    I have a great, realistic looking rubber rattlesnake, but have run out of ideas on how to use him most effectively. I own a haunted trail, so the atmosphere is there. Any ideas?

    Have you seen the you tube clip where a man is walking in the woods and someone pulls an inflatable alligator pool toy in front of him across the path he is walking on and he freaks out.
    Perhaps an actor pulls it in front of the groups first person and scares them.
    Just a low tech thought.

    The main thing I'd recommend with a rattlesnake, is make sure you have the rattle sound effect. Once you have it, you can actually use it a few different ways.

    1) Definately use the sound of the snake when you have it "strike". You want to make sure the customers associate the rattle sound with the snake.

    2) You could use the rattle sound to foreshadow the snake. It's a very recognizable sound, and just knowing the possibility of a snake coming up can build the tension.

    3) Use the rattle somewhere again down the trail. Once they have seen a snake once, additional rattle sounds will have them worried about seeing it again.


    There are three rules to designing a haunt. Unfortunately, nobody knows what they are.
