Ghost Hunters –
Thanks for your reply, I knew one was coming as you don't miss a thread!
As to this idea attracting idiots, we have been dealing with that since the articles were published in the papers from the Ghost Hunters. I just tell them all we have an exclusive agreement with the WSPS, the group that first came out and recorded the paranormal events. I too was almost impaled at a young age from a unexplained event in one of our barns. This farm is truely haunted as is your house, but that is what got Spookywoods started in the first place. These stories of hauntings do attract new customers, I hear it all the time from people in line. "Is this the house where the fiddler died?" One of the spirts that makes our haunt his home that was wrote about in the news some 20 years ago!
As for the people not wanting to buy tickets due to thier belief system toward the paranormal, they will turn into the word of mouth advertising that gets the hype going.
We do want to entertain the guests as well, that is a focus with this experience. I appreciate your insight to the issues you have discovered with such an attraction.
One of the best known haunts is Eastern State with their Terror behind the Walls attraction. They are featured on Ghost Hunters and other shows all the time. It has become main stream with these type shows and into the pop culture of our target customers.
Thanks for your input, I will be putting a humor twist to the script in places as you suggested.
