    Back when it was a Warner Bros Movie park they had a Gremlins ride (http://www.leechvideo.com/video/view1150007.html is some footage--kidna cheasy but I'd love to hear more abotu this--sounds like a fun idea)
    Wow, both of those look amazing. I would love to see that Gremlins ride brough back, it looked like a fun concept of them taking over a movie studio. But why was Alf there?

    The alf is totally bizarre. It did make me realize Gremlins would make a great themed ride though--I thionkt he ride was briefly at Warner Bros in Australia too? Looks also like germany lost some good rides when WB dropped them as the sponsor of their park--they ahd an inner tube ride into the Neverneding Story (which would make a great theem ride) which is now basically rethemed to nothing

    Thanks for sharing that Gremlins vid. Man I sure I wish we had nice AA filled darkrides out of DIsney/Universal here in the US.

    Re: Best non Disney, Disney style rides (dark rides etc)

    I'm with you onthat--they're probably my fave kind of ride and I think many parks, like Six Flags calling themselves theme parks but having not even one dark ride is really kinda a joke

    I found a great site with pictures and videos of rides in Europe--here's the link to their De Efteling page-- man the themed coaster and Fata Morgana look spectacular! I must go!

    The link I postedhas some video of the Efteling Haunted House (spook House i think it's called) i believe it was their first attraction not part of their original Fairy Tale Forest, from the late 70s. It's basically a static show you watch--a graveyard scene where animated skeletons, tombs, etc, all "dance" to the famous Danse Macabre

    Outside of Disney or Universal, I haven't been on any hight-quality dark rides.

    Sure rides like the Haunted Mansion at Knoebels are fun, campy, hilarious and kinda freaky ... but it's not "Disney Quality".

    Does anyone have video of the Looney Tunes dark ride?

    P.S.

    Before Phantom Theatre was there, It was the Smurfs' Voyage, it was very detailed kind of like "It's A Small World" except with Smurfs.

    Yes. The exterminator is a very neat dark ride/wild mouse coaster. If anybody has a chance to see it, it is worth it.

    As for the Looney Tunes Ride video, I was wondering if anybody had video of the WB Movie World one. I have been looking and looking for one. I think Six Flags Over Texas has a Looney Tunes Western themed dark ride too.
