Haunted Attractions For Sale! –
Hey there Fellow Fright Fans! Well, I have some potentially exciting news to share with all of you. Please read through this entire message before you react. Here goes...
Lee and I have decided to sell the Raycliff Attractions. There are a number of reasons for this, primarily though, Lee and I have new ventures that we plan to pursue, which will require a great deal of time, effort, energy and dedication, and we have family related priorities that need our attention.
First and foremost we are offering the Raycliff Attractions to members of the Raycliff Fright Team. Purchasing the attractions, which will include the property, buildings, walls, sets, props, Raycliff owned costumes, makeup, equipment, hearse, trailer, website, etc., a completely well-established turn-key business, will require collateral and a 10% of purchase price down payment investment. It would be our wish that Becki Gooch would remain the Fright Team Manager, as we believe this would guarantee the continued success of the business. Should a member or members of the Raycliff Fright Team not be able to purchase the business, we will then pursue buyers from within the haunted attraction industry and we will highly recommend that they also retain the present Fright Team and Fright Team Manager. Lee and I have discussed this with Becki and she's definitely interested in staying on in a partner of management capacity. She's also interested in discussing potential partnership agreements with others who may be able to contribute to the business purchase. I think it goes without saying that this is a very difficult decision for Lee and I. We have poured our blood, sweat and tears, literally on all accounts, into this business and we feel that we belong to an incredible family we've grown to know and love. This will definitely be like adopting out a baby we've given birth to and our sincere desire it to see it adopted into good hands so that the Raycliff dream can continue to thrive and grow!
At this point the wheels of motion have not stopped, in fact they've picked up momentum and there is huge potential for this year to be the most successful year yet! If you are interested in learning more about the possibility of purchasing the Raycliff Attractions, please email us at info(at)raycliffmanor(dot)com and let us know. If a member or members of the Raycliff Fright Team will not be purchasing the attractions, we will then contact those who indicated an interest. Once again, the opportunity is first being given the Raycliff Fright Team Family. We aren't in a position to carry the note and because the current loan is an SBA Loan, the lender will require only qualified buyer/s with the ability to invest the required down payment and who have the necessary collateral, above and beyond the Raycliff property and buildings that may be required to secure the loan.
As far as Transworld, we are still planning to attend and I will be registering Lee and I, and a number of the Raycliff Fright Team this week. We're all very excited and looking forward to spending time with our extended haunt family!
Like I said already, Raycliff will continue and the members of the Raycliff Fright Team are the life blood of the dream, or should I say scream?! I'm very fortunate to have developed such amazing relationships with such an awesome Fright Team!
Lastly, as I've mentioned already in another post concerning the consulting services I'm now offering, I plan to keep my toes deep in the haunt waters. Actually, Lee and I have both come to the realization that we both still want to be involved in haunting for as much of our lives as we are able. As they say, itís in our blood! We do, however, have other ventures we want to pursue as well, and we're allowing things to come together as they may. Temporarily stepping away from haunt ownership will allow me to more effectively serve the haunt community/industry in a consultation capacity. The past 8 years of haunting has been an incredible journey and we're very excited about what the future holds as well.
If you're not making it to Transworld, don't forget to come see me at MHC in Ohio!
