The REIGN OF TERROR is please to announce it has retained a 31,000SQF Permanent location! Before we thought it was 21,000Sqf But when we measure it out it turned out to be 31,000SQF...... Our Haunted Attraction will only consume about 8,000Sqf of the space for this year. There is also 4,000SQF of already build out rooms that will be used for storage, a makeup and costume room, also a break room/Catering. this is a break through for us. We can now build sets that will compete head to head with the big boys of this industry. This year will be a small build year for us due to the fact we have to move in all of our existing sets and props...... but these following years you will see great improvements. The only new things that will be noticed this year is our Asylum Attraction....... Hope you enjoy these pre build photos, More will be shown when we do our big move in this Saturday SEPT 11Th!! First shown are some of the sets for our Haunted Attraction last year, I forgot to post them last year...... Also The robot I was building will be pushed another year, I have been too busy working to Finnish him.

We got all our stuff haul d up stairs on Saturday and have now started setting our event up This year we are having our cue line upstairs. The cue line will take up about 3,000sqf. We have build additional house facades to create a feeling of being in a small town. We will be injecting a tree mold that was made this week for fake trees out in this area. The area will also be filled with corn stalks, hay, scarecrows, and carved pumpkins to give this event more of a "Traditional Halloween Feel" One sad thing is now that our 3 story facade is now 2... due to the ceiling height.

Here are a few update photos. I Accidentally deleted a whole bunch of photos here are the only survivors. I will be at the haunt tonight to take more. One photo is of a burn victim that will jump out of the boiler in the morgue. I will make a full suit for the actor as well. Its painted with red black light paint so it will look like glowing embers. A quick easy costume done with expired latex.

Been really busy, sorry for the slow updates. Shown below are a few of our rooms coming along. We sprayed texture on the walls of the asylum and seamed the panels together. We will start painting tomorrow, we have reached the point where the rooms will start coming together.

Been a long weekend, here are some updates! We have currently done base coats of paint on our sets, we are getting ready to start aging them. I am not please with them because I am rushed, due to time..... Some set construction steps have been left out....

Great pics fantastic work. I actually liked the asylum pic best before the painting and gargoyles were used. It looked old and authentic and creepy!

Good luck,

That facade is crazy cool! It's definitely more original than the generic "hospital" type asylum. I wasn't following it at first, but after seeing it painted and detailed out, all I can say is "wow!" GREAT WORK!!!

Below are some photos of sets which are still being aged. I have about 4 more days of aging to do on the Asylum, There's about 12 more hours left of aging on the facade alone. I wish i could get some photos of the carved cracks and the brick color but my camera phone does not pick up that much detail and there's not too much light in the building.

I took a trip to REIGN OF TERROR tonight and i have to say "WOOW!" they did such a GREAT job!

As a haunter myself i have to admit i have become a little bit jaded by haunts.
But these guys have done it right!
Los Angeles is really lacking when it comes to Good haunts and i think this haunt is going to grow into one of the premier haunts in L.A.

The cue line alone had such great detail and atmosphere.
Inside had a great mix of animatronics and live actors creating a perfect chemistry of great set ups and scares!
Well done REIGN OF TERROR!
If you are in L.A. or planning to be make the effort to see this haunt!
Its worth every penny!

Thank you very much for the complement! It means alot! We are very glad you were able to come out this year. Bruce and I look forward to seeing you guys at the trade show.


And as for updates here are a few more photos of the haunted house. Sorry for the poor quality, The pictures are from a camera phone..... I will post professional photos once our attraction is done.

enjoy,

Frank Balzer

We have a que line inside our haunt that keeps our guests entertained, you walk through a pumpkin patch and into a barn with butchered body's that are animated. We have a skelerector a pneumatic coffin, and 2 animatronic talking skeletons that give the house rules. As you continue through the line you enter a Victorian village. and then into the Haunted Attraction.

Here are some photos of the Asylum. I had help building the 4x8 blank wall, other then that I build everything else along with aging it. I made foam trees for the outside of the asylum as well along with a custom boiler, morgue, doors, etc.

I have a huge trunk fetish !!! I know where your coming from, I think I have ten now. Lord help me if I ever keep my feet in a haunt long enough to call it home because it will have a room dedicated to trunks, boxes, and luggage cases . I don't know what my obsession is or where it comes from but I have been this way since I was a kid. Ask my mom. An I feel sorry for the woman because she has been helping me manage my haunted career since I dropped out of collage. She is the one that keeps them in storage for me in New Orleans. Pitty this woman.


As for the sewer and library fetish, that is becoming more of a work hobby. I just want to some thing, make some thing, any thing with them. At my last haunt I worked at I don't know why, but I made these storyboards in my head an just ran with it. At least this is better then my last work hobby that consisted of spandex and doors... Not kidding.



As for these pictures, thank you. I want you to know I just keep them as stock photos. One day I'm going to make this library in my head, no second thought about it. An when I do, I'll show you my crazy world.

Amazing haunt!,The detail is unbelievable!

How did you build the trees trunks or are they real?

I made the tree trunks from a mold I made. I had about $2,500 of silicone ready to expire that was going to be used for my animatronic project so I put the silicone on a 60 year old tree, pulled it off and poured foam into the back of the mold.

and sorry I haven't posted more photos, I will definitely put some more up within two weeks. I have been too busy working on a project that will help revolutionize this industry for those who have permanent locations for their haunt. It will allow a TON of money to be made during the off season!! I'm speaking about a shit load of money too! I hope other haunts will be in prime location to do this as well. =)
