    Mark Cuban gave 2 million for 20% of Haunted Hayride LA so they could expand to New York with a haunted hayride.

    Unreal... Larry

    The most interesting part to me was that Mark Cuban, world reknown billionaire investor, said:

    "I think the next generation of entertainment is experiential entertainment."
    "Where people get out of the house and go and get a unique experience."

    And then he jumped at the chance to invest 2 million dollars on a haunted attraction business.

    That was a major endorsement of the future of the haunt industry. I thought it was pretty awesome.

    I think this episode of Shark Tank gave rise to the notion that other people should buy into the industry... there was a group running around Transworld talking to haunts about selling out or selling part of their haunts. Who knows what will come of big business buying into the haunt industry. I personally think its not going to fly because its a passion based industry, there is to much fly by night involved, and way to many people who can't do it right. Its not an easy thing to do as we all know how much work it takes to do it right. Larry

    I would be tempted to sell out and sign contract to stay on for 5 more years
    in management for transition with 1000 hours a year commitment included.

    I find their camp out idea intriguing, but it seems like the liability might be high?

    Is there any update on how this Haunt has grown since their appearance on Shark Tank? I see than Ten Thirty One productions has now gone national with "The Great horror Campout", but does anyone have experience or an inside look at how they've done?
