    Hey everyone does anyone have any tips on how we can keep out a person. The story is that a kid that every year comes into our haunt, messes up something or breakes something. He even ran through the tarp where is had no hole and it fell down. By the end of the haunt last year we had 4 broken props not including the tarp. So please any help!!

    I don't know how old this kid is, but you could tell him that he's not allowed without a parent or guardian. You could also tell him and the parent or guardian ahead of time this year that anything he breaks, he must pay to replace, or post a sign to that affect, or make him sign a waiver to that affect before letting him enter. That may discourage him from even entering.

    Well this kid is about 16 and he is always walking around with his skater friends smoking and even tearing up peoples yards year around. But on halloween he is always walking by himself and two friends.

    How about posting a scary looking security guard in uniform out front who tells him that he and his friends are not welcome, and if he still insists on coming in, let that guy tell him before he enters that he will be paying for all that he harms or breaks?

    I dont know an exact answer to your question, but a few years ago I had a kid who did the same thing...we had police there directing traffic and they took care of him real fast. the only think was he would go through with a different mask everytime and it was hard to tell who it was...

    The waiver idea sounds good, keep your eyes peeled this halloween!

    No Masks should be one of your rules, for safety (visibility and tripping) if nothing else.

    This is just the beginning of an idea and you can work on it to make it fit your needs, but what if you told him that no kids are allowed without a parent or guardian, and if he got upset about that, you could tell him (or have the security guard tell him) that if he's too old not to need a parent or guardian with him, then he's too old to be out trick-or-treating (and doing destructive things to other people's haunts). You could have a sign posted somewhere out of the way to show him, but only enforce it for undesirables, perhaps? Sorry, but I'm new to this, so I'm just sort of thinking out loud. Maybe others can help with this.

    I know ths may seem a bit extreme but he will certainly remember it!!!
    Hire someone who is in costume to wait inside the haunted house and when the kid comes in beat the tar out of the kid. Let him know it is from all the neighbors who is tired of him causing damage..

    Crown Control: Use someone to walk in behind potential problematic customers. As soon as a customer screws up, your Crowd Control Person Lights up their flashlight and escorts the patron out of the house. We use it at a professional haunt on really busy nights, but it would probably help a home haunt every night, since people have a harder time withstanding the temptation to break something in a smaller venue.

    You could have actors follow him and beat the crap out of him if he destroys anything. Lol. I had the same issue. I told him he couldn't come in and sent him away. Now I pay a constable $100 for the night to discourage any misbehavior.
