I was reading the article at laffinthedark.com about spook-a-rama. It said that the devil stunt was made by an unknown manufacturer, and another identical stunt in laff in the dark in Riverside Park in Agawam,M.A. ( a bill tracy ride). The devil in spook-a-rama came from rockaway playland's hell n' back ride (another bill tracy ride). My theory is that there were only two made by bill tracy and put in to those two rides. and spook-a-rama's is the only one left in existance Here's a pic of the stunt in spook-a-rama this picture that was taken in 2003. The only thing that's changed in the stunt since 2003 is it's head.
the bat is actually a sward. I was surprised how close the devil and the rest of the stunts are to you when you ride. It's hard to remember some things because I only rode it once due to It's ridiculous $5.00 a ride. same with ghost hole. why would spook a rama and ghost hole charge more money than the haunted house or rehoboth beach haunted mansion? (the scariest dark ride ever!) I hope deno's wonder wheel makes a pay one price bracelet , then I would ride spook a rama all day! next time I go to coney island I'm going to take flash pictures in side spook a rama like I did in the haunted house.

They are both the same length, but the Ghost Hole has mostly all distortions stunts, so it's considered to be scarier. I would have to agree with you on the overpriced rides, but when it comes down to it, the Cyclone is worth $8.00 to ride...they could make it $10.00, it would still be worth it...I'm still confused on how they make a profit, since Ghost Hole and Spook-O-Rama are both a minute and a half, and at $5.00 or $6.00 per rider...I mean how the H-E-L-L to they get that kind of profitable value of a 1 minute ride, when Trimper's Charges $3.00 for a 5/6 minute ride?
I actually found spook a rama to be scarier. In spook a rama things fly,reach,and swing at you and the stunts are literally inches away from your face. ghost hole wasn't that scary, it was more amusing and funny. the cyclone is defiantly worth its price, it is now my all time favorite roller coaster. I only spent about 2-3 hours at coney island because of ridiculous prices. compare that to my tip to trimpers were I spent about 5-6 hours because of good prices and pop wrist bands.

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.
