Hauntworld did something like 50,000 unique visits on Halloween and that dropped the very next day (Monday) to like 6,500 ... Scarefest dropped from like 12,000 to 1,600 in one day.

WOW when Halloween comes then it GOES...

Who is open next weekend? I'll let you know how we do!

"chop!" and it's all done.
We got by without having to turn on any extra furnaces this October.

It seemed like most Oct. 31st customers were all paying with ones and fives. (All they had left?)

The weekend tent venders near us didn't do well.

We have several good-sized reservations in for next weekend

This has been a great season so far! Does anyone have experience with running next weekend? The clock is ticking with one of our radio stations... We're torn between offering a coupon/promo code for online tix or giving a blanket box office discount....

Right now we're giving returning customers and facebook fans a discount...

Will anything help... or is this life support for a guillotine victim?

will Never become convinced that a haunt can be or is open outside of October.
I speak in plain english, look them in the face when talking, they seem to be listening, have it plainly lettered upon all my advertising...yet I hear:"See you next October!"
..and this is after they have been complaing about the October crowds they had to go through my house with!??
Open every night ...? No comprend-o!?

We're open for Fri & Sat in Tallahassee, Fl, but don't know what to expect. We're having a special Lights Out night, and that should be REALLY interesting, for both cast and customer!

I know House of Torment offers a lights out at there haunt also after Halloween also. They rearrange the entire sets and give a group just one glow stick and wish them luck.
