I think that the sound is off during the day; because it's quite loud and generally can be heard throughout the ride if it's on. Since the offices are right across from the stunt; one could figure it may not be a means of saving money, but of keeping some peace and quiet for the office workers during the hours where the ride experiences a lower number of patrons.
And also know that the ride I took after the the one I filmed my "Busy Summer Night POV", the Sound was working properly again.
I think they do it for noise reasons rather then money saving.
The electric chair sound is never turned off, especially for monetary reasons. The HH makes upwards of $3000 per day, so cost is not an issue. Because the electric chair uses an auto-reverse/auto rewind tape deck, the lack of sound when the stunt activates usually means the deck is either reversing or rewinding, which means no sound during that time. Although it may be a coincidence that a lot of videos and experiences document no sound, I would not rule out the fact that maybe the deck was out of commision at the time.

Sorry to have to say this, but every ride-through for me during the day, his sound was off. It was a real bummer. Only when it was completely dark outside did it come on. Not trying to prove Brandon wrong, just reporting what happened - still not assuming anything!!
My haunted attraction for 2012 is called RavenCroft (at Cobham Manor).
Brandon: The forum has so many new visitors, but so few new posts! Come on people! Let's get the conversation started. Summer is almost here!

HHMacabre: Hi everyone! Did I hear word of new additions in the ride? How is the Mineshaft?

Brandon: Yes, there are supposed to be two new effects installed this year. I don't have any insight yet but will share the information once I receive it. I don't think anything has been done with the Shaft.

Brandon: There have also been three additional mini shooting galleries installed around the park. Pics and information to come a later date at ochh.net.
