GEEE thanks for all your support. I know its a good design but would of liked some kind of feed back good or bad. Maybe this isn't the place for home haunters or there isn't that many on this forum. we home haunters are the up and coming pro haunter, its like we are in training. a lot of us will never go pro most likely do to Money but a some % will. We are all here because we love the time of the year we can scare the heck out of everyone. I'm 44 but still dream of a pro haunt and that day will come someday, i know that. Well hope somebody replies even one would be nice

Thanks Joe

If you could enlarge the image and rotate it so we can see it better that would be great, I was actually loading your image into photoshop last night so I could do just that and give feedback, but While shop was loading I forgot about it and moved onto other things. It is not the easiest to see to be honest, perhaps that is why many are reluctant to leave feedback.
Is the half man a prop or actor?
Also I would put the changing pictures on the falling wall as opposed to the wall opposite, people tend to back up to look at them and if they do the falling wall will hit them in the back of the head.
Personally I do not like Haunts that bounce so much between themes. I find the immediate transition from big top to coffin room pretty harsh.
One reason why is actors, With sets in a similar vein an actor can work multiple rooms, but the corpse from the coffin room would be out of place in the big top and so forth.
Its a decent layout with a good use of the area you have to work with it looks like.
If you embed the image in the post like a few others do (I dont know how myself) I think you would get more responses.
It does look like it will be a blast to work in!
good luck,

Thanks Alan, The big top will have 1/2 clown illusion box with actor. Also 1/2 man in lab room will be actor also.Your right about the harsh change between scenes. I was going to put all actors in evil clown costumes. dead clown in coffin, clown mad scientist, 1/2 clown body in lab. toxic killer clowns and so on. I will see if i can embed the image,not to sure on how to do that.

after thinking about it we are going to do away with the coffin and lab room and come up with some side show things to put there instead. one idea was fortune teller arcade box, clown using organ grinder, and big wooden looking blocks with evil dolls on them and there heads follow the tots when they go through. Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Allen for responding your input made the haunt better.

sewer pipe? Do you make people crawl through a sewer pipe? Where did you get a sewer pipe? Was it new or used and dirty?

we are going to build a fake sewer pipe around 6 to 7 feet in diameter to simulate that you are walking through one. will have a small pipe that someone will scare from.
