. You will get alot further in your haunt if you think of Nightmare as a resource and not competition. I did the same thing when I first started. Im close to Terror on the Fox (one of the biggest and best haunts around) and after my first year I realized (with the help of tattoo) they are not my compitition. People tend to go to more then one haunt a year. Use them as a resource to help better your haunt. I've learned the majority of what I know so far from talking to tattoo and the rest of the TOTF gang.
compete against Nightmare on 13th in their market
