Does anyone have plans for building a Vortex tunnel. I have a friend whos a welder, so making the rings will not be an issue for me!
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Ill look forward to your link!
This is a good place to start. Just to keep things simple, I included all the links leading up to the actual construction pages. Lots of disclaimers, apparently, before hand.
One important point. If this is a pro-haunt, make sure it's ADA friendly. No steps or bridges that are too tight for wheelchairs.
Incidentally, he used i-beams to create the bridge, but mentions that you can use 2x10's or 2x12's bolted together to get the same effect, but I didn't see the diagram he used to have.
Still, good place to start.
Someone told me I could make my rings out of PVC and use the black nylon tarp for covering the tunnel with...THis sounds like a recipie for disaster to me.....Would PVC rings really work? Comments , please!!!
Im asking for someone I know whos trying to cut costs.....I keep telling you have to use metal rings....Damn newbies,,,,,,
we have done it both "pvc" ways and with a tarp or plastic..... the best covering we have used was the "weed mat" type meterial, it will let any water that gets on it pass & not weight down & distort the pvc. The only problem to me is this will let in a lot of light.
The Thing is it that the pvc WILL BREAK... sooner or later, our haunt is only open on the weekends, so it usually makes it close to the last night.
Fact of the matter is, I've done this 5 years or so having to re-do it every year...this year we will NOT have a tunnel, because I will not rebuild it out of pvc again...the next time it will be built out of aluminum & hopefully, that will be the last time.
Just my experience.
