Raging Waters San Dimas has announced the unveiling of their most thrilling new attraction yet, Dr. Von Dark’s Tunnel of Terror!
“It is a unique dark ride, themed around a scientist whose love of the darkness has driven him to pursuits that can only be described as diabolical, ” says Brett Petit, Sr. Vice President and Director of Marketing for Palace Entertainment. “At four stories tall, 300 feet long and with a flume tube that an elephant could walk through, it is going to be the “must-do” ride of the summer.”
Positioned face-to-face on new WhirlyWheel tubes, riders will spin freely while descending four stories in total darkness, accelerating them toward a giant funnel. Seemingly out of nowhere, the bottom drops out and riders are driven skyward into the upper hemisphere of the enclosed Tornado Flume. Held by centrifugal force, a series of 360-degree spins are preceded by back-to-back "vertical" banks. Riders are then jettisoned down the mouth of the funnel, down towards the certain doom that is projected on a special effects water curtain completely covering the only escape route. Dr. Von Dark’s Tunnel of Terror—the definitive answer to the ultimate question of courage: you’re not afraid of the dark, are you??
The park opens for the 2010 season in mid May. For more information contact Brett Petit at 949.797.9763 or by email, email@example.com.
