    Hello I'm Lady Riggy or Riggy the Riveter.....either one is fine. Depending on what act I'm doing I go by both. I've worked for House of Frankenstein, Dr. Morbid's Haunted House, World of Wonders Sideshow and now I'm at Double M Haunted Hayrides with my husband/partner with our own sideshow called Forbidden Oddities.
    We are a 10 in one sideshow with all the basics-bed of nails, fire eating/breathing, glass walking, a little bit of contortion and I even swallow swords. Our season at Double M ends in a few days soon and we don't know yet if we'll be able to make it down to Florida in February to work with WOW again so we're currently booking shows

    Hey y'all. I've posted on here a few times as Reverend Colt but in the last couple years I've started taking my walk with Christ Jesus much more seriously. "Reverend" was a nickname title I was given from a character I played very well a few years ago. Now days I think it's a little disrespectful to assume that title and chose to start a new one on here.

    Anyway, I'm 31, married to the greatest lady I've ever met and we're blessed to have 2 young children that are just AWSOME. I've worked seasonaly in this business for 14 years, mainly as a true actor but have also done a tremendous amount of writing, construction, and design. I've primarily worked with a good friend's haunted hayride but we disagreed on our vision for it. Plus I felt a little undervalued $$ for the time and energy I was putting in so when my daughter was born in 2004 I walked away.

    Since then I've done a little acting and consulting each season at The Haunted Pyramids www.hauntedpyramids.com in Lawndale, NC. If I can get all the ducks to line up I'll be opening my own first haunted attraction next season. We'll see if the partners and investors come on though. In the mean time, I'm just here to contribute what I've learned from experience and to be a sponge for your input.

    I look forward to anyone's feedback.

    Thanks

    honestly, from the small amount I know from people who have done this for nearly a decade, and from what I've seen, trailers are a better bet. They are more customizable, unique and changeable as you will want to revamp from time to time.
    The inflatable ones are better as a side attraction to your main haunt.

    good luck btw!

    Past & Current Characters: Insane Patient, Crazed Surgeon, Anonymous Doctor, "George", Dr. Pain, Evil Clown
    Haunt: Dr. Pain's Haunted Asylum in Salem VA.
    Location: Roanoke, VA.

    Ever since I was wee kid living in California, I always loved Halloween. Maybe it was the 30 sum Goosebumps books I grew up with (and still have) or all the horror movies I watched, but I couldn't get enough of the Halloween season. As a kid, I wanted to make the house more and more "haunted" for my fellow trick or treaters. At some point I wanted to make my house into a home haunt. However my parents refused to let me go with it, the jerks. Fastforward to 2005 (man, was it not that long ago?). It was the same year Dr. Pain's Haunted Asylum found a temporary home in a lumber mill that I first volunteered.

    In my first year, I was one of the insane patients; who loved power tools. In the second year, over the summer, I was the Anonymous Doctor who followed behind groups to keep em' in line. In October of the same year, I started out as a patient known as"George": Loves to hide in the walls and damage the Asylum's support beams. Then I was drafted as the Crazed Surgeon. He loves power tools. And somewhere along the way I was unoffically in the shoes of Dr. Pain.

    These days, I'm an evil clown in now what is called....Dr. Pain's Twisted Carnival.

    i have been doing a yard haunt for the last 10 years. ilive near an elementary school and a middle school. i have a 3 yr old princess who is my tester to seeif something is too scary. (like my $300 animated GEMMY witch that she named "Alice" last year is too scary this year!) i perfer spooky instead of gory. gory is too easy. i imagine it will be added as she gets older. her b day is 10-21 so she wil have some awesome parties over fall break. Misty is my other half, at first she was opposed to decorating for halloween but now she comes up with ideas.

    i grew up in so. cal... 15 min from Disneyland... i am in love with the haunted mansion and pirates of the carriben rides... being in so. cal i also fell in love with Knott's Scary (Berry) Farm i think that is where i got bitten by the haunt bug.

    my projectsthis year include:
    a haunted mirror- mirror tinted plexi glass in old frame w/ tv playing big scream tv DVD
    outdoor flying axworthy type ghost on a track
    graveyard
    coffin
    crystal ball w/ color changing led
    pumpkin lights- malibu yard lights w/ 97cent plastic pumpkins on them
    lighting as describe on skullandbone.com

    Hello my name is Mike (user name nabbm34) I just joined the site but have been watching it for a while. Me and my wife own a tree business in Knoxville Tn. that her dad established in 1971. We took over in 2006. Even though we do not own a haunt yet we will. We are in the planning stages now. We do travel all over the states to review haunted houses and get ideas. We have been doing this for 5 years now. My wifes birthday is Halloween so it is a special day all around. We do not just want to jump right into starting one without proper planning! We want to make it fun and scary. There is not a well established Haunt around this area. I really enjoy this site and if anyone has helpful suggestions it will be appreciatiated.

    After my ex-wife saw "Jeepers Creepers" in the theater she said she was really scared and remarked that Mr. Jeepers" reminded her of me!?
    Do I have big wings that pop out of my back?
    "But Jim, she was married to you for seven years, she should know if anyone does!"

    Do you have those wings popping from Your back?
    Just curious.

    *** Sorry, I thought I posted long ago... ***

    My name is Jeff Martin, and I DO NOT operate a haunt attraction. Nope. Instead I coordinate a very large live-action gaming event called True Dungeon. TD is a two-hour experience built in a 20,000 s.f. hotel ballroom that allows players to step inside a life-like Dungeons and Dragons experience. We are even sponsored by the owners of the D&D game (Hasbro), and we are the premier event at the world's largest gaming convention -- Gen Con Indy. We run 3,000 people through our sold-out event over a 3 day period in August.

    We have also done some events for Upper Deck Entertainment, and we are talking with other well-known companies to bring their IP to life.

    I get some GREAT ideas from this forum, and I find the people who frequent is very helpful and nice. Some day I may do my own haunted attraction, but since my huge event is in August, it is really bad timing.

    My day job is President of Dwaven Forge, LLC which is a really cool gaming miniatures company that makes the world's finest 3D miniature gaming terrain.

    I love my TWO jobs -- and I think I am the luckiest gamer on Earth!
