My daughter and I went to a local haunt this past year (that's what she wanted to do for her birthday, did I raise my kid's right or what?) Anyway, they had a great guillotine that an actress was in and "chopped her head off". It was awsome. We both said "we've got to learn how to do that" at the same time instead of screaming. I would love to know what they thought of hearing that!. So...anyone know how its done. We only had a small yard haunt this year but we have major plans for 2009 and would love to do something like this.
