TxTPEG Design Projects
Each semester, TxTPEG members will work on projects that are inspired by the amusement industry. Projects can be sponsored by corporations or be suggested by members. If you have any suggestions or would like to sponsor a TxTPEG project, contact us!
TxTPEG House of Horrors
House of Horrors was a step up from our previous Wreck the Halls haunted house. Planning started over the summer as our haunted house opened October 19th and 20th. The haunted house took over 800 guests through several different themed rooms which combined to total over 1,100 square feet. The project combined engineering design, prop making, artistic talent, costuming, makeup and theatrical lighting to create a one of a kind experience for the UT campus.
TxTPEG Members designed and built a 5 foot long mechanical pinball machine utilizing woodworking, rubber bands, springs and laser cutting to create a working game we were able to bring with us to tabling events in order to gain exposure for the org.
Wreck the Halls Haunted House
TxTPEG Members designed and built a 25' x 25' functioning Haunted House. After opening the holiday themed house to the public, TxTPEG had over 100 people come through.
TxTPEG members worked to design and build a operable tilting maze. The maze consisted of paths throughout the UT campus, and the student (marble) must avoid holes and go through obstacles in order to reach the UT tower.
