Graveyard Swing: The Last Gig is a Long One

Travel through time to uncover the mysterious history of the New York Granite Cemetery.

Guests experienced Graveyard Swing from October 27-31, 2016 at The Secret Theatre in Long Island City, New York. After decades dreaming of building theme park attractions, I couldn’t beleive it when I finally pulled it off for the first time.

I learned so much building this show—in fact, I tried again with this exact same concept the following year. But this production will always be special to me. The last gig is a long one.

Very special thanks to Zander Barnard for painting the backdrops, helping to install the sets, and being there whenever I needed help. This would not have happened without him.
