Damn, did you post 97,000 sq. feet! You building a theme park or a haunted house.lol. I think that the Guiness World Record maybe changing hands soon. Shane if I'm right and that is a old grocery store are you going to use the coolers, meat dept, ect? Very nice, can you post the address? I want to map quest it.

97,000 square feet!?!?! Really Shane? I was feeling really cocky about having 18,000 square foot, but now ........ I am suffering from "haunt envy!"

I am looking forward to seeing what you will do with it. We will have to swing by and check you out later this summer.

Good luck!

Looks like its long days ahead for me for sure! Damon the building was a old mega store chain Brunos, Food World. it had a bank in it, a deli, a florist, and pharmacy. My new neighbors is one of the top two TV stations so that's a match made right there. Also there is a TV startion right across the street! Shane and its who wants to have a building party with me!

Shane,
How awesome.
Man, you have a blank slate in front of you.
You can do anything you want.
Plan a big makeup room.
And a huge shop space so you can build anytime and just install after completion of your build out.
What are some ways you can use the building even when the haunt is closed.
A space for parties, weddings, black light golf, small halloween store, etc...

03-14-2010, 08:35 AM
Wow! Shane, congratulations!!! The possibilities are endless with that much space! Best of all, you will always have paved parking and indoor space for people to wait in line no matter what the weather is like!!! I'm definitely looking forward to seeing your progress my friend!

Shane, you said it was an old grocery store. Just curious, was the inside totally gutted when you purchased it or was there a lot of shelving and aisles still left inside?

Hey Shane, Im not sure if thats going to work buddy, You may need something of a larger scale.........blahhhh!!! Holy crap man thats awsome!!!

graystone
03-14-2010, 01:28 PM
All your comments are always taken to heart with me. Its much needed and most welcomed! Just like when the news broke and the attack and drama that ensued and you guys came to the front of the lines with me!!! I CAN'T THINK YOU ENOUGH!

Coasterbp no there was no shelving thankfully its all removed for me so I can get to go pretty much straight to work. This work this is probably going to be the most stressful ,nerve wracking thing I have ever done and took on but with the Industry's support, the support of my family, friends, and crew and God watching over us I know I will be fine! Shane and its THANKS AGAIN GUY'S IT MEANS ALOT. Shane this time.

03-14-2010, 05:01 PM
Shane, I know in the past there have been rumors that have gone through the industry about a mammoth haunted attraction that haunters nationwide were coming together to build. If there was ever a location that it could be done, you my friend have it! Is there a reality show in your future??? ;)

Enjoy the ongoing journey my friend and know that you have an industry of friends who believe in your dream and in you! :smile:

Good Luck!

03-16-2010, 05:56 PM
Shane, maybe you should keep a diary of everything and put together a book for all of us. Let us know the good, bad and ugly, though the latter two will only be a sentence...

graystone
03-16-2010, 06:14 PM
Mark I am finishing up Easter stuff in the Malls this week and I will get some indoor pics soon. Ron thats a thought I did think of a video not like a detail video but a video of the process from building inspectors, fire marshall, building ect what is everyones thoughts. I just finished my first video of Graystone and will have it at TransWorld. Shane and its what are your suggestions? Shane this time.

xxxdirk
03-16-2010, 06:37 PM
A DVD diary might be a good idea. I mean there is SO much that you are going to go through that anyone thinking of opening a haunt would learn from. You could structure it like Larrys DVDs kinda sitting at a desk with a little clip board taking us through your daily tribulations...

Lord at the work I am like Larry now I just don't know! There used to be a bank in there which we are adding glass for our box office also the pharmacy area with the glass doors will become a gift shop and the last picture with the windows will be for sound and cameras!

Brainstorm is almost done with my new logo and artwork and its AWSOME! They do amazing work. This one is a little different than they normally do and Doug will tell you that. It has the look of a movie poster! I am so feeling it. I hope to have it posted sometime Monday the are making a few changes for me but hopefully Monday I will have it! I can't wait for you guys to see it. I will not post a new thread I will keep everything related to Disturbia here! Shane and its check back soon! Shane this time!

Shane,
This is every haunters dream...I'm truly jealous, but my prayers are with you!
I can't wait to see pics/video of this place! You are someone I truly respect in this industry and I hope to meet you someday (going to MHC?)!
I'd totally love to see a DVD of your process from start to finish to learn from it. I think it would benefit the greater good, even if it added more for you to do! LOL
Take care and get working!!! :)

Kirk

graystone
04-10-2010, 01:39 PM
Kirk THANKS "respect" it a big thing to live up to. Let me say this as happy as I am about this new project it has not came without heartache for me. In the beginning I lost several nights sleep wondering if I was doing the right thing. Here I have been doing haunts for so long always quiet and under the radar then just a few years ago I am put in the spotlight and under the microscope. I had several talks with Paul Johnson ( Atrox ) he has been more than just support for me he has been my true friend through this all as well as his whole crew. I will also say Ben Armstrong as been a good listener too. I have been shocked to realize so may people love and look up to me in this Industry I have fought hard for us ALL. It really hit me this year when it takes a whole day to get down one aisle because everyone wants to shake hands, talk to me or get a photo with me and let me say its truly an honor these guys and gals have offered unconditional support something I thought I could never find from someone other than my best friends and Parents.

On a lesser note when I was at Transworld a few weeks ago people I thought would never turn their back on me did just that. No one in the Industry just some who were close to me during my Graystone days. Some went out of their way to ignorne me. I asked " what have I ever done to these people" maybe they felt I abandoned them. At the end of the day I realize I did not sit them down and tell them everything that was going on or what was about to take place as far as my moving on to open Disturbia and leaving my Graystone days behind me, but I felt that if I ran to them it was like gathering up a posse and it was like saying if you go with me this will be the best for you, somthing I felt would not be in good taste. I wanted them to make their own choices and by that come and talk to me as well as the other parties involvded and let them make their own choice of what they wanted to do as far as stay with new ownership or go with me on this new journey, but instead they all grouped together and pretty much said good riddance at least that's how I feel. The sad part of that is there are two sides to every story and I cannot blame them as some only know what they have been told and I have said nothing so I guess I am alot to blame there, maybe I should have did things different as it sure hurts to know that people I fought for and pulled out of my own pocket to see that they were taken care of totally ignored that fact again I am sure most did not know everything . So yeah in reading this I have to blame myself. I have no hard feelings for these guys if anything I wish them the best and hope that they can feel as though they now have a stake in this Industry. Maybe they think well with Shane out of the way maybe we can feel we have something to call our own. I don't know and at this point should not matter as long as they are happy I am happy for them.

Again could of, would of, should of. But at the end of the day I live my life knowing I did all I could under the circumstances and at the end of the day I know the truth. But from this point on the truth does not matter as there is now a new venture coming out of this for everyone.

I seem to have guided off track here as I wanted to make a point that I don't want anyone to be jealous as I would not wish this on anyone! I made this decision and when all is said and done I know I am going to be happy and fine. I will find a totally new and extended family who I can once again take under my wings as I know at the end of the day no matter what your cast and crew is your life support and back bone of any project. I will say this I will document this project on video from start to finish. You will see my like you never have before I will be totally up front on this project from the good to the bad and at the end of the day I hope this will be one of those videos that people will say this is a must have. I want people to see all the up's and downs getting into this Industry causes.

Again please don't read anything more into this than what it is and is to be and that's when life throws you a kick just get back up dust yourself off and say you know what that was not as bad as I thought it would be. I look forward to you guys going through this journey with me and would not have it any other way. I hope also that if you read this it will inspire you to realize that anything is possible and through friends, family and God the sky is the limit. Shane and its speaking from the heart! Shane this time.

Not sure what you are talking about here Shane but from my dealings with you , you have always been honest and supportive. I know you will do just fine and as they say time does heal wounds...not always all but those who were your friends...your true friends will be there for you and with your personality you will gain many more. As I said earlier great building...I am really jelous and you will do great things with it.

I named the new baby llama princess because of her long eyelashes she's a sweet heart. Damon I guess the nut cracker is guarding the doors LOL. I distressed a buckey today and hung it on the perimeter fence of one of the leopard cages I think he thought it was dinner time. I am bored and playing here at the farm I will post a pic of the cat watching the skeleton tomorrow! Shane and its oh what a day! Shane this time!

The patrons pay, walk in, they are blindfolded (it's dark anyway) they walk, then place their hand in a bowl of soggy "Brains!"
The lights go on and there is the world's largest glass bowl full of wet macaroni!
I mean, you have room for it.
Nobody would ever forget it!
Then when they think it's over, the lights begin blinking, the huge glass bowl tips and buries everyone in macaroni!
You could build an indoor haunted NASCAR track with spookmobiles. I once considered doing a haunted used car lot.
Remember "Escape From New York" when the bad guy popped up from the car's engine compartment? We didn't anticipate that one did we?
Endless possibilitys, an extreme blessing ..or a slight curse?
Let the fun begin!

Thats pretty cool! How many animals do you have? Im an animal lover too but it would be a large undertaking to take care of exotic animals im sure. How many people help you? Are these pics of the property you live at? Just wondering. This is all very interesting. Do you take in animals that have been mistreated or hurt? I knew you had these animals but when you start showing pictures in takes on more meaning.

04-16-2010, 02:26 PM
First picture is some buckeys I aged! Second pictures are of my Ringtailed Lemurs (Adam and Eve)enjoying the day here at the farm. Jason no I am not a zoo or open to the public and no I do not take unwanted animals most of the time I have made a few exceptions. All my cats have been bottle raised from 5 days old by me! I am a private collector of 13 years! Damon I would guess over 300 animals and birds yes these were taken at my place today! Shane and its I am still bored! Shane this time!

04-16-2010, 07:34 PM
That's awesome Shane! You should start a separate thread about these animals and any others you have. I think people would really enjoy it. How many people help with all the care of them? I would like to know how you got into getting so many cool species and do you need special licenses for each one.

Thanks for posting, they are cool as hell, I want to see more.

Eric

graystone
04-16-2010, 08:17 PM
Actually many years ago one of my first haunts had one of my tigers in it but I have aged alot and would no longer do that now. Eric I have 5 people and myself that take care of them. I hold every major license that a zoo does, U.S.D.A. and U.S.D.I ( for the endangered animals). In 1986 at 17 I was the youngest person in the United Stated to hold these license. I will get around at some point and post all the animals I have and yes that would take a whole new thread! I have trained hundreds of animal control officers how to handle these. I DO NOT ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO HAVE THESE AND ITS IMPOSSIBLE NOW ANYWAY. They require lots of time and money but for me they have been such a part of my family now without them I probably would die of loneliness. Shane and its I am glad I let everyone peek into my world!

Or have you not gotten your flying monkeys to keep their Depends to stay on yet?
Guerrilla Glue? Tried that?
The load in those Depends gets pretty heavy, requiring more wingpower to lift off the ground.
If I catch them circling my place again it won't be a Depends-diaper 9-11 here, my Anti-aircraft crews have orders to shoot first and duck later.
We have the old Circus human cannoball cannon with Toe-doe loaded up, helmet and protective gear on, ready to bite and kill! He hates flying monkeys!

Can you imagine the public response to that, as a haunt advertisement, 25 years ago?

Great Looking work from Brainstorm Studios.. Should draw alot of attention in the Huntsville market.. Fresh and Smart....

Guys from the bottom of my heart THANKS! I really mean it. I was not for sure how this would be recieved because it's a little outside the box for some as well as me and Brainstorm. As I have said this has been a very trying transition for me and it will continue to be. I have been able to get through this and do it because of this Industry I HAVE NEVER MET A MORE SUPPORTIVE GROUP OF PEOPLE THAN YOU! I am so proud and honored to call you guys my friends and extended family! This year TransWorld was like a big family reunion for me!

Let me say this as many of you know and can tell by this thread I have tons of animals and I have said that the only thing in life that will hurt you is a human a snake rattles before it strikes, a dog barks, a lion roars very animal in the world will warn you before they attack all except a human! Always remember it's the truth! Thanks for all the support and kind words its really needed and well recieved! Shane and its from the bottom of my heart! Shane this time.

Really like him Shane! How did you make the "skin" for him? One thing I would suggest to to get rid of some of the bulk around his neck. He's, for the most part, quite skinny and the added bulk around the neck seems like a bit much.

Great job anyhoo!

Knocking out small stuff. These are pictures of a private party room that will be at Disturbia the room will hold 75 to 85 people. This room will be for birthday parties, VIP parties, Halloween parties. When the walls are done I got a guy coming in to do some airbrush artwork on the walls then I will put in the tables and chairs. If you can see right about the white stripe which will soon be Orange there is a neon light that goes all the way around the room! Shane and its party time! Shane this time!

One thing that comes to mind though, are you sure you wont have any troubles with copyrights? I know theres a movie named Disturbia too...

I can't wait to follow his progress and see the haunt at it peak in a couple of years.

I dislike haunted houses with 3 or 4 mediocore haunted houses.
Much rather see 1 huge good haunted house.

Were thinking of combining our two houses into one.

Because people end up waiting in line the same amount of time it is just broken up over the number of houses you have.

Everything looks amazing shane!

I agree with Nick people throw 3-4 haunts out there and they really should consolidate and make one or two really good ones.

Long lines can be a great thing! I think that if people drive up to your haunt & see you have a long line they will wait like all the rest. Our place has long lines each season, I know if it were me driving up to the haunted house & I saw the lines I'd most likely be thinking 'this is going to be bad a$$! just look at the number of people waiting to get in!'
I believe if the crowd is small people driving up may think 'is it really worth stopping to check out?'
We have a few actors outside that do a great job entertaining our guests, they get the patrons all pumped up & ready for what awaits them inside.
Last season was my last one acting, in knowing this I quickly went to the front of the building in full costume (Dr. Shock) & scared several people waiting in line before finally going back inside! It was incredible!

I dunno its all fun. Many have asked to see more work photos., Honestly the first haunt wall has yet to go up! I was misdirected on some paper work and its one of those things " oh were sorry or oh I am sorry" either way the Firemarshall, Building Inspector, Zoning, Planing all have been more than nice and supportive so its hard to get an attatude when you got people helping and working with you. I have a big crew coming in for the walls which should be very soon now so they will get them knocked out real quick.

Tim from House of Horrors said it would be late next month ( July) if I understood right before he even got in his building and hes going to open. Eric from Haunted OverLoad moving and being behind its just how it is in this business ups and downs but I have said it 1000 times over " If it were easy everyone would be doing it!" I am not stressing I have the support of this Industry your love and compassion towards me keeps me focused and I love you all for that! Without you guys I could not do this I don't think.

Remember I only brought a few of my old family from my old haunt and those were the ones who were my spine and backbone. The others stayed and I would think as much time as they have had they should be ready to open if it were today if not then thats not saying much. The point is time is our ememy and you can only do what time allows and NOT ONE DAY MORE! Anyway pics will roll in soon and again GOD BLESS EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU FOR ALL THE SUPPORT YOU HAVE SHOW HERE AND IN YOUR CALLS AND EMAILS! Shane and its I love you guys! Shane this time!

Just keep plugging along Shane. You have a good plan and it's all coming together. That's awesome about the freezer doors! Thanks for even taking the time to post photos of your progress with all you have going on. It's great to see the project and hear about each stage as it happens.

Shane those freezer doors are AMAZING. I cannot wait to see when you get stuff up. I tell ya - you are so right about the support of this site and everyone on it. I come on here daily to get pumped and ready to haunt (I am losing steam quickly)

To all the haunts I know about opening (or re opening this year) IE Disturbia, Haunted Overload, Arx, Front yard Fright - Keep with it guys! You do amazing work! Thanks for all the kind words you send on my end!

Death Row aquired one of these beauties last year sometime, heavy as hell! Ours wasn't on wheels though! We got ours from an old crematorium (right spelling? oh well) that was being gutted from the inside itself to eventually become a church. Funny cause the outside already looked like a church! We also got a few cool looking coffins as well as 2 baby coffins. Never seen any THAT small before! Anyways Shane, SCORE on your table!

Also just trying to help make the "Are you a christian" thread disappear again, even if only temporarily. No I am not, BUT I still believe in God. I wouldn't be alive if it were not for HIM. I don't see what my religion or lack of in this case has ANYTHING to do with my love for Halloween / haunted houses OR the Halloween forum.

Yeah I got 2 porcelain tables (weight about 300lbs) that came from a funeral home too. These are fiberglass tables I assume for rolling bodies around they weight just a little more than a regular stretcher! As far as the thread as much as I want to respond more to it esp some of the last post I want. Shane and its we need to keep the thread but its time to let it die! Shane this time.

Thanks for all the emails, text and calls. Here is the deal I did not get the right paperwork in on time it was part my fault and part the cities for misinformation and part the company I am dealing with. We all worked together and have got it submitted and its all to do with the parking lot of all things and because of that I can't get my building permit yet ( key word yet). Yeah this sucks and makes it harder but I got determination it's just something to deal with. I knew this when I moved but again I had to free myself from the past headaches! I am still getting to do painting and things like that I have talked with the builder and as soon as the paper comes back I will put 2 shift crews on 3 if I have to!!! Down side I still got to wait 3 weeks but if Tim can get in his building in mid Aug and still open there is no reason I cant get in in July and still open!

The way I look at it had I started in January it still would not be what I wanted again I am starting from the ground up but at the end of the day you do what you got to do. Part of me want's to wait a year and the other says Shane you will not be happy if you dont thats just how it is. I am determined to pull off the impossible! I know my friends at Atrox has been working and so has all my other haunt buddies you know who you are. Again my haunt friends support has me driven, well that and the fact that I am sure there is a few out there that would be happy if I didn't but that's their problem and worry not mine!

Lastly to all you haunt guys that's called and said tell me when and where and we will be there I may just take you up on that! I assure you a nice room and a fun time with plenty to eat for sure, again it makes me feel like the biggest person in the world and its all because of you guys!

We have been doing filming and all this will make for a great informative video not to mention there may be a TV show to come out of all of this its a whirl wind guys! Again I will keep you posted and there will be more pictures and walls to show soon! I have also decied to use more vacume forum to help catch up and the contractor is going to start building wall panels to help play catch up that way when given the go ahead we will be one step ahead so I DO HAVE A PLAN! Keep me in your thoughts as you always do and again I really love you guys! Shane and its a guy with a plan! Shane this time!

Just keep plugging along Shane. I thought about waiting a year as well but you lose so much momentum that way. We are all behind you and some of us in the same boat. Thanks for updating us on your progress. You have a lot of support and good looking stuff that will come together fast once you get the paperwork.

Shane, keep going dont give up!!

I am new to the boards here,but I love, love, love Halloween..I have been designing low cost Halloween items for a company in China for many years, they sell the items i design to walmart,biglots walgreens..

by reading your post these past few months, you have inspired me to do a haunted house on the west coast, I have started working on some high end props for my haunted house...i am building and sculpting most of the stuff myself, but i will not do the haunted house till 2011...

I log on to this site everyday,(sometimes 3-4 times a day) just to read your posts and see how your coming on your haunted house...

You can get it done!! put good thoughts out there and it will happen, keep going dont give up!!

Maybe i will see you at some of the haunt trade shows next year...

Its post like yours from total strangers who make my day. Dont get me wrong I love all my Industry friends and they all know that but to recieve a post like that just makes me feel really great its hard to even explain just to know your thoughts and how you feel towards something I did or said is the best thing in the world to me and much needed.

Some said I was crazy to walk away from a top attraction ( hey I am Insane Shane) but again all the fame and money in the world don't make one happy trust me on that. I needed to feel free and to be able to express myself without worrying what someone might think and now just to know when I do something I know it's for me and NO ONE ELSE!!! is AWSOME! When I buy something and spend my OWN money its for me and I don't have to share that with anyone! Again thank you for that post man I needed that! I brought Shaun my best friend, Justin, Michelle, Sherry, Corey, David ( who is truly my right hand man), Dennis and the Corn Stalkers and some of the Killen Fire Dept with me as well as my family and employees with my company and those are the people that mean the world to me but this Industry has taught me that I brought even more with me and thats a world of new and old friends who I never even realized were coming with me! They are my rock and support!

I also got Ben, Paul, Tim, Eric, and tons lending much needed support the list of names goes on and on and on I am one of the luckest guys in this Industry!

Lastly thanks you to Eric to know you and Tim and a few others are in the same boat with me just makes it alot easier! Shane and its all I can say is WOW! Shane this time!

Ok wanted to give you guys a sneek peak at my first icon character the "Disturbing Insane Shane" Everyone knows that I love my good friends Wes and Ken at CFX and I will always use them but my good friend Brett hooked me up with this insane sculptor and mask designer Juan and let me say hes good! He took my thoughts and turned it into Disturbia's first official character. I wanted a morphing look and as you can see one side is differnet than the other with a suttle change over ! We got to add a little blood around the exposed brain area ( kinda hard to see in the pic but its where the stuff is oozing out of his head) and a little around the mouth and a lil here and there but not too much and a few swatches of hair here and there and were done! This is one of a few Juan will be doing for me as well as his first time to exhibit at TransWorld 2011. I will be introducing you more to him later and I might just share him ha! Again thanks Brett for introducing me to him and thanks Juan for bringing him to life for me! Shane and it's watch out guys Juan is up and coming! Shane this time!

My House would not be anything like it is if I had a partner. I really lucked-out when his conservative Wife nixed partnership offer!
Infact I think it would have totally flopped!
So when you said that your filming in your new place might become a reality show..does this mean you will be practising temper-tantrums as you throw motorcycle parts around?
There it is! A new haunt character!

Love the mask!! I like the way it is morphing into something more evil. The cysts that will soon give birth to horns are a very nice touch. We can all have two personalities just depends on how others look at it or us...... Pretty twisted and very creative. Very good work!! I am amazed every day at the talent that is found within our group. We are a creative bunch thats for sure!! Keep it up!

Plugging away as usual - Just had our walk through with Minispotlight.com
Highly reccomend them.

We are about 80% done with construction, dressing and detailing. Then focussing on all of our actor coordination, training and finish up our costume/icon characters.

Got some custom sound done from a guy here - Pretty cool stuff. Also our first commercial is up. Check it out on our thread. Cannot wait to see more pics of your place!

Hey Shane is disturbia and Arx Mortis the same haunt?

Hopefully he doesn't mind me answering for him, but Distrubia is run by Shane and Arx Mortis is run by Shane's former business partner - At least that's my understanding. The two of them used to run Graystone Manor together.

I got Scarefactory, Edge, some stuff I got from Jon all coming in next week or late this week also got more vacume panels coming in as well! The website looks amazing and it should be done in a few days as well!!!! Chris is kickin azz on the site!

I also wanted to see what you thought of my definition of Disturbia is. It has been driving me crazy so I got on the bus told Steve to drive and I would come out from the back when I was done lol. I could not come up with a story line I liked so I thought hell why not make a definition of Disturbia and go that route! So here ya go I am using it tell me what you think. There is no word Disturbia in the dictionary so here is my definition.

Disturbia....... Is a mental disturbance, an insanity so powerful that it controls and dominates ones mind........
Disturbia has a dark meaning to it. It's much more than being scary or creepy. Disturbia is about mind control, fear, phobias a deep darkness so unrealistic that your mind goes totally insane. You lose control of reality. Enter DISTURBIA where there are worse things than death! Shane Dabbs. There ya go! Shane and its what do you think? Shane this time!
