Haunters are always looking for ways to increase the scare factor of their attractions, but there are only so many giant animatronics that the budget can handle. In this session, industry veteran Leonard Pickel will delve deep into the psyche of the human brain and share psychological tips and tricks that he uses to increase the scare factor of the over 200 fright attractions he has designed for clients over his 40 year history of scaring people. This class will cover how to use the patrons' imagination against them to increase the effectiveness of existing scares and use psychology to create new scares in your attraction.
