    Hey folks... lots more to report! Things are still going VERY SLOW our entire crew went off to Oregon to install some stuff. We also have to go to Atlanta later this week for more install work. However the good news is ... we will have about 18 people per day working on this for about two weeks straight then we should get a lot done. Out of the rooms we are redoing for this show we haven't started on most of them so that is where we are at... I will tell you when this bathroom is done there won't be another one like it in the WORLD! Its amazing you'll have to see it for yourself ... Get tickets now at www.thedarkness.com Larry

    More updates and for one get your tickets online NOW at www.TheDarkness.com tickets are cheaper if you buy them in January.

    Now onto some updates! We are almost finished with our bathroom and its looking CRAZY! Today I brought in the giant underwear and towels we are going to nasty up. And we are about to install a bunch of crazy looking bodies... the plan is to make a ceiling out of dead bodies. The green house is also DONE minus some additional gore stuff that Gore Galore is going to make. You also see a photo of the sawzilla animation laying on the floor... check out the LONG throw of this saw. The Saw we are redoing we are adding bolts, detail and repainting so you can't see a picture of that yet... So what do you think? Looking awesome huh??? I'm telling you right now this new bathroom is the coolest bad ass bathroom you'll ever see in YOUR LIFE! Its already awesome and its missing half its props, special CGI FX, and the overflowing tub. The detail level we are on right now is legendary... hope to see you here.

    Still working away on the bathroom check out the super cool wheelchair and the giant pile of bodies! Today we are working on the new wheelchair room and hope to have it built by the end of the weekend then next week paint it. We will be working on the sawzilla room next week and hope to have it and the new wheelchair room done. Finally then we'll move down stairs where the work will be much more complicated. I believe if you are renovating do the easy stuff FIRST save the hardest for last... you think more clear when you only have to focus on ONE thing. Larry

    Couple things we found a cool source for Reaper robes what do you think of these bad boys... also check out this new room we are building. Is that center piece big or WHAT????? What people out there think we are crazy for going over the top well hell yeah we are going over the top! This is 110% insane and you haven't seen the half of this room. There is a piece going up in the ceiling in the middle of the room that is so big it won't fit in the building... we are trying to figure out how to do it so its still sitting in the shop. This will be our grandest most detailed mansion set we've ever done! Its started so you'll see some pics as it comes along. You can get tickets today last day in January cheaper than any other time. www.TheDarkness.com

    We are mainly working on our wheelchair room and it won't be done until maybe Tuesday or so then we'll start painting it... check out that huge piece in the middle of the room. That is going in the ceiling... this room is GOING OVER THE TOP! I would say by next Friday the room should be totally done minus the animation that is going in the room. Get your tickets www.thedarkness.com

    We are finishing this scene and working on Sawzilla next. Larry

    Sorry for the lack of updates... things are going really slow. Everyone was up in Oregon and just got back tonight and another crew is up in Atlanta right now will be back in a couple days. We are planning on hitting this thing hard and heavy starting Wed on so lots of updates from that point on... we are going to hike the crew to about 20 people a day here in a bit then things will start to fly!

    I'll be down at Darkness today (TUES) and I'll get some more pictures but come next week its going to go fast and furious. Probably in two weeks we'll make a video until then...

    Well it snowed here hard... the roads are terrible. However we did manage to get nearly a full crew on board and we got a lot done. One more day and this new staircase room will be complete. This will be the most elaborate room in the entire attraction probably. Get your tickets today at www.TheDarkness.com the next thing to do is finish this room then paint it and then finally we'll move onto the last room in The Darkness upstairs 'SawZilla'. Larry

    Got some photos from Unit 70 today from some props in progress. We should start to see delivery from all the cool stuff we ordered within the next three weeks from all the vendors. Today we are working fast and furious to finish the biggest room we are doing then its onto Sawzilla room. After this week we should be getting downstairs and we are having a different crew start on Terror Visions tomorrow. Keep in mind all this stuff is unfinished props.
