For my home haunt i am putting in scrobe lights. I have 3 pumpkin scrobe lights, a mini scrobe and a real scobe. I put warning signs all over the place. How do you warn people of the scrobe lights and what scrobe lights do you use? my real scrobe light i got for $10 from oriental trading company, i don't the big heavy duty real real scrobes though.

You can post a warning at your ticket booth and entrance that states that you use effects lighting, including strobe lights, in your haunt.

i have 2 signs at the door going into the haunt and 1 hanging down from the ceiling as you are entering, is that enough?

Maybe a small strobe light shinning on the warning sign would do the trick?
A nurse who used to operate a brain-scan machine in New York told me that some people will hear music when looking at a light flashing around 1,200 times a minute?
Get a fast enough strobe and you wouldn't need a musical sound system for your haunt! Two from one! (Maybe it's angels strumming those harps?)

i tested my new scrobe light and man that makes me dizzy, why do scrobe lights make you dizzy? I am going to cover it up some so everyone won't get so dizzy.

I sleep with a strobe light on-

By the way its strobe not scrobe...If your gonna post warnings atleast warn them from strobes and not scrobes. Thats exciting though... when you got home did you plug it in, turn off the lights and dance in it?

Scrobe-a mispelled word from bcragirl
Strobe-a very durable light bulb in a mirrored housing with adjustable flash rates
You have to be stupid to not know how the most important special effect in the haunt industry works
p.s. Bcragirl needs some serious help

Thats what you call opinion.

I guess that you don't have to warn people about strobe lights, IF you don't happen to care if some will fall down and that some will go into an epileptic seizure?
Setting off a seizure in people who already have such a medical history (or family history) is why we warn people if strobe lights are being used. Just like warning people who have asthma about running fog machines.
The slightest bit of fog juice in the air can throw some certain asthmatic people right down on the floor, helplessly choking to death.
Anybody here want to see that?
Using dry ice for your fog? This can kill people (real dead!) if this is all they can get to breathe. A haunt worker in a church-sponsered graveyard scene became a corpse as he laid under the built-up floor and had nothing else getting to his lungs.
Besides being informed about possible hazards in everything we do, you also have to be thinking all the time in the realm of "What If?"
I don't know it all be any means, but sometimes sharing what a person does know can be very enlightening and helpfull.

i have the warning signs up and i don't have or use a fog machine

ya badlanders only 13

good point Jim.... I hadnt really even put myself into someones shoes who has asthma or occasional ceisures. Its probably better to warn.

But wouldnt they avoid things like haunted houses. Wouldnt anybody that was at high risk just not go, and not put themselves in those kinda situations?

I was in school in History class and this girl starting having a ceisure. She groaned this wieeerd long moan, and this unreal look on her face, and fell over shaking. Blood started to drip from her mouth cuz she was biting her tongue. A few people ran out of the class in fear as things unfolded. The girl was ok but damn that was the freakiest, chilling, and haunting thing I ever saw. So if it happened in a haunted house it would humble all haunting...making your scariest prop or whatever inside look like a huge teddy bear.

You should always warn your guests that fog and strobes are in use.

It is also wise to warn them that the event is high startle, graphic (if it is) and not recomended for children under ( whatever age is appropriate).

If a guest passes out in your haunt you will have at leat warned them.

my event is not gory or violent although it does have horse medical related pictures. i always put warning signs all over the place about the strobe lights.

You don't need them all over the place, one at the entrance that everyone will see will be fine. Just make sure that it is visible. You could also rate your haunt (ie: PG, PG-13, R )to give over-protective parents an idea what they are letting their kids into.

Happy Haunting,

Maybe you have to be a registered user here to have a message account?
"Guest" might not alow it to happen for you?

Jim Warfield

Maybe "Scrobe" lights are made for use in restrooms?
(Check your scrobe? Need some light to do that?)

you do need to warn people about the strobes, so they don't have a siezure. One sign at the entrance should be sufficient. Strobes are made to make you dizzy and disoriented. Do not put paper or anything over them, it'll ruin the whole thing. Strobes can make very cool effects, let me know if you have any other questions.

Strobe lights hurt my eyes. Why would I want to hurt my patron's eyes? So I don't.

Hi everyone, I am an emt in the city where i live . and only people with certain types of epilepsy will have seizures from strobe lights . So common people will NOT have a seizure from strobe lights unless they have epilepsy that they dont know about . so one warning sign at the entrance should suffice. And a general warning to people that are sensitive asthmatics due to the fog.

I didn't know you need to warn people with medical conditions so I admit I was wrong i'm sorry bcragirl. I am also embarrased because I am in the school spelling bee. Maybe I should only post in design and prop topics.

THIS IS NOT DOUBLE POSTING I am his sister I am typign this on because i think i need to tell you guys off a little. Okay i have no clue what's goign on, he was usign starnge words and talkign about things way over my head but what i did get was somthign abotu starobe lights and him ebign ina spelling bee. Well i guess you guys were teasing him for not knwoing somthing. Well that's just plain mean. I have no clue what he said but it probably wasn't that bad. did he miss spell the word strobe or somthing? gawd. well anyways i also want to tell you that this place is odd, all i knwo is that i love haunted houses and my bro is scared of them but still loves them, kinda like roller caosters... but that's beside the point. I thinkk i shoudl become a member here,m it would be funny to post because i don't care if i get banned or whatever. :) -- like the smileys though, my forums only have stupid ones, i've been saygn they shoudl get soe more eveil ones but they won't. they did name one after me though. :geniusfreak: was the code for it, i was a yammer, previuosly, and it looked liek the head of a candian from south park. lol that's one of my fave shows. I hate this laptop, it's so hard to type on...

No offense, but you spell even worse than your brother...

And everyone jumped on him because he was making fun of a girl even younger than him for HER spelling.

Ever heard of Karma kid? It's a b............ch

sister again: firstly, i was typing fast, meaning my accuracy was greatly diminished, and secondly, Do you really think that I was trying to spell some of the words right such as gawd? And thirdly how rude!! jeez, wjat would you guys have done if I was abrieviating like I do when I go to chat rooms. example: hey ppl wat up? wttirl? I didnt think so.

okay well that's sorta a sucky example but whatev.

my brother informs me that that post also has atrocious spelling but I won't correct it! as long as my teachers and I know I can spelll correctly that's all that f'n matters. got it?

he also informs me that he has a bad reputation on this topic, and i say, hey he's wierd, so what? he's on here and s contributing member isn't he?


His turn.:.:.:.::.::.:::.:::.::::.::::.::::::.::::::.: ::::::.:::::::.:::::::.::::::::.::::::::.:::::::.: ::::::.:::::::.:::::::.::::::.:::::.:::::.::::.::: :.:::.:::.::.::.:.:. :

This is no place to "tell eachother off" this is a professional haunted attraction forum, you're lucky it has a home haunt section and they allow kids on here. DO NOT ABUSE IT PLEASE

My sister doesn't know anything about what I do and certainly not how to talk on important forums like the haunt industry's Haunt World. Take in mind that the forums she used to post on were pointless. I was surprised myself when I first read what she said after it was posted. I really had no control.

I have a simple solution, go back and edit all her posts
