I'm trying to figure out what is what in Knoebel's Haunted House. I'm sure certain things are Tracy Gags, like Ruth. But some are harder to spot, and some are well disguised by overhauls. I'm also trying to figure out the exact names of the stunts as they were in the catalogs, but since many of them seem to have been taken from their original "Set", they are going to be harder to make sense of.
First off, I'd like to point out that West View Park's Haunted House ended up sending a lot of it's stuff to Knoebel's after it when down. Also, Kennywood's Safari, which was build by Modern Art Studios, looks very similar to some of Tracy's Jungle works. So we're looking at some knock off's too.
The Bat provides a mystery. Look at this 1999 photo and tell me there aren't some similarities to the Tracy Bat in our Haunted House.
Of course, we can see they have overhauled the bat as of today; almost completely re-built:
This one looks like a Tracy Chic, but what gag did she come from?
If you look at the pictures of the ride back in 1999 and compare it to now, you'll see a lot of differences. Nearly everything looks like they've gone over it now.

The only stunts I think are Tracy are Ruth, the Ooga Booga Man, and possibly the head in the dungeon. The Ooga Booga man was also in Hunt's Pier Jungeland. The clock, hands, drinking skeleton (formerly the skeleton painter) are Funni-Frite, and maybe even the attic spiders and the organist. Tracy did use maniquins, like the dummy car in the Haunted House and the upside-down room, but those you don't really see their full bodies. I don't think he'd just use a full dummy for a prop. Great pictures!

HHMacabre: Hi everyone! Did I hear word of new additions in the ride? How is the Mineshaft?

Brandon: Yes, there are supposed to be two new effects installed this year. I don't have any insight yet but will share the information once I receive it. I don't think anything has been done with the Shaft.

Brandon: There have also been three additional mini shooting galleries installed around the park. Pics and information to come a later date at ochh.net.
