Effects To Go

Welcome to Effects To Go!

Jake Farmer has been involved in the haunted attractions industry since 1999 when he first acted in a professional haunt.  He caught the bug and went on to be involved in more aspects of the haunt and theme park business including scenic work, management, show writing & directing, and of course, technical matters.  He’s honed these skills at various attractions and theme parks over the years, and is also a licensed pyrotechnician.  Since 2013 he’s been paired up alongside Allen Hopps as the Technical Director & Assistant Show Designer at Dark Hour Haunted House in Plano, Texas where he makes the magic for multiple haunted events throughout the year.

In early 2018 Jake took his years of acquired knowledge about special effects, theme parks, & event operations, and formed Effects To Go, LLC.  The goal of ETG is to create impressive, low-maintenance effects that bring your attraction to life and repeatedly WOW your customers.  But that’s not all…  Jake is available for consulting work as well.  Having worked 13+ combined years of full time jobs in the theme park and haunted house markets, as well as conducting countless professional fireworks displays for special events, Jake has learned a few things about the seasonal event and live entertainment business.  From bumping up your FX game, to attraction & story design, to operational logistics, Jake can help.

Feel free to browse the site and checkout the products & services ETG offers.  If you have any questions, please contact Jake at info@effectstogo.com  Unlike this page, he’ll write back in first person.

Happy Haunting!
