While much of the movie focused on Kevin McCallister, played by Macaulay Culkin, the real star of the show is the booby traps that were set in the McCallister home. By using everyday objects like water, irons and ornaments, Kevin planned an impressive ambush that still inspires laughter. In the movie, Kevin managed to thwart the duo of burglars known as the Wet Bandits, but would you be able to bypass all of the booby traps?
This infographic of the McCallister house mapped out the floor plan of the Home Alone house and the booby traps from the movie.
The detailed image shows each of the incidents where the burglars were caught off guard by something unexpected. Look closely to see how many booby traps you can find. Some of the Home Alone booby traps were painful, and some were surprising.

Ryan St. Clair of Weill Cornell Medical College told The Week that the iron falling through the laundry chute would have caused ificant harm if the incident happened in the real world. The four-pound steam iron falling 15 feet to the basement would have had enough force to fracture all of the bones around the eyes.
Another dangerous trap was the red-hot doorknob. To glow that color, the metal is estimated to be about degrees Fahrenheit. The doctor says, "The temperature of that doorknob is not quite hot enough to cause Harry's hand to burst into flames, but it is not that far off.
After the Wet Bandits robbed Kevin's neighbor's house, they left the faucet running as a part of their ature calling card. As we see at the end of the movie, this caused the home's basement to flood with nearly a foot of water. Total damages probably included first-story flooring, drywall, the furnace, hot water heater, and more. Ultimately, it was Old Man Marley who defeated the burglars. However, Kevin's antics helped stop his family from being robbed and the inevitable flood damage the Wet Bandits would leave behind.Gesaffelstein \u0026 The Weeknd - Lost in the Fire (Official Video)
