    Halloween Props
    Here is the video of our Halloween 2018 we had around 700 to 800 kids, the weather was good until Halloween night around 8 pm when it started to rain so found myself putting everything away wet as usual here in the NW
  2. Boo Who's Rain Drenched Haunt

    General Halloween
    Couldn't put much out with steady rain all day and night - so I relied heavily on lighting and lots of movement. Used my Shiatsu's to "float" jack-o-lanterns in the upper windows and move my old scary lady in her antique wheelchair under cover of the porch. Had my fogger near the skellie...
  3. Electronic/Software: Help!!Sams Club Members Mark Reaper

    Halloween Props
    Trying to find out either the power supply details for the Sams Club Grim reaper or a number to call as I thought I seen something on the box but mine was destroyed at the campground with all the rain even though under the awning, as my wife smashed and destroyed the power supply somehow when...
  4. Shallow Grave Cemetery 2018 - Garden of Souls

    General Halloween
    Thy soul shall find itself alone. Mid dark thoughts of the gray tombstone. Not one, of all the crowd, to pry into thine hour of secrecy. The spirits of the dead who stood in life; before thee are again. In death around thee, and their will shall overshadow thee...
  5. It was a "Halloween Miracle" - 2018 Photo Album

    General Halloween
    This year we came as close to getting rained out as ever before. It was beautiful weather for several days leading up to Halloween and was very nice that day until about 11:00 or 12:00. Then the rains came and it got cold. But the Halloween gods smiled upon us and about 1 hour before the...
  6. Halloween Party 2018

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    How did you parties turn out? Ours was Saturday and it poured down rain. Our turn out wasn't what we hoped with 9 of our "Yeses" not showing up and none of our 11 maybes. So we planned for turn out in the mid twenties including us and ended up with 14. But it's not the first year we have had a...

  8. Well it was bound to happen eventually - Halloween weater

    General Halloween
    Might be the first Halloween ruined by weather since I've been doing my yard haunt. The worst part is that it's beautiful weather until Halloween, 55 with a 50% chance of rain and gusty winds on Halloween, then back to beautiful weather the rest of the week. ONE day I ask for nice weather...
  9. How does everyone protect their extension cords from the rain?

    General Halloween
    This is a really sad post! Due to the extreme wet weather in TX, I have not been able to put up my yard and it is the 26TH!!! :mad::mad::mad: It will be dry for the next few days , so am going to get the yard up over the weekend - HOWEVER there is a chance of Thunder storms on Halloween. How...

  11. The first (and probably last) Ghostbusters Halloween train!

    General Halloween
    Been working on this idea for a while. I've taken an old Ecto 1 remote controlled car with lights and siren that a guy modified to add more lights and wanted to mount it to one of my trains for Halloween. The trick was it had to be high enough to get around the other trains since I've got 3...
  12. Static: Covering Anamatronics in rain

    Halloween Props
    I have a few store bought animated props I was looking forward to setting out for my haunt on Halloween. Had a great plan and bought 2 new ones with the said plan in mind. However there is now a 50% chance of rain on Halloween night, and I need to cover at least a couple of them. Will covering...
  13. Good/Bad weather- whether or not

    General Halloween
    It's still 2 weeks out but the forecast for my town is remaining at rain. I sure hope it changes to a decent day and night. I really need the 29th through Nov 1st to cooperate. I can manage with less, but that's ideal. I hope everyone eeks out good weather this year! Good luck!
  14. Hello - waterproofing cardboard tree

    Halloween Props
    Just joined. I made a haunted tree out of cardboard forms. What did you coat the inside with to keep the rain from damaging the cardboard? Thank you
  15. Pneumatic: air cylinders and direct contact with rain water

    Halloween Props
    Anyone have any experience with air cylinders and direct contact with rain water? I've been avoiding it especially with the rodless cylinders (they got pricey). I'm looking for someone to tell me it's OK or confirm my fear of using them in the rain. Mother Nature was cruel and gave me 10 years...
  16. Static: Big Lots Dragon: Assemble, Check it out or just leave it in box???

    Halloween Props
    My big Haunt was beggining of October and ended up getting real sick so Dragon just ended up going back home in the box and not setting him up. With rain and snow predicted for Halloween and basically rain everyday there is no way even going to set him out. So do I even check it out to make...

  18. How many TOTers did you get?

    General Halloween
    Well, the last came around 8:00. We only had about 20 this year. WAY too much candy left over! Haha. The weather was excellent; no wind, no rain, about 7C...Best we've had in a few years. I guess it would be slower on a Monday night? Hope everyone had a good Halloween :)
  19. My first ever display and now it's raining! Now what???

    General Halloween
    Hi, I was so excited.....bought loads of stuff including smoke maker and lighting and couldn't wait to put it all out tonight.....then it started rairing! A big part of the display is tombstones and most are battery operated and light up and some make noise. I have many sound and/or motion...
  20. Making Lemonade: Unorthodox 2016

    General Halloween
    So. Let's sum it all up. The house is torn apart. The yard is a mud pit. It's supposed to rain out our party Sunday. There are those who just accept fate in these situations. For me, it's a question: Do we do the full yard walkthrough, or a front yard display? The present...
