      We have now started a little preparation of this years haunt. last year we did build all the walls in 3 days with plastic, resulting in walls falling down, people run through them and so on.
      This year we wanted to use pallets to build our wall since 2 pallets on top of each other is equal to 8 feet. A quick brainstorming and calculation of how many pallets we needed ended up on approximate 400 pallets since we are expanding to about 300m (3229.2ft)
      Then the big question came... were the *+-*/ do we get that amount of pallets since 1 Euro pallet in Norway cost close to 15$? After a couple of phone calls we did find one company that had a lot of of disposable pallet we could get for free.

      Here is a picture of the pile of pallets were we could take as much as we like


      Today i did make 3 trips to this location and managed to get over 90 pallets with me

      Hope you enjoy

        Maybe this thread is posted in the wrong directory...

        Is it possible for some moderators to move it?

          We have also created a name for our haunt this is going to be the name each year so the only thing that is going to change is the theme.

          The name is: MortemMania

            We have started the building process for this year.
            Here is a couple pictures of the area that will be a part of this years haunt.
            You can also see our drop panel from last year. This drop panel is made with a frame of 2"x 2" and the "panel" is mounted on a frame of 2" x 2" so when this dropped down and hit the frame it created a really big boooom.

            Here we have started to stack the pallets and playing a little with the design and the layout.
            I see that it did happen some strange things to the aspect ratio of the pictures....

              Have done some "small" things the last days

              Mini LED spot
              (Idea after watched Allen H making them in his youtube channel)

              Some components did find the way in the mail
              LED are 35.000 mcd ultrabright cold white
              Resistors are 330 Ohm 1/2 W
              Have 100 of each

              Time to start putting them together

              Have put some of them together and added cables from some "murdered" computer PSU.
              I have used this size of cables to make sure the spot can handle to be mounted a lot of times without the cable break off

              have to mount all the finished spots to on power supply just to see how much light they can produce

              Closeup look on one of the finished spots
              This is how the LED is inside the tubing.

              Some of the Computer PSU`s that actually did work have been modified to serve us as a 12V power supply, This one is tweaked to produce 12.8V instead of 12.2 to give us a little more voltage drop over the LED since the resistor is a little to "big"

              Hope you guys like what you see

                Here is some pictures of the early former mentioned Computer PSU`s
                I`d asked my friend that is working for a store that repair computers if they had a couple of PSU`s laying around that we cold use the cables from.

                Yes they a had "some" (the floor is filled up)

                And then the "murdering" started, We tested all of them to see if someone worked so we could mod them to be 12V power supply`s
                The PSU`s that did not work we cut all of the cables off and collected them to use with other projects

                I also have to mention that we received a mascot from today. He does not talk so much, but it is nice to have company in the workshop

                    Over 500 Pallets are now stacked and 2000+ screws are used.
                    and our back`s hurt a bit of all the stacking
                    I will take some "birdview" pictures tomorrow.

                    I would really appreciate if someone could move this thread to another Forum where it belongs.

                      Like i promised here are some fotos of this years build.

                      We are starting the extra build we are making this year.


                      Here are some bird view pictures when we are finished with the pallet stacking.

                        The brain of MortemMania 2013 is now finished and ready for some people to trigger it.

                        Yes we are using a BooBox Flex Max as a central units for 99% of our props since there are no props running from this BooBox that can not be interupted. The effect that we have that can not be interupted is a movie in the entrance combined wit a door opening mech, this part have a dedicated BooBox and a video player.

                        setup contains:
                        8 PIR sensors connected via Arduino
                        8 units Relay card to trigger BooBoox Flex Max inputs
                        BooBox Flex Max (8 inputs/16 Outputs)
                        16 units Relay card triggered by Boobox

                        Hope someone like this setup, and understand why we have done it this way

                        And now to the fun part.

                        The picture.

                          Happy Halloween!

                          Today MortemMania was open in a mild variant for the youngest kids.
                          With a little more scary tour for the oldest if they dared later on the evening.
                          We did scare a lot of people today and we are looking forward to tomorrows 13+ opening.

                          Since we are the "only" haunt in Norway we also was on the national television channel

                          Video will hopefully come.
