    Now that we have TransWorld and our Spring Break event behind us, and with this being our first year that we didn't have to tear down and rebuild, we're already working on plans for some serious renovations! We're working on scheduling our 2nd meeting of the year in which we'll be finalizing our renovation decisions and establishing the budgets for each room to be changed out. We won't be able to completely renovate the whole haunt, but we plan to totally change up at least five of the rooms and the intro area.

    Probably not open again this year, as always. I was going to have a partner, but that didnt work out. Spent the last month or so picking up another haunted house to take home. (parts of it, just 10 or 11 trailer loads when all was said and done).

    Most likely, will work on the outdoors part the cornfield and graveyard and have those open to the point of a halloween party for friends. Better than nothing!

    As is, the main haunt will still be used in a movie, Horrorween. Now a 3D movie. (hooray for funky gimmicks reflecting a fun time).

    Need a team desperately out here. Sigh.
    The word for the day is NPD. Check it out.

    We have been redesigning since the middle of January. Every year we completely change everything in the haunt. This is our fifth anniversary and we are pulling out all the stops to make it our best year so far.

    Several rooms are complete now and several others have been started. It is turning out great! We have come up with some very cool, original rooms to go along with some variations of some of our past scares. All in all I am very pleased with what we have accomplished so far and can't wait for September.

    Hey Gwen,

    We try and re-use as much as possible. If we don't use it, we store it for the future. We collect all kinds of stuff that gets stored until we find a use for it.

    We don't purchase a lot of props. We build most of our stuff ourselves. But when we do buy things we try and keep it to things that can be used in different scenes year after year.

    Hope that answered your question.

    Howie
