The video Casket ride made it's debut at Dundas Square in Toronto Friday. This simulator has HD picture, high quality MP3 sound and pneumatic movement.

Maybe the monitor is so you can watch your life flash before your eyes

Is there a video? I dont get it? How would that be life like and scary?

Looks like the screen would be 5 inches from your face?

Please advise

When we were at the transworld show a couple years ago several people were talking about how they installed LCD screens into their casket rides for added effect....They say they made the video to accompany the existing soundtrack.

You would see the two undertakers leaning over the coffin looking in and talking about you....then you would see being lowered down into the grave, then as they started throwing dirt onto the lid the monitor would turn off.

So no this idea is not new - It has been done before.....but maybe this company does it differently???

The monitor is about a foot form your face,which is quite comfortable. The visual starts with the priest giving the sermon, then the mourners saying goodby, the casket is then lifted and transported into the hearse, then you are taken out showing the night sky and lowered into the ground, the casket shaking and falling into the hole. then you are covered with dirt. just when you think its over zombies attack the casket and clear away the dirt from the monitor and proceed to smash the glass. All this is shown on the monitor. and the casket is moved around with pneumatics.

$8,000 yikes! I am not being rude about your product because the casket looks stunning. But why wouldn't a haunter who was interested in this just purchase a Last Ride casket system with all the works and smells for 3500 ish and install a monitor in it. High Rez haunt videos now a days go for $139 a pop like at atmos fear. Hell for 500-1000 bucks i know a few special effects movie guys that would shoot any video that would mimic the pneumatics of a Last Ride simulator and the quality would be stunning. I am just wondering where the justification of the 8k comes from? I might be missing something, not sure.

While it is interesting...how is it realistic??? I have never heard of a casket with a window???

If you are buried in a casket you CAN'T see out of the casket...that's the point of being trapped
in it!! If there is a "window" and you were trapped, you would just kick out the window and escape
before you are buried!!!

I know as haunters we have to bend or alter reality a bit, but this looks like a case of adding an effect
solely for the point of adding the effect. IF you wanted this effect of being able to look out and watch
then I would say put it in a different environment. Don't use a casket but instead some other
form of entrapment that DOES have a window or opening, maybe it is just an opening with a grate over it.
So you mount a real grate over the monitor so you are "peeking" through it out of the box, crate, or what ever.

Maybe theme it like some sort of entrapment similar to the SAW stuff. Something like that would have a window
because the Sicko locking you in it WANTS you to see out and wants to see you in it!!!!

If you have casket, just leave them in the dark, use the $4,500 difference for some other effect!

I see a lot of people posting, Which Is nice. What I do not understand why any one would post negative comments, When they have not even seen or had a ride, some Caskets do come with a window , and yes you can buy the 4500 dollar simulator , Randy makes a very good product, we also make them. But as far as converting one to this, I wish you luck. The CGI video alone would would make up the extra cost.
