    Don't need to touch

    Last year I got a call over the radio - a patron had touched one of the younger actors - in all the wrong places (I know its reversed but still the same issue). Turned out he only touched himself, in...
  4. Let's fix whats broken first

    Sounds interesting, but you haven't solved my advertising dilemma - despite calls and emails and even PMs. Larry, give me a call and if we can solve the simple advertising issue, I might be...
  5. Demographics + Business Plan = possibility of making a profit

    We have been running three years now, and have lost money every year. But I know why I have lost money every year, and believe it or not, it was part of my plan. Now we are moving to a larger...

    I hate seeing this stuff

    As a gun owner this makes me sad. We need to educate kids and adults that guns are not for fooling around, and as several have posted already, you always treat a gun as if it was loaded. I always...

    Tell us more Uncle Larry!

    This wouldn't be the same haunt that has these pictures going viral on Facebook would it? Looks like the same wall. I would love to know what system they are using, and what scare they are using.

    Oh yeah

    Yep - anytime you replay recorded music there are copyright issues. You need to buy a license from ASCAP and BMI, and possibly SECAP for just the limited times your are open. Don't even think about...

    We have only had to deal with this one night, and it was not really raining hard. My boy (who runs the outdoor haunt) was on the radio asking me what we should do, and when I saw the queue growing,...

    Its the total experience!

    We put our focus on the total experience. From the time they get out of their car, the sounds fill their ears. Not any sounds, but carefully selected audio tracks that add to the total experience....
  16. Food works for us!

    We shoot for the food. I usually give them free tickets for their employees in exchange for feeding the actors. This works great and saves me a bunch of money (feeding these monsters is expensive!)....

    More roaches!

    I love those little roaches! You will find those and fake spiders all over the Big T Productions workshop, and my office has them everywhere. Visitors always freak when they run across them!
