    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...
  2. Weird Marketing Signs AKA It Never Hurts To Ask

    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...

    I agree Tiki, except it doesn't always drive them crazy. Sometimes they just forget whatever the beef was and end up being your friend instead. I've had that happen at least on two different...

    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 always have fun making new haunted house posters (http://www.monsterwax.com/posters.html), but this year's ad was especially fun. The artist is Ricardo Garijo, Jr., a fantastic fellow. Thought...

    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...

    If your competition is really good, that increases the haunt audience by making customers want to relive the thrill again at the next haunt. If the haunt sucks, it burns a lot of territory and makes...

    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.

    it does sound like fun, but I'd be curious how many people who go the event will actually come to the haunt. You should do something to track it and encourage it, like give them all coupons for a %...

    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...
