I currently run a haunted house at my house. for 2012 I am considering running the haunt for more than one night. Any thoughts on complications in doing this?
Thanks for your help
Thanks for your help
Thanks, I agree. my Haunt is getting to the size where it seams (Gasp!) like alot of work to set it up and make it and only run it for one night of enjoyment. :ninja:none, go for it.
It's a lot of work just for one night and you get to work out the kinks.
Been there, you'll love it!
I have never thought about my slave labour minions:smoking:. That is defiantly something to consider.:googly:If your haunt is all props then go for it. If it requires actors/slave labor then you have to consider that too. People can scream and growl for one night a year, but night after night takes it's toll on the vocal cords., the same with actors who have to do more complicated or laborious parts.
If all is okay in all of those departments then go for it. I'd make sure that I posted the days I was going to run the haunt though, there's no use in having it open for a week or two ahead of time if nobody knows it open/available. But you may get people expecting candy on those other days/nights too.
Three nights would be great! But 2 nights seams enough this year.Last year we went for 3 nights but this year we are probably just going for Saturday night and Halloween Night. At least that is the plan. Might get so excited as the time comes that we go crazy and do all week!!!!! I always get sad when it's over.
I can sympathize with you there I hate it when it is all over.Last year we went for 3 nights but this year we are probably just going for Saturday night and Halloween Night. At least that is the plan. Might get so excited as the time comes that we go crazy and do all week!!!!! I always get sad when it's over.
thanks for the infoIt can always be a challenge when the holiday falls in the middle of the week like it does this year. it means you have some days off between the holiday and the weekend before or after, and trying to keep the enthusiasm (and energy) of your family and labor force going during the days off can be difficult. It also means that you have to do setup and tear down at least twice. Unlike the amusement parks, home haunters don't often have the space or ability to move big props and keep them intact in storage, so the operation can be fairly labor intensive.
