Here are a few pics to share (if I did this right LOL).
The graveyard and the swamp. These were taken last year in my Dungeon ride.

How did you build your ride system? Amazing pics though, I LOVE your graveyard! -Tyler

Tyler,

I the ride system is originally built by Pretzel Amusement Co. back in the 50s/60s. I ventured all over the states to get enough track and cars to provide a 11,000 sq ft ride (it could be much bigger if I had the space). 751 feet of track and 12 cars. The scenes I designed/built myself.

I'll provide more pics soon.

Thanks again,

Tom

Hey Guys,

Here is the Dungeon scene from 2007. Hopefully I can post an update of 2008 as we are now open for the spring/summer season. I expanded the Dungeon scene and added more chains (3D eye candy) and a rotating "wheel of Death".
The pic is a bit blurry as I'm still learning the camera thing LOL.
Edit: Also, I included the front lobby scene. I have a new minion's webgun that will replace the webs shown in the pic.
Edit again: I added a pic of Garry who monitors the ride in the back. We have 20 cameras to tend to.

I always wanted to do a dark ride, but of course with much better effects than you find at a typical carnival. Just something about the whole idea of the ride that I always thought was fun.

"Born in the backseat of a Chevrolet,
Going about 110,
My Daddy was a one-legged bar room man
I ain't ever gunna work again!"

"Fun" is how you find it.
(old song quoted. It would be quite a ride aye?)
"Please be seated Mam, now lay down across the backseat we are going to imitate you going into labor as the car speeds up. What year Chevy? How about a 1949, back when Chevys were slow and very scary at 110 miles per hour. We will play back the tape of the camera on your face, best actress this month gets a free tour of the Chevrolet Back Seat Museum in beautiful downtown Wacker, Illinois, yes it is an outdoor museum, why did you ask?"
(They actually make the big money from harvesting the honey left by the swarms of bees in the cars and the rich fertilizer left by the raccoons.)

Wow Tom! I just spotted these pics. The ride looks great. The blacklight props and scenery give a great old school effect to those classic Tracey dark rides. Keep up the great work.

sitting there like that. You should open up the wall and make him part of the haunt.

Thanks laff,

I try to keep the old classic look in the most updated manor. You would be surprised how many older folks says it reminded them of their younger years.
I have more pics of updated scenes I need to post.
Thanks again,

Thanks k67nc,
I assume you had 3D glasses to put on right? The lighting is the most important factor in 3D when using natural scenes. Of course it's important in any haunt.

Hey Larry,
No sir, it's a stand-alone attraction in the middle of Bricktown, Oklahoma City. Built with my 2 hands and the help of just a couple friends. Chuck Salazar and Rick Davis (from DAFE) when he comes in town to visit. 11,000 sq foot area. I'm proud to call it my own and happy to not have park management to deal with or it wouldn't be what it is today.
Thanks for asking,
