    Hello all. I have a haunt that is in an old slaughterhouse. The last area in our haunt has the slaughterhouse theme. We have a open butcher shop, then into the cutting and prepare room, then into the freezer into the Awfal room where all the guts are. The problem is the last room where we need that big scare is the Kill Floor and it was also the kill floor in the business. For three years it has been the worst of the haunt. I have been embarrassed that this is the room that repersents a pretty good haunt till the end then it sucks. Patrons come out telling us the front is a lot better than the end. So i am asking for help because i can't come up with anything. I have thought about it so long that i am numb to it and i could use some ideas. Here is a drawing of the layout. If you can help that would be awesome. We are also a permanent location Thanks for looking

    What were you doing after the room with all the guts? There are lots of posibilities with a room that tall.

    Im guessing that the loading dock area is were the bodies or fresh meat is unloaded? What do you do with them before you put them in the freezer?

    More info please....

    The room after the guts is the rooms i need help with all the way up to the hog pen. Before the freezer is the cutting room where we chop it up and package it for sale in the butcher shop. The theory is they are walking in the slaughterhouse from the front door. It starts where they can buy the meat, then in the cutting room, freezer, gut room, kill floor which is the room i am hung up on, then in the pen then to the graveyard. here is a video of the cutting romm just before the freezer.

    Hi 1mando,

    For that room you could do a place where they auction off the animals. You could have some sort of stage where an auctioneer is trying to sell the animals/ humans. I believe Knotts Scary Farm did this in there "Slaughter House" haunt. Here is the TPA walkthrough of it http://www.youtube.com/user/ThemePar...SLAUGHTERHOUSE

    Hope this helps,

    I like the auction idea, but auction off the customers and then corall them into a box truck on the loading dock, then have them go to the grave yard.
    Just an idea...

    KILL ROOM

    Look- Dozens of pig bodies hang from the ceiling, all have their throats slit they are not in neat rows forcing the guests to weave through them. Under each pig is a metal washtub to catch blood

    Light- dim lights down the side of the walls and LED pin spots on a few of the "hero" pigs. Perhaps a red strobe flashing through the swaying pigs. RED (darklight) submersible LED's in a few of the tubs

    Sound- the sounds of dying and whimpering pigs, the sound of flies, the sound of blood gurgling and draining into the pans

    feel- The pigs will brush against the guests as they make their way through them

    Movement- a few of the pigs are still kicking a bit as if they are not dead yet, a few also have pumps to keep blood constantly draining into the pan.

    Scare- An actor in the room can have a machete type weapon and bang on the metal tubs (secured to floor) to make a great noise while playing "peek a boo" with guests through the pig bodies. An alternate scare relies on the strobe light toward the back, and them seeing liquid in a few of the tubs. The alternate scare is the actor dips a bucket into one of the tubs and splashes the guests with it. It is just paper confetti but the red light and it flying through the air will imply liquid blood and their minds will fill in the rest.
    A piglet pop up from one of the tubs is also an option.

    I hope this helps,

    A touch of fog with the strobes being red would also add to it. Especially if you can get that Ridley Scott Alien effect of rays of strobe light peering between the pigs. That would also punctuate the peek-a-boo effect. As the monster's shadow passes thru the fog, the patrons would feel his presence from a distance, but wouldn't know where he was, almost like the Moving Shadows room that was featured in a haunt mag some time ago. They would feel his presence, but wouldn't know from where.

    The fog could be bleed over from the foggy cold air of a nearby cooler or freezer. If the door was on evidence (say looking like it was the next room over and that that door was the entrance), with the cold fog light air bleeding out (or bellowing out), the patrons could think that that's where the scare was coming from, until they notice the weird fog-shrouded shadow in the background, passing thru the rays of light.

    You could also add a Leatherface element to it by having the monster (psycho butcher?) wearing a pig's head as a mask, so not only would he be freaky looking, he could also blend in with the other pigs, so you'd get a great statue scare out of it as well. He moves around, just enough to get their attention, then freezes as they pass, the patrons all the while looking for some guy in a hockey mask or a skin mask or whathaveyou, only to have one of the dead pigs appearing to come alive, step out, and brandish a cleaver, proving to in fact be the monster.

    Btw, cool vid!

    First off, I LOVE the idea of the Auctioneer auctioning off the guests, that's brilliant.

    Second, I'm with Allen. Flood the air with hangables. Once in a slaughter room I used rope coated in latex and painted to look like intestines. I used that to fill in between the bodies hanging. Keep them weaving in and out of the hanging stuff and when they DO get that glimpse of the actor, it'll be even more frightening. People fear what they can't see. Let them KNOW someone is in there, banging metal on metal (weaponize the actor) and let their imagination run wild.

    I think following Allen's idea will make that room KILLER... pun intended.

    Good Luck.

    Sisal rope painted with red latex paint. It will stick to the patrons and feeling like they are being tied up in intestines when it just merely brushes against them.

    Wow these are great thank you. This really got us thinking and we are gonna add a drop ceiling with foam spikes as they walk out. Allen you have a ton of things in your head, do you have any ideas on how to make the pigs the furgle way lol. They cost alot for the budget we have. Thanks so much for all the help folks,it has made a big difference on our thinking
