In the latest issue of Game Pro, surprisingly there was an article about PKI’s 2002 ride, Tomb Raider: The Ride. I wont re-write the whole article but will point out some interesting points.
“The attraction will take the form of an ancient temple (good guess), be vehicle-based, and include close scrapes with deadly stalactites and boiling lava.”
“But Tim Fisher, executive vice president of Paramount’s Kings Island, stated in a press release, “This attraction will change the face of thrill ride history and become one of the greatest adventure rides in the world”
“We want guests to feel like real tomb raiders from the moment they enter the attraction.” Tim Fisher
Well, there you have it. Doesn’t seem like your average “flat ride in a box” to me.

With fear of this turning into another boring thread, I still think it's a Topspin (or whatever they're called) with stalactites hanging from the ceiling and "lava" at the bottom.

How can a Top Spin be in 3-D? If people would just open their eyes and read the little article it says it will be brought to life in an amazing 3-D adventure! So there you have it, no flat ride in a box, a new 3-D type of ride that no one has ever seen before.

Suit yourself, I also think it's one of Huss's new giant versions of the top spin.
Screamscape said it himself: "The first rides we’ll get to see in early 2002 look to be a Giant Top Spin (Tomb Raider @ PKI), and a Giant Frisbee (Psyclone @ PCW)."

Sounds like that article merely rephrased (barely) the press release.
To be honest, I really don't want to know what it is until I'm on it. I think it will be alot more fun. Kind of makes me wish I could forget everything I already know.
