Building A Secret Room

Halloween is only a week away so it's time to get your scary gear in place. The crew at Instructables has provided a guide for creating a secret room for trapping and scaring your guests.

Although Halloween isn't as big a deal in Australia as other parts of the world, this project looks like a great prank. And I suspect that the project could be re-purposed for other applications like a secret cupboard.

    If only we did Halloween here.. I mean.. yes there are some kids that go around trying to get freebies.. but honestly, halloween is the least celebrated holiday here.

      Personally, I'd like it to stay that way.

        Definitely. Halloween is just another event to force you to buy plastic crap nobody needs. When I was a kid back in Scotland we used to go guising on Halloween; like trick or treat, but you actually had to DO something (sing a song, tell jokes etc.) and you might get a few sweets or some fruit (yes, we do have fruit in Scotland). People used to make an effort, rather than sticking on a plastic mask and yelling "trick or treat" and expecting something for nothing as they seem to do today.

          Uh oh. Did I just turn into my dad?

    Halloween is just an awesome excuse to go to a party dressed in the geekiest costume I could squeeze from my mind grapes.

    i love halloween

      Me too. I convinced my workmates to decorate the office a couple of years ago and we had great fun ( Since then we haven't done it again due to all the complaints that it's'an American thing'. I find this a bit bogus if you look at the history of halloween ( And anyway it's more fun than putting up tacky christmas lights all over your house (I also don't see the non-christians offering to work through Christmas day or Good Friday).
