I am having a hard time picking one of three themes for the 2009 haunt. I want to either do an egyptain mummy theme, a toxic waste facitily theme or a western ghost town theme. Which idea do you like better?
cool ideas...have you thought of putting the candy on a stone pillar, then when the ToT picks up the candy, it triggers a pop-up of some kind. Maybe have a giant beach ball painted to look like a stone that can drop on their headsI voted mummy.... because I'm hoping to add a room next year. I want to put down sand on the floor, I have an idea for "rocking" stepping stones (like temple of doom stuff), skulls on overhead spikes like the ceiling had come down on past explorers, maybe some air scares, fake snakes etc you get the idea. (or even go Jungle/Mayan like We'en12amEternal suggested.
And the scare... fur out the walls about 6 inches, cover with rigid foam insulation carve hieroglyphics paint gold or stone looking, cut out "silhouettes" of scare actors. Make up (we're now using air brush) and dress to “match” walls. Scare actors are now partially recessed into walls and “come alive” when patrons pass.
