I'll add to this. I ordered some Fire Cracklers from them as well as several other pieces. Got it all in in plenty of time to finish up some rooms. Great service and I'll always buy from this company!

09-03-2011, 10:32 PM
WOW... Thank you so much for the "props" :)

We are working late nights and weekends and the positive feedback makes it all worth it!!!

Happy Haunting to all,

Same Here, I ordered a ton of stuff for a good amount of our Haunt and what can I say but Doug and Company shipped it out in about a week and a half.
Thanks Doug and Fright Props for the great customer service.

P.S. ordering some more stuff this week :)

09-05-2011, 05:57 AM
I must chime in as well. I sent several of my staffers to MHC and they all spoke highly of FP, urging me to buy some stuff. I bought alot...and couldn't be happier with the service, prices and the quality.

Fright Props is incredible!! I just placed an order with the owner of our new haunt about a week ago and it should be in soon!! Can't wait to get it!

09-05-2011, 01:13 PM
Frightprops needs to give seminars to vendors on HOW to do it !

In the last few weeks Ive ordered a boat load of stuff......I call them to pull an item from my list and overnight it.

Presto.....Its there the next day!

They have it together..................

I wanted to use a fright props motor to make a corpse hanging from a rope move up and down. I figured I could mount the motor to our rafters, connect an arm to the motor, and connect a wire to the arm that is threaded throug an eye hook (similar to a flying crank ghost). The hanging prop weighs about 10 or 15 pounds. Any ideas on this? Are these motors heavy duty enough to hold something that weighs this much? Any other ideas on how to make this work?

The 12 volt motors fright props are using have a long history of being used on FCG mechanisms. So, go for it. I am sure it would work.

09-05-2011, 09:41 PM
Fright Props Motors are super heavy duty.
A lot of torque so be careful!

Update: Frightprops is great! We got our order in a few days ago, the flash crackers were AWESOME! We're having our pitch black area actors use them to get a great SHOCK out of the patrons.

Our pow stick had some weird buzzing noise and didn't do anything, it was kind of stuck "warming up" almost....is that am easy fix we can do? If not, my boss is just going to call Frightprops, no stress.

Two thumbs up to Frightprops!

nice to see some positive experiences for a change about a haunt vendor !!!! great work, guys !!!!! you should be commended !!!!

Followed a lot of these lightning fast shipping posts. So I ordered a few things on Sept 13th. Wasn't to worried when it didn't arrive a week later. But today I called (9 days later). All my stuff was in stock. They are shipping hundreds of orders a day and told expect tuesday...2 weeks after order. Not too shabby for time of year when everybody and their cousin is ordering.

We buy all of our motors from Grainger. Doesn't anyone go there like on a daily basis? LOL

We go there almost daily they sell just about everything. If it doesn't work you can go right in and swap it back out.

Grainger is probably the #1 place we buy most of the stuff we use in Darkness. Larry

Grainger does supply almost everything, but it doesn't really support the haunt industry like using vendors focused on developing items for haunters.

09-22-2011, 01:42 PM
YES Grainger is great... If you have deep pockets and money isn't a concern.:wink:

FrightProps is pretty much the ONLY company that I wholly recommend. Fast, Friendly, and awesome SERVICE AFTER THE SALE!!!! (Some companies don't event give you PRODUCT after the SALE!) Buy from FRIGHTPROPS and sleep sound tonight!

09-23-2011, 08:12 PM
Fright Props has be become another of the companies that earned our trust and have ensured that we will be long term customers with them. We placed a small order with Doug at the show and received everything earlier than promised. We placed another smaller order a couple of weeks ago and had products later the same week. Now for the service after the sale, we had the pow stick die before our season starts, I emailed Fright Props ( expecting a sorry your out of luck response but I was pleasantly surprised) I quickly received a response from Doug asking me to try a couple things to get it working and if it didn't work, he would send out a replacement. I tried a few extra tricks to get it working without luck and have emailed Fright Props telling them it's a dead. I have 100% faith that they will stand behind their product as per our emails. Now that's service after the sale

Thank You Doug and The crew at Fright Props

First off ; I have had some good stuff from fright props. Loved the motion floor kit I got from them a year or two ago. They carry a huge variety of stuff and you could damn near outfit a haunt with nothing but stuff from them their offering line is so complete! Get the picture? I like their stuff..it's great..but I always feel let down after an order comes. Intend for this post to be constructive criticism that maybe changes the one flaw I feel they have..not a mad rant.

Bought talking skulls "show specail" a couple years ago; ordered from St. Louis show. Got it and it was not complete...like show floor models talking to each other. Called and they (Doug i believe????) explained to me that they just could not possibly sell complete plug and play kit for wehat show special was. Ok...I did not get right info from salesman or I had a lapse of remeberance between asking salesman and ordering next morning. Hey; there is a lot of stuff to see at show and I very likely misunderstood or forgot details after hitting bar that night before next days order. Salesman or I messed up....it happens. Shipped order not what I expected...get over it and move on.

Fast forward to 2011. I finally get around to making skulls complete plug and play this year. At same time I order "Large mister complete without audio" after eeing everyone rave how fast Fright Props ships and 'they rock". Ok; look back farther and you will se I posted about that order. I "politely" chimed in that sometimes orders take 2 weeks...didn't bash them...but just let others know if you order during mad rush last minute...it may take two weeks. When I calle dto see why my order was not here yet the guy at Fright Props was puzzled why I did not have it already..everything was in stock. "It will be there tuesday". Good enough. Hey; they are shipping hundreds of orders last minute cut them some slack if an order gets lost temporarily. I posted a positive commenton here...but still reality check at same time on shipping.

Now my beef. I got my water mister item number 0833-0491-WOA Large Mister Complete without Audio today. It left the same taste in my mouth as the talking skulls. It is not complete. I have to dick around and find a damn power supply for it. "Sizing your power supply- Your picoBoo's power supply must alweays be 9 or 12 volts DC. The wattage you'll need depends on whaether your'e trying to power the selonoids from the same supply....yada yada yada......." I wanted a damn watewr mister"COMPLETE" JUST THE LIKE THE DAMN TALKING SKULLS"COMPLETE" I ORDERED BEFORE!!!! DON"T SAY COMPLETE WHEN IT IS NOT COMPLETE!

Ok; there was no power supply/cord with this "complete mister" (in Fright props terminology). Go to their catalog and look at top of first page. "Motion sensor included with all props. For more trigger options see page 12". There is no trigger included with this either...yet one is needed to function. Below this item in catalog are electric spark fence and shock mats....they do not need a trigger...so naturally you do not get one. But you need a trigger to work the water mister....and a power supply.

I think when you are ordering components as opposed to "props" it is better to be able to get your triggers and power supplies seperate. They have them on their site also and you can order at the same time. I like the versatility sometimes I want a pressure mat, sometimes a break beam, and other times a button for the actor. They arent trying to rip you off, they are selling components so you have the versatility of applying the mister in any way you want. Im sure all props come with sensors, but if it is just part of a prop, then you are ordering that part. I think its a language gap as opposed to them trying to mislead.

09-27-2011, 07:45 AM
Look again at the page that this is under. The heading of the page is "air and electric props" . The componets come later in the catalog.

09-27-2011, 07:49 AM
Thanks Allen. You just drove my point home. The heading of page this "COMPLETE" water mister is is listed under AIR PROPS page....not the following pages with headings of "Controllers, Timers, Electronics".

09-27-2011, 08:03 AM
The "Large Water Mister Complete Without Audio" consissted of their PicoBoo Jr...$70, a 1/4" solenoid $25 and tubing..a few bucks (prices taken off their componets pages like Allen talks about) Now the solenoid and pico Jr are screwed into a piece of plywood....they are not componets form...but assembled. Yes I expected the $20 power supply and $30 trigger (that is included with all props as to heading of first page) as well for this $199 prop. So add the $70, $25, $20, $30, and $5 for tubing. That leaves them $49 to assemble it (based on prices of componets in their componets pages).

I ordered a "COMPLETE" water mister; off the air & electric prop pages.

More and more pissed off Wicked Farmer

09-27-2011, 08:27 AM
I called fright Props with the damn near exact problem when I ordered the talking skulls "show special" a couple years ago. I went through piece by piece componet price with them when they arrived after the show...and the special was no special.

Same situation again. So this time I have no problem airing this in public. It is time to get the situation resolved in their catalog..not the sloppy editing. I ordered a $199 "complete" mister. I got $100 of componets screwed into piece of plywood. Missing the other $50 of componets to make it a complete prop. They have my contact info...they can call me to resolve if they wish.

Hi "Wicked Farmer"...

#1: You should have received a power supply with the PicoBoo. All PicoBoo's come with power supplies at no extra charge. Contact us at sales at frightprops.com so we know who to send it to.

#2: The "complete" water misters do not come with the activation (motion sensor, step mat, hand trigger, beam sensor) because everyone wants something different. This is noted on product page on our web site. Our printed catalog is only as good as the day it was printed (February). Things change greatly as the season progresses, so itís always best to check the website for the most accurate product information. Or simply e-mail us for clarification.

#3: I can't say I completely understand the talking skull issue. I assume you purchased the $310 talking skull and expected to get an MP3 player with it (BooTunes). Sorry that it didn't meet your expectations.

#4: In the future, please give us a chance and contact us to correct any issues that you might have. We are always available almost instantly via e-mail and always do all we can to make things right. If at any time you are not happy with a purchase we will gladly take the product back and issue a full refund.


09-27-2011, 09:58 AM
Like I said above. Love their stuff and you can damn near outfit whole attraction with just them. Add in a few Distortions props, and Nightfrights mirrior and you are ready to rock.

Catalog only as good as date written???? This is 2011 catalog we are talking about......that is my whole point.

Talking skulls "show special" was not even in catalog at show date a couple years ago. And I posted I might have messed that up. But this is second time....and this time right there in black and white in your catalog....it aint me who is messed up. I ordered a $200 'complete mister" The parts I got SHIPPED TO ME could have ordered from you piece by piece for about $100. The missing parts to make it complete (power source and trigger) are about another $50 in your catalog. I was charged $200 for the roughly $100 of parts I got...then go through this.

"Motion sensor included all props. For more trigger options see page 12"

So what makes this complete???? And why even bother with the statement at TOP....THE TOP.... of very first page that motion sensor is included with all props....and then say ....welleveryone like s to choose their own. What the hell way is it?

Wicked Farmer

09-27-2011, 10:13 AM
Doug said above all picoboos come with power supply. makes sense to me when you order a "complete" prop like I did.

But this came with instructions of how to choose the right size power supply, depending on what all you ran with it. SO...this means when you order componets Firght Props has no idea what all a haunter is adding to it...how do you decide what power size to ship then??????

But when I order a 'complete" prop....you DO have an idea of what is needed.

I am really starting to think you muddle through everything....but that can NOT be the situation as everyone reaps praise on Fright Props.

Totally agree. In this day and age and industry of flaky vendors, it is great to know I can rely on Fright Props. They have rushed some last minute things for me and it was great not having that worry. Thank you Scott!!
