Hello All,

Welcome to Our Halloween Page for 2012. We decided to get a little weird this year and build a dancing skeleton. The Singing Pumpkin Man sings the "Party Rock Anthem" with help from two Pumpkin Backup Singers.  The skeleton "shuffles" side to side, rotates, kicks up his legs, and swings his arms. We decided to add a pushbutton start so that the Trick-or Treat folks could start the show themselves. The talking Pumpkin uses rope lights, the dancing skeleton uses pneumatics, and both are run by a  Light-O-Rama 24-channel control system. An A/B plc drives the Walkway show (which also uses pneumatics). Optical sensors are used to trigger the Walkway show. Check out the pictures and videos below.

There are both daytime and nighttime videos of the Dancing Skeleton. The soundtrack breaks up due to residual winds from Hurricane Sandy.  There is also a video of the Walkway show. It consists of  Ghosts lighting up and popping up from behind Tomb Stones, Creature trying to escape from the coffin, Three pumpkins rising up and lighting up, the Rocking Chairs with Mr. and Mrs. Skeleton, and Jr. are lit up and rocking, the Raven flaps his wings, tilts forwards and backwards, and rotates his head, the Spider travels his web from top to bottom, the low lying fog generators and black lights adds ambiance, Halloween lights and carved pumpkins add to the festivities, and of course Disney's "Grim Grinning Ghosts" Haunted Mansion Theme Song is playing in the background.
