For the last four years, my family has planned, designed, bulit, and run an amature haunted house/maze each Halloween. We built the whole tunnel in our yard and made nearly all of our props.
The leader of the outfit is my dad. He's is also the one who built 95% of the Tunnel and desinged and made his own automated animatronic-type props.
Then there's me, mostly in charge of costumes and decorating inside the Tunnel, and my younger brother and sister as well as other family members and friends.
This past year (2010), we took admission and donated the proceeds to the Make A Wish Foundation.
