A day at the renaissance festival can be a lot of fun. However, if you're a haunt owner or builder, it's also a chance to do some really good research and pick up a few pointers.
The reason is that haunted attractions are increasingly moving to a more festival atmosphere, trying to capture as much customer time and money as they can.
To this end, ren fests have been doing it amazingly successful for decades, all the while operating a seasonal attraction and deailng with many of the same challenges and pitfalls we do.
So we compiled a short and woefully incomplete list of things that haunters can learn from ren fests and put them into this episode.
This Week's Episode Includes:
- Conference Reminders
- Quick Update on Our Haunt
- The Reason for the Episode
- The Flow of Human Traffic
- Always Something to Do

Though we suspect a lot of you ARE big ren fest fans, whether you are or not this is an episode you do NOT want to miss!
