    Anyone built their own motion platform that they can send me the plans they used for it and give me an idea of how it was built? I want to build a fake elevator for our barn maze this year and am on a limited budget so need to do it ourselves.
    Thanks,
    Roy

    Heck I thought I responded to this already. Old age or ??

    My recommendation: http://www.frightprops.com/motion-platforms.html

    I utilize this for our coffin ride and our Hellevator.

    If you have a smaller haunt and a guy who does not mind a pallet jack... I have also created a Motion Platform via pallet jack. Simple Jack and Roll. Be aware this is HIGHLY discouraged for larger haunts. We literally about killed one of our 2 man teams in 2003 as we nearly doubled in size and he quit working out that year as he got more than his fair share of a workout!

    Holler if you have any questions - I have wrote a couple articles on the "Transporter" and can answer questions and also give you some resources for another method we used later.

    If your small 5,000 or less patrons a year - fine but if not let the air move them for you!

    I would also recommend the Fright Props motion platforms.
    We had Matt at Edge Designs build 2 Elevators using the fright props motion platforms.
    They handled over 40,000 customers through them and worked flawlessly.
    But definitely worked without fail.
