Suggested addition to the Sub Species: Operation Lockdown
experience should it continue:
So Phalanx requires cadets to help stop this alien species and the world from coming to an end as we know it. Quite frankly they don't care about you really, you're a pawn and in numbers to help them out.
My thoughts to the start off this experience would be that you all gather outside The Swiss cottage, the Phalanx Operatives are located within two (maybe three) transport vans (some cheap Phalanx logo sticker on the side) pre-parked nearby waiting for the experience to commence. The actors reverse / drive down to the Swiss Cottage and come out all shouting and round up the cadets.
A debrief is had like in the experience currently and then everyone goes into the transport vans. For guests in the back there is no visible windows to see where they are going. Then the actors drive them around (a nice steady 10mph H&S you know!) as seen in the diagram (following the red route) for a minute or two and park outside the entrance to her ladyship gardens.
The actors jump out of the van (maybe possible alien ambush & some Operatives don't survive) guests will just hear the commotion outside and then the Corporal / Operative opens the van doors, you all rush towards the maze entrance and down (for those who've done it you'll know where, you're safe for now..) and then the experience continues as normal.
The experience was epic as is but having an introduction like this would make it even more epic imo as we were all stood outside Sub Species maze waiting for 10pm.
Obviously I'd love whatever budget to be pumped into the mazes however I think this below prop could bring added tension.
So Molly Crowe
, while standing in the queue line you have the old time lighting and with the below prop (see videos) using different audio (done especially for Molly Crowe) at timely intervals think you could create quite an atmosphere at night, probably wouldn't bother with it during the day. This doll starts off and finishes in a crouching position and slowly rises & gets more demonic. Spirits possessing dolls, the thought just sends shivers down me already lol.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BiqgLxfAqs4https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6GctkG43CQ
[Taken from my post in Scarefest 2015 thread] Also for Molly Crowe
should it return the end finale could even use something like the Blood Walls seen in the promo video below. You could have the minister performing the exorcism, Molly splatters blood all up the wall/writes something. Then the lights go out, the floor shakes and the rest you should know.https://vimeo.com/45174646
