    Default Effect legal warning,,,Fog/strobes?

    At the West Coast Haunters Convention we got an interesting tip, and that was to put a sign out as a legal notice to people with health issues. I never considered the legal impact that it could have if my fog set off a breathing attack, or the strobes that i was using set off a siezure? I'm not a lawyer, and i'm not going to guarantee this is going to cover you, but this is close to what they said that you should put out with your display in sign form.

    Warning

    Theatrical fog, and lighting effects are in use on this property, if you have health problems that could be affected by strobe lighting, or artificial fog you should not enter.



    Thats kind of the jist of it, like i say, thats not word for word of what they suggested, but it would'nt but a bad idea to put something out. As a side note, the standard fog that you get at the store can cause an asthma attack, where Froggys will not, it's water based, and the ingredients are very high quality. The Rep. is an asthmatic himself, and he works around it all the time.

    Hauntworld.com had these signs for free.

    There were 2 signs they offered last year for free download to help haunts with warning the customers. I tried to attach them here, but the files were too large.

    I looked at Hauntworld.com and couldn't find anything like that. Maybe I didn't look hard enough.

    I couldn't find them this time either. I have them saved in my computer, but the images are too large to attach here.

    Default Death Has Happened

    Seemingly because of fog juice mixed with inherited breathing problems. The little girl was in a coma for about a year before she passed away.
    Strobes can set off a seizure in epilleptics and when they fall they fall hard, knees locked , the floor impacting them with full force.
    The haunt business sometimes seem to be everyone's "Whipping Boy", especially when 100s of small children die every year ... in their own wadding pools, in their own yard.

    Default The HauntWorld disclaimer is very thorough.

    I suggest you find a copy on-line and consider using it.
    People can injure themselves in so many ways. wearing sandals or flip-flops allows sticks to puncture the feet , sometimes causing much pain and suffering. (Haunted Trails!)
    Keep the staggering, screaming drunks OUT! This will solve So Many Problems very early.
    That disclaimer also advises about quick , sudden actions in a purposely dark and confusing setting...(as if the customer wouldn't know or consider such things just might be found in a haunted attraction!) "Duh?" Seeing it in print at the front door alerts even the most simple and hopefully makes them think...some.
    I posted three copies at the front of my house, outside, well lit, under plexiglass, accented with a bright Da-Glo posterboard behind the actual words.
    The part of the disclaimer/warning that almost always gets a laugh from customers is the one about not coming in if they suffer from "Mental Diesease". They begin calling out each other's name and poking one another! Claustraphobia is then mentioned too.
    It can be such a bad world for some of us.

    The fire marshal who inspected my haunt instructed me to have signs up.
