I am looking to purchase customized tickets for our haunted attraction.
Where is the cheapest place to purchase these?
What are your thoughts on using wrist bands and is there a cheap place to customize these?

Thanks

We use wrist bands. If they glow people seem to like them better.

Google places. We've yet to go with the same place twice because we can always find a better deal by searching for it.

Last year 3000 wrist bands was $55.

Yeras ago a haunt we worked on used roll tickets that came in plastic enclosures for ease of dispensing them and to avoid theft. Anyone know who this was?

A couple of places I would recommend:

www.wristband.com - great people and prices

www.admitoneproducts.com - never a problem dealing with them and they offer an IAHA discount.

Admit One also sells the ticket holders. You can see them at http://www.admitoneproducts.com/Accessories/Roll+Ticket+Holders/

We use sticker tickets ("They don't always stick good to leather or vynl..so don't put them on your underware!")
Just like the ski lodge lift tickets the customer is wearing them. Disclaimers included.
They also provide after-advertising as people collect them (they come in different colors for different nights) and business does come here as people see them stuck to car fenders and restroom walls and dorm doors.
The "art" on them makes them distinctive, a little pterodactyl with wings (boney wings) spread. ..he's smiling, even though a stiff, boney beak could never ever smile now could it. Another unique feature!!

Hey guys.....here is alittle idea.....Elswarro is launching a new product in about 10 days that might perk alittle interest.....

Its called Chainsawchips.com and we specialize in custom haunt and horror tokens. These tokens are actually casino quality ceramic poker chips.

I am not going to get to far in depth as of yet, since my boss will kill me for spilling the beans.......but these are going to be really cool! We've already sent some to Tony W. at Spookywoods and he loved them!

Stay tuned for the site launch and in the mean time, check out our Scream Queen collection at http://www.myspace.com/chainsawchips

We will be taking orders at Transworld! (even better....if you want chips for transworld, email gina at gina@chainsawchips.com and she will give you all the details!)

Lets see the nightmare uses both wristbands and two different customized tickets. The wristbands were for our Mess Hall Parties. Blue ticket for the Rip customers (ones that skipped the line) and Orange ticket for the ones that had to wait in line.

..and the smouldering tickets with an ocassional lick of flame are for the customers that you want to hurry through the house because you can't tolerate them any longer!

We use different wrist bands for different attendance.

I like to see the return people. Last year the record was 6 on one person. With his permission we made a special tombstone for him that will appear this year. We decided that who ever is our most repeat customer is going to have their own tombstone each year :) It will be interesting because you HAVE to keep the wrist bands on all year to win!

I do not understand the concept of wrist bands. What is to stop a customer from going through the haunt, cutting the band off and then giving the band to his buddy to use? A little piece of scotch tape and TADA, free pass to the haunt......
"Lucy, you got some splaining to do!"

That works only if your gate person is asleep. Since most of us send people in as groups you have a person there to talk to them at least 30 sec. RIght. We have our gate person mark through the number on the band. Some bands have tabs you can tear off showing they have been used. I go the marker way because it's cheaper.

In three years never had a problem.
