I'm thinking of using a chromadepth feature this year. I've never seen the effect, so I don't know what to expect from the glasses. I only want to use chromadepth at the beginning of my haunt (probably on the floor, to simulate a chasm the kids have to walk over to get to the candy or to get to the rest of the haunt). If the TOTs are wearing the glasses for the first room, but the second room has no chromacolors, what happens? Can they see normally through them or will everything be distorted? For what it's worth, other rooms might have a strobe, a black light, or a holographic illusions.

I can offer some advice, we added a 3-D chromo-depth room to our haunt in 2012. Spent hours painting panels, purchased 75 chromo-depth glasses. Halloween night arrives, we had 5-6 cm of snow, it was windy and 5degF before wind chill. All the little ToT’s had on toques, and mittens. They could not get the glasses on because of the mitts, many couldn’t keep them on because of toques and costumes. I guess what I am saying is be aware of the impact local climate can have when planning this kind of room.

So with that said, our victims (older ones and adults) kept them on throughout the haunt, it won’t really affect too much. Anything red will still appear closer, and cooler colours will recede, but it will not impact overall experience too much. It is a fun effect, good luck!!!

Not everyone can actually see 3D. Something like 12% of the population does not have perfect binocular vision and 3D does not work for them. I am one of those people. The stuff just gives me a raging headache.
