How would you guys feel if they made the HH a shooting dark ride? Not change anything really, just have targets that when hit, trigger the animation. Maybe some new interactive props thrown in. And adding laser guns to the coffin-cars.
I have mixed feelings if that would happen. It might make the HH more fun and attract a younger generation. But on the other hand, it will probably cheapen the attraction's historical value and significance.
I've never been a fan of the shooting games...like Ghostwood Estate at Kennywood. You have to put in all this effort just to get things to move? I don't think so! I'd rather things be triggered by each individual car.
And I don't think the HH would be willing to spend the kind of money it would take to put in lasers, targets, guns, etc. ha ha!
My haunted attraction for 2012 is called RavenCroft (at Cobham Manor).

Shooting dark rides do look fun, even though I've never experienced one yet. But, I do know that it doesn't belong in the Haunted House, or any other Bill Tracy ride. Those target things are great on their own, but they need to stay away from the classics!

I haven't been to Ghostwood yet but based on the footage I saw on youtube, I would sum it up by saying I love the look of the house/ props but hate the laser gun concept....I think it takes away from the experience....Instead of letting the story/visuals envelope around you, You merely shoot at stuff and make it move....I like doing that sort of thing at the old shooting galleries but not when I'm riding in a haunted house.....Haunted house rides are like movies to me....I want to kick back, take it all in and enjoy the adventure....ZR

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.
