Let's see....fellow department members cut a random maze last weekend. No real pattern, just whatever felt good. Tonight was our first official meeting on laying a plan for the Haunted Maze. Some of what we had last year will remain, some props will need a little repair and update. But as always we're looking for the coolest ideas in the scare field. We mean for you to get your moneys worth in fright. So...give us your best ideals. Keep it doable. What is out there that is going to scare you beyond belief? We've got the narrowing tunnel, the tilting floor, the graveyard(s). The witch with her big pot, holds two small children, the devil's throne with dual flamethrowers. Complete butcher shop, guillotine. Headless woman, chainsaw man. Shotgun with blanks. Big noisy airhorn. Insane inmate who breaks loose from his cell. Leperchan who chases you. Sparky, in his cage. (battery charger against metal fence) Electric chair. Wooden humpback bridge. Long spider world (net overhead) spider webs that will get your face as you walk through (threads hanging) Multiple fog machines, strobe lights, blacklights...and assorted monsters of all sizes. All the common people. Hearse under construction. A few full size monsters, stationary, still in my shop. But....But we've all seen this stuff before. I need new ideals. I need some real SCARE this year. I mean pants'peeing scary. Not that we didn't have our moments last year. We had a few. A shotgun fired just behind you as a woman screams tends to get your attention. Or when the chainsaw chases you into a deadend tunnel...makes some scary noise. Truck airhorns get their attention as well. That all being said, we aren't exactly beginners. We WILL do all we can to get your attention. A good number of people gave up midway through and simply ran through the corn to get away. Of course we chased them... The funniest one was a teenage-boy group. They THOUGHT they were brave. Now they know better. For adults, teenagers...we will rock your faith. But we also take it easier on the younger children...a little bit. But tell us what scares YOU. Spook....who LOVES halloween.
