Haunted Castle Dark Ride in Santa Cruz

Yo got to love this Classic Dark Ride - Haunted Castle. I love riding it every time I go to the boardwalk. He's a little history of the ride: In 2006, Boardwalk managers began planning for an extremely significant overhaul of the ride, one that would once again embody the latest dark ride technology. R&R Creative Amusement Design of Anaheim, CA provided creative direction. A brand new storyline afforded guests with a coherent and consecutive glide through an intricate castle motif with its eerie sights and noises. A few old pop-up figures were recycled from the previous ride. Concept We designed the ride to appeal to a broader age range. The I.E. Park Company of Italy constructed new double-seat cars, capable of rotating. It was no small feat for that distant company to manufacture the multi-level trackage. Riders now entered backward down a spiral descent into a darkened 10,000-square foot basement, a space two-thirds larger than its predecessor.
