  1. Default quick ethics question---is this ok?

    Since Haunt season is coming up, my car is advertising our Haunt. All it is is a magnet on one car, and a reusable vinyl sticker on another, they aren't that big, about 8 inches by 12 inches. I plan on seeing some Haunts this year, and I wanted to know if it is in bad taste to have these on my car when I go to visit.
    I can take the magnet off easily......Sticker not so much.
    I don't think it would be a big deal, since most people are not going to see a magnet on the side of a car, leave the parking lot, and go to my haunt instead of the one they are currently at, but I didnt want to get black listed, considering that this is just my 2nd year professional.
    Thanks

    that doesnt sound like a big deal at all,im a tourguide/innkeeper at the lizzie borden house in fall river,something like that wouldnt bother us at all,in fact quite the opposite,it can be flattering that someone else in the business wants to come see your show

    Personally,
    I don't think it's disrespectful or in bad taste. I've never felt that way about another haunt, my actors even wear "our" tee shirts when we go to another haunt. I do however try to inform the other haunt when we will coming for a visit.
    "MOST" of the time,... the other staff is happy to see us & the actors are trying extra hard to "amp" it up for the our acting crew, the owners even ask for input / comments after we have gone through.
    Most of "us" , ....."haunters"...... all get along & the few that I have met that would take offense are the type that wouldn't want you to go to their haunt anyway.....because.... "they have the BEST haunt on the planet", & your just there to cause trouble.... in their eyes.
    Just my 2 cents.

    You should absolutely advertise your haunt while at other haunts. Jackets, hats, cars & T-shirts! The customers that are already there will still go in and it promotes your haunt as well. We have haunts that come up in their gear every year and I was never ffended by it!

    Good Luck!

    We always welcomed other haunts and if you had extra flyers we would pass them out at our ticket booth.
    We would also let other haunters go thru for free.

    I would love to see cars from other haunts in our parking lot! And bring your tee shirts as well! Hell - come in costume and parade around the midway!! I don't "hate" the competition, and in my day job I have many friends who work for competing companies. We talk all the time - we just don't share secrets. But haunting is different. We can help each other and it only helps us as an industry get stronger. I have several haunts within an hour of us, and I am hoping we can all team-up and create a "haunt trail" for our patrons where they can get discounts and stuff when visiting all of our haunts. They plan on visiting their haunts because I love haunted houses and I want to support as many as I can. I would hope they feel the same about us.
