    The main issue you will have with a carnival dark ride is through put. Only 2 people in a car, you have the time to load and unload and you only get 5 or 6 cars. Larry had one once. I think he only used it one season and sold it. You could only use it as an add on attraction and because of the lenght of it you can't charge much, combine that with the through out issue and it makes it hard just to pay back the investment. While it may be cool as a novelty, it's not practical as a money maker. Better to put in a 3D attraction or similar event. Remember a carnival ride can have almost an entire year for their season, they open every weekend in a new location. So they have at least 45 weeks to make money, you have 3. It's all in the numbers.
