Like all major events, we have experienced growth pains. We want our old and new fans to know, your happiness and safety is our number one concern. Through a series of challenges, not in Spooky Empire’s control, we were sad to see what transpired with the Funko Pop dolls, which our celebrity guest intended to be a fun opportunity for fans. We’ve learned from what transpired and plan to use that knowledge to bring attendees an even more ultimate and satisfying experience. We are growing bigger and better every year, so we’re excited to have everyone back in 2019! – Pete Mongelli, Co-Founder of Spooky EmpireStay on top of Orlando news and views.
