:00pm every 30 minutes

The last bus will leave the haunt @ midnight

$49 early bird ($59 after March, $69 at registration) per person, includes food and transportation

The Nightmare After the WCHCBACK BY POPULAR DEMAND AND ABSOLUTELY FREE

 

Not ready for it all to end? Staying one more night? It’s now a West Coast Haunters Convention tradition: pajama movie night after the conference. The movies are a closely held WCHC secret, so don’t ask! Besides, you come for the libation-fueled camaraderie.

Wear your pajamas. If you’re Canadian and sleep in the raw under an uncured moose hide, please consider using a modesty sheet and sufficient duct tape before arriving at the event.

No host bar and light snacks for purchase.
