We were busy tonight and as I was doing my front room routine a young man's cell phone lit up in the otherwise dark room, I stepped closer to him, looked at it and said, "Is your Mother calling you again?'
When they suddenly begin playing a tune interupting the mood that I am trying to create , I just go with the flow and begin dancing a very goofy looking dance step just as if we are all in an old musical movie from 1952 and a full band or orchestra is following our every move, just waiting to begin playing so we can all begin singing and of course dancing.
The first thing Mommie's Cell-phone boy did was aim a laser at a girl in the group he came here with and she complained saying that now she had a red nipple!
I said, "Don't we all? Sort of, kind of?"
They were a fun group. They didn't get a normal tour since while they were in the house ten people they didn't know were also in the house playing Hide & Seek. I told them a hillbilly family was running lose in the house and that they should watch out!
I was getting free helpers from the faux-hillbillys. One ten-year-old boy was almost their tour guide through the house for awhile.
I had all three furnaces running before and during their time in the house, it's not all "profit" you know!

How about saying something to the effect:

Some of the equipment you use to control some of the effects in the show have been known to erase cell phone memories, so unless you really want to reprogram in your address book and the phone numbers of all your friends, I recommend turning off your cell phone.

An out an out lie of course, but at the very least they might turn it off for fear of labor. :)

But then someone would claim that you had made this happen to their cell phone, or that your equiptment somehow ruined their cell phone, so pay up!
"Oh no! That's not what happened, the haunted house spirits redirected your phone numbers to everyone in the graveyard, you are hearing what it sounds like inside of their graves!
Pretty quiet, huh?
