View Full Version : How to build a rolling boulder scare?

Bobby 's rolling boulder scare on another post sounds like a great idea. Any tips for making this scare?
We have more manpower than cash, so someone would be able to operate it each time.

Thanks :) lol

I don't know the specifics completely, but I do know you have it on a slanted track, and that there's a small wall about a third of the size of the boulder to stop it from going any further. No ropes are attached to the boulder, it was allowed to roll completely around.

I saw this animation at a theme park attraction 3 years ago lol so I'm just going by memory. I wish I could find video or pictures of it....

I haven't been to Silver Dollar City in Branson in years. The Fire in the Hole ride had this feature. Looked awesome...

I guess the effect on Fire in the Hole is different than the rolling boulder scare
