    • Is their any doubt who's making the best CGI FX? We are making some really cool stuff now. We'll have several things going on in The Darkness during the tour.

        • As I stated originally we had no plans to do anything to Terror Visions then we changed our minds because we want the tour to be worth every penny... people make a lot of positive comments about Terror Visions so we wanted to improve it.

          So we did...

          Here is what we did...

          1) We added one of those bungee actor jumps and built a scene around it.

          2) We moved our TNT room into a smaller room then added a ceiling and repainted it.

          3) We added more props like bowling pins that hang, more props and monsters in the claw game or shooting gallery.

          More or less the whole place looks more complete now. The renovation of Terror Visions is a PURE example how for very little money you can make something look twice as good as before. When you come you'll see what I'm talking about.

          • Great news to report ...

            1) The Darkness will be done by Saturday. We have put every single person we have on it with a goal to finish by Saturday. There might be an animation here or there that won't be done but for the most part it will be done.

            I will be down there again today and will snag a few more photos.

            2) The place is simply put a work of art at this point... its unreal! I have figured out a figure here of how much we've invested into this building/the haunted house itself over the last 6 years since this show has been in St Louis and its staggering. You get to see it coming up here really soon.

            There are only 68 Behind the Scenes Tour Tickets left. PLEASE GET YOUR TICKET NOW because once is sold out we are ordering the food and we are done.

            The food will included TURKEY - BRISKET - BAKED BEANS - CHIPS and DRINKS.

            GET YOU TICKET QUICKLY. I know people think I'm just saying this but this sells out every single year we only have so much space to hold people I'm serious. Once we reach that limit we are DONE!

            When the show happens I could sell 100 maybe 200 more of these tickets but we are TOPPED OUT!

            I'm telling you the best show of the weekend is the BEHIND THE SCENES TOUR ... if you really want to see how the place looks, see how we've done stuff COME TO THIS TOUR!

            Get your tickets now at www.thedarkness.com

            JUST SO YOU KNOW... we've spent several times more money on the show than we are charging. We want you to leave excited. I think this year we will do just that.

            Hope to see you there.

                • Wow is only thing I can say. This will be our first trip thru The Darkness looking very much forward to it. Your pictures are simply amazing. Ben

                  • FINAL UPDATE ... well in terms of photos there is really nothing else I can show you without you coming to the tour. We will be doing some lighting and yes things will look drastically different, but photo wise this about says it all. I'll be uploading more photos over the next few days. We have an our entire crew working again today SATURDAY and we are GOING TO TRY and get 90% of everything done. Getting everything done doesn't seem likely at this point to many things get uncovered at the last minute... we have to build a booth for TW now. Mainly the thing that needs to get done is lighting, sound and hooking up more animations.

                    Check out the photos of Terror Visions... now tell me this isn't bad ass. We really went to town on Terror Visions. Get your tickets at www.thedarkness.com

                      • I'm sorry this year I did not produce a video preview like I have done in so many years before. I was going to do it but we are just too freaking busy right now.

                        We are trying to build a booth for this show coming up next week... we are going to build the whole thing THIS WEEK! Yeah tell me about it. We are also shipping out a haunted house to client this week. SO I'm very sorry we couldn't do that this year. However we will have a really cool video available after the show.

                        I just wanted to say the behind the scenes tour is really down to like 25 tickets. We are trying to push this because if you want to come I need to close it down so I can order chairs and food.

                        So if you want to come please do it now!!!

                        QUICK! www.TheDarkness.com

                          • FOR THOSE GOING TO LEMP... PLEASE READ

                            There is an AWESOME place nearly right next door called The Lemp Mansion and its supposed to be one of the top 10 most haunted places in America. http://www.lempmansion.com/

                            Eat dinner here you get to roam around the place, its really awesome place and the food is EXCELLENT!

                            The Lemp Tour will start at 7pm SHARP! The Lemp is only open between 7 and 9:30pm. You must show up and present your ticket PRIOR to 9:30pm.

                            The Lemp attractions is a new concept its in the DARK there is VERY little light in the whole entire place. Keep that in mind. NO CELL PHONES, CAMERAS, or LIGHT of any kind as it will RUIN the experience.

                            Just keep all this in mind!!! See you there.
