IAmA Professional Haunted House Actor with several years of experience, as well as an amateur makeup artist. AMA!
I have been working for several years as a professional Haunt actor. I got my professional level start at Valleyscare in Shakopee MN in 2008, although I had worked at smaller attractions off and on for a couple of years prior.
In 2010, I moved to Western Wisconsin, where I worked for two separate locations. The Asylum in Eau Claire in 2010 as Patchwork, and the Village of Terror in 2011 as Leather Face.
The year is now 2012, and I am working at a Haunt near the Twin Cities of MN.
Last year alone I had 372 visually confirmed pants wetters, five people who lost bowel control, and one person who grabbed their chest and went to the hospital with signs of a heart attack.
Edit: WOW! My first Front Page post! Awesome guys. I am enjoying the feedback here. Have to go start makeup in an hour, and then head for Haunt...
I will answer up to that point, and then can continue more tomorrow morning if there are questions left unanswered.
Edit 2: Off to scare little children and old ladies... Come see me, if you dare... And if you do come to visit, please don't go all "zOMG YOU WERE THE GUY ON REDDIT!"... Just come and enjoy... :D I'll be back tomorrow with more AMA if there are more questions...
Thanks for a wonderful time!
Edit 3: One more for the night, then I am out to scare. :D Enjoy. http://imgur.com/YXp5C
Edit 4: Great night at haunt. Twisted an ankle, and broke my oak staff... Time to replace it with the spare... Also, I have caught up on all questions and am headed for bed now. Thanks all!
Final edit: Reddit Gold! Thank you! Also: Interviewed for a newspaper article today in another country because of this post. I NEVER expected this to take off this way. Thank you all for a VERY warm welcome to Reddit.
