    Hello all! In addition to Air Cannons, I am proud to announce the addition of a Air Horn Blaster and a manual trigger to complete your props for those who choose not to use a prop controller. I sold 18 of the air cannons last year and all purchasers reported they where happy with there...

    EDIT: OK, we are down to needing $2000 for the Susan G Komen 3-day for the Cure, so I'm willing to let the WHOLE haunt go for $2000. You get walls, props, two huge bins of costumes, makeup, lights, EVERYTHING for $2000. The walls, squeeze walls (claustrophobia hall), air cannon, and drop wall...

    I'm looking for pirate sounds effect that I can play on a loop on Halloween. i have found several short sound effects but a 30 second loop is going to drive me crazy! Has anyone heard a longer sound effect - ocean, ship, fighting, cannons...?

    Finally had a little time to build something for this years haunt. Here is my take on the Air Cannon. Used a 1/4" regulator to set incoming PSI as well as a 1/2" regulator to set the outgoing blasts.

    Well, as you may be able to tell, I have been on holiday from work today so had a whole day of crafting! I managed to get my snoring pirate working (posted video earlier) and I have now found a cheap and easy way of making what I think are not too bad cannon balls that have been sat at the...

    We are starting to downsize our pirate decorations and are selling our 6' dinghy with small mast and one of our cannons. The dinghy could probably be repaired to be seaworthy again with little effort, but she only sailed in our front yard at Halloween :) The cannon is 24"x24" at the base, 20"...

    Hi all ! I am doing a pirate ship haunt this year and I am in the middle of making the cannon. I have the l.e.d.'s rigged and a motion sensor to fire them. I built the pnumatic / mineral oil smoke machine from another post and was surprised at how well it worked! :D However, my origonal plan...

    Well another year passed and my pro haunt (Haunted Corn) didn't happen again so I decided to upgrade my pirate display a bit. Please let me know what you think. Here's the 2.0 version of my skeleton pirate costume. I figured the costume shouldn't look too new so I heavily distressed it using...

    I know most of us hate Trunk-or-Treat (Yes, I'm not entirely fond of it)... but it does have fun potential if you just use a little imagination. My church had their Halloween party/festival tonight and wrapped the evening up with Trunk-or-Treat. I didn't have any backup tonight-- it was just...

    I needed to control my new Chauvet 1300 Hurricane fogger using a Boobox Pico Boo F104. I looked around the forum and saw a number of posts on the Fitco and cheap timers. Those are very helpful, but my new fogger has DMX control with a 5 pin connecion to the fogger. The PicoBoo Controller is...
