Tourist Attractions & Parks;Jun2013, Vol. 43 Issue 4, p100
The article discusses how some Haunted House attractions use innovative lighting to enhance the scary experience of their guests. According to D'Ann Dagen, producer of Hangman's House, the site uses a variety of lighting to create its effects including par38 can lights, ultraviolet and lasers. Planet of Terror owned by Rick Pollard uses only Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting to create its frightening effects because it runs cool all the time, saves energy and project very well.
