not much to say, please see this vid
If they manage to get up and running it will only be due to a great deal of generosity!

Jerry, Mike et. al.
I am so, so sorry to hear about this. I hope they catch the bastards that did this to you all.

You guys, we can't let this happen. That's bullshit.
Let's find out exactly what they need and help them get back on track. THAT'S what this community is about.
I'll be back on this.

I called Jerry of Hagan Haunted House.
He was with the press and couldn't talk at the moment. I asked him to call me back when he could, and that I wanted to know what we could do to help.
I'll post more when I hear from Jerry.

Haven't heard from Jerry yet. I'm sure he's quite busy with the media.
I'll give another try tomorrow. In the meantime, it would be so awesome if y'all
could think of ways to help.
Would y'all be willing to do donate equipment you're not using this year? Not everything you have, LOL, but something?
Or maybe we could do a group PayPal account for donations?
I am so sorry to hear about this. This is a subject that really hits home for a lot of people, I'm sure. I once had a haunted house setup vandalized and stolen from, so I can greatly relate to the crush that comes along when a group of assholes step so carelessly on something that is your passion... However I cannot relate to the amount of money, work and love that you all put into such an attraction, and my heart goes out to you. I wish you all the best; that they catch those sons-of-bitches, but more importantly that you can find the strength to go on and not let this haunt what you are and what you have done.

This is really bad news for anyone. Sorry something like this happened. But its no reason to hang it up. It looks like everything else is still intact. Run it with your actors! Thats the best part of a show anyway. You can get by without animations and all that other stuff. Dont let who did this get the last laugh!

Criminals are just stupid enough to try and sell stolen goods! MORONS!

What can you say. It is just so very sad.
It has happened to our local charity several times in the past, and it is always heart breaking to say the least.

I hope the find the a%#bags that did this. You might also want to watch craigslist or some impressive home haunts popping up. Good luck and hopefully you get the stuff back.

No thieves caught yet. Still working on it.
We had some generous computer donations from Best Buy and cash from the City Council. While we are not "whole" again we are opening and it will be a great show.
I'm still trying to replace some of the stolen items, like our air compressor but all is good.
We do have full time security now thanks to volunteers who don't mind sleeping in a haunted mansion. Sure eats up volunteers quickly though. :)
We'll be open Oct 24, 25 , 31 and Nov 1. Dress rehearsal is Oct 23 and anyone in pirate garb gets in free on that night. We still need volunteers and it isn't too late for teens to get involved.
The dedication from our kids and staff has been wonderful to witness as we've rebuilt. It's more than just a haunt. For many of our kids and volunteers it is an absolute life long passion.
Best regards to you all and thanks fro spreading the word. Donations still needed....

Jerry, I'm glad that things are moving along for you and you're finding some great volunteers. I only wish I were closer and able to be there myself to help out. Please keep us posted on how it goes, and share pictures.
Pulling together in times like these is what it's all about.

i hope everything works out for you.
it is so stupid that some people actually want to steal like that, it doesnt make sense! why cant people just build a haunted house without having to worry about idiots trying to steal the stuff they payed for and worked hard for?
best of luck Jerry!
hope everything works out!
