Your facility and haunt design has a lot to do with the way your inspector looks at your project. The "Flammability rating" for your facility and specific words you use when talking to an inspector can play a huge factor in how an inspector views your project. If you tell him you're gonna be in this facility for a few years, he'll be thinking "permanent structure". Inspectors that are in cities that have a lot of seasonal business are more apt to have more experience in this area.
Its been my experience that most inspectors are ignorant to codes that pertain to "amusements" and instead of them taking a chance on what they don't know or haven't see before, they fall back on what they do know "traditional building codes for residential and commercial buildings".
The fastest way to pass an inspection is to do what the inspector says you have to do to pass inspection.
The best way to teach an inspector something new is to ask them about something their not sure of, (be inquisitive, not pushy) a good inspector will go back and do some research on the issue, I've even had a few admit to having to call a bigger city for an answer. If they're honest they'll get back with you with a few options. There ARE codes for temporary structures and amusement or entertainment type structures.
I hope I've explained this well enough and not just added confusion to the conversation.
