    QR Codes are free and easy to create. I think you would be silly not to use them.

    Well then call me silly...I can't get my crayons to make all those little square thingeys.


    Another fabulous post from the U.S.Department of Wild Imaginings, now in spectaclar stereo, sponsored by the Adhesives and Sealants Council, suggesting ways to stick things together since the 1800s. Not fabulous in a gay way. Your results may vary. Illinois residents add 8% sales tax. These posts have been made by professional post makers, do not try this type of posting on your own without extensive training, lovely assistants and a trusty clown horn.

    Well... after watching QR discussions for a year, avoiding, hemming and hawing, I think we're going to use them this year. But only in a 'deeper layer' capacity in the queue line. We're going to have a particularly long queue this year so at various points we'll have a QR code that will reference a thematic element.

    It might go like this: Suzy is standing in the line biting her nails. She sees Joe in front her snap a QR Code, the results of which cause him to exclaim "Oh Wow!" Then Suzy will say: "How'd you do that?" Joe will say, "Here let me show you!" And now, not only have Joe and Suzy learned a nifty new fact regarding the backstory and killed 10 minutes in their wait, now they will start a romance, get married and then we'll get a feature story on the haunt romance on CNN and become obscenely wealthy. It'll go just like that.

    Point being... we won't us them for critical information dissemination, but rather just as an opportunity while waiting in line to find a 'hidden gem' or deeper layer to the story of the haunt. And they'll be plenty of time to download a QR scanner.

    On a more technical side, QR Codes have built in error correction which means you can make slight modifications to them and they still work.

    Check out this link for a how-to:

    It's also may be a good idea to do some tracking on the scans:

    That's the problem, you are using crayons. I learned early on that you gotta use markers. My boys washable fat crayola markers work perfect!

    Finger paints work amazingly too.
