Here is an opportunity to own one of the most unusual inflatable attractions ever made. There are only about 10 of these in the world and 5 here in the states. We had it in the corn field last year. Just the fact that it towered above the corn so far made it draw a huge amount of attention. It is 150' long, 40' wide and 25' tall. It is lighted on the inside with black lights and has 4 self contained internal sound systems. Here is the link to it on Distortions website.

It is currently located in Winchester, Virginia 22602

Our asking price is about 1/3 of the cost new, but I would like to keep those details private between myself and anyone that is truly interested.

PM me for additional info.

Thanks, Steve Black

It really looks cool in that cornfield. I hope you had a good attendance. I have been through one of these before. They are large and they really do draw attention from a long distance.

Thanks,

It was hard to get any good pictures up close since it is so big and we had the corn so tight along the sides. The first pic is looking down the right side. Keep in mind that the corn is 12 to 14 feet tall.

The second pic is during the setup with the first 4 sections inflated. You can get a sense of just how big it is compared to the trucks and semi trailers to the left of the pic.

The third pic is the view customers saw when came into the farm.

I did not get any pictures of the inside, but there are a few on the distortions website.

When I look at the pictures, it is still hard to believe that you can hold up 3500 lbs. of material with air. Although it does take 9 blowers to do it.


Thanks for asking, Steve

Sorry about that Louis. The corn maze needs to come back to that area next year and we would really like to put up a second indoor attraction. Maybe someone nearby will buy it and you will still have a chance to see it in person.

Why would anyone want to put it in a corn maze? Its an attraction all to itself. Just my opinion.

I don't know, I think it would be cool to be making your way through the corn and then bam the only way out is to enter the creature.

Thats what I was thinking!!

I like how you can only see the top half of it from a distance. And having never seen anything like it, it will really draw the publics attention. This is a really good attention getter!!

Steve,

I came up to see it early in the season last year, but it was a windy day and you didn't have it set up. My wife and I ended up just going through your regular haunt.
If I had the scratch and and the space to put it, I'd love to buy it. Unfortunately I have neither at the time. We are adding a 3d attraction this year, and that is going to tax my budget.
You need to stop by DarkWood some time soon. I'm there most days and weekends.

Louis,

We will try to get down there to see you sometime in the spring. Last season was really challenging with all the rain and wind. Are you going to Transworld this year?

No, unfortunately I can't go. I really want to, but I have way too many projects going on now. And my wife is pregnant with our first child due in July, so I'm trying to be fiscally responsible. Also, I'm going to try to get the majority of the work on DarkWood this year done before the baby comes.

We will be at Transworld on Fri. and Sat. if anyone that I have talked with wants to see more pictures and discuss this attraction.

P.M. me and we will work out a time

Thanks, Steve

The attraction has been sold and will be California next year.

Thanks to everyone who showed an interest.

For those who came along after I had a deal in the works, I am sorry we didn't talk sooner.

Also, sold.

Rather than posting on every for sale post, why don't you just make one post that says, "please email me with info on haunt stuff for sale so i can pretend to buy it" or some such thing.

Or at least read the thread before posting.

Does anyone know where in Cali this creature will be? I live in Northern California and if it was close I'd sure like to experience viewing something so spectacular!
