I'm looking for a new building for our haunt. One building I'm looking at was constructed in 1894 and it has two stories. It has a freight elevator shaft that was dismantled years ago. The cost to repair the elevator is $80,000. I would like to operate the haunt on both floors, but I'm concerned about violating the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The past 13 years I've always accomdated wheelchairs in my haunts, but we only averaged 5 wheelchairs per year. It isn't worth spending this kind of money to accomodate wheelchairs. Has anyone else dealt with this?
Any advice? Are there exemptions to the ADA? I've been searching through various web sites, but I haven't found anything helpful yet.
Thanks for your assistance,
