Haunt season has officially begun, and people across the country are lining up to have the crap scared out of them by actors in haunted attractions designed to terrify and delight.
It takes a lot of preparation and hard work to create and run these horror-themed Haunts, and yet many visitors act like fools when they're inside the attraction, which frustrates the crew.
Maybe they act like fools to hide their fear, or they think a Haunt is the kind of dark place where jackassery is acceptable, but whatever the reason for their behavior it's time they were taught the right way to act in a haunted house.
Don't chat with the actors, even if you know them, and don't take pictures of them or they may actually go mad with anger.
You should likewise refrain from asking the actors out on a date, no matter how hot you think they are, and calling them out before they jump out and scare a group just ruins the experience for everyone.
And speaking of shock blocking- don't ever declare you're not scared while inside a Haunt, or the actors will work twice as hard to scare the living daylights out of you...
