So, when not planning trips to Vegas, our family tends to go all out for holidays.....with a young family we believe it's all about making memories. So, when I stumbled across some pics on the net, we decided to run with it. I asked a friend who is an amazing master craftsman to build us a spaceship. I bought all the supplies, and he put the whole thing together for us. The result was really quite stunning, I would say it is at least movie set quality. It took 100's of hours to put together, and it's a beast, 9 feet round. And no, it doesn't un-assemble. (don't ask what we do with it out of season, especially since our garage only has 8 foot doors, separating each car with columns, whoops, doesn't fit, lol!) It's built on the angle to give it the appearance it crashed, and we add sod to the impact area to finish the effect, as well as some random aliens to the yard. It ended up actually drawing some local media attraction last year, all the neighbourhood kids loved it. Nightly we would keep the hatch open, set the fog machines, pipe out eerie music from the house, and kids were welcome to enter the UFO. There are working buttons inside that change the light scheme fort the control panel. It fits comfortably 2 kids around 8 years old, one more if they squish! We ended up with about 300 trick or treaters last year. Our whole family dressed as various sic-fi or alien creatures, and it was a lot of fun to create. The spaceship crashed once again into our yard this year, and hope that the kids enjoy what is likely to be a tradition each year for us! I've tried loading a 1 minute video of the full effect with everything going, but not having luck on that yet! If I can figure it out, I'll add it later! Happy Halloween VMB!
