There's nothing like a layer of
fog floating ominously through the night air to really add a scare to your yard haunt or
Halloween festivities! Fog has that foreboding look to it, things could be slithering
around inside and unseen, adding the element of the unknown for your trick or treaters.
For a yard haunt you can have the fog fill the air or you can build a fog chiller that
will make the fog float close to the ground and around your graveyards tombstones, or
Filling the night air with menacing fog, which your trick-or-treaters must
venture through and wonder what could be lurking within it, a fog machine is an absolute
must for a truly creepy Halloween haunt. But there are times when you might want the fog
to hung the ground rather than disperse through the air. A perfect example would be for a
graveyard scene in your front yard. Instead or in addition to filling the air, you want the fog to slowly drift over
the ground, around tombstones and over burial mounds, or maybe you'd like it to flow out
from under your porch or even down from your roof.
Unfortunately, the very nature
of how these machines produce fog makes this difficult, as the fog fluid is heated to
generate fog which comes out hot and rises in the air. To discourage the fog from rising
the fog has to be cooled down before it is released into the air. The general idea is to
build a device that the hot fog enters and is cooled down as it passes through, i.e. a fog
chiller. The Got
Fog? website has an article describing how
you can build a great fog chiller.
Whether you just place one in your front yard to put a chill
in your visitors, setup a graveyard scene, or are having a Halloween party, adding one or
more fog machines can enhance your visitors Halloween experience. For more information on
