    being in our 6th year we have some big changes for this year, but now we might have found a new bigger and better home (4,000 sf in the middle of no where to 11,000 sf off a major highway) So now we're kind of on standstill until we figure out whats going on with the building.

    Our haunt will be meeting at the end of the month to decide whether or not to even operate at all this year. Attendance has been declining ever since 9-11 although it did come back up a bit last year compared to previous years. We no longer operate the haunted barn (only a decent haunted hayride) so without a multiple haunted attraction, attendance has dropped. The biggest problem is that the owner of the show doesn't spend much to upgrade the attraction. Customers experience basically the same show every year and without a noticable "change" every other year or so, the customers just don't come back. If we operate this year, it will be the 25th anniversary of the event but only if we have a sufficient number of people to run the show.

    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.

    We had a crew party 2 weeks ago just to touch base. Chad Savage is reworking our website. We just rebuilt about 75 wall panels and will be heading to the Rocky Point auction at the end of the month. Mike

    Well, I have built a coverd bridge facade, front and back for the Vortex Tunnel that I ordered from Joe. I built the undertakers facade with a small CGI effect built in it and I have started to build the civil war cannons, one will shoot air the other water. I bought a air cannon from MidnightEvil and I took a long drive and picked up a wicked hearse that I got on ebay. A haunters work is never done. I'll post some photos in Aug. when we start putting up the haunt.

    The other night someone stole some of my lighting so I'm now putting more time and effort and money into making them even less available to their little mits.
    This time I know for sure it was not the raccoons unless these raccoons are six feet tall and can reach way above their heads while standing on a railing, maybe I'm just put everything back how it was and just grease the railing?
    Then my smoke alarm system began going off. Just one detector, with little bugs living in it makes life noisey.
    Today I began the preliminary welding on a robot monster for the newly cleared spot in my basement. It will be bolted together from many smaller assemblies since I am using steel for the whole critter. This time I am only grinding off the rust where I weld it, leaving the nasty old rust everywhere else, I think it will possibly achieve a look of a creation from long ago, another time and place...But It's Here NOW! RUN!!!
