    We had a booth at a festival passing out flyers on our corn maze and haunt. Lady walks up with her husband a few feet behind her. She picks up one of my flyers all excited "Does this tell us how to make our own corn maze". She thought I showing people how to make them.

    Step up folks and get all of Wicked Farmers secrets and know how....all you need to know to make a corn maze....all on a half sheet of paper.


    Yes I HONESTLY HAVE told someone to not bother coming to my maze because "You are too damn stupid to find your way through it."

    Actually the best phone calls I get each year are these... already got two

    Someone calls me from my own town and says they want to open a haunted house and want to know if I'll help them! LOL

    I always ask what did you think this might cost... they always say they have about $25,000 or so to invest. I say back have you ever been to The Darkness? Yeah well $25,000 wouldn't build one scene much less pay for all the safety equipment you would need and then some...

    I'll just announce this now... I'm opening a 4th Haunted House in St Louis in 2014. I hope to get it done for a tour during the Transworld Show... I don't know how much its going to cost me but it will be a TON and I mean a TON!

    Opening a haunt now is one of the biggest risks possible ... between the building, labor, liability risks, marketing, safety equipment to you all know what else. I would probably say more fail than make a profit... so these calls are always interesting to listen to.

    I would LOVE for someone in my home town to offer me a location, and have me supply the haunt! But unlike Larry, I don't already own a pro haunted house (or in his case, soon-to-be FOUR haunted houses! Congrats Larry!)

    What's the location on the new haunt? And what's it going to be like?
