Here’s an incredibly cool Crush Room you can make for this Halloween. Of course, the you don’t want to be stuck underneath the contraption as you will be “crushed” to death. While this is a fun project, you might want to make sure to put some safety features not to crush you or your friends.
This room was quite a project (big by my standards, anyways). The point of this room (pun intended) was to get the kids into a closed room, then have spikes emerge from the ceiling and have the ceiling start to lower downward. It required a sturdy 4′ x 7′ x 10′ frame, thirteen carved foam-cast skulls, 26 flexible foam spikes and a false ceiling. I almost gave up on the project because, of all things, I couldn’t find a good way to make the spikes. Eventually, I figured out a way that worked. The finished room was a big hit and really creapy. Well worth the effort.
