 +**Item:** "​Pouncing Bat" Ride Prop
  
 +**Designation:​** Installation (Template)
 +
 +**Storage Contact:** [[/​employees/​darla_thorn|Darla Thorn]]
 +
 +**Number in Storage:** 1
 +
 +**Description:​**
 +
 +A large steel and fiberglass framework, covered in plastic and paint to look like a bat-like monster. Two hinged "​wings"​ and an air-powered lever are attached the back of the prop. When installed with pneumatic power, a trigger can cause the prop to lurch forward and up suddenly and spread its wings with a puff of air.
 +
 +Records provided by SPIDR designate this prop as a "Bill Tracy original;"​ though it is unclear where this particular prop was installed, several similar stunts were used in many Tracy-designed dark rides //(see image below)//.
 +
 +**Reason for storage:**
 +
 +Prop kept in storage per request from the SPIDR Archives. Possible design template for future Faceless entertainment-based projects.
 +
 +**Final Order:** Temporary Storage
 +
 +**Further Notes:** [[employees:​carl_trimper|Mr. Trimper]] was very insistent that the bat be kept out of a box and put on display. I'm not sure why, but it's spooking some of janitorial staff when some prankster or another uses it as a puppet and springs it out from behind a crate or something.
