    First off I want to thank everyone for their suggestions for the mausoleum. It is turning out great. I do need a bit more help with the rest of the cemetery. You see I have a rather large area and little time. I have planted many "dead" trees and have many headstones and the like. But, I would love to have something else for the customers to go through. I have the mausoleum but I feel like I need something else. I was thinking of an arbor area, like a long arched tunnel? Not real sure. Again this is all outside. The customers walk through with cemetery fence guilding them so they only have one way to go. Maybe a water feature with a little bridge? I would love to build more mausoleums but I don't think I have the time. I have a tractor so I can dig a hole, line it and fill it with water and fog? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks again for all of your help!

    Sue far as something to go through I would suggest maybe a tree tunnel. I dont know if youve seen one. But the are like very cool and creepy. You could make them like silhouettes on plywood. you could stagger them left to right so you dont have to make so many. But 6 to 8 maybe 10 would look awesome as you leave your cemetary. You could have red eyes up in them or an owl or buzzard or maybe a raven. A hangmans noose. You could have them as tall as 8ft. Its just an idea. Hope you like it and can maybe use it. And it would be something cool for the customers to walk by or under.

    No problem! Hope you like it. They had the spooky trees in a queline at Sixflags on the Scooby doo ride. They really looked awesome. Black with lines of bright blue and white to make them show up. Also I cant remember but I think this was a uv black light ride? Its been a long time since Ive been on it. You could use other colors as well.

  5. Default Swamp 
    #5
    In our haunt we have a section where the guest walk outside and i dug a 4ft by 6ft hole in the dirt lined it with black plastic and set some low wattage underwater lights in it and rigged a very slow waterfall that drained back into the "swamp". We built a really old/ rickety looking bridge that we put springs on some of the cross boards so when guest stepped on those pieces the board would go down a little and felt like it was giving way. The water from the water fall also splashed the people a little bit and gave a great effect before entering into the swamp grave yard and back into the building (through a house facade) we decorated the swamp area with a munch of dead looking trees and painted lots of algae on the rocks (chicken wire/paper Mache/ and fiberglass to make it hard and water resistant) we made a lot of creepy fish props and animals to put in the water. My buddy made a really cool alligator prop with nasty, long teeth and blood al over his mouth. I rigged air to it to make it come out of the water and attack guest’s feet and added some cool sound effects and lighting. It was a great effect!!!! Also a little down the bridge I had an actor in some waters and in a ghillie suite (looked like just a bush) and he scared everyone!!!lol

    Do you have room for a area to make a small corn maze? we have that after our grave yard and I have a Half scale Stonehenge. I posted some pic's last year of this. Also maybe some old cabins made from old fence boards.
