Would it be worth your Time? Only you can put a price tag on your own enjoyment. Personally, I like the idea. Especailly the shortcut for smaller kids.

I agree with Sickie Ickie - Fire would be a no-no.
In todays society, safety has to be the Number 1 priority when building any haunts or props.
Maybe at the shortcut point, make a sign to the shortcut: Enter for treats. and a sign pointing towards the longer route saying something like: Dare to enter here for more sizeable treats.
I applaud your creativity and think it's a good idea...except the fire, as Sickie mentioned. In addition, to give the opportunity to option out of the whole thing, or stay for something bigger, You could also keep tallies on how many pass up the whole deal as opposed to moving forward through the entire haunt.
