Drop panel help!

1171 Views 6 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  maureenpr
We have 2 drop panels in a winding hallway that is 3' wide - it's a hallway of pictures in frames, and 2 of the pics drop down. They are close enough so that one will scare the front of a group, the second will scare the rear of the group. The panels are built and work great, but we've never run 2 before so I'm wondering how folks time these things. We can drill a peephole for #1, but do we do the same for #2 so they drop at the same time? Or should #2 just wait until #1 drops and then drop theirs? Any tips on how to get them to synchronize?

We have used two drop panels for a couple of years, and we time ours similar to EviLEye's description, the 2nd panel goes as soon as they hear the first one drop. We mix it up though, sometimes we only man one drop panel and we switch the actors between two locations.
