That's a question that can't be answered with the info you've given.

Foggers? How many and how many watt are they? How many lights? Are we talking 150w floods, pinspots or 7w night light bulbs? Air compressor? Do you have one?

Recently my compressor went down at the beginning of my house tour for four customers. I felt lucky that actually so few of my show's mainstays need air to work.
The customers were all first time visitors and they never knew the difference.
I easilly entertained them with manuel devices, hand props, and electric devices...sounds like a naked group get-to-know-the new neighbors encounter in the woods at midnight!
Under the full moon of course.
I would be more "Pegg'n"!!

Well, a couple of years ago a huge snow storm hit buffalo during october! i think it was 5 or 6 ft of snow. It was called the "October storm" But hell we were still open! At that time Jason him self was flying in for autogrpahs at fright world and all the power was down for a week. We used 2 United rental generators. we have 5 houses. 95,000 sq feet. Only things that dint work was the air compressors and alil bit of the light.
