As part of the Darkride and Funhouse Enthusiasts' celebration of the Old Mill's 100th birthday, a walkthrough of the Exterminator was given by the park. You can find pictures of the track, theming, and killer rats in the Kennywood Boulevard gallery.

Very cool pictures. It's still hard to believe this is an off-the-shelf coaster. It just shows you what themeing can do for a ride.

I'm always impressed when I see a dark ride with the lights on. It shows how sketchy the themeing can be when used properly to stimulate your imaginination.

The drops actually look like a bigger deal with the lights on. Perhaps it's because it's enclosed. I love that ride, and I can't wait to get back on it!

That was fast! Cool photos, glad you could share them with everyone. Actually, the original tour planned wasn't going to be quite as involved but the Kennwood folks always have a surprise, so we climbed everywhere on Exterminator (and Goldrusher too). Some even braved climbing teh lift hill! Great time. If anyone would like information on the Darkride and Funhouse Enthusiasts, please see our web site at www.dafe.org
And to Jim Fisher, if you like lights on Dark Ride tours, DAFE and NAPHA are the two best places to get them.
