So I was alerted to a slideshow about haunted houses today in one of my email alerts. These usually get a quick delete since usually they are unrelated to actual haunted houses. This time I found a great little slideshow on haunted house business information by Leonard Pickel who is a haunt consultant to the haunt industry. He goes through what sets a haunt apart from a great haunt. The presentation touches on key factors to a great haunt and then goes into various design tips and scare tips. The architectural tips are wonderful and I can only imagine how much information is lacking from when this was given in person with Leonard actually touching on each slide. Other topics that are presented in the slide are pathways, lighting & sound, code compliance, construction and at the end is a gem of information from a focus group listing what teenagers and young adults do not find scary and what they do find scary. So if you have any plans to get into running a haunted house or are just in the planning stages and learning there are some great tips to be pulled just from this slideshow.
