Here are some fun ways to incorporate your hot tub into your Halloween party this year to make it a unique and chilling experience. See below for tips to help you throw the best Halloween hot tub party around.
Don’t Horrify Your Guests-Make sure your hot tub is clean
Though you may want to scare your guests on Halloween, you don’t want to scare them out of your hot tub. Make sure you test the water and balance the pH and alkalinity and clean the filter.
Tell people you have a hot tub so that they bring a swimsuit and wear costumes that they can easily change out of. For even more fun, test the creativity of your guests by challenging them to make their swimsuit a part of their costume.
How about transforming your spa into an “Acid Tub” for the evening? Set your lights to green. You can add a submersible green LED light for an even more striking effect. You could hang a “Danger Acid” sign near your hot tub to create the perfect illusion.
Or, how about a large witch’s cauldron where your guests become the missing ingredient. Change your LED lighting to purple and create a sign that reads “Boiling Witch’s Cauldron: Humans Needed”. Place some witch’s hats, brooms and other witch props around the hot tub to reinforce the illusion. Then, watch your spa transform into a cauldron as you take off your hot tub cover and see purple-lit steam float into the sky.
Or, if you really want to spook your guests, turn your hot tub into a “Dead Man’s Pool” for the night. Switch your LED lighting to red and add submersible red LED lights to your water for a more blood-red appearance. Place plastic skeletons, bones, body parts, and skulls on the area around your hot tub. Then, hang a sign that reads, “Dead Man’s Pool: Enter If You Dare”
You could set up a fog machine somewhere in your backyard to create a truly eerie environment. Stick fake tombstones in your grass, lay skeletons on the floor and put rubber snakes, insects and rats in your bushes. You can also cut out bat shapes from black construction paper and hang them in trees, drape fake cobwebs over your bushes and stick motion sensor props near where people will be.
A party isn’t a party without music, and great Halloween tunes can really help set the mood. You could start with mix of Halloween classics like Thriller and Monster Mash and Jaws and Psycho theme songs. As the night progresses, you can play normal party songs or alternate between Halloween classics and traditional party music.
Sickeningly Good Food and Drinks
Some great snack ideas are chips (Bone Shards) and salsa labeled “Blended Man” and guacamole labeled “Blended Frog”. Pinterest has a plethora of ideas. Make sure you have plenty of water available. It is important that guests stay hydrated while soaking in warm water.
Have a Ghoulishly Good Time!
