Can a Chairitable haunt work together with a profit haunt, at the same location? What do you think?

What they be doing alternating nights in the same structure?
Just change a sign every night outside?

Nope Jim, differant buildings same nights that they are open. Rather then people standing in one line for 30 to 45 min, they can spend that time going into another haunted house.

It will depend on the owner of the "for profit"
Some owners have the mentality of "If they are going into another haunt I am loosing money" I would love to see a public-private haunt venture work.

I don't see why not. I have seen it where a better known pro haunt has a space for a temporary charity outside. The pro haunt looks like it is quite the sport and helping the community even if they might actually be the same company.

You end up with two completely different advertising campaigns and styles and grabbing different kinds of patronage all at one location.

You could probaly invite the owner of the profit haunt to share part of the profit.

One possibility that will save the non-profit from building a haunt from scratch is, staffing the profit and having, i don't know, say 40% of that nights profits go to the non-profit organization. Another possibility would be to sell novelties/food, and make $$ from that. As far as 2 seperate buildings, I can't think of any unique ideas. Maybe you pay the profit 'rent" every night your open, and make 100% off of your building's ticket sales? Or combine the tickets into one "fright fest" ticket, so you can advertise "two massive, all indoor, haunted houses for the price of one"

I would like to say thanks to all who have share there two cents on this subject. I would be not profit haunt, using space at a charity haunt. I thought I would just let you know. I have contacted this haunt and am waiting for a reply.

Sounds like a great idea to me! Like Greg pointed out, you could share the cost of advertising and cross-promote. That's always a good thing!
