Thanks for posting this, Drew.
If you have enough funds to do it yourself, go it alone.
Nobody else cares about your goals as much as you.
Even if you start out on good terms with a partner, their interests could change...
Not sure if you were talking to Larry or to me.
In my case, you are right. Regardless of the purchase method, everyone needed to come to the ticket booth for physical, card stock tickets (cash,...
This was our first year.
Online sales accounted for fewer than 4% of our sales (by volume).
We also had groupon and a Cumulus Radio thing called "Sweet Deals" which were a pain in the ass to scan...
Please post links to pictures of what you're trying to sell and prices.
We had a 400+ patron night on Saturday. Our highest here in our first commercial season and higher than any night in our 10 year home haunt history. Still not making our numbers, but it felt good to...
Just got a negative review from a millennial who hasn't visited our haunt because it "looks whack as hell", and, anyway, the best haunts are in Italy.
Our first year commercial, so really no frame of reference.
We're about on par with our last year as a donations only home walkthrough (pretty large scale with 10 years of history).
Sounds like it could be compelling to watch.
Hah hah hah. Probably typing on a smart phone.
Still, I'd think a teacher would take some time to get it right.
What a crappy, helpless feeling that must be.
Here's hoping they get everything squared away and are able to open to a record season next year.
In our area, since we are not in an incorporated city, we fall under the county zoning. It's important, first, to know who controls zoning in that area.
After you've got that, you determine the...
Emailed Allan the other day. Never heard back.
Tickets aren't available on his website, and there is a Baltimore Sun story from 7 days ago stating that he still hasn't been able to cut through the...
I don't even fully understand what the uproar is about.
What in the hell is a "clown sighting"?
Clowns are real things (people dressing up as clowns)...what is now so suddenly ominous about...
There are all kinds of different avenues now for your customers to post reviews online.
Facebook, Yelp, Google, whatever.
I've looked around at some of the Facebook pages for haunted houses out...
Didn't Disney have to tone down their Pirates of the Caribbean display, bowing to PC pressure to stop the drunken pirates from chasing female villagers?
I'm doing better each day.
Just my way of taking a break during the busy season and making Cathy do all of the work ;)
A lot of good horror movies are in the public domain, and can be projected or televised (especially in-doors) to keep your patrons entertained while waiting in the queue line.
Night of the Living...
Yes, people will start targeting similar events next.
Why? Because it worked this time. And it worked this time because it has worked in the past.
Political Correctness has taken taken over...
Thanks for the link.
Also shouldn't take much effort to load pictures.
If your a serious.
Absolutely. Post some pictures or a link to some pictures.
I'm not a haunt actor, but I know from the many haunt tours I've taken that it is hard to scare a haunter.
If you can't scare them, do your best to entertain them.
This is our first year as a commercial haunt.
I am the owner of the business, but my wife, two adult sons, one younger son and I have been building a home haunt together for the last 11 years.
