    So we are about to embark on a fundraising haunted house for our drill team. It will only be open one night and will be the only real haunt in our town. I have been thinking about how to get the most bang for the buck. Thinkscary's post about non-gore haunts made me wonder if anyone has ever...

  11. Haunt walk thru timing

    General Halloween
    I usually just let people walk thru my yard as they come and wish to at their own pace. Haven't had any issues with this, but this year I am planning a walk thru in the garage also which will require more actors and probably better timing. With a normal pro haunt it is normal to wait in a line...

    General Halloween
    Glad I found this site! I'm a little late to the party this year, but the wheels are turning for next year. Ever since I went to one in my old neighborhood as a kid I've always wanted to do a "haunted yard" type of attraction but I've still got a few years to go with a 3 year old and one on...
