This application is for the setup and operation of Haunted Houses, Ghost Walks, and Corn Mazes.
For the purpose of this application a Haunted House is a temporary or permanent building or structure, or portion thereof, which contains a system that transports passengers or provides a walkway through a course so arranged that the means of egress are not apparent due to theatrical distractions, not visible due to low illumination, are disguised, or are not readily available due to the method of transportation through the building or structure.
A Ghost Walk/Corn Maze is an outdoor area similar to a Haunted House where egress to a public way is not readily identifiable.
This application must be submitted a minimum of three (3) weeks prior to event start date. An onsite inspection shall be made for final approval.
