Caretaker of Eerie Manor
This was the third collaborative haunt between myself and fellow forum member lewlew (Mark). This year we darkened things down several shades and went with a vampire crypt theme. Planning began back in February and culminated in our biggest and best walk through ever. The layout consisted of a front yard display, Mark's amazing foam block mausoleum entrance, the main building, a scene on our patio, the monks graveyard in the driveway, followed by the corn maze, then back into the building, through a pitch dark maze and into the throne room. There were three drop panel scares, a plexi window scare, catacombs that held a variety of vampires and a hidden locker scare. We overheard at least two people that said they wet themselves, and the screams and laughs were non stop for over two solid hours. Our crew of 31 actors entertained and scared close to 800 guests. We went to great lengths with detail this year and it didn't go unnoticed although there were many people who were too terrified to take it all in. All in all an epic Halloween capped off by perfect weather and an appreciative crowd. Too many pictures and details to get them all in here but these are some of our favorites. Thanks for looking!
