Jeff -- I didn't want to be the one to suggest having someone on the roof -- but our sons' group did that. It was incredibly effective and scary. I can't remember what he had - but a bazooka squirt gun sounds great. (Could you have water bottles up there for refills - so he wouldn't have to come down to refill it?)

Are you kidding me? He wants to take the hose up there.

I'm a bit concerned because we've got so many age groups to look out for.

NO! WAIT! Start out as a Haunted Bloody barber shop. Then go into things like a Haunted doll house of nightmares, then a bloody restaurant kitchen, then a ghostly hospital. YEAH! WHAT?!
To add to this, how about a gorey looking dentist office! OR how about a bloody funeral home?!

Ummm,at a fair once they had a spook house and they had a chain saw in there. Of course it didn't have the blade on it ,but you could have someone in a scary mask revving the chain saw .

At a spook house we had during a school carnival we had bowl's filled with worm's( spaggetti ) and eyeball's (grape's in jello). Someone took the people's hand and stuck it in the bowl's.

My son, who is 14, wants to be up on the roof with a bazooka squirt gun but that might be a bit over the top. We do have to worry about the little ones. But this is Utah -- where even teenagers trick or treat -- which means I may be out there with a squirt gun too.

Beware of the strobe light it effects people who get seizures.

Tunnel of doom

We did a haunted house for our youthgroup one year. One of the scariest things was extremely easy. We hung a section of the walk with black yarn drenched in water. We tied knots in the end to make it feel like you are walking into spiders. If you keep this section dark it creates the same feel as walking into a spider web unexpectedly.

As I remember more I will post it.

Happy haunting.

Do you have a spirit store there. It is a halloween specialty store. I love that store for ideas. Lowes has some really neat ground breakers when you make a loud noise it talks to you and tells you to leave his grave area. I like it. Here is a picture of my ground breakers.


This guy is made out of a tomato cage with two rebars for legs and they are the stakes in the ground. I bought a latex mask and hands. We took a tomato cage and welded two halfs of a small tomato cage to the second ring in the large cage. Then welded the two rebars coming down for the legs. We dressed him in a thrift store jump suit and put his mask on and hands on. I put a light in the face mask and he is scary.

I wish I lived next to you that would be fun.
The simplest things are the scariest. Have some one dress up in a scary werewolfe costume (it works best with a couple of them) and have them just follow the people making scary noises but never touching anyone. That scares the heck out of the teens. I would also say get a fogger at a discount store and have that putting out the fog at the beginning of the walk.
Check out xmaslilly's decorations in the halloween section at my site. I will tell her you need help and see if she will come over and post some neat ideas for you.
