Hello All,

Welcome to My Halloween Page for 2009. We brought back many of our old Halloween favorites, and in addition to these, we added "The Monster Mash" as this years new feature! It took many days to build, many days to program (Rachel & Will), and one real late evening to put it up the night before Halloween. (Thanks for the help Skippy) The new feature this year is the Talking Pumpkin Head and his blonde backup singers singing The Monster Mash while Frankenstein rises up to dance along. The Singing Pumpkin uses electroluminescent wire and an ice cube relay bank; Frankenstein and the backup singes are pneumatic, and a Light-O-Rama 24-channel control system controls the whole Monster Mash show. A/B plc drives the Walkway show (thanks to Robert.) Check out the videos below.

If  any of you Automation types want to contribute to the cause, I'll let you.


The videos at the bottom will show the stuff actually moving: Daytime video of The Monster Mash Show (hard to see the Pumpkin singing), Nighttime video of the Show, Rotating Pumpkin Cake, and the Walkway Show. This show consists of  Ghosts lighting up and popping up, Creature tries to escape from the coffin, Three pumpkins rise up and light up (The Pumpkin Dance), The rocking chairs are lit up and rock. Mr. and Mrs. Skeleton, and Jr. are rocking and greeting guests dressed as Ghosts, the Raven flaps his wings, tilts forwards and backwards, rotates his head, and his eyes flash red, The spider travels his web from top to bottom, The fog machine adds ambiance, Lights and pumpkins add to the festivities, and of course Disney's "Grim Grinning Ghosts" Haunted Mansion Theme Song is playing in the background.
