    So I'm venturing into animated props this year, which I've never done. I have basically zero experience with motors or electronics of any kind. I'm going with a creepy carnival theme, and I thought I would start with something simple...a big carnival wheel game that spins slowly in my front...

    So, I am getting a very late start this year. Ours is a small haunt for one night only. Actually it is not that small, but for one night only. We setup on a hiking trail at a local campground, so it is about 1/4 mile long through the woods. We try to stay within one theme, instead of...

  14. Mechanical: My experience with the Kindy's Replacement Motor

    Halloween Props
    The motor is simply too weak to get the job done. I decided to try and automate my pirate ship's wheel this year and since the Kindy's deer motors appear to be a simple plug and play it seemed like a great fit for this project. So when they came back in stock this year I ordered one. I...

  20. Tempt your fate--spin the "Wheel of Misfortune"

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    I have stolen many great ideas from this forum over the years, but never actually posted. I'm definitely a lurker. A couple of years ago, I had my brother build me a couple of spinning wheels to use for my annual Halloween party. There is a wheel of "mis"fortune for the adults, and a mini...
