View Full Version : room question for 2009

10-30-2008, 07:00 AM

Well Sanitarium has started the prelimnary drawing for there haunt next year.

I was wondering, we are changing our theme from a sanitarium to an old abandoned haunted mansion, this year we want to have some really kick ass sets and lighting.

the rooms i have are a bookshelf maze,

a room with an old rocking chair with an actor in it it will have an end table and an old lamp with 2 lanterns hung on the wall, lit with dark blue lighting and spider webs all over the set.

a hallway of lanters, which will be a long hallway lit be only a few lanters with details on the walls.

and??? we need one more room idea, our haunt isnt that big. So we have lots of dark fog filled hallways with some excellent actors.

any ideas that fit a haunted mansion theme? i want something that no or few haunts have done before, i want something that will set me apart from all the other haunted mansions. The scares will be like this years, in your face loud startle type scares.

any help appreciated,

We do an old mansion layout. Basically it's all the rooms from the game 'Clue', plus a couple more. You can see the floor plans here:
In the plans it calls for a family crypt as the final room/scene, but in reality it changed to a wine cellar. Here are a few pics in fairly random order:

How about a "Pit and the Pendulum" room? :D
