    Screamforadream has it right. It's a little far-fetched to open a brand new haunt with only a few months to plan EVERYTHING. It would take a hell of a team to pull it off without it being a total...

    V, you don't need to let them in for free just because they're missing 20% or so of the attraction. Folks who are disabled understand their situation and know what they're getting themselves into. ...

    I feel like I'm on a wild goose chase! I suppose online searching isn't enough. The town is Elkhorn, WI. I guess I'll have to call the marshal.

    In my experience, two things seem to be the most effective. One, like mentioned before, give them a hiding place that isn't in the strobes. Two, have some form of constant light in the room,...

    Our haunt offers it, but we hardly ever get any bites on it. We do half off for a second time through. Ticket is ripped in half, ticket number is marked on their hand, and after they go through...
