The pumpkin you carved for Halloween and stuffed with a tiny light might scare a couple of kids at your party, but when you get creative and bring in some foggers, you’ll see the jaws drop around you. You definitely have options when it comes to choosing the right fogger for your event. Just read on and get inspired:

1. Looking to haunt your home party? Try one of the seven foggers from CHAUVET®, like the Hurricane™ 700. It’s popular, affordable, and comes with a free pint of fluid. Plus, this fogger is easy to handle and transport. The fog fluid is water based so you can use it in your house with confidence because it doesn’t leave any residue.

2. Want to go a little overboard? For larger homes or those who really want to get into the Halloween mood, I recommend Hurricane™ 1100, which is still an economical choice. This machine also comes with a remote so you can control it wirelessly. A built-in sensor prompts the fogger to turn off automatically when it runs out of fluid.

3. Ready for ultimate fogging? For the creepiest haunted house and something that may give your neighbors a fright, your best choice is the Hurricane™ 1800 Flex. This fogger puts out enough to cover the entire block! Its special features make your job much easier: it has built-in DMX, a wired timer remote, an adjustable head so you can angle the fog, low-fluid indicator and auto shut down. I recommend you grab the Hurricane™ 1800 Flex for the ultimate Halloween scare!

Now you know what these machines are capable of, you just need to decide which one is best for your haunted house or Halloween party. Let the frightful fog flow!
