Re: Dark ride ideas

Hi everyone, long time no see. This is basically a trommel with mirrors: https://i.imgur.com/pHLk2p7.jpg The 4 grey sides you see are supposed to be (acrylic, not glass) mirrors. This creates infinite, revolving reflections. Lasers and coloured lights can be shone into the tunnel to create a kaleida...

Re: Duel and the Gloomy Wood - A future?

I've been thinking about this Hell ride a lot, not that people are ever interested in what I do so I promise this will be my last post about it if it doesnt get any reaction. Queue scene As we come to the end of the que we climb some stairs. These lead to a kind of balcony/bridge above a hospital cu...

Re: Duel and the Gloomy Wood - A future?

You want to be careful not to make it too scary. I'm certain I read that it was John Wardley's intention to make it a family-friendly, laugh in the dark ride. Anything liable to disturb young children would definitely be a step too far. Having said that, kids are a lot more resilient then we give t...

Re: Duel and the Gloomy Wood - A future?

Just another image from my Hell idea, sorry if its a little crude, I'm not a natural designer: http://i1165.photobucket.com/albums/q596/matthew_davids_designs/coffinsforphotobucket_zpsvtyhzcsn.png As we pass by the lids shake violently and blood curdling screems are heard from within the cast iron c...

Re: Duel and the Gloomy Wood - A future?

Re: Duel and the Gloomy Wood - A future?

How would you guys feel about a ride based on visions of Hell? If done correctly this would be the scariest “ghost train” in the world, be the first of its kind and would probably need an age restriction. Dark rides are already getting at Hell so why not go the whole way and create a ride that would...

Re: Bubbleworks 2017 Replacement

I really think a sewer themed ride would be cool. I made this a while back, you could have a room like this (whirlpool room): https://mattsdesignsblog.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/new2.jpg Theres all sort of creatures you could have in there; Giant rats, alligators, ninja turtles lol, even demons. Th...

Re: Bubbleworks 2017 Replacement

I reckon they should turn it into a sewer themed ride. Can you imagine? You can dye the water brown, have scent machines pumping out the smell of sewege and all kinds of legendary sewer creatures.
