That is too cool!

But you won't be able to open to the public? With all the publicity, it seems the only way you are going to be able to keep traffic down is to let people go through so they will then willingly leave the area.

let me say this...
sometimes you got to break the rules and live life. That being said we just printed off 200 fliers and 500 buisness cards that im leaving right now to go pass out.

the reason im doing this even though were not legally suppoed to is that ever niehgbor except her thinks its amazing and is dying to come and my friends wait all year to see this. i could never denie hundred of people the opportunity to visit the haunt because our neighbor has nothing better to do but stur up trouble. life is too short to spend worrying about that kind of stuff.

Best of luck to all of you for the rest of the season.
Thank you for all of your support!

God Bless your parents for being supportive and allowing you to do this, that's worth more than anything.

Congratulations on everything

Your haunted house has inspired me so much this year. We are doing our walls out of wood this year at our home haunt.

But ours still probably doesnt stand a chance against yours.

Great job and hope you have an awesome season.

We open this friday!

Also sent you a PM.

looks really good, the video is awesome!

did you guys have an problem with the building inspector with fire issues concerning the burlap and fabric hanging? did he want you to flame proof everything? I have a hallway with lots of burlap and i didnt know if i was required to treat it.
also where are you guys planning on storing everything?

dude thanks for all the support.
people like what im doing so much its the greatest feeling in the world.

um walls- go with wooden walls yes, you made good choice. in the form of how we supported them. we ran braces at angles on back in places of more than 3 consequtive panels without perpendicular wall. the rest was secured across the top. The entire thing is like blowing me away when i think about how much work when into just making the entire thing sturdy.
However we had 50 mph winds, and rain and the thin didnt even move so were set!

The problem with the inspector was this.
They thought it was amazing and wouldnt of done anything but our one neighbor complained and they had to check it out. They said no roof or floor but everthing else is fair game, that was building inspector.
The fire inspector never came out, but weve had firetrucks at our house every night that we open because of the fog lol. so we finnally told them our schedule so we dont have problem. but yeah we got one hallway of blackplastic on walls to smooth them out cause its 2 feet wide and sheets and stuff so its soft then we hung burlap/dorp netting and everything else in the world that is flamable in the way so they can bearly walk through. oh and to top it off we threw and air cannon in there lol. dropping people to there knees. We did this after inspector came so idk, but thats all fire marshall.

Thanks everyone you all rock, love the support it means SO much.

we got this huge 600 watt, chauvet cyborg light to point out the front of the cemetary and out into the street it is the most unbelievable looking thing ever cause the fog lets you see light beam its amazing.
the thing is so big were just advertising street no address.

my dream is coming true!
