Haunted Attraction: Bottomless Pit
 
Bottomless Pit
This walk-over bottomless pit effect that I designed and built for the Monster Manor charity haunted house attraction was only 13" deep. It was tested to support a concentrated 800 lb. live load to ensure the safe passage of patrons using powered wheel chairs.

The gallery includes Adobe Illustrator design drawings, photos of a 1/12th scale model I built to test the design theory, shots of the pit effect under construction and as installed. Some of the images are animated GIF files.

A walk-through tour and details of the scene can be viewed in the .WMV video clip. To view it, you will need Windows Media Player or Flip4Mac.
