Its that time of the year again and the ideas of sparks n arcs themes for
haunted houses are becoming a prominent part of my daily thoughts...
I want to do more than Zap a pumpkin on a metal post.... I have a couple
of ideas some good a few lame... but Im looking for that really good show
stopper that will make people remember the scene. I am limited to about
8' radius ( well actually 12' but I want to keep the safety margin high)
This years idea is to have a 36" skeleton with demon wings sitting on the
toroid with a wire run to his fingertip pointing outwards towards the end
of a bridge going across the "swamp" ( round muddy bare spot surrounded
with dead bushes/ tree limbs etc where the pool was)
I ask the patrons to "ask" the evil demon permission to cross the
bridge.... they ask I hit the foot pedal activating the coil.... I
tell them he said "NO" I make them ask again.... hit the switch
again... then tell them he said "YES" ... I allow the patrons across
and no Im not going to activate the switch while they are crossing the
this way they get to see the coil in action twice....
what would be better in this case??? a chicken wire mesh to direct the
arc and brighten it to a blinding noisy white arc or should i go for the
free ranging longer thin blue streamer effect??
any of you fellow tesla coilers have any " professional " experience in
visuals for this type of theme ... I would love to hear from yall
and you all with the creative minds let me know what yall think...
Im all ears...
