    I would definitely recommend any of the Unit 70 stuff. We bought the Meg Koi animatronic last year and had no problems with it all month long. Very effective scare also! I also have a couple of the static pieces and the animatronic is the same high quality.

    I have the big mouth animatronic and it works great. Bought it used is about seven/eight years old and the foam body still looks good on it. The only down side is most of the people that walk threw the haunt did not notice her. I think some sound to the prop would make it a hole lot better but I do not know of its a option. Maybe half a scream then a bunch of gargling and choking once she sits all the way up and when the sprayer is going off. Something to get people's eyes on her because if she got more notice I believe people would like the prop as much as I do just is a little to unnoticeable. All in all works great no issues.

    I was thinking of extending the top of it out and making a big feasting table. Put some nasty bowls and plates plus arms,legs and heads on it to make it look like a cannibal dinner table. Set the room up to we're they have to walk up to the table and have the actor set the prop off when there as close to the table as you can get them. Got to use movie quality body parts to really sell it which could get a little pricy but good for me I got everything I need. Either way I recommend there props and even Larry orders all kinds of custom stuff year after year so you know they work good.

    We have bought stuff from this company and they do incredible work. Strongly endorse Unit 70. We also like several other companies and try to support as many different companies as we can. I see on these boards from time to time people have problems with vendors. I would say our only negative experience was with another Columbus based company. We are looking forward to finding new vendors at the haunt show to mix up what we have.
