- This RFQ is the beginning of a process to procure a production vendor to Design, Build, Operate, and Strike the Fortress of Nightmares Annual Production, hereinafter referred to as FON.
- The target audience of this document is any production vendor with the necessary experience to design, build, operate, and strike a multi-attraction haunt.
- The Fort Adams Trust is a public non-profit, and is tasked with restoring, preserving, and maintaining Historic Fort Adams in Newport, RI. One of the many ways the Trust raises funding, is by hosting an annual Halloween fundraiser: Fortress of Nightmares.
- FON has been operated solely by the Fort Adams Trust for the previous 12 years, and has grown exponentially each year. FON can no longer be managed in-house, and as such, The Fort Adams Trust is seeking a third-party vendor to design, build, operate, and strike the production containing a minimum of three haunted attractions, to operate a minimum of 15 nights from October 1 – 31, 2018
