RE: Haunted House Coil Use
I want all to know that Jeff has been of great professional consulting
assistance to me in my quest to scare the $%#-at- out of those folks planning a
visit to the Hangmans House in October.
I respect his thoughts as expressed here. And I agree with the "signing
something" being inappropriate. In fact, the house, during a typical night
in October, resembles Time Square at new years! But, I need to be sure of
all else as does anyone contemplating this kind of use of even a moderate to
small coil (no pigs allowed).
That is why I will pursue all authoritative sources I can locate [like the
Boston Museum] and maybe, as I recall, the Science Museum inn Toronto ONT,
and see what their experiences are/have been.
More to come I am sure.
Thanks to all

Slow down folks... before we get ahead of ourselves here...

Totally unnecessary scare mongering. A sign that says "High Voltage"
is all any pacemaker wearer need know.

Totally impractical advice for a professional Haunted House.
Nobody is going to sign anything. Haunted Attraction operators are concerned
with "throughput" and a written waiver is counter to that.

This is a total shame. A rather gutless position taken by many
The fact that it is the position of the LA and Calif Science Fairs speaks
volumes about the laws of man eclipsing the laws of physics.

1. Inverse square of the distance, 2. Well made coils don't radiate much
E or H for that matter. A non-issue as far as I'm concerned.
