FREE Cost Estimate

The question that I always get from potential clients about hiring me to consult and design their attractions for them is “How much will it cost?” Unfortunately, until I know a great deal about where, when, how big, what theme and how detailed the client wants the attraction to be, I simply don’t know. I can say that if you hire me to everything from coming up with the name to the event, story-line, design, working drawings, onsite overseeing of installation and general consulting that my fee averages between $5 and $7 a square foot. But how does that break down if you only want me to do part of the project?

So, I now offer a FREE Haunted House Cost Estimate to anyone looking to hire me for consulting or design of their project. All I need from you is:

1) Will the attraction be open all year or summer seasonally or will it be an October seasonal event?

2) How many attractions will be in the event, and what is the size of each attraction. (in square feet or square meters)?

3) What is the desired level of quality/detail of the finished attraction (High, Medium or low)?

4) Do you have themes in mind for each of the attractions?

5) What is the hourly wage of a “handyman/rough carpenter” in your area, (Even if you plan to build it yourself)?

Different themes will have slightly different costs and detail level, but given the above parameters I can provide you with what it should cost to build a custom, one of a kind haunted attraction, with original theme and story line to the size and quality you specify, ASSUMING you hire me to design and over see the project. On the finished cost proposal each phase of the design and construction process is itemized so that you can subtract costs from phases that you don’t need my help with or decrease costs if you are building the attraction yourself.

You can then plug this estimate into your business plan and feel comfortable that you can build your attraction for the provided amount.
