Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS A HAUNTED ROAD RALLYE? Our Haunted Road Rallye is a
test of your skill in… following directions, answering trivia, and
solving a mystery all while driving in your vehicle. Throw in a
few spooky haunted stops and you have our Haunted Road Rallye.
(Speed is not a factor nor is time and mileage; however, there
will be a cut off time.)
How long will the run be? The run
usually averages 28-32 miles and should take you about 2.5 hours.
However, we realize some may need more time and usually 4 hours
is allowed. If we realize a problem arises and more time is
needed, the RallyeMaster will make adjustments to the time as
needed. We hope to have everything graded and winners announced by
the bewitching hour of MIDNIGHT. But if it is too late and you WIN,
don’t worry, we will contact you as soon as possible.
What do I need for the Run? A
“Driver”, A “Navigator”, as many smart people as you can safely
fit in your car, at least a 1/2 tank of gas, a flashlight, a extra
dollar or two and a few refreshments of your choice. You may also
want to set up “lifelines”. (Don’t ask, you figure it out!)
Everything else you will need will be provided for you! (We also
think a clip board is quite handy!)
How old do you have to be? We have no
age restrictions, except, of course, the “Driver” has to have a legal
driver's license. Also, please realize you will be asked to make
several stops, get out of your car and participate in an activity
of some sort. Not every one has to participate but at the very
least your “Navigator” will have to. You may also be asked to
enter into a local bar. The barkeep realizes this is a planned
activity so you are allowed to enter, get your clue and leave.
What will it cost me? $8.00 Per
Person and maybe an extra buck or two, per car, along the way. Advanced tickets will be available in the center of
the park after your car is allowed on the grounds. Children under
the age of 12 are free.
Can I park my car in line and come back
later? Sure, BUT, once we start letting cars onto the grounds
to “line up”, at least one person will need to be in your car to
register. If you are not, you
will lose your place and may not be able to run in the Rallye.
Registration will begin PROMPTLY at 4:00PM.
After your car has received a number, been lined up ON THE GROUNDS and you have
received your "supplies", you are free to go where you want. However,
be sure to be back on the grounds at 6:05 SHARP as we will be getting the
play under way shortly. Then, EVERYONE who is going in your vehicle must be in
your vehicle and ready after the play by 6:35 PM SHARP. The first
car will be leaving THEN and we will not wait, so be ready!!!
What is a Gatekeeper? Gatekeepers
are very important! They keep you moving through the scenes
quickly. Gatekeepers do know what is expected of them, and will
do every thing they can to keep to a schedule. So, please pay
attention and do what they tell you.
usually require a key to enter
their stop .
What if I did not get to go through a
scene or stop? Every effort will be made to assure you have
time to get all the clues you need to solve the mystery. However
if a large number of people do not get to see a scene because of
an unforeseen problem, that clue will be graded as correct or as
wrong for everyone to assure everyone is treated fairly.
Rest assured, the
Gatekeepers will keep in
contact with the RallyeMasters to make sure everything is running
smoothly and will let us know if an adjustment will be needed.
Will there be bathrooms at the stops?
Most of the bars we stop at have restrooms for you to use BUT
please be respectful and don’t make a mess! We will also provide a
“Johnny-on-the-spot” at the main park and one at our haunted
Where did the term “RallyeMaster” come
from? As our Rallye grew larger and more elaborate, we
realized we had to have some form of control. Only the main
organizers would know everything about the mystery and would need
a title. About the same time we grew bigger, the popular TV sitcom
'Roseanne' was on TV. Each Halloween Roseanne would try to scare her
TV husband Dan Conner and he would do the same to her. Whichever
one was the best at it would be “The Master” of Halloween. It was
from here we added the word Rallye and thus “THE RALLYEMASTER”
Why do you spell the word rally, R A L L
Y E? It’s sort of an old English form and just to be
different, we guess.
I understand you have a food drive. How
does that work? For every one non-perishable food item you
bring us, you will receive a raffle ticket for a great assortment
of prizes. Once you enter into the park, you can follow the signs,
drop off your items and fill out the raffle ticket. You will be
notified at the end of the run or by mail over the next week if
you win something.
What happens after I am done with the run?
You will be instructed where to turn in your run. After that,
you can roast a Hot Dog or Marshmallow and enjoy Hot Chocolate
compliments of the L.P.A. and wait for the winners to be
