    Pacific island cannibals (look at the last king kong movie, great looking islanders and sets in that one) King kong took place of Skull Island.
    A Volcano themed haunt could be fun (great opportunity for sets and costumes)

    Alkatraz is an Island
    Island of the dolls
    Zombie Island
    Island of the Gods
    Island of the giant Rats
    If any of those titles germinate ideas for you then it has merit.

    I know I like the island of the dolls. I went to a haunt that had a striper pole and thought what kind of haunt has this. After i got done snubbing my nose at it my associate pointed out that the demographics of haunted houses includes a large number of of boys 13 to 18 in age. So I may not condone the use of this technique, but it would at least fit the theme. And it would draw those people that are not yet of age. Zombie dolls with their scantily dressed male slaves.

    Of coarse I would never do such a thing. Any body know a good supplier for stripper poles?

    Unit 70 has some GREAT guys that would fit into this, and I think someone's selling some used ones of the guys I'm talking about right now in the trading post....I could be wrong or they could be sold, so don't quote me on that haha.

    Anyway, STONEWORK!! Very few people do really cool stonework (out of foam/or stone, depending on how crazy you want to get), but carved stones, like creepy easter island giant heads, tall tiki statues, and try to incorporate a lot of nature, i.e sand and water, in places where it wouldn't get all over. Create a nice large waterfall if you can, the more you can incorporate water (safely) the more island-y it would feel, same with sand.

    This isn't a theme/haunt, where you can just throw together some 4x8 walls and call it whatever theme you want, in order to get that island feel, you really need to MAKE an island. For the indoor section create a facade for a tiki hut, and then create a few different rooms of what would be in a cannibal/infected/cursed tiki hut.

    Another outdoor idea would be to create some sort of elevated walkway, and make volcanic craters and run pvc pipes from crater to crater and have them blast out fog at your patrons, that'd be really neat to see!

    When you start building this, please post some progress pics, I (along with many others I'm sure) would LOVE to see this theme progress!

    But Bobby what about the girls, you for got the girls, girls. Can you tell what my focus is right now. We have been below zero for the last 3 days so we need some entertainment here in Michigan right now. So let find some hula skirts and cocoanut bras and crank up the heat and do a off season haunt. Whoops wife just walked in maybe this was not a great idea. But seriously I do like the Easter island idea and I also have seen someone with the large statues but can't remember right now. If I think of it I will post it.

    JB had a Lava Floor in Castle Dragon. A Volcano motif could take that concept to a whole new level.

    Also, remember the Clay People from the old Flash Gordon serials with Buster Crabbe? That could make for an interesting camo scare.

    Witch doctors, cannibals, living tiki statues... But don't forget all the lovely nature in the jungle: snakes, spiders, giant centipedes, maybe a killer plant or two?
