  1. A little of both! Thanks for the compliment! -Hauntguy
  2. Brad, I like it! Maybe just change some of the corny names around to something more real... and this would be awesome for KI to use! Kudos man, good job! -Hauntguy
  3. OK... look... if KI were to upcharge haunt for $5, which I think is very reasonable and most people won't mind paying it for haunt. This is what would happen: Let's say on a haunt night KI brings in 30,000 people. So let's say only half pay for haunt... that's 15,000 people. At $5 a person: $5 x 15,000 = $75,000 That's $75K in ONE night! That alone would pay for a BRAND NEW HAUNT!!! Ok, lets do more math. Let's say of the 12 nights of HAUNT, only about 75% gets 30K people ore more.. So we'll take the estimate of $75,000 and 8 nights of haunt: $75,000 x 8 = $600,000 That's $600,00
  4. "...Start your own park and try it!..." I might just have to try it! Also, you'll note that the BEST years of the event is the first... when it was Fearfest... and when is was an upcharge! Maybe if there were to be an upcharge you'd might see some more, REALLY NEW attractions at KI instead of the normal "left overs". You also can't bring up the differences in location and parks... both events (HH and HHN) are seasonal events that, almost, have the same timeframe of operation. Now, weather may be more of a factor here than in Orlando... but if the shows at KI were like HHN's, weather would
  5. Obviously none of you have been to Halloween Horror Nights! Even if KI were to charge $5 and you get an orange wristband... that's all they need! No need for different colors, the wristband would just get you into the haunts, everyone could get the rides! -Hauntguy
  6. I agree... KI should charge seperatly for HH... for both pass holders AND general adm. Maybe $10 for pass holders, $15 for general... that'd be ideal! -Hauntguy
  7. Last piece to be installed... of the whole ride? Maybe KI is planning a big event for the last piece to be put into place or something? That'd kinda be cool! -Hauntguy
  8. ^ You know, you mention that and it makes me wonder? I would have LOVED to see Cornstalkers really put into and developed in Rivertown, like starting around the entrance of ST and ending around Tombstone Terror-tory. Just, the whole area... one massive fearzone! I would have liked to see wasteland developed more in AZ... I think the theme of it really just sits nicer in AZ, think about... Crushed cars (some stacked), 55 gallon barrels everywhere, camo netting, beacon lights and strobes, sirens, crazy demented club that has fallen to hell.... it just all fits; or at least a nicer than Cornstalk
  9. But you can't judge or base the quality of a show or event on the amount of people in line! I've seen numerous shows that are HORRIBLE, yet have 3 hour lines! -Hauntguy
  10. You want to talk numbers? Look at Frightworld in Buffalo... in one season will do around 16K people, but has 5 attractions under ONE roof and every haunt is comparible to HHN... and they change EVERY YEAR!!! Now let's talk! -Hauntguy
  11. First, for those who know... I told you so! ... lol! Also, you CANNOT compare haunts to roller coaster, you simply can't. People aren't as dumb as you think, they know KI doesn't change any of the haunts around, they know that! Now, they'll still go to do the new haunt, but thy figure while they're there they'll do all the old ones too! I will ALWAYS think, from an attractions stand point, that HH at KI will ALWAYS be mediocre. Why? Because look around at other haunts... Look at: -Dent Schoolhouse -Shoolhouse in Akron -USS Nightmare -7 Floors of Hell -etc. etc. Each of these hau
  12. Yeah, but thank god my shovel lasted through! ... Also, I must say that I didn't shoot ANY of the footage in this video, I merely put the footage together in a manner I seemed to be, well, really cool! haha.. -Hauntguy
  13. Well kids, September is here... the days are getting shorter... and for some reason a mass amount of "dead people" have been lurking around Kings Island. Yes, yes, yes... It's that frightening time of year again...Halloween Haunt! 2009!So, to "get you in the mood"... or put you out of one; here is a short video I made LAST YEAR, kinda a tribute to haunt! Anyways, enough rambling... here's the vid: Happy haunting... and sweet dreams! HAHAHAHAHAHA.... -Hauntguy
  14. It just depends on the person... different things scare different people. For me, it has to be a QUICK LOUD STARTLE... that'll get me really good. But nothing else really scares me. As for any more hints and stuff... TOMARROW I'M DROPPING THE NAME OF A NEW ATTRACTION!!!! Stay tuned. -Hauntguy
  15. I've seen some done right... but let's hope! -Hauntguy
  16. Ty, I think your on to something! ... -Hauntguy
  17. ^ Now your speaking my language! -Hauntguy
  18. I'll be there for sure on opening night! YAY! -Hauntguy
  19. I LOVE IT WHEN PEOPLE SCREAM!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.... -Hauntguy
  20. Well, KI will have a MAJOR NEW HAUNT to distract people away from CB... hopefully the same mistake WON'T happen again! -Hauntguy
  21. Dane, Only because it was "new"... just like anything "new" at a park! Also, it goes to show... sex sells. I'm not saying that it was the worst, or best... or most confusing... just that, it could be MUCH better if were to actually become scary. -Hauntguy
  22. Brad, I don't think Matt was "stereo-typin" at all.. he's absolutely right! With that audience, and Club Blood, it kinda just goes. KI is playing to the type of people that attend HH! Now, don't get me wrong, this isn't the "bad crowd", it's actually the right crowd. It's the people that SPEND MONEY!!!! So, whatever works... works. As for CB, there is a big difference between being scary and being crude! CB WAS NOT SCARY!! PERIOD!! Crude, yes... Sexy, yes... Graphic, HELL YES!!! But if that's what was intended by the park, IT WORKED! But for haunt and to be scary, IT FAILED!!! I personally
  23. Hey guys, I know some of you have them, but I'm looking for any and all pictures of a control panel used for rides and/or coasters! Thanks much. -Hauntguy
  24. "... Think BIG. Well, not that big." -Hauntguy
