Looks great! I wish I had the space to do this. The only thing I could see going wrong is a lot of Trick or Treaters might skip over it as it just slows them down from getting more candy :p

Thanks, yeah its not as long as it looks (its about a 5 minute additional walk ) and last year they all came back through my backyard.I did keep in mine it needs to be long anuff to keep interesting and short anuff to get out. My house is at the end of a 450 house community and I had many come through 5 or 6 times so I guess they get to me after they get all their candy. Dang now I'm out of electrical cords back there.....: )

Thanks ya'll, yeah it nice but sometimes I wish I was a little more limited so my crew would quit pushing me to go bigger. Now I have to figure on spreading my props out a little more with some nice dead space in between. I don't plan on going any bigger (said that before...) All the cords and lighting gets to be a bit much.........last year we use Tiki Torches but they were great for atmosphere but don't give out much light, also they would be a hazzard back there. Ok I'm almost ready to post my first walk through video (yup I'm a dinosaur) after I put my cabin shack out this weekend that we build. Can't wait to post it. The main arch entrance is just like a cave entrance and has that exact same feel........tight......single file only with over hanging cedar limbs grazing you. Theirs even an awesome 3 cedar cove hiding spot at the start where one actor will be. Still working on a big prop idea back there but it has not hit me yet.............any ideas ?????
