When planning your haunted house, think about how visitors will experience it. Begin by turning the lights down low. Make guests immediately fearful of what's to come by setting paper bags decorated with real grave rubbings (just use a crayon) along the walkway, with votive or LED candles inside and a smoke machine blowing fog along their path. If you can play music outside, complete the eerie scene with a soundtrack of ghost howls and bat chirps
