View Full Version : Claustrophobia squeeze walls problems

10-25-2010, 04:16 PM
I purchased from a vendor a set of panal walls that blow up to provide the cloustophobia effect. Not going to mention name of vendor at this time. I have had problems with tears and breakdown of material. Is this a common problem that others are having or is it something that just I am having? We are a small haunt so we have only had 1000 people go through this year and I doubt the walls will be good for another year after looking them over last night.
Just wondering if this is a common thing or not.

We have been using a full size Oak Island unit for 3 or 4 years now. On occasion we get a tear, but nothing a sewing machine can't fix. I should note that it has always been caused by a patron, either intention with a knife or whatever, or a zipper or the like. I think our big unit has 4 or 5 tears in it, but like I said, nothing that couldn't be fixed by a quick sewing. I would guess it's somewhere around 100k + patrons through it.

We also purchased the Jr version this year, I would estimate 25k+ through it this year.
