Ticket boot / Concession placement...
I personally have an odd setup, I know. But it's what I've got so I gotta roll with it.
I've got some pictures to help paint the ... picture. So bare wit me and let me show you what I got, and describe my dilema.
First, I have a parking lot with initially 150 parking spaces. I'm using some of those for the haunt buildings, so I have about 120 Parking spaces in a lot. that's the first thing you see when you come down the road, is the lot.
Second, is my buildings for the haunt, I call them buildings #2 and #3. Building #1 is the house.
I need to know what you guys' opinions on where to put the ticket booth and concession stand. My wife thinks it'd be best to put it on the end of Building #3, but I don't think that's the best spot. I personally think it'd be better to have at least the concession stand in the middle of the que line. People are more likely to purchase something if it's closer to them (when they're in line). Look at the pics and see what you think.
The large blue brick building you see in pic #3 is what we WERE going to have it in. Now, the que line is just going to be in front of it. They'll line up in front of this building and the que line entertainment will be to the left, along the haunt buildings. I think the concession (at least) should be about where the trailer is.
Now, pic #1, it was discussed to have a wall about 10 foot inside of that building, and have the ticket sales there and also let the exit be next to it. So the people buying tickets get to see the folks coming out.
The last pic, I think you can figure out, the parking lot is to the right, as is the main road. The problem with this setup that I know is, the cars in the lot are blocking almost anything I do to the front. If the lot is even half full, people driving by will only be seeing the top half of the walls. So i'll be painting "Haunted House" or "Night Terrors Haunted House" across the tops of the walls in large letters.
Any ideas? Should I have ticket sales on the end of the buildings? Or even between the buildings and the parking lot? We plan on having lights and strobes for attention getters for the drive byers. So I don't think we'll really NEED the ticket sales out front.
Just curious as to what you guys think.
I'd appreciate any and all input.
