  1. General Halloween
    Hello all, Im putting on my first spooky trail and need some name ideas other than "trail of terror" or "spooky trail". We live on a farm but the trail is through the woods and will have about 10 action scenes throughout, no real theme. Lots of blood, zombies, bones, sacrifices etc. We'll be...
  2. General Halloween
    Hey everyone, we're in the planning stages of our haunt this year. We're thinking about doing a Jack the Ripper theme. There isn't a whole lot out there that I can find of other haunts doing this theme. I have spoken to a few folks though, and if anyone HAS done a Jack the Ripper theme, I'd love...
  3. General Halloween
    Hey everyone I'm just settling on which theme to pick this year, last year's was supposed to be a Haunted pirate ship but a few things came up so I wasn't able to do a haunt. I'm debating whether to go for an Area 51/Aliens kinda theme, green lights and fog OR a 90's themed zombie rave in the...

    So the kids roped me into doing another Halloween party so we can scare them with a haunted trail. We love the month of September and October as our garage gets turned into the prop build space. We have to amp it up this year because they are now teenagers and not so easy to spook. Challenge...
  5. General Halloween
    I know some people hate em, but they're turning out to be a key part of my display, and I need a few more. I bet that Wally World will end up being the cheapest option in my neck of the woods. Typically you'll pay $10 for a 9 or 10 inch lighted pumpkin. I found these last night at Lowe's for...

    Rick here. I am new to the forum, but not to the haunt industry. I own the Woods of Darkness haunt in Michigan. We have been around for ten years now, and started as a haunted hayride, morphed into a haunted barn, and now use army trucks to ferry our customers to the woods where the haunt is...

  11. Halloween Props
    Hi - this is my first post but definitely not my first big Halloween party. We typically transform our house every year for a big party with a theme. This year, our theme is "The Woods" and I'm wondering if any of you have ideas about how to transform the space to feel like the woods. Our...
  12. General Halloween
    Don't ask me why, but as I was working on a Scarecrow/Jack O'Lantern prop this morning, my mind pulled up something from about 20 years ago, at least... It seems that a small Mid-west town was considering cancelling Halloween because some guy was running around in the woods impersonating Jason...
  13. General Halloween
    I'm going to cut my grass and set up my cemetery today wearing a clown mask. The media that this clown mask is getting is funny (outside of the one that was allegedly trying to get kids into the woods).

    Where dead things grow again. Here's a couple pics of where our barn haunt is going to be. It will hopefully be a combo of outdoor and indoor. My neighbor that owns the barn has had numerous Halloween parties for over 100 people and he and his brother have set up some displays for the parties...
  16. Halloween Props
    I made a pathway thru some woods in my backyard and I lined it with mason jars and a led flicker bulb inside them about every 10 feet. While it looks really good, it's just not enough ambient light to light the pathway and keep people safe and let them see where they're going. Has anybody done...

  20. General Halloween
    After much thought, I've decided to let the Phantom of the Opera themed haunt sit on the back-burner for a while (don't worry, Phantom and Houdini are still percolating and will be back in a year or two... Anyway, I've decided to take the Brother's Grimm Fairy Tales we all know and love and...
