Interactive Attractions

I'm looking for online information on interactive attractions of any type at theme parks. I'm thinking of anything that the guest can influence the outcome somehow including games of skill funhouses, shooting dark rides, and the water cannons that people can shoot at riders on log flumes. Can anyone recomend any really neat attractions that they might have seen at a theme park that are interactive? Are there any resources for learning about these attractions from a historical/academic standpoint off the top of anyone's head?

Thanks!

How about arcade games? ;)

How about the convergence of attractions and video games?

Can't do this with talking about the old laser tag games.

Can't help but notice that DAFE doesn't have Buffalo Bill's interactive log flume listed. One of my top shoot-em-ups... :)

OK...historically, you must mention caroussels with brass rings. Might have been the first.

Some spinny rides have a wheel between the riders that they can turn to make their car spin.

Knoebels has a new "classic" ride in which you press a foot pedal and your car flips up-side-down.

That would be the Herschell Looper.
I consider the flying scooters, bumper cars, Fly-O-Planes, Rock-O-Planes, Yo-Yos, light gun darkrides and Loopers to be interactive. Find the proper technique for shifting your weight around and even Crazy Mouse coasters could be considered interactive!

I was thinking about Dueling Dragons....but that falls under the category "attractive interactions"... ;)

Happy Friday everyone! :)
