2011 Year in review

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

APD_Aresst_Actors 2011 was a roller coaster of a year, every type of weather you could imagine from snow storms that threatened the Super-Bowl to record setting days above 100 degrees this summer. The economy, elections and our Troops seemed to monopolize the headlines in 2011.

The Human Shield

  human-shield
 
This has to be one of the most common occurrences I see at the Boneyard Haunted House. Friday night October the 15th 2011 I am at the exit of the Haunt getting customer feedback, how was it? What was your favorite actor? etc. So I approach this one couple and start to ask my standard questions when the Husband starts in.. ” Well it was OK, I guess… Nothing much scares me” and the whole time his wife has that look in her eye, (if your married, you know what I mean)
So, the wife stays quite during her husbands speech, and then tells me that it was great as she grabs her husbands arm and leads him to their car.

So, I make note of the time and after we close for the night I decide to review the video footage from our “Haunt-Cam” and guess who I find using his wife as a human shield? Yep! Mr. “It wasn’t that scary” This guy not only grabs his wife, Yanks her in front. he then hides his head behind her shoulder. The best part of the entire thing. His wife never threw him under the bus. She just stood there and let him tell his story.. {Or at least till they got in the car}

QR Codes & Haunted Houses

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

QR Codes and sms texting discounts

QR Codes have been around since 1994, originally used for tracking parts in the automotive industry, Quick Response Codes were slow to make their way into the consumer market. It wasn’t until the widespread use of smart phones that the codes began showing up in public.

Haunted House QR codes on wrapped vehicle graphics

We first started using Quick Response Codes for promotional tracking in 2009, a very basic code that directed users to our website www.theBoneyard.org.

Our plan was to place the code on print advertisement and business cards. Almost immediately we met with resistance, printers had not seen them before, they could not guaranty the codes would scan in their ads. Bottom line – people fear the unknown. On top of that very few smart phone users at the time were familiar with the codes and were reluctant to download the needed app. Read More

CBS 11. Joel Thomas explores the Boneyard Haunted Housein Arlington. Reporter: Dan Hall runs the haunted house in the abandoned sears building. We work hard all year to perfect our scares and technique for a short time in the Halloween season…

infarred cameras pick up unexplained objects

Upstairs is a massive, dark, unused floor. When we first acquired the building, and the mall maintenance guys and mall security handed the keys over us to, they jokingly told us don’t go upstairs. Reporter: soon, Mr. Hall began to think he was not the first person to haunt the building.

In the last year, there’s been two or three things I can’t explain. The rolls of receipts were stacked up on the table. And one of them came rolling across the floor at me one day. It just brushed my foot. Reporter: now, the floor is littered with the paper. Another event was downstairs. One of the trash cans just started moving toward us. Read More.
