If anyone has ideas for new stunts for the HH this year, like anything from Scare Factory, Distortions etc, please drop a link in here. Once we get a few together I will run it by the management to see what they think. The stunts need to be somewhat inexpensive, but effective. Thanks

Here are some I think would be cool, but when you say "inexpensive", I really don't know what your going for since none of these Darkride things are at all "inexpensive"...
By Distortions Price: $3125.00 Product Number:SKU:DU1963
By Distortions Price:$3824.00+$150.00 for shiping Product Number:SKU:DU 1999 Description (From site):The Flying Freak is approx. 4 ft. tall when he's crouched down, but when activated, he spreads his arms and rises to over 10 ft. Includes fog machine, movement controls, digital sound, amp and speaker. Requires air compressor and AC power. Additional $150 crating
How are these? I personaly think the FLYING FREAK would be an awseome addition to the ride. He could be placed near the end of the ride where all of those props and Giant Spider Web are now. He would make a good finish to a HH experince as he rises over the car before it heads toward the waterfall.
And I'm sure the old air compressor could give the freak a hand...
The Acid Spitter would be cool as long as nobody minded getting wet. The only thing is the mold an mildew problem that might go into effect...
I think these would be neat additions. What do you all think? ;D
...Oh, wait, I forgot half of the fourm members are basicly DEAD. What do you think, notimpressed, spookyrider, sean, MikeBiggs & ClownUndertheBed?
...You know, I don't have a clue why you join the fourm when you don't want to contribute to anything!

I think the first one is too much like the Toxic Man and the second one is too much like the Leaping Ghoul. I really think the Leaping Ghoul is more effective because it actually flies toward you, this just stay in its spot. I always thought it would be really neat to put a Charmin' Charles in there. Afterall, there IS organ music playing in the lobby. It would be interesting to put the speaker by the piano and make it look like he's playing it. There probably wouldn't be any room in the lobby, but maybe in the ride somewhere. And most likely you couldn't find any more Charlies out there. Maybe at an auction from a park or maybe even make it yourself.

Wow! That organ looks great. One thing that looks weird is that instead of a wooden chair, it should've been a pinao stool or bench. It just doesn't seem right. I love the organ, though. The bathtub and shutter monster were nice, too. I was looking at those other videos below the Shutter Ghoul after it was finished and the "Family Pack Frig" caught my eye. That looks pretty neat! That would be a GREAT April Fool's prank! Go to a Salvation Army and drop it off there! They'd be in for a surprise!

I don't think the chair is even included since it's the organ prop and the zombie prop. Th chair is probobly just in the image for the guy to sit in. Trimper's would have to buy a stool for the guy to sit in along with the organ and the guy himself.

I would like to see something that resembles something whacky. Like the Bill Tracy wall boards, and stunts are colorful while the mix of modern stunts are true colors and gory. Only if maybe for instance you had the shutter stunt and colored the bricks a color that Tracy would use or put a plank on the side to make it creative. And then it would work and fit with the other stunts. The organ is pretty neat as well.

The granny thing and other things are just to stupid, almost if some 13 year old kid thought it up.
Wait a sec!
They all need to be covered in dayglo paint...
Hmm...Point taken, But...
So your both saying you don't want any new stunts inside The HH tis year? Nobody but The Sally Co. Makes Dayglow stuff anymore, and the stuff they make is th likes of a Disney-based Darkride from fantsyland, or "Garfield's Nightmare" garbage. It's all Cardboard cut-outs or semi-dementional plastic cut-outs with hallow insides...
These are the only kind of stunts The HH will real benifit from, and that will keep most brave, Non-appreciatve teenage vandilizers in their d**n coffin. (Unless their dunk or stoned senior-weekies...then their is still a problem)
Think of the Distortions or scare factory stunts like Gaurd-Dogs, and the Tracy stunts as rich britle old farts. They use their gaurd-dogs to protect the from powerfull attackers by scaring them away, or in the case of THe HH, seated in their coffin...
The HH needs these for a purpouse...
"Effective" and purpouse are the same thing in my little "old fart & dog" relation story above...The HH needs to protect the dwindeling number of historic tracy stunts (or old farts) it has left...
Thats why The Electric Chair and Leaping Ghoul are such great stunts. They startle baiscly anybody, Young or Old, Brave or Cowardly...They have contributed to the higher-then-avarage-number of original stunts in any still-in-existance-Tracy-Ride for The HH, because they keep a marjority of the vandilizers seated in their coffin...

How about this?
"Beautifully detailed gothic piano features Grim Reaper relief sculpture on lid with skull and gold leaf details throughout body, when activated a mob of 13 skeletons come screaming out from under the lid... add the air cannon option to complete this startling effect. Steel internal frame covered with wood with urethane details. Standard unit is designed to accommodate Casio or Yahamaha 88-weighted key electronic keyboard (sold separately) so that an actor can play it or the unit can be outfitted with one of our Digital Sound Effect units for a completely automated effect."

I like the Clown Guy...maybe Charlie could one day move into the haunted house...
As for the Piano; I'm wondering where the location is that Trimper's are looking into adding a new addition. I think the Piano would fit in great where frank used to be; just move the launching ghoul over to the Mummy's spot, and throw the mummy in the clusterf**k of discarded characters on the knit witt/saw mill hill...
And what good would a piano do without some music to play? Maybe have it play a loop of deranged versions of Moonlight Sonata, Toccata Fugue, and the Funeral March...
Everybody thinks that there should be more around the shivering mummy. Also I think they should get rid of the giant skull and put something there. You could also put some in the empty corner of the barrel room. Or something where the wine cellar used to be. I dont like just the cobwebs and skulls they have there.

I've become rather fond of the coffin guy, and would rather him not be removed. I think maybe moving out the giant skull would be okay, but then again, that would most likely mean biding goodbye to the last of the remains of the old bartender...
As for the piano, maybe even have that go in the skull's place then. There seems to be ample room in the Electric Chair room, but then again, there is a lot of action in there already; and they get an extra visitor during the off-months.
Anyhow, I would like to point out that there is also a lot of room on the shelf that the Birthday once occupied. The Hanging man doesn't really require that much room, does he? That whole area could be used for something else, something larger...
Brandon: The forum has so many new visitors, but so few new posts! Come on people! Let's get the conversation started. Summer is almost here!

HHMacabre: Hi everyone! Did I hear word of new additions in the ride? How is the Mineshaft?
May 7, 2013 20:44:50 GMT -5
Brandon: Yes, there are supposed to be two new effects installed this year. I don't have any insight yet but will share the information once I receive it. I don't think anything has been done with the Shaft.

Brandon: There have also been three additional mini shooting galleries installed around the park. Pics and information to come a later date at ochh.net.
