Afternoon Thrill Seekers,
A dark ride, as described by wikipedia is;
an indoor amusement ride where riders in guided vehicles travel through specially lit scenes that typically contain animation, sound, music, and special effects.
A dark ride does not have to be dark. They are enclosed, so all illumination is artificial, and most use special lighting to achieve theatrical effects. Selective use of darkness helps hide the ride mechanisms and increase the visual drama of the experience.
Today I thought I’d take a look at the top 10 most popular dark rides as voted for by Orlando Attraction Tickets customers. Is your favourite featured?
- Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey
- Transformers: The Ride
- Splash Mountain
- Men in Black: Alien Attack
- Spaceship Earth
- The Haunted Mansion
- It’s a Small World
- Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin
- Buzz Lightyear attractions
No one beats Harry Potter when it comes to a vote, so the really impressive win is for Transformers The Ride which despite being a new attraction managed to claim the number 2 slot!
For this top 10 we only included rides that appear in the wikipedia description for dark rides.
Which is your favourite dark ride?
