    Hello there!
    How in the world do I get a Haunted attraction started? i have ideas coming out of my ears. How much to start up? How much should be spent on Advertising? How much will it cost to set up from scratch? I am trying to construct a bus. plan, and am hitting alot of blanks, due to lack of experience. If I wanted to start from scratch, how to I write a business plan, and where might i be able to find statistics?
    Thanks!!!

    I can really help you because I have had a haunt for 2 years and you should really only start with 4 or 5 scenes. How many years have you haunted? How much money do you have? If I know how much money you have I could tell you how to advertise, make what scenes, and where to buy supplies, props and effects.

    I am starting with $250,000. I have about 5 acres, and I have never haunted before. This is a brand new adventure for me.

    There are so many tips I can offer you, it would be impossible to list them here. I would suggest going to work for a haunt this year to get a feel for it. Private Message me if you have any specific questions.

    Sounds like you will be off to a flying start. Just make sure you have a sensible business plan and are not just throwing away money. Your plan should be clear on when you will start seeing a profit.

    Sometimes it may be better to start small and grow.
