WOW! That place is really detailed! No wonder you guys worked so hard on the Darkness when you got back! I still love the chandeliers and the way they swayed and dropped.

I was totally thrilled to ride Ghostwood Estate during media day back in May. Darkrider did an outstanding job. The detail and targets are awesome!!! Those of you who have not been on this ride really need to experience it first hand!!

Looks great!

Our local theme park Elitch Gardens, added a dark ride this year called Ghost Blasters. The day after we closed I visited as the park stayed open one last day. I gotta say it looked nothing like this one, it was primarily flat painted scenery, all black light, just a few animations, overall I was pretty disappointed, especially after how they hyped it so much this season.

They had a very cool animated character at the entrance, and the ride was themed well, but the inside was pretty much just painted scenes.

It was built by Sally I believe.

Ok, after a quick google



Would like to see Ghostwood Estates some day, it looks like more of what I was expecting from the Ghost Blasters ride.

Very informative video. It was put together nicely. The ride looks great.

I was never a big fan of the "shoot em" dark ride but Ghostwood Estates really changed my mind about that!

There are a lot of pictures of this on our website, the video doesn't show off just how cool the sets are it more so shows off the animations.

We got a chance to hit up Kennywood (2 hours south from here) and Ghostwood Estates was really sweet!
The look and music outside made you 'step away' from the park and get drawn into the ride...
I liked the preshow too! My only gripe was doing the preshow then heading outside to load to go back inside...I wish from the preshow on it was indoors...but the ride is awesome and no two are the same! Lots to see!
