    Some haunts started as early as the 13th and a lot opened this weekend, what are the numbers looking like in comparison to 2012? Hope everyone has a great season, I always enjoy hearing how things go early in the season around the country.

    Scuttlebutt coming at me through grapevine is "down" for same week as last year even with good weather this year. This was from a haunt in Michigan that puts together a small publication of about 20 haunts. We are holding good though after 3 weekends of maze and our 2 nights of haunt. But had rain Sunday morning Sept 29th and our corn maze attendance today at opening is way below what good weather would be.

    At least this year the news media din't drive "short corn this year" into peoples heads. Tired of hearing "oh you have tall corn this year" to which we answer "we had 10 foot tall corn last year." Now as long as we do not have another I-96 shooter with swat teams all over and cop helicopters buzzing us this year i think we will be ok.

    So far, we are right about the same as last year, but both are still down a good bit from 2011.....anybody else have any numbers to share?

    Down from last year and last year was down from 2011 as you said... I think price has become a major factor now. I'm adjusting right now ... I'm always learning about trends and when faced with serious issues you have to be willing and able to quickly change things up. That is what I'm doing. I think the entire haunted industry is overpriced and we've reached the limit of what is realistic... I'm making adjustments. Larry

    I've been to 7 haunts so far and each owner has said that their numbers are slightly up from last year and most of them have said that the numbers are much better for this early in the season. We've had great weather so far and this weekend is looking good too...
