Came across this in yesterday's San Diego Union: http://www3.signonsandiego.com/stories/2009/mar/20/1m20comic233430-escapism-triumphs-over-bad-economy/?zIndex=69920

Tickets are selling out much faster than last year. Not exactly the same industry as haunting but probably still a good sign for all owners.

Movie ticket sales are up also. People still want to be entertained www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/content_display/film/news/e3ifc7db5bf2ea46d95f3f713d658390b63 - 37k -

The Escapism so to speak covers every market of the get-away-from-the-real-world activities.

Haunts, Comic Cons, Amusement parks. It's all mingled together.

And typically, if one of these do well, then the rest should do good also.

I expect to see a great year for haunts due to "Escapism".

The one problem haunts may see are that people will only pick one to go to this year, instead of multiple ones. Will they choose yours? Dun, dun, dun...

Sucks for the economy, good for us.
