    Because talk-talk gets walk-walk. Or hadn't you noticed? How many of us invite media to our haunts? Have radio station on-sites? All of that--and this may come as a surprise--is to get people talking about our haunts. Because when they talk about them, they say things like 'I heard about Bob's Big Haunt and Scary Clown Maze on the radio/TV--let's go check it out!'

    Funny how that works.

    Everyone I have talked to that heard about this doesn't even know the name of his haunt/show. How is it good PR if most if not all people don't even remember his haunts name. All they know is naked haunted house. Most didn't even know what state he is in.

    Son-of-Sam good to see you post on this and utilize common sense. Jack is so dead set on supporting it I'm thinking he knows Pat well or works there for him.

    Look the bottom line is what Larry said it himself...Whether or not you know what haunt was doing the naked and afraid challenge, it doesnt matter, people are talking. Larry even said this site is getting crushed on a daily basis. Imagine how many people are coming to the forums seeing all this horseshit about people calling each other names and stupid. If you wanna know why we arent taken seriously its because we cant even get along for a minute on anything.
    Jesus loves you, but everyone else thinks you're an asshole.

    calling people idiots and making character attacks is the most unprofessional thing here...not what Pat did...and as an extremely successful industry leader it is sad to be associated with this narrow minded bigotry

    what pat did was make people think about haunted houses..right when we all want that to happen..

    absolutely everyone has heard about this and the only ones that think it hurt anything r the ones it has helped and it has helped us all period...it put people in all of our lines..

    people in our line cant stop talking about it..they want to do it...

    some people r sooo blinded by their own arrogance its sad...their is no point to be made here..i say thanks Pat..thank u for helping put people in failing haunts line...

    the funniest thing is how haunts that admit their business has been down for years telling someone else that they are doing it all wrong.....

    so much bs on here its sickening....like facebook is not a good way to advertise...what a load of crap...please ask another boring trivia question on your fb and

    tell me about how i am doing it all wrong...jeez wake up and see that stagnant content is just that.. stagnant content ...people want to be engaged...they want new exciting things..not static props and

    cgi...its boring...its lame .....respectfully take this from a haunter with a different perspective ...one whose numbers are not down..from someone who doesn't have time to bash others...someone trying to help u see

    a new way to be a better person and run a better haunt....theirs my 2 cents
    in order to see the orchestra ...you must turn your back on the crowd...

    Couple things... again switch the topic around from the point to something else that in and of itself is pointless. First off Pat in my opinion did NOT try to engage people talking about haunts he tried to drum up business for his haunt nothing more or less. Lets not confuse the reality... he's getting crushed in his local area but all the competition in his area. The PR STUNT backfired and the whatever positive PR he was trying to get is still as many of you are failing to see backfired... the pr was about a naked haunt nothing else now there isn't a naked haunt. So I'm thinking he will lose more business than he would have gained. Sorry some of you who accuse me of being drama queens are actually the drama queens... you miss the point totally. I'm still waiting for one of you to do a naked haunt... still waiting for that one.

    Tim to you... maybe you think abortion scenes, suicide scenes, or extreme violence is the only thing that isn't lame but we just have to disagree there. As for you mentioning Facebook me saying its not an effective marketing tool sorry Charlie but you are a guy who doesn't even advertise at all so how would you know what works best or what doesn't? I check my sites analytic and sorry to tell you but... facebook out of the thousands of dollars you can spend on it doesn't hardly send any traffic. At the end of the day you need people to buy tickets and if they don't use facebook to buy tickets then its not an effective tool to sell tickets. Reality is Tim I think what you do is cool its daring and on the edge you keep doing that because it makes you happy, excited, and your customers seem to love exactly what you do ... that is really all that matters. But because someone else doesn't do it doesn't mean we are lame. You and I or I should you and 99% of the haunts in the WORLD have a different thing going on... they can't be compared on any level.

    What you do I think is awesome and honestly if I made a list of 10 haunts I'd want to visit yours would be on it so would House of Shock but that doesn't mean I will take on the extreme themes you guys do.

    Getting back to the subject matter... one of these days some of you guys will appreciate me more when I'm gone. I inspired a really divisive discussion about this matter and we saw different views, different takes and different perspectives. Reality is about 80% of everyone who posted commented about the naked haunt across the country was negative... the community leaders negative in the end that is all that matters.

    My main point was the community leaders would react negative so it was a bad idea... my point was 110% proven and I stand by everything I saw 110%. If you want to invite your real boss down on your head go for it. Tim you are not above the law and neither is anyone else, if your community leaders got on your bad side your haunt would disappear quickly! As Ripley said believe it or not! But that is the point my friend.

    Larry

    PS: You know who is dead on the money here... SON OF SAM! And honestly its sad to divert the main point a point we can all learn from folks. This is probably one of the best things that happened in the haunt industry this year. Because we can sit here and debate this topic and debate the logic behind doing it something like it in the future. I'm excited about all the conversation that has happened... but my main point is exactly what Son of Sam said... has anyone ever talked about his haunted house and the answer is no. The PR did not help him....and again this has been a very productive debate.

    There's a great bit of history that involves a journalist named Pauling Kael. After a presidential election she said that she couldn't understand how Nixon won because no one she knew voted for Nixon. Nixon won in a landslide.

    Perhaps, Sam, your circle of friends needs some expanding?
