Every haunt that has a backstory has a process for coming up with it. This week, we wanted to share ours and take a long look at how we come up with the story and how it ties into the construction of our haunt.
So how do we come up with a new back story every year and weave it into the fabric of our haunt? Should the backstory follow the haunt or the haunt follow the story? We don't claim to have all of the answers but we know what's worked for us over the past decade.
So take a seat, grab your brainstorming notebook and let the ideas flow. We're talking about our process this week and maybe, just maybe, passing a few ideas along the way.
Here's a look at what's on tap this week:
