I've got a little garage haunt I have done the past couple years. I have always heard when telling a story it is better to "show" than to "tell" the audience. With that in mind I'm trying to come up with some ideas for the queue line outside our entrance.

We don't have huge wait times but usually the line will be a 10-15 minute wait down our driveway to the sidewalk. I usually have a couple props they can trigger with step mats off to the side in the yard and have been doing Atmosfear DVD in the window above the garage to watch. What I'd like to do this year is add some props outside the entrance to "set up" what they are going to be seeing inside. I have a backstory of a Paranormal Asylum and this year they explore the lower level with storage, a boiler room and a morgue.

My first instinct was to make a couple signs describing the backstory but that sounds as boring to me as it would be to those waiting. I'm thinking of having some boxes/crates out front to "waiting to be moved in" and maybe an employee time card with clock near the entrance. It's more of this kind of subtle things to look at giving the audience some clues as to what is inside. I still plan on having props to trigger out front and play another DVD just looking for some ideas to "dress it up". Just looking for some ideas from your creative minds - thanks :)
