    A few years back we decided to do a ball pit idea - we wanted to have the pit around waist height....unfortunately to fill a 12X12 room that deep with standard ball pit balls would have cost us a fortune. We ended up going with 10" beach balls. Under the beach balls we had 2 air cannons set up....when the guest got to the middle of the room the air cannons went off sending the beach balls everywhere.

    Was a cool effect....the down side was the beachballs were very hard to move through, instead of gliding over each other they kinda stuck....and then as people pushed through they would all pile up at one end.

    I would love to revisit the idea - is there a wholesale place to get the ball pit balls in bulk????

    I'm seeing balloons that end up being only about knee height, which I have been through one before and it was hillarious. Actors could lay on the floor and just sit up. But then Some kind of blower feeder system and balloons are stored above the next two rooms in nets and dumped, throw in air cannons and CO2 shooters and crazy things like scoops on ferris wheels and balloons being blown through clear tubes that may have nothing at all to do with how the balloons really travel, just for looks.


    Another fabulous post from the U.S.Department of Wild Imaginings, now in spectaclar stereo, sponsored by the Adhesives and Sealants Council, suggesting ways to stick things together since the 1800s. Not fabulous in a gay way. Your results may vary. Illinois residents add 8% sales tax.

    She said their competition had an outdoor slide that terminated in a "Corral" of foam balls. A three year old went down one of the three slides that used this same corral and died from injuries after numerous adults came down into the pit . They could not see him under the balls.
    Another problem: The corrals were outdoors, bums would sleep in the foam ball pile leaving behind all kinds of drek including used hypodermic needles!
    So many things to consider.

    Okay, people sitting up from under the balloons with hypodermic needles sticking in their face screaming about hobos and gook all over the balloons! CO2 shooters, air cannons balloons raining from above, mass hysteria. And they killed Bobbie! This is the best scene ever!

    This is all starting to sound like a Squeeze Room, which sounds great in theory, until you realize you are being squeezed right up against everyone's snot from the past several nights, and it gets smeared in your face. I hear flu season is gonna be bad this year.

    Hey There

    It is easier and more effective having large fans under a metal grate on the floor.

    I made something similar for a client and it worked really well.

    If you would like to discuss, feel free to email me liv2haunt@yahoo.ca

    Hollywood writers couldn't come up with a better scene than this if they tried!
    I say, take all these ideas and throw them in a mixing bowl and see how it turns out.
