    hey i just got done with a home haunt and i was ok. i am 14 and i want to do better next year and i will have about 700 to a $1000. i want to do a evil clown/wild people thing with actors that just go crazy. i am a few props that hang and strobs and fog but i want to go bigger. i dont know what to make the walls out of. i used plastic this year but people could just push it away i want a more think wall that people cant push away. And i dont know what ind of rooms i should have and what kind of props i should have in each of the rooms. the space i have is like 30 feet by 28feet and i am thinking about building a thing in my back yard that will be around 40feet by 70 to 80 feet. i would like to start building props after cristmas so i will have time to build all the props that i will need.
    i would love to read all the help you people will write.
    thanks
    dylan.
    p.s. and if someone would like to draw up a plan cause i am bad at using all my space to the best of it i would really like that.

    Walls - I would use wood, just supported 4x8 sheets of plywood usually will do the trick, plus they are more customizable so you can have paintings on them, different wall pattens, ect.

    You can get some designs for wall panels here

    here is something we did in our clown room that worked well was building a "jack in the box" one actor was hidden inside while another would stand still in the room, they thought he was a dummy and then the box would fly open revealing the other actor...it worked real well.
    We made it from some scrap wood left over and just out neon paint on it....

    Then that brings up one of the quandaries (spelling?) in putting on a haunt, and especially in doing one on a budget.

    Do you have a lot of animatronics (expensive) and few actors, or do you have few animatronics and a lot of actors (also expensive)?

    You can always seek out volunteers, but you need to figure out how much you can spend and what you can realistically do with that money.
