View Full Version : Honeymoon tours

06-28-2009, 08:26 PM
My wife and I got married on the front steps of our haunt 2 years ago Sept.22 the night of our premier. As you could imagine we were not able to have a honeymoon because of our haunt being open and it being crunch time.

Fast forwarding 2 years, we're finally going to have the time to take a "honeymoon" road trip to "get away" for a week.

We are looking for haunters that would be willing to let us tour their haunt since we dont get much time during the season to visit other places.

We would love to see other haunts during buildup/construction. We are intrested to see the diffrent construction methonds used and how other haunts do things. We think this would be a great way for us to meet new people in the business and make new friends.

We will be leaving Missouri Friday nite July 10th. We will be covering the following states......


If anyone would be kind enough to offer a tour of their haunt it would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you

Greg, you guys were nice enough to give me a lights on tour during TW, and since we are building ours this year, your welcome to come by.

We are in Shreveport, LA just off of I-20. We are in the downtown area.

I will be coming home on July 10, and will be in town for 2 weeks. If you can fit this in your tour let me know, and we'll be ready for you.

I talked to Patrick at HauntedWeb in Memphis. He just needs to know what time you'll be coming through Memphis so you can set it up. If you want to get hold of him directly, his username is HauntedWeb on here too.

You are welcome to stop by Hauntedweb of Horrors in Memphis. Just send me a note at patrick@hauntedweb.com

Patrick just a quick note to thank you and your crew for giving my wife and I a tour of your facility today. We had a great time and enjoyed ourselves! We talked about your haunt for many miles as we traveled to our next destination. Thanks again and if your EVER in Columbia Missouri give us a call and stop on by so we can return the favor.
Thank you!

Just an update.... We stopped in at Graystone Manor Saturday afternoon all I can say is WOW!!!!! If you love haunts this is a MUST SEE!!! We were speechless in the size of the complex this sets on. Their waiting area alone is larger than most haunts in the country. The thought that went into building this haunt and the dedication by THE WHOLE CREW to make this place seem real is unbelievable. Shane said Graystone was 38,000 sq ft. well it seemed like 138,000 sq ft. With all the space still available to use this could easily be the largest haunt in the world. The detail, props, animatronics,waiting area and swamp were TOP NOTCH. I asked how long this haunt had been running and my jaw dropped when they told me just 3 years. Keep an eye on Graystone Manor! They are an up and coming haunt that everyone can appreciate. To Shane and the crew, Thank you for your hospitality. We had such a great time we are staying in your town one more day before we head to Georgia. For all you haunters out there....PUT THIS HAUNT ON YOUR LIST! YOU GOTTA SEE THIS PLACE!!!!

Any haunts in Georgia want to open their doors for the honeymoon tour?
Thank you,
Greg and Christina

I had a good time and enjoyed our dinner chat. I wish I had more time to hang but with family in town for a visit you know how that goes. I can say I am always honored anytime a fellow haunter visits and enjoys the place.

You know when I got home I did the math on the size of the Manor ( the actual haunt part) and its actually 44,000SqFt that we are using for the haunt and then 17,500 of arena space or queue area as you can tell we still have about 125,000SqFt were not using! Heck who knows maybe one day the worlds largest haunted house! I foeget who holds that title but look out LOL!

People if your in the Haunt business open your doors for these guys! They are getting to do something most of us don't get to do and there great company! They are heading over to GA Ben you around? Shane and its THANKS again guys for the kind words! Shane this time.

I want to salute and thank all of the haunt owners for being open to this. It's very hard to get away during the season if you are associated with a haunt, so this is a great thing for fellow haunters to do. Most haunters are really great people, and I have come across a lot who have been very hospitable and willing to share ideas. Shane at Graystone is one of them, and it sounds like his haunt is awesome.

My wife and I plan to make a similar trip before we start our own haunt next year.
Have fun on your honeymoon trip, and keep letting us know about your travels!

07-13-2009, 07:01 PM
I look forward to meeting you. Greg have you guys made it to Georgia yet? Shane and its is the GPS working? Shane this time!

07-13-2009, 09:48 PM
Hey Shane, yep the GPS was working.lol We are in Savannah Georgia now. We are spending a couple days here then heading west. Thanks for the special tour this morning it was a great treat for us! You are a great friend and your hospitality was awsome.
Thanks again for all your kindness and we cant wait to see you guys again!
Thank you,
Greg and Christina

I had a ball hanging out with you guys again, and as always someone ended up drunk, LOL. The Jello shots were awsome event the vodka orange food colored ones. I am so glad y'all had a great time and enjoyed the haunt we all put some time and love into it, infact the day y'all showed up Vinny was putting tin on the back roof for the second haunt. Can't wait to come see yall again and my wife said we are comming up for the 4th of July party so have the shots ready next year LOL.

07-19-2009, 07:38 PM
Hey Doc (MY BFF LOL),
We had an awsome time and can't wait to see you again!!! Tell your wife that
we look forward to you coming on the 4th to our party!
I am going to have lots more jello shots!!!
And since she is from "good stock" I will make her some of her own!! LOL! I love you anyway though!

Well we finally got home this afternoon. We want to thank ALL of the haunts that were kind enough to open there doors to us. We saw many awsome haunts and the diffrences in the way each haunt is differs in construction and detailing is amazing. We shared great conversation and ideas with many haunts across the country. Our travels took us OVER 4000 miles in many states. We had a great time and want to do it again when time permits. If anyone else has the time to do this I highly recommend it, it was a blast! If any haunters across the country ever come by Columbia Missouri give me a PM or a call and we will return the favor.

Thank you,
Greg and Christina

07-19-2009, 10:55 PM

I will see you guys again at TW!!

07-20-2009, 07:45 AM
yeah great to meet with you two over lunch, sorry i could not have taken the day off! hope you enjoyed what we had setup so far! ;)

07-20-2009, 10:00 AM
I opened my door...but it was just a barn..so it didnt really work out that well. Now Greg whats this about Jello Shots? Granny loves the Black Cherry ones

07-20-2009, 09:18 PM
Well Tater, a relative of mine makes the best jello shots you have ever tasted but they are a "little" strong! (Right Doc?) lol Anyway when you come down here in October Tater we will give you a sampling of Columbia jello shots lol. The strawberry ones seem to be liked the best with the peach ones a close second. BEWARE OF THE VODKA ORANGE ONES. They are killers!
Thanks Brad and Zach for dinner. You didnt have to! Good luck this year. Your haunt is moving right along and your ideas are great. I wish you great sucess in 09!
