Looking for the best Halloween props in the industry, the show's producers approached the companies generally regarded to be the cream of the crop providers of haunting props and special effects, including Night Frights (with their popular talking bust), and several others.

Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk Features Ghost Bust in $9 Million Renovation!

Ten years in the making, the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk has finally completed extensive renovations to their haunted attraction. Construction began by completely leveling the existing structure and digging deep into the seaside earth to create an elaborate, two-story building that will nearly double the size of the 36 year old haunted attraction. The Haunted Castle will deploy an entirely new theme featuring state-of-the-art animatronics and effects. And who, pray tell, was chosen to be featured as the King of this Haunted Castle? None other than the Ghost Bust!

exterior
Two unique custom routines were commissioned by R and R Creative Amusement Designs, Inc., the L.A.-based firm responsible for bringing the new Haunted Castle to life. President, Rick Bastrup first saw the Ghost Bust in Las Vegas and was impressed enough to cast the effect as the main character that appears several times throughout the haunt: once as a standard bust, again as a fully clothed floating apparition, and a third time as a scrim effect. Not only did Night Frights create the bust and floating apparition versions, but also provided the voice and sound design for the scrim effect produced by industry veterans Sally Corp.
"It's an amazing achievement." says Mike Fox, Night Frights' President and creative director. "To see how much work went on behind the scenes for the past several years and to see how it's all come together in time for the grand opening... I'm proud to have been a small part of the Boardwalk's long history."

The Haunted Castle is now open to the public.

Night Frights Scares Up Ghosts for Virginia Scaregrounds

Located near the northern border of Virginia, Virginia Scaregrounds' Paxton Manor is an eerie excursion into the supernatural. Built in 1877, the mansion was host to a series of untimely deaths for nearly a century until the death of matriarch Rachel Paxton at age 92. It's said that her ghostly image can still be seen roaming the grounds late at night, with reports of a ghastly image appearing in the second story window, lifting a long-dead finger to point to the bodies of her loved ones buried in the cemetery beyond.

Haunt director John Lombardi sought the help of the video artisans from Night Frights to reproduce the scene as a video projection to be cast in the actual window where the apparition is said to appear, giving visitors a chilling glimpse into the spirit life that lingers there. Click the image below to witness the apparition yourself!
