For those not familiar, we closed on the new property we' purchased for the Raycliff Manor Haunted Attraction on Friday, June 13th (Friday the 13th!) We wasted no time and began renovations inside the larger of the two buildings that Friday afternoon.

Here's a link to pictures of the property and some of the progress.

Here are some more progress pix:

Here are some pictures of the Fright Team Training Room, which is also where I conduct interviews. I need to take some more pictures as we’ve enhanced the room even more with new lighting fixtures and décor.

I have interviews lined up for this coming Thursday and I should have a complete Fright Team by the end of the weekend! I already had our first Fright Team Get-Together, which was a Raycliff Manor Viewing. The haunt is almost complete and the Fright Team was very excited to finally get inside to see the attraction. I felt like I was opening the Wonka Factory!

I’m going to try and get some good pictures of the inside of Raycliff Manor soon and post them. We’re counting down the days now and before we know it, we’ll be opening for the season!

Thanks everyone! I appreciate the kind words and support! Congrats on your new building too Kirk!

Larry, we are still a days drive away my friend and we are light years behind you! And you just keep raising the bar! I do hope to get your way some time soon, hopefully before TW 2009.

Come on down!

If I can get a handle on things on my end Larry, I just may take a road trip to see you. Of course I'll give you notice before hand though. Thanks for the invite. Thanks to everyone for the words of support and encouragement. We've taken a few more pictures and you can view them below. Please keep in mind that neither Lee nor I are photographers so the pictures aren't the best quality. These are some shots of some of the rooms we've made good progress on. We can't wait for our mini-spot order from MiniSpotlights.com to come in so we can finally replace all the lighting with mini-spots!

P.S. Here's some video footage of the singing bust in our Crypt area.

We couldn't get good footage that clearly showed the bust in action and the surrounding set. I need photography and video lessons! ; )

I can see that new lighting is really helping out.

I hope everything runs well for you guys.

And I'll see ya'll next year!

I'll be looking forward to it Brad. Too bad you're not closer. You do one hell of a job scaring!
