wow, people are loving this house and attendance is up two and a half times over last year. Cipha Sounds from Hot 97 was there on Friday night and it was a ton of fun. he is a great DJ. Hot 97 night was amazing. a kazillion people came, Cipha was broadcasting live from the house, and our ears are still ringing. we had such a new york moment on friday as well. Hot 97 sent down a 73 piece marching band to perform outside the haunted house. we had no idea they were coming, but there they were standing on the sidewalk with their tubas and flag dancers. It weas 9 PM, and all of a sudden a powerful marching band version of Thriller started blaring and filling up the streets of the LES. people were gathering from the whole neighborhood to watch, and people were poking their little pointy heads out the windows. it was pretty amazing... that no one issued a noise complaint and had us arrested. maybe its a case for the feds.
anyway, we have fangoria night coming up on thursday the 11th (and the giveaways for that night are amazing!).
tickets are sincerely selling fast from this point on, so don't wait a few days before. we also are selling tickets for this wednesday and thursday at smarttix a real good discount. use the codeword HUMP when purchasing your tickets at and you will get $15 off the SuperHaunt ticket (normally $35 at the door - includes both the house and maze). this is absolutely the last time we are going to do anything like that. once we get into this weekend forget about it. we are damn near already sold out for many performances!
finally, nightmare backstage is coming up on october 15th. this is actually going to be an awesome event. me and my concept team and designers are going to answer any questions you might have, do demonstrations, and then take you through the house and show you how things work in the house. show you all the secrets. like a DVD special feature "making of", "behind the scenes", "featurette", "sneak peak", "inside look", "first look", "you saw it here first", "this is how we do it", "come and get some", "tuna fish sandwich" kind of thing. it is totally worth the $20. that is an amazing tuna fish sandwich we aren't talking about here.
