My son suggested the idea of a Haunt based on HG Wells' stories, and I thought it would be interesting. Then I naturally thought about Jules Verne. I wonder if this has been done? Either is too ambitious for me at the moment, but here are some thoughts I have, for your consideration and comment:

Wells Books:
The Food of the Gods and How It Came to Earth
Giant rats, chickens, worms, wasps, spiders, even people.
The Invisible Man
The obvious man in bandages, mad scientist in his lab.
The Island of Dr. Moreau
Any number of pseudo-human creatures here
The war of the Worlds
The ships, the aftermath of battle, maybe the aliens themselves
The First Men in the Moon
Especially the insectoid aliens in the caverns
Empire of the Ants
Intelligent ants destroy a South American town
The Crystal Egg
THe egg allows people to view mars

Verne books:
Master of the world
Basically Captain Nemo in a flying machine. Mad scientist?
Mysterious Island
Not much in the book, but in the movie there were giant beasts
Dr. Ox's Experiment
Giant mutated plants. Maybe they could become man eaters!
Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea
Underwater scenes, sea monsters
From the Earth to the Moon
Again, nothing in the story, but an excuse for an alien planet kind of scene
A Journey to the Center of the Earth
Caves, subterranean creatures, dinosaurs
