can you up a how-to on the PVC frame of that? I have been wanting to make one, but cant figure out the framing with PVC, and I really dont want to pay 500$ to get a frame made.

WOW that's awesome. Are the strings running vertically or horizontally?

Here is some video of it, but when it's done it will be wrapped in plastic. The frame was easy it's just 3 pieces of 1 inch 10 feet long gray electrical conduit, bought at Lowes for $2.40 a piece, then all you do is put them together. Make sure you insert them all the way.

Top shelf!!

I absolutely LOVE using Vixen in clever Halloween set-ups, you have set the bar with this one (both actually). Great sound mixes as well!

Thanks for sharing!

I absolutely loved your Ghostbuster deal. That was really cute and imaginative. Two thumbs up!

+1000 I so have to build the time tunnel for next year! That thing is perfect! Wait! If I build one now, there will still be plenty of time to get it done before this year's Halloween show!

Even the videos are awesome. I couldn't imagine it in person. Nice Job.

Cool design

Could I suggest a set of LOWER hand rails inside the tube if you are thinking of letting trick-or -treaters walk through that..

Vertigo would be a serious concern as well as falling into the lower strings of light as a result.

Trick-or-treaters should bring YOU candy.
Just too cool.

Thanks for all the nice comments and suggestions. The yard haunt is down at my brother's (Robsmlrat) and he gives out a lot of good candy. Here are some pic of the candy.

The tunnel has 56 strings of light (6 inches a part) with 2 fake strings under the ramp, 4 red floods and 10 strobes.

Great job! Really gets me thinking about possibilities for our bridge next year. Also, I never would've thought of using "Jesus Freak" for Halloween, but it works quite well! (brings back memories... been a looooong time since I've heard it)
