    hey,
    i am planning my haunt and i have a few ?.

    1- how wide should your hallways be.
    2- i have a 10 by 20 tent with a pointed roof and i dont know if i should make a maze out of it or if i should divide it in to 2 rooms or maybe a clown room. the only thing is it is going to be the first thing they go into before they go into the house.


    thanks.

    When they go into your house is it your basement, garage etc? because depending on the size of the area you are using in your house that might help you decide if you want to do a maze in there or in the tent

    garage. and the size of that is like 36 by 40. so i was thinking tent right out front then head into the rest. or i could build walls then have it a dark waiting area.

    I would go with a maze (tent) leading into the room section (garage). In my haunt I have small maze sections leading up to each room. So its like maze, room, maze, room etc.

    I would go with 4ft wide paths.

    Use Clowns! Everyone is scared of a clown... Make your hallways narrow if your traffic is low, especially if you are not going to have actors in them. Claustrophobia can add to the scared level!

    You MUST begin your haunt with a really good looking, detailed facade and foyer or other "masthead" themed introduction room. Then leave that room with a small square darkmaze and begin the haunt. This is the industry standard. I use it because I am destined to be a pro haunter and this kind of opening to your haunt is what I have been taught.
