Wellers 2019 Haunt
Hours of work
This year we decided to go with a biohazard/industrial waste theme and it turned out pretty well I think. Nearly everything handmade, except things like skeletons of course. The tall pipe int he beginning of the vid has a sound of a monster down in the deep echoing up. Kids can hear it as they walk up the steps. On the right side we have a Skelton cranking a drive wheel that pulled the chain to open the furnace door. Inside were full size candy bars.
How it worked was, the trick-or-treated would come to me at the door, I would present to anyone older than 8yrs and option. They could take the small candy and move on or step over to my wife and try to solve a Halloween riddle to earn a large bounty. If they failed they could take the walk of shame back to me for a small candy. Few had to walk back.
Everyone had great fun and we gave away over 200 pieces of candy and 90 full sizers. It really has turned into an event for all. Great fun.
