Flying Ghosts

Originally created by Scott Axworthy in 1988, the Axworthy Flying Ghost prop is a great effect that is pretty easy to understand conceptually, but always seems to elicit some really hard to follow tutorials.   The prop features ghosts that zip along on a tie line along the path of your choosing.  It’s proven to be a time consuming prop that is prone to bogging down if things don’t go just right, but when it’s working and the ghosts are chugging around your line, it looks awesome.  The Haunted Driveway has done a great job of putting this prop into an easy to understand tutorial that just might inspire someone to give this prop a shot this year.     Items needed to complete this include: Gear motor around 1/8 hp and speed around 110 RPM Wheels made for V-belts, 5 inch diameter Threaded metal rod that will fit the wheels Locking nuts that fit the threaded rod Wood or angled steel to attach the threaded rod Black tie line Fishing line to hang the ghosts Hot glue gun Ghosts...

Ruining Your Life with an Axworthy Flying Ghost...

I’ve always wanted to build an Axworthy Flying Ghost for a haunt.  Unfortunately the spacing of the trees in my yard would make for a ridiculously long run for it so it’s never really been an option to attempt it.  That may be a good thing, though, if you ask Joseph Keller, a.k.a Mr. Macabre.  His short video tutorial on the pros and cons of building one is definitely worth watching and you do get some insight into how this prop is built....
