    I'd chalk this up as a bad idea all around.

    I certainly wouldn't want to insure a haunt using real weapons. It seems like an unnecessary risk. As a patron, I find it to be a negative as well. ...

    I happened to be in the Boston area for business and had tonight free before catching a flight tomorrow. Made an hour and a half drive (each way) to go see Haunted Overload. Been watching the...

    I wouldn't worry too much about ratings here anyway. Haven't done the analysis this year, but last year references from Hauntworld made up less than 1% of my site hits anyway. People weren't...

    Adding dates mid-season

    I'm wondering what kinds of experience people have with adding extra dates in the middle of the season. With rainouts wiping out opening weekend for us, a couple of the other events at our location...

    Between a rainout on both days of opening weekend, 2 less days this year to start with, and the second weekend of the month being way down from last season, I can only describe this season as a...

    Unfortuantely, this weekend we only got talk about how much rain we got. Memphis area rain was awful. Started right at opening time both nights. Friday night I was in ankle deep water within 30...

    Keep water out whenever possible. Then I have far less concern.

    Even though I'm trying to keep water out, I still...

    Leonard was looking at Memphis, but I had to advise against it for the time being. Nasheville, Birmingham, and Atlanta are better choices right now, unless Memphis builds up more haunts (which is...

    If I'm going through a haunt, 1 strobe is often too many. I think it's the #1 complained about thing in haunts. I hear it over and over.

    Trail of Terror is probably the most used name for trails out there. At one point, the Memphis area had 4 haunted trails. 3 of them were named the trail of terror.

    I obviously play too many video games. I read GG as "good game" which signifies something is over. I was worried for a minute the line was being ended.

    The vast majority do accept credit cards, and don't try to attach a fee to it. If you don't take credit cards, some portion of your customers will leave and won't be back.

    They are depreciable over 10 years. So all you have to do is spend 10x what you make and you are all set.

    You are only somewhat off base. Sure, the animation would likely take longer than a latex prop. But # sold is a big factor.

    If an animation takes 10 days to build, and you ordered the 10th one,...

    Now, this we do have in Memphis as well. We have a number of dead malls in the area. We also had Schnukks (grocery store chain) leave Memphis, leaving a large number of empty grocery stores. (And...

    We are doing 8 nights this year. Last year we did 10 (staying open the extra two days Halloween weekend), but those last two nights were really slow, so we are hoping that 8 nights this year will...

    He probably did you a favor. The hobby industry is TERRIBLE to be in. Most hobby stores around the country are going under due to the internet and mail order. The distributors who supply hobby...

    HHGregg took over our circuit city location almost as fast as it emptied out in Memphis.

    You probably have to contact BMI or ASCAP. They control the rights for most music. Different artists belong to one or the other of these organizations and use them to license out permission to the...

    I guess before anyone gives suggestions for ceilings. The important question is a safety one. How is your sprinkler system hooked in? If you put ceilings at the wall panel level, blocking your...

    This has been talked about a lot, and it pretty much comes down to the fact that travelling would be terrible for the show. This show isn't targetted for tourism or for haunt crews. It's targetted...

    Going back to the original question, the power of the laser is a big deal. Not all lasers are safe, especially in someone's eyes. Getting technical specs of a laser is a big deal. I did a ton of...

    I don't do that much either, but I've found at the show that is one of the best sources of contacts and information available. I learn a ton going to the bar or to the night events. Not to mention,...

    I picked up a couple Watchoos.
    EFX Tech controllers.
    A lot of mechanicals from Frightprops.
    The Cannon Floor model from Edge.

    When I saw that this was being marketed at TW, at first, I thought it must be your haunt marketing it, since I think of you first for Money Back haunts. (I'm even in TN!) Now, my questions.
