    Besides traffic, consider what traffic is on that road. Is it to common route to work (not so good for haunts) or a common route for school (much , MUCH better-- assuming it is high school or...

    Scary to think one person on the board voted "no." Perhaps they think there are too many businesses in their city. What city is it, anyway?

    Good luck!

    the only answer I know to that problem is a (dimmed) red exit light above it, and that will cause some light pollution. I can't see the Fire folks letting you get by with an "invisible" exit. But...

    As pointed our earlier, the digital ads only give you a fraction of the viewing time. I find them impossible to finish reading if they have anything more than a sentence on them-- show times and...

    I agree that they are very touch and go. WHERE it located matters a lot, as does WHAT it says. And even then, you're probably not going to get many (if any) people who say they went to your haunt...

    Like many of haunt managers, I'm always trying to figure out what forms of marketing are the best investment for getting the word out about our haunt. Throwing money at radio and TV can be a total...

    Yes, one of our best cast members is deaf. We have to write him notes to communicate, but it's well worth it. He's great.

    There are lots of shootings in DC, but what makes that one so unusual is that all the shots came from police... The woman they were chasing and shot had no gun. Now that's gotta be one for the books.

    That's so sad. There's only a handful of fellow haunters who can really appreciate and share your experience, and instead of enjoying that thing in common, they turn it into a poison of sorts. They...

    We have lots of fun with SunlandAsylum.com. Anytime the inmates escape the asylum, it makes the visitors nervous. It can also be fun to have a guard (or guards) suddenly accuse a visitor of being an...

    As far as planned scares go, the best outside ones are probably things that cannot (or should not) happen inside. Things involving any pyrotechnics, or even gas powered chain saws. Zip lines are...

    A bolt of lightening. It just missed me and affected my hearing in one ear. But Florida is the lightening strike capital of the US and dozens per year are not as fortunate to be missed.

    I'd hate to waste a good effect on only 50% of the traffic. If it's any good, you want everyone to experience it. I'd also hate to waste twice the staff on a room that is only being used half as...
