Looking for ideas for this year. What prop received the most scares or the most comments on Halloween ? I'm looking for ideas that will make the adults scream WTF !
No, I built this a few years ago from scratch and a lot of trial and error. It operates with a key fob so I have total control of the functions, it even gets people that have already seen it.J-Man that is a pretty awesome build. I really like that. Did you have a how-to for it ?
OH MY GOODNESS !!! That is pretty damn spooky. UGHHH I need to figure out a way to do a room to scare people. I can't use my garage because I have projections in there.If you are doing a haunted house set up, the room we had that got the most scares was the black room. All the walls were black, the actor wore black and the only light was a black light. We hung masks that glowed perfectly under the black light all over at various heights and then the actor also wore a mask. When people came into the room the actor would creep closer and closer to them making spooky moaning sounds. Or they would jump towards the people and yell out boo. We had parents tossing their children towards the actor as they went into a full out run to get out of there.
I watched the videos and they were pretty funny. That would be a great set up alsoIt's a panel that runs in a track behind a wall that has a gate latch When the latch is tripped the panel falls and a "monster" or clown or whatever pops out through the hole. Panel is usually disguised as a picture. We used a fake ticket window near our clown setup. Check Youtube for videos. Or do a search here for "drop panel". It's crazy how scared people get actually falling on the floor etc.
Maybe you could build a room with pallet walls and a plywood roof. Cover the entire inside with black plastic.OH MY GOODNESS !!! That is pretty damn spooky. UGHHH I need to figure out a way to do a room to scare people. I can't use my garage because I have projections in there.
Whats the size of your room? I def would love to do it. It looks easy and effective lolMaybe you could build a room with pallet walls and a plywood roof. Cover the entire inside with black plastic.
It was funnier than all heck watching the adults getting scared. We had one dad who was built like a line backer literally shove/throw his around 8yr. old daughter at the actor (which was me at the time) as he jumped about 3 feet in the air with his feet already running. As soon as his feet hit the floor he was out of there leaving his poor daughter behind. The other adults who came in behind them were screaming and hugging tight to the wall and scooted the child out with them as quickly as they could.
thanks Debbie :-D , not all of them.. the stirring creep I built, all the fence, columns, panels on the house and porch , I made over the years.WOWWWW yeloowtang your haunt is amazing. Did you build your props?
We did the haunt in a livestock sales pavilion. We were using the stalls for our haunts and there was a walkway about 3-4' wide for the patrons to walk on in front of the stalls. The stall was about 8' X 8'. If you added a hallway they walk through to get to the room, you could do the drop panel for one scare and maybe even a mirror where when people look into it, it lights up behind the glass and there is a scary creature of some kind that stares/yells/roars/screams back at them. You make the mirror using that window film that makes a 2 way mirror and an old window, or a piece of Plexiglas in a frame. Keep the hallway dimly lit, but lit enough they can see themselves in the mirror, the actor on the other side will be in total darkness (they can see the people but the people can't see the actor) then the actor can turn on a brighter light on his side and lets the people see him/her.Whats the size of your room? I def would love to do it. It looks easy and effective lol
