Default Air Scare

So I'm building new entrance pillars for this year. I was thinking of a dedicated air line, prob 1/2 inch hose to a 1/2 inch solenoid fitted with a power washer tip. All inside of the pillar with the hole coming from a skulls mouth on side of the pillar. As they walk by, they get a blast of air. Not an air canon but just a burst of air as they walk between the pillars... What do you all think, or have any of you done this.... Don't be "scared" to criticize lol!!!!

I've seen videos here of haunters using a burst of air as a scare (that rhymes). It's very effective.

Great Idea. I have been wanting to do something similar. Just have a blast of air as the TOT's start to head up the drive way. There is a Halloween store not to far from me open all year and as you leave the exit door it gives you a blast of air at your knees. It scares everyone the reactions of the customers are great.

It will work fine. I took one of those long folding leg spiders from walmart. Put a peice of copper tubing through him. It was a great scare.
