is a ride that definitely deserves points for originality. It starts
innocently enough with you entering the castle where there is a short walk
through a series of spooky corridors. These are nice and atmospheric, but
nothing outstanding, at the end of them you come to the waiting area. One
problem I found here is that it's not immediately clear what's going on. It
would help if they put a clock here to indicate that your waiting for a
show, and to tell you how long a wait you've got. Once the doors open and
your on to the show, things start to get interesting.
On the stage
is a large, around life size haunted church and graveyard. Once the show
starts various animatronics start to move, and appear from places. This is
all set to the tune of Danse Macarbe (O.K. the theme tune to Jonathan Creek)
which sets the tune perfectly.
misgivings, and the reason I'm not scoring it higher is it doesn't feel like
a complete package for a ride. It feels more like a great pre show for a
Haunted Swing or another similar ride, but it doesn't have enough going for
it to stand up on it's own. Still, on it's own it's still a charming and
unique attraction that's well worth seeking out.
