Larry's been good enough to show us pictures. How about you? No BS about "it has to be experieced", that means it can't stand the scrutiny. What do you say everybody? Should Shane put up or shut up?

Out of 1000 haunts across the US I have seen very few post pics. Here is Graystone Manors address 4051 Hwy 72 Killen Alabama 35645. Our new commerical will be up on the site soon as well as its being updated. You may want to check it out. I tell you what Allen when you get the other 90% of the haunts across America to fill up Larrys boards with pics of their Attractions I will jump in line too. Also even though I dought it would be enough to hurt our attraction why would we? Why do I want to post what people are coming to see? Take Larry for example nothing aginst you Larry but if I visited the Darkness today I already know what alot of the rooms look like! Dont you like to be surprised Allen? But until then its 15.00 to experiance 45,000sqft or a pro Haunted Attraction. Also you might want to talk with Paul at Atrox and his crew as they visited us this past Halloween ( as always Atrox is over the top and I cant express enough the respect I have for him and his crew) Also there is a new haunt that just reopened its called the 13th Hour they made mention to my haunt as they visited Graystone. NetherWorld, SpookyWoods,13th Gate and a couple of others. I believe he expressed what he thought of Graystone. Something like Awsome best I can remember! ( and again guys Thanks!) Allen if you own a haunt you will get a free fast pass and admission. Until then I am sorry but just like many singers, actors, plays, ect if you want to see them or us feel free to pay us a visit. Have a Good Day and its Shane experiance the haunt yourself Shane this time!

Shane,

Go to Walmart and buy a digital camera, walk over to your haunted house and take some pictures, then come here click on the paper clip tab and start uploading them.

Hint... take the pictures at the lowest rez so you can upload them faster.

I think this is a gret idea... I'm waiting, and I really want to see them.

Seriously.

But since somene started this thread...lets see EVERYONE start uploading photos of their attractions.

When I posted to this thread I didn't notice the user name of the person who started it... that user was deleted. Shane you love to stir up drama, and as I've said many times why not just share info rather than always being the person who questions every little thing.

Lets see you share some photos, a video anything.

I will tell you this my friend by you NOT sharing your videos and photos you are only hurting yourself, because customers expect videos and photos now on your website and question your attraction when you don't produce them.

There is a nice big picture of the outside of The Ravens Grin Inn on my website's first page...but So many people have always told me that any picture they have seen of my house doesnot do it "justice" compared to when they see it in person.
I sure don't have an inkling of what anybody elses' place is like or how they operate it (like Shane's).
My entertainment here is generated via my storytelling and persona with the room and props as ancillary devices but all adding to and helping the total experience to be what it is.
The numerous personal mental and emotional revelations commonly experienced here by most customers all combine to paint an emotional and mental experience very unusual by most common standards.
You could have a picture of a room,and some props, and my face and the end influence from seeing these three items together would no doubt be a negliable and quickly forgotten experience for most.("He's the man! It was Him, Officer!" would be the exception.)
Isn't live entertainment what we all are supposed to be renting to our customers?
..and what does it take to adequately begin to capture the essence of a live performance? More than one good camera, sound equiptment, technitions who know their stuff and direction, anything less and you are fooling yourself, but your half blind and deaf grandma or neighbor lady might be impressed?

Its not my style bro. But I will tell you I do like the pics you have posted as far as the Darkness goes. I will only tell you this one time! It really looks great! There I said it! Now when you get the chance take a trip down to see me and I will take you to see Paul and the guys at Atrox then we all might run over to Bens! Larry on a serious note. Drop me an email or hell you got my number I have a serious question to ask you. And like Larry says hell if ya wanna post! Then post away. Its your option to post or not! Shane

First, good luck to the guy who started the thread and then got deleted (because of his username) ever getting back in. It took me forever. I'm working on getting past that...

Next, I do understand about not wanting to post pictures and videos of builds in progress because they look so much different while in progress than when complete. The one I've invested in is amazing and continues to improve tremendously every year, and I keep making more money which is why I invest again every year. However, right now it doesn't look nearly as impressive as it will closer to September, but it's still one of the best around.

And even when you do post photos and videos, most of the public (and even the new members who have been welcomed on the website but are waiting the 2-3 day period for Larry to make his educated guess about whether to activate their membership) cannot see the photos or videos or even many avatars. To see what they see, please try this. Log out of the Forums, and then view all the threads to see what all you can and cannot see. That's what most of the public and new members that have not been activated can/cannot see. For some reason, some of you are able to post a few pictures/videos, that can be seen, but even Larry's pictures are not available for public access.

Just trying to contribute...

Well, if this account/username was really inappropriate, the entire thread should have been erased, not just the user account… unless, of course, this whole thing was an inside job to discredit Shane. LOL

If you don't post pictures of your haunt, people will think you're ashamed of it. We might think it's just black walls with some store bought animations in it. It nas got to be more than that. C'mon Shane, show off your haunt. Prove how great it is by showing pictures of this haunt of yours.

graystone
07-20-2008, 09:09 PM
But I will describe it. Its great every year after halloween I go to Wal-Mart and buy all the decorations. The walls took hours to put up and the plastic still has wrinkles in it. In one room I have 6 plastic skeletons and a plastic pumkin. One room is decorated like Christmas with a big plastic santa and snowman in it. I put some of that cheap Wal-Mart blood on them. Now there ya go!!! Shane

QFT

Shane post some pics damn-it. How bout a pic of the outside, nothing fancy.

Its like this, do you think you would go see a movie without seeing at least one preview, poster, or pics of the film before going to see it?? I think NOT. Same goes for your haunt, without pics, or video your haunt doesn't interest me. You NEED to show me WHY your haunt is a must see attraction. You can't just convince us with words. That does fly with me, or many others.

So Shane post some damn pics already.

FearSeeker
07-20-2008, 10:13 PM
Actually, Mr. $49.95 :)

The fact that Shane isn't showing everyone anything may actually get you all to show up at his haunt just to see if it really exists. I think many of you would have gone to see the new Batman movie just because of all of the hype you had HEARD about it, even if you hadn't SEEN a single preview or poster.

Oh, and Shane, you forgot to mention that you have scattered used female toiletries all over the place to add to the effects. ;) Yuck!

I did erase the user, but I didn't erase the thread because as you can see a lot of people are interested in seeing some photos of Shanes haunted house.

We're not going to allow a poster calling anyone a putz...even though it may be true! LOL ONLY KIDDING!

C'mon Shane post some pics and lets go!

Your a smart cookie you should have been posting a long time ago. As I stated were redoing the website. Not that I need to I don't think because we have a great customer base but damn you guys are so damn demanding!!!!!! Again Fear your very smart and I can see your comments and thoughts are going to be an asset here. Shane and its plastic pumkin Shane this time.

go to his myspace page,
its got a quite a few pics,
a few of the outside of the building and people going through it
dosent show any rooms scenes or props.
my two cents are that you should add more pics or no pics because to me those pics other than the entrance would no encourage me to go to your haunt.
just a suggestion.
oh and i love the talley of ambulance calls and stuff lol

Your statement is false. Try using a movie title that no one has ever heard of. For example a movie coming out called "The Meat Train". Would you go see it. Probably not, you know nothing about this movie other than it's name. Same goes for Shane's haunt. All I know is the name of his haunt. Doesn't make me want to go see it, I don't know enough about it.

Furthermore, pics and videos of people haunts entice people to go see the haunts. I for one, enjoy seeing everyones pics and there progress. Will I ever be able to see all these haunts? Probably not, but seeing the pics, inspire me to try.

So I see Shane has posted a pic. Congratualtions, you have a very nice and scary looking facade.

FearSeeker
07-21-2008, 02:06 PM
I, for one, think the actual graystone website is great. I especially like the intro. And no, I'm in no way affiliated. You have already seen pictures and videos of the haunt I've invested in and if the voting process was really fair, then without a doubt, it should be in the top 13. Maybe someday we'll know.

OK, then if that's true, why wouldn't you want the public and not just registered users (with activated accounts) to be able to see all of the pics and videos posted at this site? Don't you want the public to want to go see everyone's haunts?

If your in a area that has 50 haunts yes I can see the reason to post pics, videos, ect you need that to keep up with competition. Those people need to go the extra mile to pull in people. Our economy is now making us look and shop for better deals eye candy sells especially if your in an area that is flooded with haunts. We are the only Haunt in North Alabama. Why? because we were the only haunt in our area that could afford a sprinkler system, emergency lights and all the other things that goes with special attractions. You need to go 2 hours South to the next Haunt which is my good friend Paul who owns Atrox. Also you can drive 2 hours North and visit Slaughter House. Now before you say anything don't accuse me of saying well now that your the only haunt does that mean your haunt is shitty? Hell no. I love when people come out and say we had no idea. or that was increadable, or that was so deceiving! Anyway I will agree the site needs some work and thats being done as I type this so in a few days we will see a little more eye candy and I am going to do it just for my ole pal, buddy brother in death Larry lol! Anyway Fear Nightmare Thanks I do think the front of the Manor is great if I do say so myself. Shane

Oh, man Shane your haunt was on our Haunt tour last year. I was talking to my brother and he was like " We went to that haunt!" and I was like "We did?" and he was like "I have a photo of it!" and I was like "You Do?" and he was like " Yahh!". So I asked him to post it and he was like "As soon as I get off work"! He gets off work around 7:00 so check back then, like.

This haunt is over the top. The cow in the pic made me poop myself. He like jumped out and said like MOOOOOOOO!. Man I am still having nightmares about that. Oh oh then there are like these guys in black plastic suits up against the black plastic walls and you like dont see them till the jump out with an oversized plastic knife or cleaver.. There is sooooo much more but I want abide by shane's "and that is black plastic walls and rubber bats shane to you" wishes and not let the mistique of what a good trip to wal-mart can do.

There were several guys in latex and vinyl. They kept refering to each other as MR SLAVE. I dont know it was very creepy

It sounds more entertaining than Frankenstein's Lab-rador Retreival Units as Freddy flosses with the Mummy's wrappings at the wrap party.
I love, no, am addicted to, making customers think new thoughts during the time they spend seeing my house.
If I get bored, I ONLY have myself to blame then!
Think of the haunt revolution if they began making big rolls of pink plastic to replace the black!
(I know it will never happen because black plastic could almost be mistaken for shiney black leather, whereas pink wouldn't.)

True everyone should see the pics. But this is Larrys site and he creates the rules. Or he posts pics the way he wants to. I prefer to post pics from photobucket so everyone could see.

As for the photoshopped pictured, goodness and you wonder why Shane didn't want to post a pic. Damn!

I still think its a nice facade and am GLAD he posted it.
