THANK YOU! From A Nightmare on Main Street

haunted house

Our Premiere Haunted House " A Nightmare on Main Street' is now just a happy memory. I had no idea what was really involved when I started this project rolling. But it was worth it in the end. We converted our 22 x 160' building into one awesome haunted house. Before I go much further I have to say that it would not have happened without the hard work and hundreds of hours of volunteered time of Bernie and Roann Kofron and James Hubers. You people are amazing!

We had 17 rooms in our haunted house:
 Spider Den
 Zombie Cage
Acme Mask Factory
Portrait Gallery
Fur Maze
Electric Chair
Children of the Corn
Dracula's Resting Place
Hansel, Gretel and the Witch
The Butcher
The Dot Room
Zombie Nursery
Birthday Party
House of 1000 Corpses
Captain Spaulding
and finally- The Girl from the Well

There were over 35 people working in the event each night from taking tickets, to acting as safety people, to the persons dressed to scare- and over 700 people walked through our house.

If it wasn't for the generous support of these people, and our sponsors, this haunted house might never had happened.

I need to thank our sponsors too- the money/materials you donated helped tremendously and we would not have been able to create such a good house without you!

In the end I am not sure who had more fun- the people walking through the house or those of us who were scaring them.  We are already planning next year's house and it promises to be even better than this year. We are even trying to figure out a little kid loop of not so scary stuff so they can enjoy it too. I will admit I was very surprised at the number of small children who went through the house and didn't seem to be forever scared by it. But then I wasn't the one putting them to bed later either.

So THANK YOU to everyone who helped us create this event!
