Haunted house (NEW! Software added, hardware soon available)

I really love a good haunt! At the amusement park I work in there was an old outdated house that could use an upgrade... With little funds and not many hours I have rebuilt almost the whole thing. The outside was already pimped (abandoned museum style) a few years ago so that was not necessary. Let's start with some pictures of the improved inside. All is in Egyptian style, the sign on the front says "Expo Gizeh". 

An existing effect pimped a little with cheesecloth. The mummy disappears, it's just a relflection in a glass window. The window is invisible in the dark. This is the trick!

There is also a mummy I made with cheesecloth, laquer and spraypaint (and a skeleton). This mummy shakes by use of a jig saw on it's back.

This is what I am even more satisfied of, a female skeleton (or a male in woman's clothes) sits up when a car passes by. This is done with a pneumatic cylinder mounted on the backbone. Special light effects make it more dramatic.

Some of these grave robbers have been trapped. Look at him smile! At least he has found treasure. Too bad he has found no exit.

I also updated the sounds and music. It's horrifyingly good! But it will be even better when I have rewritten my sound program. This program and the hardware description will be here soon! Also some of the sounds will be available. And if my camera can handle the dark I will post a movie of the final result!

The software is done! You can use it for free, as long as you send me the youtube links of your haunt. The hardware for this project will be available soon! Works with every Windows version from XP upto 7 (some tweaking might be neccesary). The file HH.zip contains the software! Enjoy!
