Caretaker of Eerie Manor
This was the second year I had the awesome pleasure of teaming up with my good buddy and fellow forum member lewlew on a collaborative effort. We started putting things on paper back in February and began the actual off-site building in August. The carnival theme was one we’ve never done before but it was one of the most creative opportunities and really lent itself to a lot of great detail and fun scares.The front yard display was a circus arcade, complete with a kissing booth and face painting/tattoos for the kids waiting in line. Lewlew, myself, and two other actors dressed as clowns, worked the crowd, getting people excited (or nervous) about what layed ahead. Really funny how many people are terrified of clowns!The path to the actual haunt took them past a fortune teller, a pinhead, and our ringmaster greeter. Once inside, all bets were off as guests were assailed by several clowns, three drop panels, and an array of freak show oddities, including the wolf boy, snake lady and the elephant man, all of which were mere distractions for the real scares! We had over 650 visitors Halloween night along with TV coverage from two local stations. While we didn’t have any video footage we did talk to several patrons as they exited the haunt and the overwhelming consensus was that it was the best ever! Capped off by a picture perfect night and a fantastic staff of close to 20 helpers, all of whom played their parts to perfection, Halloween 2015 could not have been better! Here are some pics from the event. Hope you enjoy them!
