    After a lot of words I've decided on Evil Paradise. Thought it was easy enough to remember and made for an interesting oxymoron.

    The word "Paradise" doesn't bring anything scary to mind. In fact, it makes me think of quite the opposite! I'm just imagining two zombies sprawled out on the beach sipping on drinks with the little umbrellas. :P

    Just my 2 cents!
     

  3. Default "Fools Paradise"

    A very common phrase that kind of puts two sort of opposites next to another...
    Some haunt names don't leave much freedom to evolve, if that might be in the cards on down the road..
    Aiming for the teen audience? Maybe a gnarly, radical , even gruesomely descriptive couple of such words riding beside one another will trip their wallet digging finger-tips? (If that is what this is all about?)
    "Ravens Grin" is a perfect name for what kind of a show we do here. (Well, at least I think so!)
    I play the anticipation and stir up fear(s) then the punchline is attempted humor.
    We still manage to scare people here. They are some fairly unusual methods and set-ups, that can catch most people off guard a high percentage of the time.
    Then there is the totally fictious haunt name I had screened upon several T-shirts many years ago:
    "Doctor Eval Bloodfeast's House of the Ultimate Satanick Jr. Leeches" (Voted "Suckiest!")

    The antonym of paradise was hell, however that didn't seem to flow as well as evil.

    Go totally nuts/creative and call it "Pair Of Vices" Have twin vices squeezing two heads.
    "We are feeling cranky tonight!"
    Or a vice squeezing a beer can and a pack of smokes.
    The other vice could do the underware. hahaha!

    What is the theme of your haunt? Those two names just dont sound good together. You might try something like Evil Realm or Evil Domain. Evil Embodyment? You may not like those either but I think they sound more like a haunted houses name. Its your haunt call it whatever you want.

    Haunted Paradise or Evil in Paradise sound a little catchier to me and i hope still try to get across what your getting at. Sounds kind of like zombies on a tropical island as opposed to be industrial or urban, like everyone is used to.

    As Damon has suggested .... think of your theme you are doing through your haunt ... ALSO think of you "haunt placement" to think of your name .. Just remeber .. once you establish a name ... you are in a way "stuck" with it..

    Meaning .. for instance .. we call our Haunt here in Lockport "Night Terrors" yes we have had a following of people that have visitied us through the yeas .. and yes granted we are ONLY RUNNING on Halloween.. but .. people know us .. as son as I mention the name to people they know what im talking about ..

    Currently we are outside .. in my back yard (big back yard for city living) and we don't charge admission ( city ordianance says we cant unless we get a variance,even if we do a total non-profit to a charity) ... but we plan on EVENTUALLY getting an indoor place .. and we WILL keep the name ..

    Since we have the "following" of people .. and as long as we keep the name .. the business will follow .. even if you changer and go POSSIBLY MULTI haunt ... you can still keep the MAIN NAME to keep it familar to people but name the other hauntes within a different name ..

    For instance .. FrightWorld in Buffalo they have/had 4 or 5 separate hauntes in there and they are all named something different ... Haunted Catacombs they have/had multiple haunts as well but used difrent names for thier individual haunts .. Scare at the Fair .. also have/had multiple haunts ...

    It's all a matter of getting your name out there .. and keep that name .. and then on your website or advertising material include .. if you go multiple haunts .. say that " Haunt name Featuring .. such and such haunts " ...

    Just my suggestions...
