Helping Spooky Friends Since 2015
On August 16th, 2015 – HauntScene was founded right before the Haunt Season by two long-time haunt fans who met through the interactive Legendary Truth tasks at Universal Studio’s Halloween Horror Nights. With a similar passion for all things scary and Halloween, the pair decided to partner up to bring the world a friendly site that stays updated with the latest local haunt news, gets other fans involved, and simply allows people to celebrate the fall season for all it has to offer.
Starting in 2018, Hauntscene has started to venture more and more out of the State of Florida. We now do annual road trips – and so far have visited a total of 112 Haunted Attractions across 20 states. One of our long-term goals is to visit at least one haunted attraction in all 50 states!

Johnny “Bronto” Lipscomb
Owner/Founder/Host/Technical Director of HauntScene
Johnny “Bronto” Lipscomb is a transplant to Florida by way of Detroit, Michigan. All it took was visiting his first independent Haunt for Johnny to fall in love with the Haunted Attraction industry, where he’s been a strong advocate since. “How can people give you money when they don’t know you exist?” has been his motto. He leverages Social Media strategies, technology, and his own patron expertise to do anything in his power to help Haunt succeed and grow. Johnny created HauntScene in 2015 to spread awareness on first the local “Haunt Scene” in Florida and now has expanded nationally. The long-term goal of the show is to do one Haunt in every state, and so far he’s been to over 100 unique haunted attractions in 20 different states and plans road trips every year to visit new locations and attend industry conventions. Johnny leads a team of passionate haunt enthusiasts and does a show on Haunts and Horror called HauntScene LIVE every Tuesday Night at 8 pm EST (The live show runs from April until November).
When he’s not out getting spooked, he works as a corporate trainer and public speaker.
