Just wanted to see how everyone did - we had an insanely busy night - breaking the record for how many people we had come through on one night.

Hope everyone else did well too!

The only downside to more people is more stupid people...

I'm going to bed :D

We had one of our best nights ever as well. Everything ran smooth and the house rocked! Can't wait for tonight!

The attraction I work for at Kings Island put through 7K... in 5 hours. Overall, pretty good. -Tyler

We had a RECORD night at our new event Fear Fest/Silo-X.

The Darkness did better than last year, all together over 6,000 between both events.

I don't know exactly how many people went through. But we didn't leave until 2:30 AM. So, yeah, it was VERY busy.

We had a spectacular night! It wasn't quite as busy as a weekend night before Halloween, but pretty close!

OMG, Friday the 13th was HUGE for us. General admission wait was 4-5 hours, Speed Pass 2 1/2 hours. Sat. the 14th was about the same. People in line would yell to the exiting groups "was it worth it?" and they'd say "YES definitely".

What a year!!!!!

We set a new record for single night attendance on Sat the 14th and Fri the 13th was the best ever for a Fri on that weekend.

Things are up in general this year, sounds like it's the same for all of the industry... Yay.

Friday the 13th was not a good night for us. It snowed and we are a hayride so hopefully that was the only reason we didn't have hardly anyone.

We did just about double last year's attendance for the same Friday night; however, we were actually down overall for this past Saturday over the same Saturday last year. Not by much, but we had hoped to at least double again! I hope everyone's last two weeks are HUGE!!!

So far we are up about 50% over the past few years. 1st time we have done Screampass and we are doing pretty good with that. Also, in years past, we charged $10 a ticket but the theater got $2.50 of that. This year we are at $15 witha $1.00 coupon so we are already DOUBLE of what we were at dollar wise at this same point last year. and we keep 100% If that makes any sense...

Personally, I am proud of what we have done. I am getting good reviews and have some great video footage I cant wait to post once the season is done. I would love to post on my site now, but am afraid it would spoil the surprise for any customers.

Our one problem is how cold it is inside the haunt. So cold our blood FROZE overnight and we can see our breath..... :shock:


Now week #3, the busiest of the season tradionally. We are open Thurs-Sunday.

I sympathize with you on that note. We're in a tent, and our make-up and breakrooms are in trailers. I miss being in a building. Not to mention it snowed about an inch and a half today. :roll: Praying it melts by Thursday night.
