So I volunteered at my town’s haunted house last Friday.
While I was on duty I tried to scare someone and they kicked me.
They kicked me.
After we were done I talked to a couple other people who also volunteered and they shared similar stories of getting punched/hit/pushed/kicked/ect.
Guys, when you go through a haunted house; you shouldn’t touch the actors. Please, don’t touch, kick, punch, push, or do any other kind of physical violence to the people who are trying to scare you. Don’t stop and lecture us about how you aren’t afraid of us, don’t swear at our faces and flip us off, and please understand that we’re just trying to do our job. A lot of what the actors do is actually just to make sure you get from one room to the other quickly and safely in a fashion that you paid for. We have to make sure you get to the next room in time to have the next group to come through, so please don’t stop and have a annoying conversation with us, or just stop in the middle of the room because you think it’s funny.
Please respect the actors, and the haunt. Thank you.
^ this! although my more social characters don’t mind conversation on slow nights (Just try and get Chatty Cassie Cannibal to shut up!)
But really thought DON’T HURT HAUNT ACTORS, THEY ARE PEOPLE THAT YOU PAID TO SEE DO THEIR JOBS. Do you go around punching garbage men or kicking cashiers for doing their jobs? Care to go around flipping off movie stars (they’re actors too after all)?
Seriously, guys. I have a LOT of friends that work at a couple different haunted attractions, and I would be PISSED if someone decided to fuck with them to the point of violence. That is NOT ok.
PLEASE Holy fuck do not hurt actors at these attractions. I cannot say the (literally) COUNTLESS times that I, my friends and coworkers with me have gotten punched, kicked, and I’m not joking even female actresses groped and pinned down before security could respond.
It’s awful. Especially because being in management now, there are kids as young as 11 who work at my attraction and have been hurt by grown ass people. Please be respectful, we are all just doing our jobs.
Oh yeah so after each night of haunting we have dance parties!
This is one of our many rituals at my haunt that has gone on for years, along with going to our local 24-hour diner with our faces still covered in makeup.
Is there any rituals or things that your haunt does after a long night?

What age were you when you started haunting?
