Eleanor is our ghostly spirit that haunts the grounds at Raven Manor Cemetery on each Halloween. She hovers gently above the ground
raising and lowering her hands, as her eyes glow a haunting green at you.|
Among Halloween enthusiasts, Eleanor is known to be a Flying Crank Ghost or FCG for short. She is basically a wire marionette attached to three independent pullys above her, that are driven by a single motor. She has LED lights that make her eyes glow (you choose the color) and a fluorescent black light really creates the great glowing affect.
This is a great addtion to any home haunt. Certainly it is worth the time and effort to build as it will most likely be the eye catcher of your attraction. We built Eleanor for 2001 and plan on being around for many years to come. We built our mausoleum or crypt as a way to house the overhead motor mechanism.
For detailed instructions on building your own FCG, visit the site of its inventor, Doug Ferguson. He has all the info you need, including pictures of FCG's built by others at his site: phantasmechanics.com
