    Hello everyone, A friend and I are looking to "go pro" this year and I am wondering if there is some kind of package that would help with forms and the ins and outs with a haunted attraction.

    We defiantly have the creativity down and the time to build for a haunt. But when it comes to finances and all the legal paperwork that comes along with it I have not a clue.

    Is there a website that has a start up kit or someone that would be gracious enough to let us know what is all involved.

    Thank you

    Maybe there should be a sticky on this forum answering this exact question. Seems this question always pops up, and half the replys are to buy that book.

    Well, add another recommendation for that book. From a business perspective, I have yet to find a single source that was more informative than that book. Definetly required reading.

    I just stumbled on this thread. Thanks for all the recommendations for my book! I really do appreciate it and the kind words! I'm looking forward to seeing everyone at TW. I just wish there were more hours in the day and more days at TW so I could get quality visiting time in with EVERYONE! We are very fortunate to be part of an industry that is filled with so many awesome people!
