Haunt Actors Horror Storys
I heard some of these last night and they were not pleasant.
Haunt owners throwing a temper tantrum when a young actor gets severely injured because in large part because of a dangerous, poorly designed scare they put him into.
"We don't like any of that "Medical" Lawsuit" stuff , so you just GO HOME!"
Having an actor armed with a real baseball bat to smack the wall with, then a customer disarming him and breaking the actor's hand as it gets smacked with the bat....
Having a small woman manhandled, slammed up against a wall infront of the customers(this was planned) but an irate upset customer attacked the monster slamming the girl and hurt him!
Anything can happen in the dark in a haunted house...but...if the ticket booth keeps the drunks out and the owner/designer thinks protectively of their helpers when they design the scares, maybe those "little people' that make it all happen could have a happier time of it.
I got upset hearing all of these things..because it all seemed so unnecessary....
The Possible "Worst-Case Scenario"
Was once mentioned on this forum many years ago, maybe it was true, maybe not?
The drunk was the tractor driver of the haunted hay wagon! This would quickly multiply the potential injurys and even deaths possible from just one person's being drunk.
"I'm gunna see just how FAST this tractor can motate! Hang on everybody!"
Scarier than any ticket-holder ever wanted it to be.
