    we have a 20' tunnel with a 4' x 4' landing at the exit where you then turn right and head back down the ramp to ground level. my question is, does a vortex tunnel work better with an image on the end wall or simply a black wall. thanks for any input

    For your best result mirror both sides of your tunnel but use plexiglass for safty.

    What the stuff i use is almost bulletproof. But is 3/4" thick so maybe if you use like 1/8" mabey but it is much better than glass and if there is something better please let me know.

    Black wall at the end with 4 sheets of 1/8" acrylic mirror (from Total Plastics, Inc (they have sales offices all over the country)) on the sides.

    If you use acrylic, make sure you PRE DRILL the holes that you are going to use to hold it to the wall. If you go running a screw in it without drilling, it WILL crack. I use 4 screws and fender washers to hold mine up, I try to get them right at the edges so there isn't a big washer smack in the middle to throw off the effect.

    We use Larry's Cgi effect :the Seance Mirror: Check it out on haunthousesupplies.com.

    We projected the image to 8ft and it was awesome!
