Spaceship Gimbal
 A Trunk-or-Treat Photo-Booth on a Quest for Candy Portal

I'm Idealet and these are my associates Plinget, Captain Shepard and Floop who are all inspired by the Genius Mastermind, my wife Shani Miller. Our team travels the Galaxy in our spaceship Gimbal seeking to discover the candy portal. On this journey, we expect to meet many species of children that have gathered for an epic Trunk-or-Treat experience.

In order to carry out its epic quest, the Spaceship Gimbal supports Trunk-or-Treat crew and guests with a wide variety of amenities. The spaceship’s alien scanner allows adventurers to detect and identify dangerous aliens that approach from the treacherous planet, Frak, and its deadly moon. The primary ‘bug-a-salt’ gun and backup pistol allow crew and guests to defend themselves from all attackers in and outside the ship. When in flight, the map-scanner surveys and detects candy portals across the universe. The acoustic steering drum-set and silver warp-button provide preprogramed rhythm auto pilot and a swirling light display to indicate when the glowing warp engine engages.
With the glowing warp-engine pulling Gimbal across the universe to the candy portal, we invite you to sit, back, relax and grab a snack from the ship’s kitchen. Perhaps a planet smoothie, a ball of starry toast and or a bite of alien eggs will meet your need for munching as you join us on our epic quest. I hope you enjoy your trip to the candy portal. Thank so much for flying with us. Be careful to avoid the warp drive on your way to your next Trunk or Treat experience.
  
Constructed with one trip to GoodWill, one trip to Amazon, and three late evenings working with Andy Paddock, Ambur Dubill, Christoph Frauzem and David Milewicz.
