Hallow Screams Seeking Indianapolis, IN farm to hold haunt in 2014! –
My name is Will Zettler. I have had a dream to do a haunted house of my own since about age 9. I'm 43 now and have been collecting props over the last 20 years off and on and now have some $25,000 worth of haunted props plus I make a lot of my own stuff, including but not limited to LED prop eyes, fake blood etc... I have worked in several haunted houses since about age 11 when I first worked in a school haunted house. I will be opening my own haunted house in September, 2016 when we find a farm we like here in the Central Indiana area. Currently we live in a area that does not allow home haunts or the such, so we make our own props and videos to sell to help us save money for the event and buy new props for what we need. BTW, I'm not going to ask for a loan, I enjoy being as debt free as possible and our haunt will be the same way.
My question is: Is there anyone near Indianapolis, IN that would like to talk about doing a haunt together? I have the props and the know how, if you or someone else can supply the location and insurance, we can work out a payment option for both of us and we will cover the help for the event as well as all the advertising. We have the web site already at http://www.hallowscreams.com and our props side is at http://www.hallowscreams.com/hse.htm if you want to check it out. We will talk about the money and how to best split it. We would consider changing the name but we already have it publicly known as Hallow Screams, so changing the name wouldn't be an option. We would run the web site and maintain all the sales as my wife would do the tickets and I would manage the online tickets through Eventbrite as needed for the event.
I can provide you layout drawings for the haunts and how I was wanting to put it together. I wanted to put 2 indoor haunts and a corn maze together. If your interested, please let us know, our details are below or message us back here with questions. I'm very serious about this plan if anyone is wanting to jump start our haunt career with this idea, we are open to suggestions and ideas. Thanks for your time, email or write us if your interested.
