    I was wondering what precentage of people you get that start the haunted house but are unable to continue and have to take one of the exits to saftey?

    So if any of you pros out there keep statistics or at least an estimate of out of every 100 how many fail to make it to the end I would love to hear your results.

    You can look at it as a bragging right.

    We had over 460 people not make it all the way through the haunt. More than 400 never made it past the first hall. We also had 41 confirmed pissers, 6 poopers and 9 vomiters, and 67 line outs (Never even made it inside).

    I am the greeter in one of our houses. Last night I had like 5 people not get through my room and have to leave. In a way its good and bad. Good, you think "Wow, I scared them out of their minds." And bad, "Crud, now those people won't get to see the house."

    Those are pretty big numbers, how many total people came to the haunt though. So a precentage can be calculated

    I had one little girl need to leave the first room even after we brought out the "puppy" and she semed calmed greatly. The happy ending is , she returned with her Grandma about ten minutes later and she was still somewhat upset but made it through.
    I just rescued a future patron.
    I also saved giving them or arguing about any refund.

    I was 25 miles from here today buying some new shoes and the woman who has been seling me shoes for the last ten years told me she and her daughter were "lost" ended up driving passed my house as I stood next to the front door.
    Her 23 yr. old daughter took one look and said, "That's enough, Mom! Get me outa here!" and away they sped.
    "Mom" has been here a couple of times and loves the place.

    OgeXam,

    I am not about to give our attendance numbers on a public forum such as this. We had a pretty good year. Not our best numbers but far from our worst. We we up 1100 people over last year. I will say that the number who did not make it through went down by about 70 this year over last.

    My October was down this year. Down during world Series Friday (just like many others that night) and down, I think, because of a cold October and some cold rainey nights.
    The Spring and summer was feast or famine from month to month, highest month ever followed by worst month ever following the price of gasoline. Grr! Of course we all know getting 4 "F"s on your report card and one "A" doesnot an honor student make.
    The good month didnot overcome the loss of the bad month(s)

    This was my first year doing a pro haunt, I went for a high scare factor and ended up with about a 10% chicken out rate. To many people were chickening out so we started doing custom scares where people could request a low scare, no scare or escorted scare.

    Potential "Chickens" are told to remain in the back of the group.
    I encourage people bringing small children here to be here early in the night or on Sat. & Sun. afternoons.
    Sometimes I have a couple of afternoon tours filled with parents, grandparents and little kids....they all paid the same admission, $10.oo
    Usually a group like this is not drunk or abusive so I just made a small percentage more profit not needing to repair things.
    It is more effort trying to be all things to all people but if I wasn't doing it this way I would have to figure on getting by with probably 20% less income.
