Haunted Houses in Tulsa | Focusing on the fears
Episode two haunted houses in Tulsa. How did we come up with insanity farms? One of the biggest reasons why we started in Santa you farms haunted houses and Tulsa is because we wanted to offer a unique experience for customers that were a little bit older than some of the activities we offer in Pumpkin town farms. Um, but you know, we had a lot of teenagers and college kids that would come with their families and they’d have a good time because they can go down the slides at Pumpkin town. They can do a lot of the activities inside Pumpkin town, but a lot of the times they want an experience that is a haunted attraction and we decided to come up with insanity farms, which is a haunted house in Tulsa and we created this based off the ideas of people’s fears. We didn’t want to come up with something that was blood and guts, a lot of Gore.
We really wanted to focus in on people’s fears. Some of those fears that we focused in on were of like animals and insects. We have an area where we have snakes. We have an area where we have roaches, we have an area where he have spiders, um, we have clowns. Uh, we have an area that makes you feel like you’re claustrophobic. Um, so there’s a lot of things that we focused in on rather than just, um, you know, walking up and somebody being blood and guts on you. Oh, we really want to stay away from that and focus in on people’s fears. So with that, we put a pencil to paper and we started on our design for insanity farms haunted houses in Tulsa.
Uh, it was way, way, way harder than I ever expected. I thought, you know, we’re just going to draw it out, whip him up, and uh, you know, set up everything. It was totally the opposite of that. Everything we did, we built from ground up this year and we put it in the electric. We put in the power, we put in every single thing in that field for insanity of farmers. We build this season. Uh, so to say the least. This was a really, really, really physical season on a, on my dad and I, uh, we clocked 70 hour work weeks just to get this thing set up and done as well as setting up Pumpkin town. Haunted Houses in Tulsa, those things are not as easy as some people think. A lot of people think we just show up in September and throw it up and it’s easy and we, you know, and off we go, but it’s really a year round job and we focus in and we try to get everything the best we can for our, uh, so we started the design in January and we really, like I said, we really wanted to focus in on people’s fears.
I didn’t want an offer experience that was just straight blood and guts, like some of the other haunted houses and Tulsa. So we knew we were going to do a hybrid corn maze. We just didn’t know what we were going to call it. We ended up calling it the field of fear and we, we built all these tunnels and we built a lot of cool attractions inside the field of fear. Um, one of our biggest attractions in it is the boar head, um, and it’s a giant puppet that has Haunted Houses in Tulsa its mouth moves, his eyes glow and it pops out at the end of the field of fear. Uh, that was a really popular attraction for us this year and it was a really cool experience I think because we have music that plays, that has, you know, Al’s Houdini and coyotes yet being, and I’m kind of like a banjo playing in the background.
It’s a really cool experience. We wanted to make it a farm themed haunted haunted house in Tulsa. Uh, so we really focused in, on the theme of scarecrows. We focused in on the theme of, you know, farm equipment. We did some really cool scenes inside the field of fear. So that was one of the biggest, um, one of the biggest attractions that we had to build this year. The second one was the Zombie apocalypse and this was a really hard experience to build as well. We had to put big electric poles in the ground and we built a netting all the way around it and to make sure that the paint moles wouldn’t fly out into Pumpkin town and it was very difficult because of the wind in Oklahoma. Haunted Houses in Tulsa, we also had to convert to different containers into our experience. One was a holding room that has videos that play, that explained the experience and what they, what they should expect.
And then the second container is worth all the live action is we have a 12 different paintball guns that are mounted in there where customers can get on him and shoot at the zombies. It’s a five minute, you know, really intense, really cool show where you’re going to get hit in the face with water. Haunted Houses in Tulsa, you’re going to be able to shoot paint balls at live actors. Uh, you’re going to have the smell of decay as well as gun gunpowder and lots and lots of fog. So that one’s a really cool experience as well. We spent a lot of time developing that, making sure it was up and running. It was a lot of electronics. I think it was 42 different electric outlets that we had to use and to say the least, I learned a lot about how to do electric as well as building things as well.
The last attraction chaos was actually the first thing we built for um, and sandy forms. Um, it took over I think 2000 pallets to build and it was extremely difficult to design it. We wanted to create a maze for the customers get lost into, but we didn’t want to make it small, so we created a really large pallet maze that we put strobe lights in the corners and we had really loud, chaotic music that played and we wanted to give a disorientation to the customers, Haunted Houses in Tulsa, that some of the other haunted houses and Tulsa don’t offer. Uh, like I said earlier, we had chuckles the clown that would hide out inside chaos and really, really scared the customers as they walked through it. We’re going to add a lot more to it next year as well. So we’re looking forward to that as well as the other attractions that we offer.
That’s one of the biggest things for us is we always want to add to what we have. We’ve always added to Pumpkin town new attractions every year and we’re going to do the same for insanity farms. We’re always going to add to it and we’re always going to make it better and we want to make it one of the best haunted houses and Tulsa. And that’s my pledge to my customers as well as anybody else listening to this. So we began to design in January, Haunted Houses in Tulsa, we started building things in March and April and then we had a two month low where we started working on stuff for Pumpkin town and then July hit and we planted all of our stuff and we started building all the tunnels and putting them out and putting it on the electric and everything out there. Um, it was a long, tedious task, but I’m, I’m really proud of what we built and I think it’s one of the best haunted houses and Tulsa.
And one of the best things is that with all this hard work, we get to keep adding to it. And I’m really excited about what next year will bring after we built the haunt, we needed to focus in on finding some employees. So we searched craigslist or we put up ads on craigslist. I’m Linkedin, tried to reach out to as many people as possible and we found a really cool and really did a really great crew that helped us out for the season. Haunted Houses in Tulsa, they, they, they came in, a lot of them were first time actors, so we had to do a lot of training with them. But um, in the end I think we had some of the best actors for haunted houses and Tulsa and they did a great job interacting with the customers that came in. They did a great job working at their areas they were supposed to in.
And again, for first time actors, I think they did a great job. And each year they’ll come back and we’ll get better and better. So we’re really excited about that. And we’re really excited about the future of insanity farms. We, uh, we expect and we want to be the best haunted houses and Tulsa. And we want to provide a really unique experience for families and groups and I think by having both Pumpkin town and into sandy farms, I think we’ve done that. Um, so in conclusion, I think that, um, I wanted to explain to you guys how much hard work went into the design and building and sandy farms into one of the best haunted houses and Tulsa. And I wanted to let you know what our future holds for insanity farms. So thank you so much.
