We will be building and installing control systems into EVERY single actor scare box (places actors hide) and what they will do is when the actor jumps out he will be able to step on a pad, or flip a switch or simply activate with his motion triggered sound FX and or lighting.
In other words if the actor is a werewolf you will hear SPECIAL FX sound of a REAL werewolf not some actor with a silly growl.
This way you could have even a terrible actor get a scare, or a great actor get a better scare, and make the actor more believable.
We will be installing about 30 of these systems in the Darkness prior to our 2010 TOur of the Darkness at Transworld's Hauntshow.
If you come to the tour you can do the behind the scenes tour and see how it works, and trigger them! I think all haunts will be installing these over the years... we're evern having made a shotgun for example that will trigger sound of a real shotgun, blah, blah! Should be fun!
