    <<I can not see how anyone who said up to 25,000 has any type of quality haunt or a professional one. Our advertising costs more then twice that.
    I would say 25000 would get a start on a home...

    The link isn't working (at 2:30 AM eastern time, Tuesday morning). Can someone update it?

    The ironic part is that the props actually do more than real security guards. (For starters, they don't leave their posts.)

    Yes, Christians tend to be vilified in the media for two reasons-- because reporters love to sensationalize everything to grab more attention and besides, Christians are not considered a minority,...
  5. Anyone see the documentary "Hell House" (about Christian "judgement" houses"?)

    I just watched the documentary "Hell House" about the Fundamentalists "Judgement Houses" that "compete" with haunted attractions. I enjoyed it a lot and was curious if anyone else saw it or...

    Many of these drop frames and such would be cheaper and more effective with actors (unless you're open for 40 hours a week all month). Sometimes the animatronics work better, but they are 100 %...

    Had zero dollars and a credit card with a $10,000.00 limit. Reinvested the "profits" each year. Those for the good old days!

    Really, it depends on the price and the mall. I know of a local mall that offered rent for over a 10,000 square foot location for under $300 a month-- but that Mall was on life support and the lease...

    They're here, as promised (or threatened?): haunted house trading cards. It's a gritty and graphic way to sew the seeds of doubt in your audience's mind... is this haunt really safe, or are some of...
  10. Haunted House Trading cards (monsters & maniacs & the walking dead)

    What took so long? FINALLY-- a haunted house trading card series... Not exactly for kiddies either, but a bloodthirsty romp through one of the deep South's largest and darkest haunted attractions,...

    Halloween was slammed. Saturday was a close second... about 75 percent of Friday's Croix.

    Yes, the one thing you HAVE TO HAVE (if you want to protect yourself from becoming homeless) is proper insurance coverage. Check with your agent to see what your liability coverage will actually...

    After all the concern about Ebola, we ended up using it in our show -- and the public loved it. Like they say, if life gives you lemons, make lemonade!

    We had an old sliding door from a railroad freight car that we used for our front door. They didn't know how bad the screams really were until they were inside, and the door slammed shut behind them,...

    All the above is right: It will probably work except that the donations will be lower than you hope. But hey, there is more to it than just the money. It's fun.

    We are discussing two different topics here, really. I do not think Ebola is going to be a concern this year in attendance, but I also think the woman who said she would not put her head in the bag...

    I would not forward negative comments to the other haunt. There is no way to do that without sounding catty. Let them deal with their problems and you deal with yours (coz we all have some sort of...

    The trick is to actually have someone riding the bike, but have them invisible so it looks like it's empty. It fools them every time! ;)

    I disagree that Universal has somehow designed around the problem of Conga lines giving away the scares. Everyone complains about it, at least the vast majority does. The leap frogging helps, but it...

    I heard the commercial costume was expensive but looked quite good-- but was too hot for actors to wear for more than 15 or so minutes. (Something to watch out for!)

    Besides traffic, consider what traffic is on that road. Is it to common route to work (not so good for haunts) or a common route for school (much , MUCH better-- assuming it is high school or...
  22. Include YOUR haunt in the upcoming haunted attraction trading card series

    Most of us have different jobs besides managing a haunt. Mine is publishing trading cards. (Monsterwax, established 1992.) We’ve published all sorts of horror and sci-fi series, and this year, we’re...

    Scary to think one person on the board voted "no." Perhaps they think there are too many businesses in their city. What city is it, anyway?

    Good luck!

    Yes, if the trail double's back, the same actor can attack from the left going one direction, the emerge from the same bushes on the other side (right) wearing a different mask/ hat/ wig.

    Honestly, if you're doing it for the money, don't waste your money. The amount of time and energy you'll spend on it would make MORE money in something far less risky. But notice I didn't say amount...
