Hanging Bat How-To

  1. Thread a length of fishing line through the tail of a rubber bat.
  2. Find the center point of the elastic string that comes attached to the bat and staple it to the ceiling of the Creepy Corridor.
  3. Repeat 4 to 5 times to create a small cluster of bats.
  4. Thread all the loose ends of fishing line through the top of the Creepy Corridor back wall and tie onto a stick or dowel.
  5. Pull stick back so that bats become flush with the ceiling and release when unsuspecting children walk by.
