We run one haunt, we've acted in several and we've been through countless. The vast, vast majority of our haunt experience has been completely safe, wonderful and fun.
This is not about those experiences.
There have been a few times that the horror of the haunt got a little bit too real. Whether it was unsafe props, overly aggressive actors or just poorly-thought out construction, there have been moments we were genuinely worried about our safety when either working in or going through a haunted attraction.
So join us for this trip down memory lane as we go through some of the biggest real-life horrors we've seen in our years of haunting and either recoil at the horror or, at the very least, get some lessons about what not to do in your haunt.
