Murder House: Tampa's Scariest Haunt

Donation protected
Halloween "GoFundMe" for Murder House to raise the capital needed to continue the Scare Fest and Annual Tradition in Ybor City within Tampa, Florida. 

The Funds that this GoFundMe provides will be used to lease "The TECO Gasworx Facility" for 2020.  Our MH Team is prideful of our accomplishments since Murder House's conception in 2013. The event has grown in size rapidly. It also demands a venue that allows for a competent  Haunted Attraction to be constructed with all the fire safety regulations regarded. In Ybor City, it is difficult to find a venue that fits the requirements for fire safety while retaining the size and space needed to make the attraction worthy of annual Cult following. Murder House has found its "Criminal Warehouse" at the "TECO Gasworx Facility." The owner of Murder House asks for a commitment to the Attraction by donation. Consider a $10 Per Admission Ticket Presale and provide your proof of $10.00 donation to redeem for a "Single-Use" Admission Ticket Voucher. (No Expiration) 

Murder House
needs our ScareFans support! If you know anyone that enjoys Horror, then share Murder House and have them follow on social media. I am preparing for the true vision of this Scare Festival, as a replacement event for Ybor Cities famed Guavaween!

    The MH staff raises money for "The Big Cat Rescue" Animal Sanctuary. Enjoy the event but more importantly, do your part to help out Charity.


     Murder House has a policy of Aggressive Expansion. We are going to take over Ybor City and Tampa every October and Halloween Season. Prepare yourselves for the "Thrill Kill." Meet the "Killers" as you survive these Mutator Monsters created from drug serums. The Clowns won't save you. They will use you as pawns if you seek refuge. The Joke Killer is amassing his Clowns Army and they fortify the city centers.  Enter the establishments that are a perversion of the businesses that used to populate Tampa. 

The Haunt started in 2013 with a motivation to raise money for a local charity in Tampa. Our first year created an annual event in which a dedicated team of Theatrical Actors comes together to form the Murder House ensemble. In our third year, we had over 8,000 people attend the Halloween Event and so we searched Tampa for a permanent location for the Murder House Scare Festival. 

Murder House desires a 10,000+ SqFt warehouse space with On-site parking or access to parking facilities. The owner remembers the hay day of the Guavaween Festival, which landed Tampa on the map as a Halloween Destination. Murder House searched Ybor City for the perfect Historical building to host the ScareFestival. A Lease was issued for operating Murder House at The Cuban Club, a reported haunted building that was featured on the T.V. show Ghost Hunters. After difficulties obtaining permitting the event had an excellent turnout of MH Fans upon opening.

In 2018, Murder House found the ultimate location for the vision of the Haunt. The opportunity to lease a legendary building, "The TECO Gasworx  Facility" , makes Haunt History in the Horror Industry! The building itself is an expansive 24,000 SqFt space that allows for a unique experience. Murder House has diversified into a special Brand with its host of additions. Haunt DJ keeps mixing that Halloween music in the waiting area and party zone. The Anarchy Angels provide waiting room entertainment. Horror Customs is a Horror themed car show with Hearses and other Horror Custom rides.  Adult Halloween Entertainment hosted right in Ybor City in Tampa. The event was the largest scale ever constructed in  Ybor, a project that took an entire three months to set up. Murder House submitted its paperwork to the City of Tampa officials on September 12 but a permit was not issued until October 19. Attendance was exceptional given the circumstances. The impact was detrimental to our operation timeframe and the Haunt suffered to have to capital to continue our purposeful "Mission Statement."

Murder House is a leader and innovator within the Horror Industry. The MH team has a definitive "Mission Statement." The safety of our Patrons is our primary focus. Murder House is a provider of stellar Adult Entertainment crafting an intense environment of fear! The brand is dedicated to fundraising an annual donation to a local charity: The Big Cat Rescue Animal Sanctuary. Finally, our mission is to allow you to witness a fantasy horror experience without being touched while in full safety.
