About Michael Bolton
Michael Bolton has been fascinated with the haunt industry since screaming his way round Terror on Church St in Orlando in 1999. Now, twenty years later he is the owner of ScareTOUR – a news and reviews site for scare events, as well as running ScareCON – Europe’s only trade show for the rapidly expanding scare industry. In his career, he has visited every attraction in Europe, as well as multiple attractions in the US and beyond. He has used this experience in a consultancy capacity and has designed multiple scare attractions for UK theme parks and attractions including PrimEVIL, Frightmare and the critically appraised Ghost of Christmas (the UKs first out of season horror experience.) As head judge for the European SCAR awards, he is looking forward to bringing a different perspective to HAuNTCon, and collaborating with an incredible range of US haunts. One final point – despite doing this from over 20 years, he still gets genuinely scared whenever he visits an attraction, and is usually the first one to scream during any scares!
