    We built a shop in our Midway just for two of these coffin rides. It paid for itself in the first year. Granted the through put is low, however the press coverage as seen in the You Tube video and word of mouth is the real payback with these rides. We charge $5.00 per ride, most of the time two people at a time. One of ours has smells and one does not.

    That's a great point!
    The advertising (be it news/word-of-mouth/paper) would probably pay for itself.

    We do not have the one with the scents. I don't think it was available at the time we purchased ours. We do have the one that blows air for the bugs crawling all over you. We had several hundred people in line for the haunt and still only sold about 20 rides for the season and it was right beside the ticket booth.

    In my opinion, it is much more effective to take somewhere off site to promote (like carnivals) and the teens really like it. It does however show it's wear and tear fast with kids getting in and out of it.

    Well thought product, just need the people to get over the "fear of death" to get in it.

    They will let us scare the piss out of them but don't want to truely know what it's like to get into a coffin "before their time".

    Haunt Enterprise folks are very nice and went out of their way on a claim for damage for us but I am not sold on the product.

    Would be willing to sell ours if you really want one.

    Spookhaven,

    How much are you asking for your coffin ride and what is the condition of it? I might add a 3rd one to our Last Ride Building.

    Thanks!

    Well if anyone wants to upgrade to the scented one......I am sure either Haunted Enterprises or Sinister Scents can help with either.

    I think there is up to 4 scents....I am selling them and don't know...sorry!!!
    flowers/roses for funeral parlor part
    Exhaust scent...for the ride to the grave
    dirt for the buried part

    The 4th I can't remember...thought it was a blast of just bad at the end...brain fart sorry
    Gee could it get any better than this?

    Ken... and brainfarts!

    My 2 sense and cents! ha

    Our employers bought one and I rebuilt one of my own after getting it. We have had ours for 2 seasons and it has paid itself off. Now it's just an extra money maker and promotional tool.

    The one I built actually fits in my hearse and is made from the FrightProps - Air Bladders. And I utilized a more complex controller and have up to 5 different shows. Different sounds and a different show depending on what you want....

    And I spent about $2,000 building my own. I also do custom sounds in ours each year to fit our theme. I have an old Wild West Theme and last year a Chainsaw - Tossed over a cliff sound track.

    My personal one has a Star Wars Theme (Tie Fighter in the dark), a Rampant Hearse theme car, Horse drawn Wild West and then one that focuses on Comics, Sci-Fi, Horror, almost like being a part of a movie trailer. lol We use it to promote our convention.

    And Ken - I need to discuss Sinister Scents addition to the Coffin! Excellent idea!

    I put a video screen in mine. It looks like a window in the coffin top where you can actually see the undertakers (and the undertakers look down and see you). When they take the coffin, you can see where you are being taken (to the graveyard) then you watch as they lower you down into the grave and throw dirt over the "window", before everything goes dark.

    Works great and added a new dimension to the whole experience.

    lol
    I need to find your phone # again! I need scents - for the coffin ride - sadly since we can't use them in the cave.

    But how cool smells would be in the cave - until the next morning when the 'Normals' wanted to go see the beautiful underground waterfall and they smell - death and decay, and pure awful... lol
