    Halloween Props

    ^ thank you. Could I pull off a projected image of a flashing lightning bolt in the middle of the room? Has anyone ever done anything like this room before?

    Great Ideas. Googled Ankle Ticklers-this might work. I found ones you can buy looking for homemade diy instructions. The lightning is going to be more tricky. This is going to be great if I can pull it off. I am working on the script now. Any other neat interactive ideas to put in are...

    Thanks a bunch. The laser is awesome! But....I was looking for the design where you have the spinning mirror and one green laser light. Does it hurt the eyes?

    My family has done a home haunt for 20 years but last year was our first haunt at the farm. Here are a two of the home haunt a few years ago. This year I am going to make the conscious effort to take pictures. I just realized I do not take pictures of all of the crazy stuff we have done over...

    Halloween Props
    This might be a great marketing tool for a professional haunt. You could put your haunts number on the side. People will call and you can advertise your haunt and give directions. I was thinking of creating a "news reel" footage of a zombie outbreak and posting that on my website for this...

    I loved watching them bring the peices together. vacuum form was very cool. BUT.. Why can't it be about the creating part of it.. The drama-CAN"T STAND HOW 70% of the show was about the infighting and drama. HATE THAT PART. I think Scify missed the bus...people who turn into this show are...
