  4. Blackout Haunts

    General Halloween
    Hey all! Have you ever built/run/visited a blackout haunt? Not "Blackout" - the one where they simulate a kidnapping, but a haunt that is pitch black or nearly so? What was the most effective thing about it? What were the best scares? Pros and cons of such a haunt?
