    I see both sides. And topthrillryan05 was correct to make the movie trailer comparison. I hate the way those overblown commercials show all the best parts, major surprises, and usually infer the...

    I'm not suggesting haunts not pay their actors if you can afford it, but I don't want the haunts that worry they are breaking the law by using volunteers to live in fear of The Men in Black....

    Indirect advertising

    Some film students approached me wanting an interview about the history of Sunland-- the real life mental hospital that we incorporated into our haunt. I was happy to accommodate and the short...

    If your haunt is REALLY scary, a lifetime pass only gets used once.

    In most cases, however, "lifetime" pass means for the lifetime of the business, not the customer.

    You might want to mention your location, since it would really help if it were nearby enough to be visited.

    The problem with putting latex on bigger props here in florida is the heat will ruin them over the summer. There isn't any way to air condition that giant warehouse! (We an stash the smaller stuff...

    It's great they won, but we still need major Tort reform. When you see all the buses, billboards, radio, TV and phone book ads advertising Personal Injury lawyers, you know it has gotten waaaay out...

    Giving away tickets is good when it's done the way Austin does it-- by making the participants "share" your link. One way I do not think works well is when radio stations give away lots of tickets....

    What's the big beef about a laser hitting the eyes? These are dance club lasers, not super villain "No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die" lasers. They are weak and keep moving. Any "blindness" is...

    We finished up on Sunday night and spent most of Monday sleeping-- so now I finally have a chance to read and write more on the forum.

    This might be a good thing, since it encourages a lot of the crowd to come on the weekend before. We will certainly be open Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Halloween. I expect Saturday will be the...

    Any low Halloween turnout predictions were certainly wrong for us-- we had our biggest turn out of the season that night, up a whopping 50%! (Thank goodness there wasn't a night football game, as it...

    My apologies for not seeing this sooner (we've been swamped here with the season) but Wicked Farmer is correct. Austin & Company have been very effective, nearly doubling our "likes" and keeping...
