Does anyone have a proven system or method to create an earthquake? Any info could help. And also if anyone knows of a haunt that actually utilizes this scare?

I was thinking about using the Motion Platforms from Frightprops.com. Setting up a few of em and synchronizing them so they move around enough to create the feeling of an earthquake.

That and a TRANSDUCER. That will shake anything. Its on the FRIGHTPROPS website as well.

That's exactly what I was going to do a few years ago when our haunt was going to have a natural disaster room. I also designed some pneumatic mechanisms to collapse and fall a couple buildings that were to be built in the room. Essentially it would look like they were walking outside between a couple large buildings and they would collapse and fall towards them as the ground was shaking beneath them using a very large motion platform and bass transducers.

Why haven't I heard of you guys yet. Santa Monica is about an hour from my place so I'll be meeting you eventually poison. By the way great audio bites.
Evil I've never heard of you until now either. Im in need of someone to set up my animotronics and air system, lighting systems, etc, and then teaching me the basics of maintanence and assembely. If thats something you might be interested in for a price, ofcourse, I'll be contacting you a few months from now. Thanks for you help guys.
