    We had a long hall at the beginning of our show that brought the guests from the street front where the line, etc were to the back of the building where the show really started. This was always an issue for us.

    The cheap and easy solution was a lazer vortex tunnel. A few fog machines and about $10 in parts and we were set. The cool part was actors could be on one side of the laser effect and not be seen by the guests coming down the hall, but the actors could easily see the guests. They could get right up to the guests and then appear. On top of that the effect created a great distraction because it really is cool to see. Actors could hide in the dark and let the guests just walk right by and get them from behind.

    It had to be one of the best bang for the buck effect and solved a difficult area.

    I agree whole heartedly, the one way view effect of the laser is an awesome tool. Zombie manor in Arlington made their laser tunnel way more effective by bouncing their laser off of a large mirror, doubling the length of throw by the looks of it. The laser is mounted over the guests heads as they walk in and bounced off a mirror at the end of the hall really nice addiion to the effect.

    That is exactly what we did. We spent alot more time and money on other gags that did not work as well as this simple effect.
