I saw mention of a hanging with the first Knotts Scary Farm video, so I checked into it out of curiosity, and the videos and info I found were interesting. It appears they still have this as an event but not in the opener. Is that correct?

I'm not a slider so I can't answer your question above about what to wear on your feet. I hope somebody else will answer that for you.

I tried searching for instructional videos on google and youtube but couldn't find any. I also did a search on "haunt sliding" on youtube and found lots of videos, just none that appeared to be instructional videos. The best I can tell you is to start slow and easy, and work your way up. Since you're planning to be a clown, I thought I would show you this clown sliding video, but like I said, there are lots on youtube if you do a search on "haunt sliding".

You may want to check with Ben at Netherworld Haunted House. He has some great sliders in his acting troupe.

Ben at Netherworld is member Speculo here.

And is there a haunt near you where you could go watch sliders in action and get them to help show you how to slide, maybe in exchange for helping them out somehow?
