Ham on Rye coming to Magic Mountain

Posted Monday, March 18, 2002 2:41 AM | Contributed by xbombman

Over at the Mountain, construction on the Ham on Rye virtual reality attraction has begun. The ride will be located near Arrowhead Splashdown.

Deja Vu stalled once again while traveling through the Cobra Roll, but no passengers were on the ride at the time.

Also, Riddler's Revenge has re-opened after being down for two weeks.

This is the 2nd time I've heard of this, what the heck is this HoR & what's up with the name? Does it stimulate eating HoR? ;)

With the photo of DV, I noticed the CR evacuation platform is small & flat, unlike those of regular Boomers. How do they get people off the ends of the train? My guess would be a winch of some kind is used to pull the ends over the platform itself.

Ham on Rye is a Virtual Reality attraction. The way it works is you put on your VR goggles and sit in these very comfortable seats. A person then appears on your VR screen and tells you the situation of what is going on. You are then encouraged to participate while the show continues on by moving you hands all around and yelling aloud. Inside your VR goggles there are sensors that that pick up movements of you hands and head, the more you move around the Higher your score. There is also a microphone in your VR system so that you can communicate with the narrator. It's a quite interesting attraction but a little lame I thought. I got to experience the attraction at IAAPA 2001. The attraction costs I believe $175,000. Oh yeah and by the way, it's a pay as you go attraction. I think it's going to cost $5.00 a head. I hope this was a help.

For me, Ham on Rye brings up the image of a deli. Yum :)

Off with the trims!

Perhaps, sometime far far into the future, virtual reality will, just maybe, become useful.

Probably not.

Well it usually vallies due to the cold weather this winter over here in the SCV. The mechanics were testing it in the cold weather on manual mode and I guess they had the pulley cart let go too early. They shouldn't be testing it in below 65 degree temperatures anyway...

Edit: Well, at least it's becoming a routine now. They re-open it a day after each incident. *** This post was edited by I Burn Churro Carts on 3/18/2002. ***

Ham on Rye. Great. Another attraction that you have to pay extra to do. Boy am I hyped! Hey Magic Mountain, get some MORE FLAT RIDES!!!!!

Ham On Rye is considered a game at most parks, at least thats the way the GP looks at it. Most parks I go to have these in their game sections.

I may be confused, but Ham on Rye is the manufacturer and designer of the system and not the name of the ride, correct? Like the one at Paramount's Carowinds will be called 'Cyber Sez'.

Anyone know why RR was down for two weeks? Rehab?

Six Flags Marine World..... Wild Life AND Wild Rides!

Boat69, Your right, I never thought those were rides or even upcharge attractions. They are just glorified games that cost a little more than "Cruisin USA".

RRv vallied during testing 2 weeks ago. They have made some changes to the station.

Why does Riddler's line move so slow?
It's sponsored by AOL. ;)

what was wrong with The Riddlers Revenge anyway ???
what did they change to the station that prevents the train from stalling between the loops ? :confused:

a friend of me in the usa said that they'd better "kill" the trim brakes on Deja Vu, to prevent it from stalling, anyone here that agrees ?
