Thank god Allen is okay. And my heart and prayers goes out to the family who lost a loved one. It is never easy to deal with such a loss so my prayers are for them.

As for the haunt. It is good to hear the haunt buildings are okay .

As I'm sure Allen is busy at the moment, maybe I can help clarify some things. The buildings and property that houses Screams is said to be untouched. Also, Allen's Trail is located on the back end of the property and from my understanding is far from where the blaze was. The 7 structures that burned were primarily in an area toward the entrance that the public rarely see's both during Scarborough and Screams. As for their lost one I will not comment. Its a sad day here in Texas...

It's sad when these stories come about, fire at any level is a very devistating even when it takes a life.

Thoughts and prayers are going out!

So sad to hear about this. I am definitely praying for everyone, especially the friends and family of the one who was lost. And I am thanking God Allen is ok.

Second fire this year that wiped out a ton of equipment. Yeah that really sucks. Sounds like from what I read someone lived there and the fire started in their living space... could have been from smoking, left something on who knows. Yeah that hurts!

As I have shared I know first hand how devastating a fire can be, so much more tragic with a life lost. My thoughts go out to all involved and hope for as pain free of a recovery as possible

Thank you all for the well wishes, the good vibes are appreciated. Been a rough day, morso for others than for me. My co worker will be missed he really enjoyed the haunt side (many on crew prefer the Ren side) and he was one of the most interesting men I have ever met. The crew we have are handling the situation very well. We have lost much but the SCREAMS side of the park was untouched.
Again thank you haunt family for your concern and well wishes
