    House for sure... though it's more costly (electric, security, it goes on and on etc...), you don't have to worry about the rain or cold...and cancelling due to weather... and having patrons walkthrough a house amongst the actors instead of observing them from a wagon (though some places do a good haunt this way), has a more threatening factor for patrons. For most, having the security of the wagon does help the scare factor and can lead to "observation" unless the actors hop onto the wagon and are interactive.

    You can definently scare em more with the house. It seems more "real" But, if you have a tight budget and a tough fire dept. go for the forest. The fire dept. will be easier on you if it's outside.

    ..and when 25 enter the house and only 24 exit, who's to notice everyone has a little bloody souveneer in their back pocket or chewing on something gnarly, not Bob Gnarly the singer, either!

    HOUSE!!

    ok last year i was working both a haunted hay ride and a house, it was killing me not to work the house every night because i needed the money the hay ride offered. But look its not even for those little mistakes its cause you dont get enough TIME to screw with people correctly on a hay ride, its jump on do your thing and jump off and run across the feild for the next batch of 50 people and you do this ALL night, you get 10 seconds for 50 people!!!!
    i love the house because you can pick out the weak and play with them

    I just thought up a good idea for a hayride, using bones and useing them to make the cart. Of course they would have to be human..........

    the bone idea though actually sounds like a great idea, but you gotta think about that a little better, actors jump onto that hay ride and they work like that, bone placement has to be careful for the sake of these actors, theres enough blisters, cuts, bruises, broken masks, in the life of a hayride haunter.
    yes, broken masks, ive seen many of the harder masks get cracked when an actor jumps off a hay ride and doesnt realize theres a second cart connected and gets whacked in the face, causing the mask to break.
    TIP:: when working hayride, for gods sake have face protection! little kids punch and hayrides hurt.

    But it is more enetrainment for the customers buck when a Hayride actor falls off and gets run over by that second cart. "Hey son, Look at that scary monster, opps he fell off, but the his head gettting severed by the wheel is so realist... wait that was his head.......oh, crap"
