Endless Hallway

Has anyone ever attempted an endless hallway? I'm talking the old school way of making one without a two way mirror like this one here
www.hauntedillinois.com/h4.php If anyone has, how do you set the mirrors so people don't see their reflection? I read somewhere you can angle the mirrors someway or something.. Also if anyone has any pictures, that would be great.

I think the idea behind it is that, with the blacklight being the only light source, the only thing you will be able to see are the fluorescent stripes on the walls. Just hope someone doesn't wear a white shirt washed with fabric softener.
That's probably right..I'd be interested in seeing pictures still if anyone has any.
Hello Csnyde. Screaming Demons is right. The set up shown will not hide the reflections but lack of light helps the effect. One way you can accomplish what you are trying to do would take a lot of space. You would need to build a second hallway at a angle to the hallway for the patrons. If you put the extra hallway at a 45 degree angle to the patron hallway and set a full sized mirror at a 45 the patrons would see the other hallway. Now, you put another full sized mirror at the end of the other hallway parallel to the other mirror. Now the guests see an empty, endless hallway. the catch is that you have to get them out of the main hallway before they get to the mirror. I hope this helps a little. Good luck this season!!
I like the suggestion, I'm not quite sure I have the space for that because I am building it in an old empty trailer but I will certainly get some opinions from others helping me before I rule it out!
