Scooby dark ride to open at Dominion in 2004

Posted Tuesday, October 28, 2003 3:55 AM | Contributed by auggie

Scooby-Doo and the Haunted Mansion will appear at Paramount's Kings Dominion for the 2004 season. The animated adventure begins as guests board their very own replica Mini-Mystery Machine that travels through ghastly graveyards, creepy corridors, and down into dingy dungeons. While winding through the mansion, riders are equipped with "Fright Light" ghost blasters to zap ghosts and collect points. Points are tallied at the end of the experience to see who has the best ghost-zapping ability. The ride will be located in the Kidzville section of the park.

Cool beans... but sounds EXACTLY what Canada's Wonderland has already had for a number of years.

Not to down it... it's actually one really cool ride that adults get a kick out of, just as much as the kiddies... er... or at least, I did.

This is REALLY old news. Like I'm talking a month and a half. Oh well...

I still like Buzz Lightyear MUCH more. The guns here are bad and the ride is pretty boring.

Well I guess we've gotta wait a year or more to find out just what...if anything will be constructed on the former Diamond falls site.

This is however a smart move on PKD's part,they needed to attract more from the family demographic & this is just the ride to do it.We've still got DZ to keep us satisfied with the park until the next major attraction is added,most likely in 2005 for PKD's 30th anniversary.

I'm really glad to hear about parks putting in mellow stuff. One coaster after another gets old after a while.

Uhhh. . . .no it doesn't. Bring on the coasters!

As Mitch always said, "Never wave to someone you don't know, because what if they don't have a hand?"

I very much agree Word

Uhhh... yes it does.

If you want families to keep returning to the park, you better install attractions that cater to them. Coasters only go so far in attendance.
