    That is a ton of animations, how many actors do you usually have in The Darkness along with these? What about the other haunts you own? The Darkness sounds like a blast to go through.

    Actually not show off at all...

    I didn't even know what we had until Jim emailed it to me, because we're hiring this guy from around here to fix them all, and wire them all up for this season. Once I saw the list I was like WTF...

    Anyway, I thought it would be an interesting topic to see what animations people had in their haunted house.

    Everyone has different tastes, likes, dislikes...hey I want to know what animations do you have in your haunted house.

    I'm sure vendors out there would like to know, so they know what you like!

    I'm interested! Please tell!

    BTW, I didn't type that list it was sent to me by our crew at the haunt.

    Thats why some of the things say hook up the TV's for CGI...blah, blah.

    During the first two weeks that school is back in session , usually nobody comes here (open year-round, remember?) that is when I'll be buying and installing a new heavy-duty plastic garbage bag for one scare.
    It is amazing how one item will get fixed in 2 minutes and the one you thought should only require 2 minutes will take half a day!?
    Of course there is nobody that I could even hire to do my repair work for me if I wanted too.
    This place is a full-time job.
    I wouldn't have it any other way.
    I was just 25 miles away standing in line to order at Wendy's when a girl working there recognised me and said, "You're my hero! I see you every time I have a birthday!"
    "Sort of like one of those reoccurring bad dreams?"
    The elderly woman standing next to me asked me how business was? Then added that her grand daughter comes to my house "all the time!"

    Yes everytime you get another Trailer it seems to magically fill. Well maybe not magically..with lots of sweat and toil. The best part is when you need that one great thing you haven't seen for years at the bottom of the pile. Its like an Archeological dig!

    Haunted Houses abhor a vacuum!

    Hey we only have 5 trailers......that are almost full with 18000 square feet that might have to packed at the end of 2007.

    SOOOO we might be up to 10 or 12 by the time we are done.

    Ben you are correct i went on an expedition earlier this week and found some really cool stuff that i haven't seen in a few years.

    I had someone ask for an inventory when we were thinking about getting out......now you have been to DR while it is running and while we are building......HOW THE HECK CAN WE DO AN INVENTORY?

    One metal shiney thing....
    One...um...ah wooden thing that looks nasty....

    Come on...if we do sell it some day.....I will say...IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT IS THERE....COME ON DOWN.

    Then we hand them the keys and say it needs to be gone in 2 months.

    Hey Larry...your still a show off!!!!!!

    He who dies with the most toys wins! Or do you go by 'he who dies with the most toys still dies'? LOL

    Ken, you know you guys STILL have NOT created a listing on Findhauntedhouses.com. We have your banner up but you don't have a normal listing. Better get on that ...

    As far as show off...I like to toys, there is no doubt about that be it muscle cars, classic toys, or haunted house props and animations. It makes me feel great to build the ultimate haunted house for my customers.

    I makes me happy but not my bank account. I could easily spend a lot less but I wouldn't be as happy!
