Among the horror fests listed for October on Haunt Jaunts Paracons & Horror Fests page is Monster-Mania Con, which happens October 4-6, 2019 in Hunt Valley, Maryland. Their tagline is “Meet Horror’s Hottest Stars.” And they’re not kidding.

But in addition to seeing celebs, watching horror movies and shopping the vendors, Monster-Mania Con also offered a bus tour.
The Exorcist Tour
I say “offered” because it’s sold out, but it’s still worth writing about because what a great idea for a tour, right?
Here’s what lucky tour goers can expect:
- Includes a visit to the famous The Exorcist Steps, House and also the famous Tombs Restaurant, which was featured in the film.
- The movie will be shown on the bus during the tour.
- The bus is equipped with bathrooms and heat/air conditioning to keep everyone comfortable.
