The Haunted House Tactical Map
We all remember Home Alone, right? Good old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) knew he was in trouble when he had burglar’s to deal with, so how did he approach it? Well, after a quick spiritual introspective, he made a floor plan and mapped out his strategy.
I know it sounds dumb, but keystone to your Haunted House execution will be a floor plan. Every great General knows that to win you need a map and a plan. Get a hold of some large butcher paper, map out the area of your house, make a list, and start sketching your approach.
Once you’ve mapped out the premises, use varying colors and pictures to indicate the flow of your house. You want your Haunted House visitors to go through in the right pace. The occasional stop it crucial. Escapees will have a hard time getting passed the best parts. You can make copies of your floor plan and distribute them to all the major players in your home spun freak fest to be sure that everyone is on the same page.
With a bit of focus and a lot of creative ideas, you can come up with something sure to make a splash.
Just do us a favor, don’t rely on the grapes in the bucket technique. It’s not that good anymore.
In the near future we’re going to feature some of the most widely recognized houses around just so you can see how they celebrate the Holiday.
