Is there any Horror ( Darkride style ) themed Music rides out there????

How about taking a Bobs or Himi and putting that theme to it? Let's face it the Snow theme is played out...

Tubs with different color flames on them would look cool...How about use of Black Lights?

Ideas for names woudl be like:
Devils Joyride ( like the Dark ride)
Infero
El Superbeasto
Diablo

I have seen quite a few photos of open-top Bob's/Himalaya rides over in Europe (Great Britain, mostly) with horror-themes. Midnight Madness, Thriller, Screamer, Terror Train (or something to that effect), Hellraiser, Freddy's Revenge, etc. For the most part they looked good.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!TongueI'm already working on one. I'm tired of the snowflakes too as I always try to mix up new Ideas in the business. I have a retro styled Alice in Wonderland gig I've started for a funhouse this spring and a dark ride themed The House on Haunted Hill(based on both original and remake).I can take a tame subject and darken the hell out of it. J&J's new Bobs has Blacklights all around it with lots of flourescent paint up on the major space around the front sceneries.
