Great theme to pursue Aeron. Most of the haunted houses at carnivals tend to be more exciting on the outside than on the inside, which i guess makes sense for the carnival, but if these things were totally cool on the inside, there'd be a line & i'd ride it multiple times. In case any ride developer carny people are reading. Up the ante a bit.

Sixth picture from the top: I recognize that haunted house from my childhood. The talking tree (yes, it talked!) gave me the creeps, but I can't really recall what the inside was like, so I guess it must have been not particularly impressive.

When I was in art school a girl in one of my painting classes was getting paid to paint weird stuff in glow in the dark paint at a haunted house for those dark light rooms. I was really envious, I'd love to get to decorate and build all the crazy stuff for these places.

I love the theatrics of these places so much. The combination of sound effects, bizarre lighting, visuals, all while riding a weird little vehicle through a large dark space.

Indeed, truly being a dark ride designer would be the best job in the world ever.

Really looking forward to the rest of the week - might I suggest the Haunted House at Alton Towers, Staffs, UK? Don't know if there're any pictures on the Internet, but the inside of that thing is immense.
