hey,
i am planning my haunt and i have a few ?.

1- how wide should your hallways be.
2- i have a 10 by 20 tent with a pointed roof and i dont know if i should make a maze out of it or if i should divide it in to 2 rooms or maybe a clown room. the only thing is it is going to be the first thing they go into before they go into the house.


thanks.

When they go into your house is it your basement, garage etc? because depending on the size of the area you are using in your house that might help you decide if you want to do a maze in there or in the tent

garage. and the size of that is like 36 by 40. so i was thinking tent right out front then head into the rest. or i could build walls then have it a dark waiting area.

I would go with a maze (tent) leading into the room section (garage). In my haunt I have small maze sections leading up to each room. So its like maze, room, maze, room etc.

I would go with 4ft wide paths.

Use Clowns! Everyone is scared of a clown... Make your hallways narrow if your traffic is low, especially if you are not going to have actors in them. Claustrophobia can add to the scared level!

You MUST begin your haunt with a really good looking, detailed facade and foyer or other "masthead" themed introduction room. Then leave that room with a small square darkmaze and begin the haunt. This is the industry standard. I use it because I am destined to be a pro haunter and this kind of opening to your haunt is what I have been taught.

thanks a lot everyone. yeah i started my building today and im going to do a old holtel looking lobby/ old mansion looking room to start out then it is going to go into a dark maze that goes in to a cob web room then into the kids room that has evil clowns in it with a bloody bed and a dead looking actor on it. thats what i have so far still have 3 more rooms to decide. + i have a chop shop.
thanks

Nice work man. I'll get pics up of my props for our haunt this year too. I will probably put them in the photo/video thread, so keep an eye out.

lol that's alright. Trial and error. I've got a few full size standing props that I am finishing up along with some severed body parts for our clown scene that will go in a wagon.
