Better than the real prison box.

About Me High-end Shopper
I use the box with the man I bought at Spirit Halloween and set him in a chair and wired it to activate hen the box is turned on. It is so real looking. Great sound and lighting.

Bought 1 and it only lasted a few uses and the door got stuck. Took it back and got another 1 which worked great! A great addition to the front of my house and to electrocute the electrocutioner

Great w Electrocuted Prisoner or alone
Great to use with the Electrocuted Prisoner Decoration or by itself. It is scary when the door pops open.

About Me Budget Shopper
One of spirits best decorations! I was very impressed with it! The only problem is, when the door opens, I can see the super glue and the wires don't look that realistic, but very nice anyway!

I saw it in store and absolutely loved it. On October 31, 2013 I picked him up for the low price of $50. I have heard people say he breaks easy, I had mine activated several times on Halloween night, and a year later he still works. If he breaks, most likely you're treating him wrong. DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT hang him on the wall because of his fast swing action, he will rip the tacks off the wall, fall, and break his door.

WORKS EVERY TIME, LOVE THE INTERACTION WITH DEATH ROW
It is so awesome, i think the reaason it breajs for other people is because they dont take care of it properly. At our haunt this year it was amazing and I took it trick-or-treating with me and everyone loved the suprise. Next year I'm having a prison theme and he willactivate either john doe or deathrow if I get them.

Its going to be a really nice addiction to my haunted house this year, I'm sure it's going to be our trick or treaters favorite and will scare everyone! Cant wait for Halloween!
Excellent Customer Service!!
Purchased for outdoor Halloween display (but this would be in protected weather-wise area). Great sound effects and animation. However the first one delivered didn't work. I contacted Customer Service and received a reply within 5 minutes, not the 1-2 days from other businesses. (Still haven't heard from payment company (over 10 days ago)). Spirit Halloween responded immediately, resolved the problem and sent a replacement immediately. Never experienced such great, outstanding customer service ever!! Great Experience!!! Replacement works great!

Great Prop - lots of noise, action! Fun!
I used this with the prop of the electrified man, built a chair for him and "started" him with this box. An excellent scene - everyone (all ages) loved it. The box is a must.
Fun halloween use
Most excellent Prop.

Great Add On for Electric Prisoner Prop
By The Chepachet Hachet
from Chepachet RI
A super prop for the price...has all the bells and whistles to add to the show.
AWESOME WITH DEATHROW INMATE PROP
from Auburn, Wa
Mine looks a little different than this one displayed... but it is the same thing. Does a great job with the Deathrow Inmate prop and is really fun and scary! Love it!!!
from berlin, nj
this product is very loud and should have adjustable volume for indoor use
DON'T BE DISCOURAGED, EASY FIX
By GORGON AND MELNAC
from PULASKI, VIRGINIA
BOUGHT ONLINE AS HALLOWEEN DECORATION FOR PARTY. IT ARRIVED QUICKLY BUT WHEN WE OPENED THE PROP AND TESTED IT THE DOOR KEPT OPENING AND CLOSING. THE SOUNDS OPERATED GREAT BUT THE DOOR WASN'T WORKING WITH THE SOUND.AFTER READING THE COMMENTS AND TROUBLE SHOOTING GUIDE I TRIED BENDING THE MICRO-SWITCH CONTACTS AND THE PROP WORKS CORRECTLY. I ALSO HOOKED THE BOX TO THE ELECTROCUTION PROP AND THEY WORK GREAT TOGETHER. WE CAN'T WAIT FOR THE PARTY AND TRICK OR TREAT. I WOULD SUGGEST THAT YOU TALK WITH CUSTOMER SERVICE BEFORE TAKING THE PROP APART BECAUSE THAT MAY VOID ANY REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES. THE MICRO-SWITCH IS LOCATED AT THE BOTTOM LEFT INSIDE BOX AT THE SPRING AND MOTOR.
Mad Scientist Scene Setter
By Halloween Ron
from Dallas/Fort Worth
When we first opened the package, it did not function. But I am persistent and carefully opened the unit. After a few minutes located a small micro switch that was not engaging. After adjustment the box worked. Now the unit will be a main attention getter for the mad scientist lab we are building for our Halloween display. The Big Ben set for our display is 10 feet tall and has lights and sound.
good with deathrow!
By Halloween animatronic guy
Cool prop,I like to use this with deathrow.The only cons I have is that it is delicate.One time I showed this to my sister it scared her, but she manualy shut the door and it broke.I got another one and it works!I just wish they weren't so delicate,if it was not so delicate I would give it five stars.
Good prop-use with electrocuted prisoner
from Montgomery, AL
This is best used with the electrocuted prisoner, although both props work fine by themselves. We used them together and that enhanced the fun/effect. The volume is a little too loud as it drowned out the screams from the prisoner, but a little duct tape over the speaker solved that.
from sioux falls, sd
Very awesome! Was disappointed it doesn't work with a footpad on its own but still pretty cool.
A great addition to my haunted cabin
from Creola, OH
This item became a major part of a unique Halloween project at our haunted cabin. It fit the bill perfectly. Thanks
Great home haunt addition!
from Northern indiana
I received mine in the mail about 5 days before halloween this year and hung it on my haunted porch with my other decorations. The trick or treaters loved it and so did I. It could have been made a little larger, but it works really well and I am very pleased. I hope more products like this are made. The only other thing I would have liked is a sound adjuster, but for the price it is a great product. If you have a small haunt and want to add something cool the kids will like, this is it. Go for it, I believe you will be pleased.

The prop is a cool feature for a electric chair.I alterated the switch to work off a push me button so people wouldn't break it. over all I scared many kids
Electric Box Decoration
Very cool prop and good design. My only concern is that it "works when it wants to." Sometimes I pull the switch, and it flashes and makes it sounds and the door pops open. Other times, the lights and sounds work, but the door doesn't. This seems to happen mostly when it hasn't been used for a while and needs to warm up. But in the store, it is being used constantly and has the same problem. Other than that it is a cool prop.
Excellent Sound FX and Lights
By Pappa Gaff
from Encinitas, CA
Hangs on the wall in my work shop. Sound is very loud but clear. The sound FX are accurate and complex. Lighting is well designed. We love it.Tip for some: The 'loose wires' (they are loose on purpose) need to be folded away from the door mechanism to allow door to close properly.I read other reviews but ours works perfectly and is a fun addition. (I do not use the M. I. T. feature.)
By GK HAUNTED HOUSE
Really amazing prop. For me there is two minor cons, the skull in the box and the box itself is not as detaileda s it is on picture. I am not using the prop to activate any other prop, because i think it looks awesome even without activating a prop. It is going somewhere in my asylum. Also visitors dont know what to do so we do have to put up signs with an arrow pointing down that says"Pull The Switch,If You Dare.". But besides that its a great prop. I am very happy that Spirit sold this amazing prop.

Looks good in Frankenstein section of hAUNTED HOUSECould be a little bigger and stronger
Good but not without problems
from Buffalo, New York
When I first saw this at Spirit I knew we had to pick one up for future haunts and waited for the half-off sales. We got the last one at the store and sadly it has the same problem of inaccurate sequencing which left it open or popping open at the wrong time. I disabled the pop open mechanism and now it is a flashy and attention grabbing prop for our electro-shock therapy room. Full price? No. If you can get it a half off then go for it. If Spirit can get a new run where ths problem has been fixed that I will pick up a second one forthe full effect.
