Ok guys. Long story short, we've gotten everything in line now. We're using our large building as a Monster Museum, which will lead to our haunt, which is going to be 4 x 986 sq ft carport buildings with walkways in between.
Reason: It's going to cost too much to get sprinklers going this year. We just don't have the budget. SO! What I proposed is doing it this way. We're classifying the large building as an exhibit, or museum. It'll have low lighting, no mirrored walkways, no strobes and no mazes. We're allowed to scare in this building, but as long as it's not disorienting.
We were talking about making this our que line. But the thing is, I just think that if we're going to do some really cool sets and monster exhibits, should we make this a que line? Or a walk through?
I don't have any reservations of buying another small $1,000 carport to put a sheltered que line in and put it out front of it all. So, what would you guys think? Should we let the Museum BE the que line? or let them walk through as part of the attraction itself?
I figure this question is simple enough, please, voice your opinion. The building is 6,500 sq ft, but only using about 3,500 of it as the exhibit.
The Fire Marshal LOVES the idea, he said what a great way to think outside the box. He truly believes that we're not just trying to skip around the codes. We told him we're using the codes as a guideline to build within our means.
The inspector is good with it all as long as we buy our carport permits and keep them 25' from property edges, and provide engineering drawing for the buildings.
Thanks a bunch guys,
