I can definitely tell the difference between a group of people who are coming through with the mindset, "This isn't real, it's not scary, I'm not scared." And the group of people who get all excited, even though they know it's not real (obviously!), and come through with a good, and excited attitude. The good attitude group has SO much more fun than the other group! Even if they're not terrified, if I scare them, they'll jump or scream, then they'll smile and say "That was awesome!" and continue on their way! The group with the bad attitude, just walks through not even trying to get in the spirit of things, and gets mad when they do get scared!
Just go into it with the right mindset. You came here to have a good time didn't you? So don't go into it as a grumpy pants!
#2. Don't walk too fast.
Sometimes I'll have people walk through my room so fast, that I don't even have a chance to jump out and scare them! If you're walking so fast that you can't even see the different set-up of the rooms (which are AWESOME!), or get scared in every room, that's no fun!
#3. Don't walk too slow.
I know we've all had the experience of going to a Haunted House, and halfway through, getting stuck behind a slow group. It's the worst; you're forced to walk super slow behind a group of people that you don't know, and worst of all, they get all the scares!
So be courteous and don't walk so slow that you back up the whole house.
#4. Get lost in your imagination!
When you go to a haunted house, you will have a much more enjoyable experience if you let your imagination go wild! Really get lost in your imagination, and the scenes created for you in the haunt! It really is a whole experience, so get into it! It is SO much more fun!
#5. Don't be rude.
To the groups in front of you, the groups behind you, or the actors! You are paying us to scare you, so why would you get angry at us when we do our job?! Most nights we see over 2,000 people walk through, so trust me, we have heard every obnoxious, rude, and disgusting comment you could think of. Just play nice, we're all trying to have a good time! (:
Peace Love and Haunted Houses
