2005 was kind of a crazy year, so no Halloween decorations and no party. That all changed in 2006. We converted the Haunted Castle facade into a 16 ft. tall derelict gothic church facade. The main towers were made of 3/4 in. plywood and we used a router to create the grout lines and give trick-or-treaters the sense they were touching real stone.
We also created many life-sized Halloween props: hooded skeleton guards, floating ghouls and other skeleton decorations. The Reaper Guardians were created using monster mud and Bucky skeletons. We placed red LEDs in the eyes and chest (to give them that enchanted-by-evil look). And, each guardian held a lantern to light the way.
Lastly, we created a new continuous drink fountain using a polyfoam skull, Styrofoam tombstone, and some plywood.
