Tomb Raider on ride photo?

Tuesday, February 19, 2002 5:08 PM
I was wondering if Tomb Raider the Ride would be having an on ride photo or not?  I'm wanting to start a PKI key chain collection this year and wanted to start off with TR:TR.  There most likley will be, i'm just not 100% sure.

My guess would be no.  It would have to be the most elaborate photography contraption in the world, I think.

But anything's possible, I guess!

I wouldn't bet on it.  If it can take 75 people or so per cycle I doubt they would do it.  It may be too much of an intrusion in the ride building if the conveyance is like a top spin.  While coasters have 30 some people, they just need one camera to do it.

 I could be wrong, but I doubt Tomb Raider will have a camera to take pictures of guest riding the attraction. Those cameras have bright stobes that could easily take away from the 'mystery' on what resides inside the Tomb....among other reasons. =:^)

Ripsaw at Alton had an on ride photo, there's a camera in front of the gondola, which rotates quickly from side to side taking several snapshots as it does so, similar to the way photographers use multiple shots to put those long school-photos together.....then you can just buy the bit with you on.

Well, it might have a camera

Rides like the Tower of Terror (MGM) have a camera that just takes a picture of the whole vehicle, which carries about 20 people.

If they installed several of these, and took the picture at a key moment in the ride, then it could work. The camera flash could even double as a special effect during the ride.

Dark Helmet,

 Yes, I know exactly what you mean.

 Look at Flight of Fear. The picture strobes on that ride make the entry into the whole twisted track section look that much darker. Sometimes I will close my eyes during the launch so I don't see the flash. That way, I can see where I am going a little bit better.

 I still know a few people that think the strobes on FoF are there for show and not where they take your picture.  L

I doubt it, it's hard to take a photo of a Top Spin ;)

Well, if they affixed three cameras to the front of the gondola pointing up at an angle toward the riders (3 to segment the pictures off), I can see it happening. As long as the cameras weren't intrusive of view, and the room was bright enough with a flash, I don't see much of a problem with an on-ride pic.

While I think that could work, I don't know if the park would install cameras on a moving vehicle like that. As far as it being light inside the building, I have a feeling it is going go be all kinds of things. Perhaps when it is light they can 'sneak' the shot like some other rides do.
