    What does Tater know he dresses up like a woman drinking urine of course he's going to love this idea... LOL. He's probably going to the first one in line!

    As for nude beaches and I'm not 110% on this but you are thinking of beaches in Europe where things like sex and drugs and everything is more progressive in thinking. I don't know if there are nude beaches in the US or not I don't think so. I do know they have nudist camps in the US and they get harassed because I knew a guy who was a member.

    I can't see the downside to cashing in on 'Naked and Afraid'. The haunt industry uses things that are in the media all the time.

    This one is brilliant. You get the PR, and you get few, if any, people actually taking you up on it.

    I don't see a downside. Respectability? Please. What's the downside?

    All the negative comments sound like sour grapes and prudery.

    I design and build sets for Pat, so i've got the whole story on this...

    FIRST, this is only open after the park is closed and all other attractions are finished. The only actors in the haunt are 18+ years old and only female. NO touching is aloud and air lines have been run through out the haunt to use instead of touching. All the actors working in the building are approved vets that have respect and will not do anything foolish.

    SECOND, you head into a pre-show building with your group (only YOUR group) and stripe down naked or in underwear. You then enter the haunt with ONLY your group and go through. Please also note that they are going through one of the darkest attractions we have, there are tons of extremely dark rooms and dark hallways. When you come out you get your clothes back and are still hidden in the exit area where you can change back into your clothes.

    Of course your going to have people hate it, and your going to have people who love it. I've heard tons of both, but here is the best part... if you don't like it, DON'T PARTICIPATE!
    At no point will you drive by and accidentally see naked people running around having sex. This is an extremely controlled environment.

    He is getting tons of press for this, its genius PR. If someone robs a bank with one of our silicone masks, we are going to market them as hyper realistic masks and capitalize on it, not stop selling them!

    My .02 on the matter.

    Donít know that I would do it at our haunt, but I must admit; it has garnered a lot of attention. At least 20 of my co-workers and friends have been asking me about it; they heard it on local radio stations and were curious about it. No one ever asks me about haunts outside of Columbus until this came up (it's at least 5 - 6 hours away). I think itís garnered a lot of exposure (no pun intended) and if done correctly; he may end up with the big haunt news story of the year.

    Wishing everyone a fantastic season! Boo to college football night games!!!

    Perhaps all this wouldn't be a deal if this wasn't coming from what seems like a generation long president of the industries' association, the one supposed to be our leader. Also the fact he has a personal reputation of being a super heavy drinker and can be seen in photos dancing on top the zombie army bus like a teenager and being very flirtatious creepy old man vibe etc. seeing and hearing that, then hearing he's doing this nude things just seems seedy and classless. All hail the president and leader of an industry that wonders why it doesn't get much respect.

    I think DA hit the nail right on the head... he said what many already know. Couple more thoughts on this... yes he's got PR for the idea. See the link below and they talked about it on Today Show where all the people on the show said they wouldn't do it and one said they thought it was gross. Now this is the kind of PR you see that can be very negative as well... people think its a naked haunted house because of all the press. Then the haunts themselves lose their identity they lose their main purpose and association with Halloween. I could care less how much press he gets because when he planned this he probably knew he'd get a lot of press... the whole idea is creepy and screams sex offender city. There is nothing what so ever right about this especially if you own and operate a successful attraction then attempting something that will turn off so many wouldn't even be considered.

    I heard that his attraction has been losing attendance over the years, so yeah why not do something crazy to spike people talking about it... great but having people run around naked sends the wrong message to the community the people you rely on for ticket sales. I can see it now...

    Someone says to someone... lets go to that haunt and another person says isn't that the naked haunt, yeah, i'm not doing that... lets go to Bates Motel, Eastern State, Field of Screams, Penhurst Asylum you know a place where you don't go through naked and is scarier. This attraction will give the entire event a bad rap... you see when you read through the PRESS you guys think is so great, they don't talk about his hayride, his other attractions NOPE just the NAKED STUFF.

    That is what you want to be known for???

    Creepy old man vibe? Drinks too much? Really?

    This is your leader leading--he's found a way to exploit a TV series, generate interest in a haunt, and have some fun.

    Should he instead, put on some Sansabelt slacks, pop on a shawl and insist on dark rides with static props and funhouse mazes like in the good old days? Should he act old simply because you want him to?

    Dancing on a bus and having some lascivious fun! Oh!No! Whatever shall we do!?!

    Teen scoop, folks, we are not a 'respectable' industry--as the dog prop flap should have told you. We keep track of people who've vomited or soiled themselves in our haunts as a badge of pride. We gut people, mutilate people and rip demonic babies from pregnant women's loins--all for the thrill of our customers. We enact the most vile scenes we can get away with so that we can be the best, the scariest and the most visited. Respectable for us is giving good value to our customers without killing them(though we will gladly pretend that we have).

    However well we clean up, there are people in the communities we serve that loathe us(and if we can use that loathing to our advantage, we do!) We are tolerated, not embraced.

    To the business community we are a strange fringe industry populated by freaks and weirdos--and that's what we'll always be.

    Because the moment we cease to be that will be the moment our industry dies.
