Beallsville, PA (AP)--
The small town of Beallsville is about to be taken to the big time, Michael
Ownership of Castle Blood Productions has just announced a transition plan
in which Michael Eisner, current "head mouse" of entertainment
megacorporation Disney, will take over operations for Castle Blood
Productions, known largely for their interactive Halloween Adventure Tours
(tm) that happen on a seasonal basis along Historic Route 40 in
Eisner, who announced his planned departure from Disney this past week, is
excited about the challenge of working with a new corporation despite its
considerably smaller scale of operation.
"I'm looking forward to the challenge of making a destination out of a
relatively-unknown town with a small population . There will be a 10-year
plan and we hope to kick off 2010 as the 'Castle Blood Decade,' with major
expansion into resort properties that are a fully-immersive experience. The
market for Halloween year-round is such an untapped market, and we can
really capitalize on it with the Castle Blood Method as the core principle
for our projects," said Eisner during a press conference from his private
yacht anchored just offshore of the Isle of Lucie in the Caribbean Sea.
In addition to the haunted attraction, Castle Blood Productions currently
produces props, costumes, and even entire haunted houses for professionals
in the entertainment industry. Because of current non-disclosure agreements
with his current employers, Eisner could not confirm rumors that
previously, Castle Blood Productions had been contacted for a major
rennovation of all four of the Disney properties' famous "Haunted Mansion"
attractions featured at the theme parks in Orlando, Anaheim, Paris, and
Tokyo, as well as a franchised version of the attraction to operate at an
amusement pier in Asbury Park, NJ.
"We're thrilled to be working with Mr. Eisner," comments Alec "Ricky" Dick,
co-owner of Castle Blood Productions and the company's living icon, Gravely
MacCabre. "We knew that he had what we wanted in a CEO, and honestly feel
that he'll be the best Non-Disney addition to an already great and talented
Karen Dick, co-owner of Castle Blood Productions, was unavailable for
comment due to tightened security regulations on overseas aircraft.
Representatives promised to collect a statement after her arrival in Peru,
where she plans to gather data for a yet-to-be-named project related to
both domestic and international operations of Castle Blood Productions.
Among things on the "short list" for the next five years of Castle Blood
are the acquisition of the land and mineral rights for the town of
Beallsville and some yet-unnamed surrounding communities, the re-opening of
a local hotel and accompanying cottage homes as the company's first resort
community, and research and development for the world's first haunted
attraction water park, which will boast the claim that "You've never been
so wet and scared in all of your life."
"Water and spooky stuff just naturally go together. I don't know why
somebody hasn't thought of this angle before," says Eisner.
Why make the announcement now, nearly six months from the opening of the
"Simple," says Dick. "We are doing our best to push haunted entertainment
to the forefront, making it in the minds of our customers twelve months a
year. That, and what better day to make such an announcement than the
ninety-first day of the calendar year?"
We couldn't agree more! Best of luck to Castle Blood Productions and its
