    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    Hello, I made this years ago when I was more active on this site. Due to limited garage space and getting older, I need to sell it. The bottomless pit still works great and the children love it. This is for local pick up in Plymouth, MN. only. You need a truck or trailer and a blanket...
  4. Static: Lighting needs for bottomless pit prop?

    Halloween Props
    Hello all, I have a quick question about the lighting needs of the bottomless pit prop. I understand that the space in between the mirrored surfaces needs to be brighter than outside (like how the light in the interrogation room needs to be lit while the room on the other side of the one way...

  11. Static: Cheap 1 way mirror?

    Halloween Props
    I'm working on a bottomless pit, but I'm need a cheap one-way mirror. Rather, I want 2 one-way mirrors - one for the top and one for the bottom, so that I can eventually put a scare under the bottom pane. I've been looking around for one-way mirrors, but holy crap, they're expensive. I...
