For those who don't know we have been working on an interactive dark ride for Kennywood Amusement Park. The ride will be called Ghostwood Estates. The ride is interactive haunted mansion, where riders compete for points against other riders. The ride will feature about 100 plus animation in highly detailed haunted mansion.

The ride will also feature a wireless ride system and about 12 Computer animation effects.

We had a lot of cool vendors help us with this project, a full list will be published later. The ride opens in less than one month. We're hoping the ride becomes an instant classic for those haunted dark ride fans. Here are some cool photos of the ride, which will open in less than four weeks.

We have three guys working on the ride everyday this week, doing detail work, and starting this coming Thursday we'll have another four or five people hooking up targets. The following week we'll be installing the sound, and putting the final touches on the ride and testing everything.

I'm sure the first weekend will have some bumps but overall I think we'll have this thing ready to go!

Let me know if anyone can come out the opening weekend. I should be there.

Sweet, they have talked about this over on screamscape.com and DAFE. I'm sure it will be a hit, everyone loves a dark ride. I would love to go to KennyWood some day, I'm a big roller coaster and dark ride fan.
