  1. Haunted house on Google Maps

    General Halloween
    Anyone ever see their home on Google Maps and realize that the photo is from October?!?! I used GPS on my phone to check for traffic issues on my route home the other day and inadvertently found that the “Street View” for the area was taken in October! Excellent! For some extended time that will...

  5. Electronic/Software: Motors

    Halloween Props
    Looking to do a Leering Skeleton prop and something else. I already invested in one wiper motor, 12 volt power and speed control. Looking to go a cheaper route for the second one. I read the cheap synchronous motors are good but get hot???? It will need to run for 4 hours straight. Would...
  6. FINALLY finished taking it all down!

    General Halloween
    Since Halloween, we have worked long hours on every weeknight and every weekend and it's taken us until last night to take it all down and put away. There's actually still about an hour of work that needs to be done to put away the last few things, but it's finally done! We still have the...
  7. Electronic/Software: Spirit Graveyard Lantern Hack-My first hack!

    Halloween Props
    On an earlier thread I asked if anyone knew how to make the sound activated Spirt Halloween Graveyard Lanterns stay constantly lit instead of the momenary light after being activated by sound. A few replies, but nothing concrete on how to do it, so I decided to take it apart myself and see what...
  8. Local Spirit Halloween - Not So Much Spirit

    General Halloween
    I know the local Spirit Franchisees deal with alot of BS for a month and a half, but it's a shame they would just rather throw the displays away than make some extra $. Was in the store in the morning, bought some display animatronics and asked what they would do with the windmill, etc if they...
  9. Spooky synthwave playlist for Halloween

    Halloween Music
    Hey guys, I put together a playlist on Spotify a few weeks ago with over 9 hours of hand-picked spooky darksynth music. If you're into synthwave, check it out and let me know what you think! I've had it on heavy rotation just about every day for the past couple of weeks. It'd work really well as...

    Halloween Props
    2 FT Instant Jack O Lantern Pumpkin. Alternative to pumpkin leaf bags if bunch of leaves are not falling down to fill them. Simple to setup. Hole on the bottom is big enough for a spot light or any light to light it up at night. I have V shaped stakes to keep it on the ground. If interested...

  13. 502 errors and SLOW

    Site Issues and Feedback
    The last 24 hours or so I've gotten random 502 bad gateway errors. Not every time, but enough to mention here at this point. Also since the move to the cloud servers, I've noticed the forum itself slow to connect, timing out and sometimes getting a "server too busy" response with increasing...

    I finally created a new soundtrack for 2018. 36 theme songs mostly of Horror movies and TV shows and they are on 2 cd's. First one 70 minutes, 2nd disc 80 minutes so that will be good for the 2 hours of TOT we have. I also fixed my Sound System that was skipping on Halloween. That was 2 hours of...
  18. 2017 Display Slideshow

    General Halloween
    The wind and rain kept us at bay and prevented us from setting things outside until early afternoon on Halloween Day. Assembled and prepped but with only 3-4 hours of actual set-up outside it was a mad dash to get the display up and animated. With nothing present when students went to school and...
  19. 5 Years of Home Haunting

    General Halloween
    I put together videos of the past 5 years of our garage haunt. The first years are cringe-worthy - especially the video recording itself! But it gives a good snapshot of how our home haunt has progressed (scares, layout and detailing). The actors are my daughters and their friends (mostly girls)...
  20. Hours spent trying to log on and post or even read anything

    Site Issues and Feedback
    I tried to access and log on here a few minutes after noon and have had the worst time doing so. Other sites were fine. Even tried accessing the site by cellular and same issue as with wifi. Finally after about 2 hours managed to upload 4 photos and after still more difficulty about 20 minutes...
