Interesting idea. It's not cheap, but it would absolutely be secure.

This made me think of another application since I have to do something major anyway... In the bottom of mine, I have a mask and a hand reaching towards you. A strobe lights that up when Vincent Price laughs. What if you had it where the pit was on the side or end of the hallway (or in some enclosure) but instead of just the pit, you had multiple hands reaching out and a strobe stayed on lighting them. You could have the arms rigged up with a motor where they appeared to retract/extend towards you?

And I wonder why I am always in the dog house....

Just whisper, Thanks for posting the bottomless pit.
FYI they are called 2 way mirrors because depending on which side the light is on you can see through either side. Normal (1 way) mirrors will not do this, either the mirror metal coating is too thick, and or they paint one side to protect the coating and keep light from passing through from the other direction. Trivia for the day.
