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 cubical. Looking down we can see a figure in a bed, bandaged from head to toe and on life support machines. The heart monitor is flat lining. We then walk up some more stairs, into the ceiling. Some of the tiles are removed and as we ascend we see pipes, wires, the underside of lighting fixtures and every thing you would see inside a typical ceiling. Aslong as the sets are of high quality you don't really need to explain to the public whats going on but the idea here is that you've died and are ascending through the ceiling, that you ARE the person in the hospital bed, having an out of body experience. Either that or you are following someone who is dying. It doesn't really matter which a person might choose or not choose.Ride station
We approach a church ruins on a path passed skewed grave stones a bits of broken church. All of this is inside the blacked out warehouse so it feels like night. It becomes clear this is the ride station. Positioned down the front of the station, is the Grim Reaper/Angel of Death who signals for as to come with his animatronic arm.Portal/Trommel
We then descend through a downward pointing, revolving tunnel (this represents the gates of Hell) before entering Hell itself.
In Hell we see many of the torments of Hell such as those described by Mary K Baxter including the pits, the cells, the giant heart and the lake of fire. Here you can read all about the different places in Hell: http://www.divinerevelations.info/
The most detailed accounts are 'Mary K Baxter's Divine Reveltation Of Hell' and 'The Revelation Of Hell By 7 Columbian Youths'. Here there is tonnes of inspiration for a dark ride.
