    The Kids:"We want to see that really incredible haunt called "XYZ!"
    Then the parents take them to see haunt" ABC."
    How did the kids end up being in a haunt but not ithe one they wanted to see?
    A very simple and everyday answer is:"Haunt ABC.. was cheaper!
    The Parents now feel as if they have satisfied their child's wishes!
    Wrong!
    Cheap-o's is what they is...most kids are not "Happy" then either?!

    I'm not knocking any haunts especially Minnesota haunts. I love that they can get along. all I'm stating is TX can be brutal for charity haunts or profit. I for one would love to see such harmony and unity here as well !!
    I'm only doing this to impress 2 people ... The fire marshal and the customer that's it !!!

    There is in groups in your area, but you have to find those guys. Like I said you must protect your back yard but there are other was to work with other haunts. As far as the cheepo haunts, we dont have that up here. This is what happens here we have sub par haunts charging $20 a person and when someone goes to that haunt they think that all the $20 haunts suck. This means they don't even look at another haunt to go see what they have. The guy I want to run out of business are the ones that have black wall and a bunch of Spirit mask and call themselves a haunt. We have over 110 haunts in the Detroit area and I would say that 60% are junk. these guys need to step it up or get out. But as far as the guys that are doing quality shows I will work with them to try to get rid of the fly by night guys. The better we make the industry then the better I will be in the long run. Its like the movie theaters they put one up in each area and make sure they are not right next door to the the next closes one. I have been running my company for a long time and we have become one of the best in the nation so maybe I look at competition a little different, I hire them to do the work I don't want to do and use them for big projects I need a extra 40 guys for.

    DA

    Incase you havent heard...Disney owns Marvel...Marvels Islands of Adventures is at Universal, if Disney truly wanted to destroy Universal they would make them pull all marvel stuff from that park...however Disney being smart sees that 2 parks are better then one and will continue to help out...will they ever be best friends prob not.
    Jesus loves you, but everyone else thinks you're an asshole.

    I would agree weeding out the bad haunts would help a bunch, I don't think we have any of these out my direction or based on the black plastic and Spirit masks lingo from above.

    Scott, that deal only recently took place about 2 or so years ago and there was a stipulation that protected marvel universe. Believe me they do not like each other go to universal they take shots at Disney all the time.

    If you think that there is really a rivalry between Universal Orlando and Disney World you are a little off on that one. I have a Aunt who works in upper management for Disney and her daughter work for Universal, the only thing that goes on really is that a lot of Universals employee are jealous of the mouse. 2012 Disney World did almost 41 billion dollars in revenue and Universal Orlando did 2 billion dollars in revenue. I think that more like a pro haunter vs a home haunter. And Disney basically sent Harry Potter to Universal after they offered more money for the project and then withdrew the offer based on creative differences.
