i am looking for some advice or instructions on how to build a spinning tunnel.
i looked at the pirates of emerson video and saw that they have a spinning tunnel..but i am looking to build one just like that..has anyone had any experience with this at all? i know the perfect place to put this in my backyard and i know that people would not come close to it in my area..
please give me any information that you may have! Thanks!

Spinning tunnels can be also called "Yak" Tubes since people do throw up in them.
A little boy was killed in one near Chicago a few years ago, he fell under some gears?
There has been a fair amount of good info on building them on-line if you can find it. I always thought of building one but standing it on-end and having people walk under the effect, this way the puke stayed in one place(as they are looking "UP"), it stayed on them! hahahaha!
I have my 45 foot high tower at the back of the house to put it in too!

Scary Terry has built one. I talked to him and it costs about $3000 to make, so be prepared.

Here's the link:

An inexpensive alternative would be a spinning moonflower light. I have used them in the past and have had great success. You get a similar effect as the vortex tunnel for about $50.

There is also a booklet out by a guy named Ollie something. I was going to put my up for sale on ebay for three cents but I would have felt guilty overcharging the buyer. Don't pay $20 for it like I did.

if you go to the Monster list they have about three seperate posts each a dif way to construct one all very time consuming.

but as Tustin haunt or Ben says i have help put up the Scarry Terry tunel and it is a work of art very eddective and all this was during the day at night i could only imagine.
