Alpine Slide Tomorrow

So, we’re taking Danny on the Alpine Slide tomorrow.  Decided to look up some videos of it, this one was pretty awesome.

Found this very interesting stuff online, and holy shit!!! I totally want to do something ‘like’ this. Not quite the same myself, but definitely gives me some ideas.

I have been working on and off for about 2 years building our “D&D ROOM” to hold most of our collection and give us a cool place to play. I did 99.9% of the work myself with just a bit of help in the attic from my brother Shawn. All lighting is controlled by the DM via a dimmer/control box mounted under the table. When you walk in the lights automatically come on via a contactor mounted in the closet. There is also hidden strobe and fog machine for effects. I also mounted speakers in the beams and have a sound system in the closet. Here are a few photos…
