These are the fun jobs of working in the haunted house, while not needing to interact with guests. Most of these jobs are behind the scenes controlling props, electronics, effects, lights, or sound. It's the people who make things run smoothly, and a great place to start working if you're not too comfortable with acting. Techs help in setting up the attraction, and after the season is over, help tear it down. It is a very fun environment to work in, plus you learn a lot about tool usage and carpentry along the way. People interested in this position must be able to work unloading, lifting up to around 25 lbs., moving things, screwing walls together, painting, etc. Electrical or carpentry skills a plus.
