  3. Hello!

    Member Introduction
    I've been a Halloween fan since I could walk (like most people here I guess) along with horror movies, books, etc. I pleaded with my dad for years to let me open a haunt on our 30 acre farm back in the 80's but he had some reservations about me rigging my brothers and sister up on guide lines...

    Halloween Props
    What would your recommendation for the best INDOOR fog machine be? Ideally something that isn't going to set off my smoke detectors... that's the issue I ran into with the one I purchased from Spirit a few years back. I'd love to have a fog machine set up in our living room. The ceilings are...
  6. Pro Haunts

    General Halloween
    Now I don't mean to complain or anything, but this is something I've noticed for a long time and it hit me again last night as we were out going through a couple of local pro haunts. Why are they all so... cheap? I mean, it's like they don't even try most of the time. One place had so much of...

    This may be posted elsewhere. I couldn't find anything so here goes. I love pro haunts and have been visiting them for over 20 years,which guess kinda dates me but oh well.

  8. Observations at a pro haunt

    General Halloween
    Before I begin going over an observation that I noticed at a pro haunt over the weekend I would like say to that that I am in way no bashing pro haunts. I just noticed something and I am wondering how it will impact attendance for the current season and in future years. Actually I am a big fan...

  10. Question for the Pro/Home Haunt Lovers!

    General Halloween
    So I am looking to add a Haunt of the month feature to my blog. My thought is that I will either feature one pro haunt and one home haunt per month or do a rotating type of thing month to month. My question to you all is what types of questions/answers would interest you and what other types...

  14. 2012 is the last year of the haunt....at my house.

    General Halloween
    I have emailed my local parks and recreation district, asking about doing a haunted house in their 2,500 square foot community room for 2013. I emailed them about 2013 because it is probably to late to plan and have this year fully built in a pro setting, in my opinion. I hope they really go...
