  8. Static: Not quite a noodle root but we tried

    Halloween Props
    My daughter and I have been working on this for weeks and just finished painting it yesterday. We tried the the noodle root approach but couldn't get the used shrink wrap to stick very good so we covered it with spray foam. I'm going to put my laser vortex in the middle of it.
  9. Fog: How to pump Fog into Vortex Tunnel

    Halloween Props
    Okay, I have a hallway in my maze that I want to use as a vortex tunnel. How do I pump fog into the hallway? I am having a mental road block. I have this fear of someone burning their ankle as they walk by the output.
  10. Lighting: Laser for vortex tunnel?

    Halloween Props
    What do people use for their lasers? I made a tunnel last year and used some crappy battery powered pointers, but we had to constantly switch them out because they would dim. Is there something out there that will run off an outlet, and will run for several hours without crapping out?
  11. Assisted Vortex Chiller

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    So... I know there's already instructions on how to make a Vortex Fog Chiller. However, I read in the other Vortex Chiller post that somebody suggested to add a small fan to the ducting, so I decided to build one to see how it works. This is my version, and it seems to work quite well. I call it...

  13. Fog: Quick Vortex Fog Chiller Question

    Halloween Props
    For those of you who have bought or made a Vortex fog chiller - what is the point of having the intake and outlet pipes on adjacent walls of the chiller? Wouldn't it work just as well if they were on opposite walls? For example: the intake is on the South wall of the chiller. The standard...

  15. Mechanical: Laser Vortex Where do you put yours?

    Halloween Props
    I bought the little party laser over a year ago and finally got around to putting it all together today. It looks much better in person (no black lines) than in the video. It's so wicked in my garage but it's behind my house so i was wondering where and how others use their vortex?
  16. Electronic/Software: Projector Vortex Tunnel Software

    Halloween Props
    I'm planning on having a vortex tunnel in this years haunted walk, and I've seen people who have had some luck using projectors. I happen to have a 2800 lumens projector kicking around, and thought I'd give it a shot before trying to figure out how to get one going with a laser. I whipped up...
  17. Fog: Vortex Fog Curtain

    Halloween Props
    Hi Guys and Gals, Has any body used one of these? The price is right. The company claims it is their patented system. I just want to make sure its something more that 3" pvc drilled with holes before I committ to the buy. Of course it needs a chiller. Anybody have any experience with these?
