I am going to build out a twisting walkthrough in my yard this year with animated props providing jump scares as people pass through. I want the walking area to be partially obscured so that they can't quite see what's coming up next while still retaining a somewhat realistic look/feel of a cemetery. I don't like the black plastic style walls. I was thinking about hanging wire from posts and connecting creepy cloth in some areas and spider web tunnels in other areas. The guests would be guided through the cemetery by plastic chain link fencing from Dollar Tree.

Does anyone have any images where they guide people through yard using cloth or spider webs so I can see what works best?

Below are some pictures of what last year looked like with a very simple oval walkthrough with now walls in the middle, just chain to guide them. I wanted to test what it was like to have 500+ people walk through my yard.

We always use the plastic caution tape wrapped around cut pieces of 1/2'' pvc pipe in the ground. This provides a path for visitors with
openings for the actors to get in and out. Keeps the tots and the props safe with a defined area.

Think about how Spirit Halloween stores break up an open floor plan with their cardboard structure themes over the years...They've had some good ideas you could incorporate with different structures...Walk them in different directions to catch each side of the structure at different times instead of simply walking around in a circle....ZR

I like the idea of mausoleum facades. You could incorporate jump scares in them, and its more realistic for a cemetery. Othorwise, or as a way to make it less expensive you could do hanging vines or moss. Make the cemetery look abandoned and overgrown with brush obscuring the view. Or you could do a combination of the two.

Why not add in an alley of Cat tails and knarled branches lodged into pvc tubes and stuck in the ground. I often use these items to fill in empty spaces. Go for somewhat straighter branches or cornstalks...
