http://www.mansionofterror.com/ ;) Sorry to hear you lost your lease. That's a bummer. Here's hoping you'll get a surprise call or email and be offered a new location, if that's what you would want. :D

Thanks Kel!

I've always wanted to go back to graduate school and I knew that I couldn't do the haunted house and go to graduate school at the same time. So losing the lease was a sign for me that it's time to head back to graduate school. It's been an insanely fun ride, lots of work, and a lifetime of learning with the haunted house! I'd go back and do it all over again in a heartbeat.

Best regards,

Norm
