I wouldn't mind it to be voluntary at all, the experience would be enough for me. The charity haunt is a route that i'm going to start looking at, to be honest. I do like the idea of being a cue line character, particularly if it had to be a bigger attraction (i.e. Scream Factory, my most likely most local one). I would certainly love it to be a character of my choosing/description, even if it had to be altered for doable purposes as it would be great for my creative side. I couldn't involve my family - they'd think I was mad! Also some of them work so the hours might be an issue. Thanks for the encouraging advice - I will most certainly try.
