This will probably be the last time it goes up as a full package.
Then one more time as 2 seperate packages. The ride package and the dungeon package. BUT the ride package must sell first before getting rid of anything else. It's that time of year to either sell it or keep it for another season. So there is still time to assemble it if purchased.
Here is the link.

Tom, I'm so sorry to read the circumstances that have lead to you needing to sell this ride. Positive thoughts, energy and prayers coming out to you, your wife and family!

Last year we would have been ALL OVER THIS! We had and spent the budget. This looks like an amazing deal, even at the buy it now price. I hope I don't step out of line, but I'm going to post a link on the main forum to this thread so it isn't missed. I would hope that this ride sells to someone who will maintain it and keep the legacy of the ride going. You've probably already thought of it, but have you contacted D.A.F.E.? http://www.dafe.org/

I hope you experience a miracle that allows you to keep the dark ride for years to come, but if it's time to turn the page and start a new chapter, I'm sure some lucky individual will adopt your baby and treat her well!

I appreciate your thoughts and kind words. And by all means, post where you see fit.
Yes, my mom had a massive heart attack on Fathers day and so with this and my wife still recovering from back surgery, I feel my assistance will be needed more and more with family as time goes on.
Rick from DAFE keeps in touch and pretty much knows I've been looking to sell it. He, like others just can't afford to put time or money into something like this which I fully understand. I couldn't afford a full package like this either (which is why I started from scratch 10 years ago).
So with this in mind and pretty sure the complete ride won't sell, I'll be breaking it down to a little more affordable packages and go from there. The bad thing with doing this is it loses it's originality. But then again I'm sure someone will create something to their appeal and make it a remarkable ride (at least I hope so).
Anyway, thanks again for your input.

Tom

Hey Tom,

I hope your Mother and wife both see speedy recoveries.

I have always admired your darkride and we came very close to making a deal on it years ago.

Send me an email when you get a chance to Dunnerite@aol.com please.

Thanks

Is that the old Bennett's Curse castle?

Yes it is. Majority of it is inside used as walls. It was too large to set up outside, especially with the storms we get from time to time. I keep it up year round and didn't want it getting tore up.

And just to add, the ride auction closes today at 3:00pm cmt for anyone who missed the post. This is for the ride system only this time but I still have everything from the last auction. I won't sell any props/scenes till the ride is sold first. If it doesn't sell, I'll run it another season (right around the corner).

Thanks,
Tom
