    We had one of our wagons with a fortune teller in it at the exit of our haunt Scarevania and people went nuts for it. She had a line all night long of people wanting to see the inside. It was a great way for that extra attraction and income.

    It was here for a night or two. The guy sold about ten tickets.
    Maybe the outside of the structure looked too small to offer much fun to people?
    I guess that it was one of three ever built, the guy was given this one, didn't have to even pay for it but it was alot of work lugging it around and setting it up .
    ...and to think it almost got set up in my backyard!

    Maybe a mini haunt for younger kids? I have had some success with that in the past. Nothing too big, maybe 2 or 3 rooms, more visually stimulating then scary.

    A mini haunt for the kids is a great idea!! I may try that myself this year.
    I think that carnival games with a halloween theme would be a way to make a few extra bucks. "Bloody Duck Pond", Blood Bottle Ring Toss", stuff like that. Get prizes from a place like Oriental Trading .

    Jim Im kinda late chiming in on this post about your balls! LOL! Paintballs this is! But I had to laugh out loud at some of the reasons why they were ripping on you. Ha ha! Maybe your balls got frozen? It is cold in the winter up there in Mutt Carrol you know Jim! If it was in the winter months and you left them in the trunk or car overnight they might have froze then when they thaw out they are very good. Just a thought. Bad bicycle wrecks can rip your balls as well! OUCH! P.S I like those Ideas about the bloody duck pawn and the oriental trading prizes. I think everything should be Halloween from start to finish! It adds a nice touch. Even if you have a magician I think he should do like a horror magic act it makes it more interesting.

    Call me a dork, but I like the idea of having photos taken with one's favorite classic monster (Creature from the Black Lagoon, Wolfman, e.g.) or maybe an actor from the haunt itself.

    Would something like this work well to pacify customers while they wait in line (but after they've paid for the haunt)? Those who choose not to have their photos taken can at least enjoy watching those who do.

    It might even be relatively simple to make an arrangement with a local photo studio, whereby the haunt receives a portion of the sales, without having to do much of the work.

    I was just up at kennywood getting a look at the awesome new dark ride, and I saw that laser maze.

    it had a constant flow of people at 5.00 each, I can only imagine how much it'll do during their haunt season.
    they had a TV monitor outside so folks could watch the progress of the people before them. so it served as it's own line entertainment as well
