    Hello,
    I am new to the forum. I am planning to open up a haunt in 2008. I was told by Kelly Allen to come and chat here for Ideas and help on things. I read Mr Allens Book and now my friend and I are moving forward getting all our ducks in a row for this.

    Question I have is Is it better to try and build the haunt yourself or purchase one from Like Halloween Productions or Creative Visions or some other Co that builds them.

    Thanks all for your time and I am glad to be a part of this forum.

    Dennis Moyer

    Do you have any building experience? Do you have tools?
    If you will be teaching yourself how to opertate tools, it might be better to buy ready-made, if you have the funds?
    It is a different "Ball Game" for each of us, depending upon alot of personal things.
    To have one's own haunt also (usually) requires a great amount of physical ambition, the kind that powers you to keep going even when you would like to stop. That clock just keeps ticking...can you hear it?
    (Insert evil laugh here~)
    You sure don't have to provide any answers to my public questions, they are just for you to contemplate, mostly, and I am trying to help you, not being a smart-azz, really.
    Good Luck no matter what.

    Hey Dennis! Welcome to the HauntWorld family! You know my thoughts on this topic from my book. I just wanted to welcome you aboard and let you know that I'll try to jump in and offer whatever help I can when I can. I'm still learning myself, but I'll be happy to help you learn from my mistakes so that you can avoid some of the pitfalls we've encountered. :wink:

    Nope this is the only forum I have used under this name. Besides my other forums for my EQ Stuff.

    I am glad to be here and I see i will be able to chat and get Ideas and help form everyone. TY for the warm welcome.

    So anyone know much on Copyright Stuff? I was thinking of using the name Midian From (Nightbreed Movie) as the name of my haunt. WOuld there be a Copyright issue if I used? Or should I maybe spell it Midiun?

    Jack S,

    You should be ok using the name Midian free and clear from copyrights. It is an ancient city from the Bible. The Original Hewbrew word means 'strife' or 'judgement'.

    Just make sure to check that no one else in your area is using it as the name of their haunt. Or change it up and call it Midian's Gate or some-such name.

    Good luck,

    Gahaunter
