We use what we feel is necessary to pull off the scene. I personally love gore having grown up on it (Fangora magazine was bed time reading for me). I mean to say that gore shows a lack of imagination is just plain not true, I dare say any of us would accuse Tom Savini or George A. Romero as being unimaginative. I think any well thought out, designed and constructed scene that elicits fear or visions of the macabre is as imaginative as any other scene in a haunted attraction. Our goal is to entertain our customers, and get them to come back and bring friends. If gore is what keeps them paying then by all means gore away, if fluffy bunnies sneaking around behind rockers keeps them paying hey I will be the first line them up. Keep you customers satisfied... isn't that the ultimate goal?
