I don't really like the idea of skulls being on the front. They looked okay on the right door set on the balcony, but why on the chimney? I also like the ticket booth windows in this one. The bat looks totally different now. I think the Trimpers Bat before looked exactly or similar to the bat on the Haunted House facade that was at West View Park. But after being repainted and renovated over the years has changed its appearence. I thought it was interesting to finally see where that missing piece of roof fit in. I had an idea of where it went, but not how it looked. I don't know if I like the concept drawing more that the ride front now. It looks very similar. I'd say I like them both. About the Whacky Shack. I have a feeling it looked a lot like it did one the concept. On the old 1970 photo of it when it was being built, the right part and left part looked very similar to the drawing. But now, the wood pattern on the left part of it changed and the wood on the right part changed. I like how present day, the window at the top was made to look more likt the concept rather than just have it look like to old one. The concept had the lines on the window like this: | \ But when it was made it was like this: | Hope that's easy to understand! The three pieces of wood that were on the main part of the facade got taken off, the pot was taken out (I'm pretty sure the faucet is still there), the legs on the wood pattern on the right window out-jet is now gone, the dog is now wood and doesn't look the same as the concept, the design on the left top roof was there, I've seen in a 1997 photo. But, two parts of it were taken off, which made it what it looks like today. I don't think those two railing things were there, however, one of the things could've been used on the wall facing you when you come out onto the ramp. I forgot how the railing looks there, but it could be the same. The dip, of corce, was rised. The vulture no longer has a chain attached to it fastening it to the chimney pipe on the right. And, the long piece of wood boarding the top of the building itself and the pattern on it is gone. That's a lot. of stuff taken off! After studing it so long, I didn't know what else more to do than figure out how tall it was according to the scale modle. I found out it was about 22 ft tall.

As much as I love the drawing, the HH as it is, is what I'm the most used to and couldn't trade it for anything! It would be unbelievably cool though to see these drawings if they had ever come to life. The closest thing I've seen to them is in an old promo video for a park in PA with a 2-story haunted house that featured a facade bat somewhat resemblant of the one in these 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.
