Need help with an idea - Duck Pond
I'm just an actor at my local haunt, but every year I bring my own thoughts, ideas, and costume to the haunt. Every year I have to try and outdo myself. The first year was pretty basic, with just "great" acting. The second year I brought my own stilt costume. This year I want to build a duck pond game.
This year our theme is 'carnival of carnage'. The company I work for has a lot of carnival games and smaller rides, so it should work out. As I said, I would like to bring a duck pond game.
The current idea is to make the tank very deep so that I can sit in the pond and grab peoples hands/jump out of the pond. This of course will require a scuba tank for breathing. I'm ok with that.
My question to you guys is, is there a way to hide underneath a shallow pond and just have my hand/arm come out of the pond without being inside the pond? Or is this impossible due to the pond draining?
And does anyone know of any tanks/ tubs that would be well suited to do this.
Thank you !
any other thoughts and considerations are welcome
The simplest, Cheapest Way..
Those galvenized , oval shaped animal water tanks? They might run 30 inches deep?
Get two. Cut one end off of one of them. Place, fit it in one end of the complete tank leaving a space at that end behind the actual tank wall that contains the water. This faux-tank wall should be shortened so the water just hides this short "Fact".
Have a wall or cutain at this end of the tank to hide behind, stick your arm down behind the faux tank wall then back up into the part of the full tank . You can hide behind the curtain picking and choosing when and who you decide to do this to.
No cutting water containing walls or plastics, you are just sticking your arm into the water behind a shield then back up again.
Only ONE actual water tank was harmed perminently in the creation of this effect.
